Size:  Vertical top fold A2 card

Extra Details: I began this card by covering a white card base with a panel of pink card stock. I cut the front flap of the card short so I could add a scalloped border of patterned paper.

I stamped the xoxo border along the bottom of the pink card stock in two shades of pinkish ink. I also stamped the larger XOXO in one of the same inks. I added an outline heart.

For the sentiment, I stamped and fussy cut the labels form the stamp set. I added an ampersand that I die cut from some patterned paper.

To finish the card, I adhered the ampersand flat the card base and used foam tape on the labels.

Size:  Vertical side fold A2 card

Extra Details: I began this card by covering a white card base with a panel of red card stock from the kit. I stamped the sentiment and hearts in black ink.

I die cut a strip of patterned paper with a scalloped border die. I layered the patterned paper on some of the black card stock. I re-aligned the scalloped border die and cut the black card stock to match the patterned paper.  Then I adhered the scalloped strips to the card front. I left a small sliver of red card stock on the left for interest.

Mitten Tag Card

January 25, 2018

I am finally getting back into the usual routine after the holidays. This card was inspired by three challenges this week.

Details

Size:  Vertical top fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I began this card with a 4.25 x 5.5 inch panel of grey cardstock. I stamped the solid diamonds in white pigment ink all over the panel. Once the ink was dry, I stamped the quilted lines in a darker grey ink.

I die cut a tag shape from some white card stock. I added the sentiment to the white tag using the same darker grey ink and some red ink.

I die cut the mittens from red card stock. I added some detail with the white and grey inks. As a finishing touch, I added a small white heart that I die cut.

I used some red and white twine to add a bow to the top of the tag. I adhered the tails of the bow to the mittens using regular scotch tape. I adhered one bow flat to the tag and the other with some foam tape.

Lastly, I added the tag to the grey panel and adhered everything to a white card base.

Details

Size:  Heart Shaped Panels about 6 by 6.25 inches

Extra Details:  I began this banner by die cutting all of the large hearts. I used two shades of pink card stock because I didn’t have enough of either shade to only use one. Then I die cut the house border from some red card stock. I used a stitched hill side die to create hills for each panel. I adhered the house and hills together. Then I used the large heart die to re-cut each house and hill section to make lining everything up easier. I added some clouds to the sky area with white pigment ink.

I stamp all of the images on some smooth white card stock. I colored everything with markers that my kiddos gave me for Christmas. I like the variety of colors but I am not very good shading with those markers yet. I fussy cut everything out leaving a small white border.

I used glue dots to adhere all of the images to the heart shaped panels. Then I remembered that I hadn’t included the letters for Welcome yet. So I die cut them from some red card stock and used liquid glue to adhere them to the panels.

Size:  Vertical side fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I started by die cutting one of the patterned papers with a large cross stitched rectangle die. I adhered this to a white card base. I added a strip of patterned paper across the card front. I layer the cut apart of the typewriter which I matted on a scrap of a red patterned paper.

I used the stamp set for the sentiment. I stamped the words in a reddish ink and fussy cut them out. I adhered them along the strip.

Extra Details:  I started by die cutting one of the patterned papers with a large cross stitched rectangle die. I adhered this to a white card base. For the sentiment, I used one of the cut apart panels. I used two red cut aparts to mat the sentiment panel. I like the interest it added with its missing corners. I adhered this panel to the card with foam tape. As a finishing touch, I added a puffy sticker under the sentiment.
