It’s a new day – AND a new week… let’s make them awesome… make a phone call you have intended to do for a long time but haven’t ; send a card to someone whom you think needs a ‘pick me up’; do a good deed without needing/ wanting recognition.Those are just some ‘off the cuff’ suggestions – you can probably come up with some of your own as well.
Todays cards were made using the Wonders of the Season Memories and More Card Pack + the coordinating Cards & Envelopes. There are two sizes cards in this pack: approx. 3 x 4 & 4 x 6. Also in the pack are several peel & stick stickers/ numbers that can be used for embellishing. More info can be found in the Aug-Dec Mini Catalog on pg 31.
For my first card I chose this gorgeous Just Jade 3 x 4 panel and one of the stickers with the word ‘Joy’. I peeled it off carefully and put it directly onto the panel, trying to center it as best I could. I then adhered it to a piece of Gray Granite cs with liquid glue. I pulled out my Pearls Basic Jewels and put several all over the panel. I adhered dimensionals to the back and adhered this to Whisper White, then another piece of Gray Granite. This toon got dimesnionals and was placed onto the Just Jade card base. And voila – the card front was complete.
For the inside I adhered a panel of Whisper White then added one of the stickers that coordinates with the leaf pattern on the front. Done!
Card #2 – this card uses one of the larger panels… I love the feathers and the gold. I adhered this green panel to a Brushed Metallic (gold), then directly onto the Wonder of the Season Memories & More card base. I die cut several feathers from the Brushed Metallic (gold) cs, cuz I didn’t know how many I wanted to use :O) The feather comes from the Nature’s Thoughts Dies. I then took a scrap of Whisper White and cut this beautiful banner using the Snow Time Dies. Notice how the banner has this wonderful raised edge all around it? It’s beautiful!! From another piece of Whisper White I die cut the word Peace, using two elements of the word from the Joy Dies. I adhered these together using liquid glue then onto the banner, also with liquid glue. The banner got dimensionals and was mounted in the center of the card. The single feather was added with liquid glue. DONE!
Card #3 – I began by cutting the green panel from the card pack apart, saving the trims for another use later. The center panel was adhered to a strip of the Brushed Metallic (gold) cs. . I added several Wonderful Gems for a bit of glitz. I cut a panel of the Plaid Tidings 6×6 DSP and adhered it to one of the Wonder of the Season Memories & More cards. The green panel got dimensionals and went right in the center of the card. Done again!
Just like that, three Christmas cards ready for my stash. Each is so different and well, wonderful, in it’s own right. Card cuts are listed at the bottom of this post.
