This trio of cards were the projects for a class I taught at my local scrapbooking shop, Arts and Scraps. It was during an awesome two day crop! Anyway, I had some extra supplies from that event and decided to make up the card sets and sell them in my new Etsy shop. You can visit it here.
I have a few other items there as well. I plan on adding something every week. Hopefully you will stop by and take a look, perhaps something will appeal to you!
The set that I used for these cards is Vintage Vogue. The colors look awesome together: Rich Razzleberry, Certainly Celery and Whisper White.
Of the three, the bird card is my favorite. I love the bird punch! I punched the bird out of textured cardstock. I used the color spritzer with the Rich Razzleberry marker on the Whisper White cardstock, then I added the Vanilla Smooch Spray over that. It gives a beautiful sparkly finish. LOVE IT!!! Love it so much that my bottle is now empty!
The next card is the "friends" card. I used clear emossing on the "F" and on the border along the bottom. I wrapped celery satin ribbon around the cardstock and left a tail in the front. The flowers are white paper flowers with a purple gem in the center. I couldn't believe I had the perfect match for the gem, found it in one of those many unopened craft bags in my craft storage area.
I used the Faux Silk technique on the third card. I rolled the Very Vintage wheel in Certainly Celery on tissue. Then I stamped the flowers in Rich Razzleberry. For this technique you wad up the tissue into a tiny ball. I had to wait a few minutes before doing this because the ink doesn't dry immediately like it does on cardstock. Anyway, next you unwad the tissue being very careful not to tear it. Spread gluestick on your cardstock and then careful lay down the tissue, leave the wrinkles. Then trim your tissue to the size of the cardstock.
I used the Rich Razzleberry Polka Dot Grosgrain ribbon, placing a knot in the front. The sentiment says "Life happens. Love helps."
In my Etsy shop, I've bundled the cards along with envelopes and tied them with pretty celery satin ribbon. They are just waiting to zoom out in the mail.
The rest of this evening I am working on card designs for the Card Buffet happening later this month.
Thank you for visiting and have a fabulous day!
