Snow Adorable!

Got a really cute one today.  I was inspired by a few blogs.

I like the clean simple layouts at Global Design Project. I just haven’t taken the time to play along until now. Here is their sketch  –

Nice, right?

And, great colors can always be found at Pals Paper Arts

PPA-283-Jan14

So. How did I combine the two? I really liked the Snow Friends Framelits. Why not make a Valentine themed card with them –

Gosh, isn’t adorable??? And, it’s a shaker too!!!

Close up of my shaker frame. I made my shaker layers with a piece of Window Sheet, craft foam, and another Window Sheet. I used Tombow Liquid Glue to adhere the sheets to the foam. It works very nicely! Since this is a heavy card, my base is the Thick Whisper White Card stock. Much more supportive.

Such a fun card with lots of dimension, you agree?

I’d love to hear what you think!

Each set had different shaker pieces. These had glimmer paper and the corrugated paper.

Shakin’ It Up for a Birthday

Taking a little time away from class prep to share this terrific shaker card.

A customer asked me to have a shaker card on the Card Buffet last month because she too was having trouble making them work.

I’ve tried lots of different ways. This, by far, has got to be the best.

I thinks this is just simply fun.

I did a different style of card last month at my class. This was me just testing the process.

If you’re interested in how I did this, leave me a comment.

Window Wonderful Wreath

We are getting to the favorites of my 2nd Annual Christmas Card Class.

As I said before, I designed several cards and had a time choosing the actual cards to reproduce for the class. This card was no exception. Take a look –

And from the side –

It’s stunning isn’t it?

The window sheet holds the front panel together.

This was a lot easier than it looks. Start by cutting the wreath and emboss it. Cut the bow too. The center of the bow is a punched circle.

The window sheet is cut 4 1/4 x 5 7/16 which is slightly less than 5 1/2 to allow for the fold. Adhere with Sticky Strip. Then add the bottom panel, also with Sticky Strip.

The sentiment on the inside of the card is visible. You have to make sure when you stamp it, it clears the wreath and is even between the panels. To ensure this, I made a template for ease of stamping. No mess ups either! Whew!

Lastly, adhere the wreath to the front of the card. Bow too.

So, see, pretty easy, right?

Now, when I originally designed this card, I designed it in Basic Black and Pool Party. It was also nice. But, I had to change it for color reasons. You’ll see later.

What do you think so far? Some nice cards, right? I’d love to know what you think!
