Holiday Cards – Day 7

By | Cards | No Comments

Hi All,

Welcome back to a new week of Holiday Cards for this 2017 season. I am on day 7 and have a simple card idea that really anyone can do. All you really need is some basic paper supplies and maybe some pencils or markers to decorate and you too can create this type of card.

To create my card I used some printed vellum I have had in my stash for quite some time. It actually comes from a valentine’s themed stack from Cosmo Cricket. It was from a release a few years ago and I think is now entirely out of stock. I think vellum or a thin paper is actually best for this type of project.

First, you’ll need to cut down your paper into a few squares. Mine was 3, 2.5, 2, and 1.5-inch squares. I then folded my paper in half and then folded the corners up to the middle fold line to create triangles.

You can see how quickly this card came together here

I hope you give this type of card a try. You could even change the overall dimensions to make this a fun gift tag to add on top your wrapped gifts this holiday season.

I hope I’ve inspired you to get a little more handmade with your holiday gifts this year – I always like to mix in handmade with my gifts each season.

I’ll be back tomorrow with another holiday card and I’ll see you again real soon.

Gold Foil Floral Note Cards

By | Cards, Planner Stationary & Accessories | No Comments

Hi All,

Welcome back! I’m on that summertime floral kick once more! Here’s a card using a similar pink and yellow themed floral but with a slight change. The black brush strokes are now replaced with whimsical little hearts – did you notice?! This pattern is typically not something I would gravitate towards, but the use of lots of white space and those fun little hearts made it incredibly fun to work with.

For this card, I broke out a 6×6 pad of kraft papers that I have and gold foiled some stripes on to it. I then trimmed down those pieces to give my card what I like to call ‘suspenders’! Just below those suspenders (lol) I have a gorgeous embossed floral that I used on the base of my card. I feel like it resembles white lace on this project. Very classy indeed!

Here’s a peek at the interior of the card as well.

Hope you enjoyed reading about my latest card and I will be back tomorrow with another project!

Summer Time Floral Note Cards

By | Cards, Planner Stationary & Accessories | No Comments

Hi All,

Welcome back! Today I’m bringing in a splash of some summer colors. These soft pinks and lemon yellows just make me smile. These cards coordinate so beautifully with the cards I have been sharing previous days. I don’t know what it is about these floral patterns, but I can’t seem to get enough!

It’s all about the details with this card. I choose to start it off with an embossed dot card base and some small strips of turquoise green and kraft brown to pull in some extra color. The pattern itself is so unique to me in that it has several ‘patches’ of black brush strokes – it’s quite stunning in person. To finish off the card I added a gold cord and tied in a bow.

Here’s a look at the interior of the card as well.

I love these clean and simple cards! They make great gifts for everyday events!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I’ll see you again real soon with a new project.

Embossed Floral Stripes Note Cards

By | Cards, Planner Stationary & Accessories | No Comments

Hi All,

I’m making a switch up from the white cards to a something a bit more different today. These card bases are embossed with tiny dots along the entire front. Truth be told, I struggled with the concept for this card for some time. I really loved the floral pattern, but I wanted to add some more color and didn’t quite know where to add them in. After a ton of brain storming, I decided to add in a textured light turquoise cardstock in small stripes. These stripes measure just about 1/8″. They coordinate perfectly with the small dot size of the embossed background.

This card is so elegantly finished, that I feel it can fit several occasions like bridal showers, wedding, birthday, office note cards and so many more events.

Here’s a look at the interior of the card. Just look at all those teeny tiny dots!

Hope you enjoyed taking a look at this card and I hope to see you next time!
