Using SCAL2 To Create a Card

By Cards


Hi all,

For today’s card, I’ve decided to try to recreate a rendition of a card design I saw by Kristina Werner on her blog. I felt this card layout would be perfect for a friend who was missing her family. To create the window and curtains on the card, I used my die cutting machine and created the template on my computer. I created a window using 4 squares and welded together some other shapes to create the curtain and butterfly cuts.

For extra detail, I used a white gel pen around the edges and some ribbon to finish off the card.

Thanks for visiting & feel free to leave comments!

His&Hers Day 3 (Masculine Card)

By Cards


Hi all,

For todays masculine card, we were given the tast to create a sentiment card. I found this to be quite challenging in that I didn’t really have any images to represente a masculine theme. I used what I had and tried to create a customized sentiment. I used the same technique as the female card. First I stamped the house image in a light toned ink and then watercolored above it.  Here is the result!

Thankful Heart – Valentine’s Day Series

By Cards

With All My Heart

Hi all,

Welcome to Day 4 of my Valentine’s Day Card Series. I’m having so much fun experimenting with all my supplies and creating more cards for you each day. I’m really trying to use up my stash with minimal waste. I guess that’s the beauty in card making – you can find inspiration from even the tiniest bit of material. For this card, I wanted to break out some stamps and really concentrate on a CAS (create a sentiment) card. I liked the concept of Valentine’s Day, but I wanted it to also double as a card that could be used any time of year. I think this card suits the bill really well. Telling someone you’re thankful is good to do year round, don’t wait for a special occasion on that!

Thanks so much for stopping by and see you again next time.
