Holiday Cards – Day 2

By Cards

Hi All,

I’m back with another day of holiday-themed cards. I wanted to continue using up some of my 6×6 paper stacks and decided to go with one of my all-time favorite ways of adding a sentiment to cards. I used some rub-on appliques from Little Yellow Bicycle. I love the opaque results an applique can give to a card and it is a no-mess solution as well. I like to cut up an applique sheet and separate the images so that I don’t transfer any images I don’t want accidentally. There are many tools out there that are designed to help get the image on, but honestly, a simple craft stick will work just as well.

To finish off the card I made a faux stitched white line using a gel pen. I think this is a great way to create some beautiful cards for the holidays with minimal supplies needed.

Here’s a quick video on how it all came together.

Here’s a closer look at the finished cards.

With the extra bit of paper trimmed from the background, I created an additional card. I used the same stitched line around the edge and added a simple sentiment from the paper stack.

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

Week Three Summer Card Camp Series – Color Challenge

By Cards

Hi All,

This weeks color challenge had me stuck. I had no clue where to begin. I created multiple cards but just wasn’t feeling that it was what I wanted to share. I went back to the drawing board multiple times and finally came up with the design below. I decided that maybe the colors reminded me more of christmas and decided to dig into some of my holiday supplies to see if there was anything that I could come up with. It was at that moment, I found a fantastic set of rub on transfers from Basic Grey.

Here is this week’s color combo:
