Hello Note Cards Floral Series No.1

By | Cards, Planner Stationary & Accessories | No Comments

Hello All,

I can’t even begin to describe to you how excited I am to share with you a series of notecards I have created. They are grouped in sets and are absolutely stunning in person. I tried my best to capture how colorful they are in pictures. These cards feature a gorgeous floral pattern on vellum and coordinate beautifully with the flat matte cardstock and gold cord. The interior of the cards are left blank so they are fully intended for any purpose and occasion. The bold hello sentiment is layered with dimension and even has a bit of a blue shadow peeking through.

Here’s a closer look!

Each card measures 4.25 x 5.5 inches and fits beautifully into a standard A2 size mailing envelope. I can’t wait to send these beauties out in the mail soon!

Wishing You The Best – Colored Vellum

By | Cards | One Comment

CS4_participantHi all,

Today’s card was truly a challenge for me. I loved the technique of colored vellum shared in class and thought I would give it a try. I have quite a bit of vellum on hand but typically I use it with heat embossing and have never thought to color it with paints/watercolors. For this card I wanted to achieve some vibrant colors so I thought I’d paint using my Inktense pencils. The pencils worked fabulously with the vellum, but I did have a lot of paper curling. I think for future attempts, it would be best to tape down all edges and see if that helps in keeping the vellum flat.

Additionally, this card was created using 5 key elements (as that was the primary challenge of the day in the class). Here are the items I chose. Grey card stock, white vellum, a sheet of 6×6 designer paper, 1 sentiment stamp set & a set of Inktense pencils.

*I did use common tools to create the card such as a trimmer and adhesives.

Folding Card Ideas – 3 Fold Card

By | Cards | No Comments

Hi All,

I’m back with another card idea for you. This one is inspired by a book I received called “Folding Card Ideas (I believe you can find the book on Amazon). Although this  book is jam packed with card ideas & drawings, there are little to no instructions on how to create the cards. So I put together a little card sketch of this one & guide you through the assembly.

Here’s the finished look.
