Our cards for December card club were some of those that I lovingly replicated from others I have seen around the web, magazines, blogs, etc — and now that it’s been a few weeks, I need to remember where I found the originals. Eeps! Here we go.
This first one is very simple with lots of layers.
It’s a pretty basic layout, easy to put together. Always a good thing. In card club we added a rhinestone to the tip of the tree for a little bling.
For this one we used the vintage wallpaper embossing folder, and brayered over it with cherry cobbler ink. I’ve seen this technique all over the place lately, but I believe I saw it on Patty’s blog first.
This layout was partly inspired by a birthday card from my cute friend Jen. Are you reading this, Jen?? And I HAD to use my dasher stamp somewhere! I love this one!! It’s a single stamp (not sold in a set), and a favorite for sure.
Again, some rhinestone bling. I’m a little addicted to those. They are so inexpensive and easy to stick here and there. (Love the pearls, too.)
Our 3rd project was this cute gift. This one was copied very directly from the cute Ms. Becky. I even used the same snowman inside from Punch Pals, since he’s so darn cute.
This one is fun because it can be either a gift card holder or just a cute card.
And see this little trick I figured out? If you need a quick faux button, use your 1/16 hole punch to make 2 bitty holes side by side in a scrap. Then center those holes in your small flower punch (picturing this w/out a photo??), and you have this button-ish shape. Add a little crystal effects for that button shine, of course.
Phew, busy day, must sleep! Tootle-oo!
