Hang In There! Card

This card was fun and a little raggedy to reflect what the recipient might be feeling like. When I started making it, I was thinking of something my mom always said, “I’m hanging in there, even though it might be with safety pins and bits of string”. So I incorporated the raggedy edges with the Tim Holtz Paper Distresser and then used the Easy Stitches Template with a white gel pen for the accents on the top & bottom of the card.

The metal loops are fun for lacing and hanging charms, but I thought it would be fun to use them with just a string woven through the holes. Here are the details below:

Classic All Occasion Card

This card has a classic design, but I dressed it up with Swirly Doodles (you just use a template to draw them on your project), a few flowers and some adhesive jewels.

It would be easy to make for almost any occasion, like birthday, everyday, or even a sympathy card. Hope you enjoy it, thanks for stopping by ๐Ÿ™‚

Front Pocket Greeting Card

Since it’s getting near graduation time, I thought I would show you a fun card that is great to either put a note in the front, or even a gift card. As you can see, I put a note in the front. You could also put in a bookmark or a tiny gift.

All you need is an A4 card, cardstock, decorative paper, 24″ of ribbon, some glue or scor-tape. If you choose to place a greeting in the front like I did, you will need a piece of 4″ x 3″ cardstock, a stamp, embossing powder, heatย  tool, and ink pad. Fast and easy!

Blue Jumbo Flower Card

This was a card I came up with as I was playing around the other day. I had a sheet of pearl paper that had gotten creased, so I couldn’t use it for the project I had in mind. After thinking what I could do with it, I decided to really wrinkle it! It makes a nice background design and then you don’t waste your “messed up paper”.

I also used a blue jumbo flower. It is 4″ across. I love them because they make such a great focal point, and of course, bling is always a nice touch ๐Ÿ™‚ I also used a Broken China Distress Ink Pad to darken the edges of the flower.ย  Hope you enjoy this card!

Easter Flowered Cross Card

I love simplicity with an elegant touch, and this card was so easy but has such a simple Easter message. Even though I used mostly pearl paper, it was easy to tie in the colors of the flowers by matting a few background papers under the pearl paper.

The yellow flowers are approximately 1/2″ across, and the roses are just those tiny ones you can get in a bridal department at the craft store for really cheap. Mine were from Hobby Lobby, .50 a bunch. I used a wire cutter to cut them off and hot glued the roses to the yellow flowers.

Hope you get to try this card! Thanks for stopping by ๐Ÿ™‚
