My last two cards I made for my secret sister. I used embossing folders on both of these. I love the look of all white cards, and that is what I was going for at first and then just couldn't help myself and ended up adding a touch of color.
Quickutz -- Happy Birthday embossing folder
Spellbinders -- Floral Ovals
Inkadinkado -- Greetings/ Salutations stamp set
Martha Stewart -- Leaves and flower punches
Tulip bead paint-- white for flower centers
When I have small pieces of paper left that I feel is too small to really use on a card, I keep them in a little bin and then in the evenings I can punch them out and save them in envelopes so they are all ready to put on a card.
This second card I used my brayer to add ink to the embossing folder to give it that blue background. I used some chalk to go over the leaves.
Cuttlebug -- Leafy Branch embossing folder
Leaf -- Silhoutte cut
Distress ink -- tumbled glass
Martha Stewart -- flowers & tag punches
Making memories -- buttons
Inkadinkado -- Greetings/salutations sentiment stamp
Tulip bead paint -- Silver (flower center)
Next time I will show you the packaging I made for the cards and the Calendar.
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and saying hello :) Hope your day is a sunny one!
