Good morning all. Angela here as a guest designer. For today’s tutorial I have put together a fairly straightforward wedding card using Susan Tierney-Cockburn’s new Forget Me Not die set in keeping with the traditional “something blue” for the bride, along with several other of my favourite dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs.
Hi there, Artlings! It’s Suzanne here today with a simple, elegant version of Always & Forever. This is perfect for a guy for Valentine’s Day, but by changing the colour of the gently sponged ink, you can pink it right up! By adding dimension to each layer, the result is a super special card for a super special person. Wouldn’t this make a stunning wedding or anniversary card?
This card is so simple to make. It took me longer to photograph it than to make it. And the photo really doesn’t do it justice!
Here is how you can make this card!
Hi Crafty Friends,
As the cardstock I selected to use for my card was duo-tone (also called “duplex”) – dark red on one side and light red on the other – I decided to keep to the three colors of white, dark red and light red for my card. By keeping the insert loose, I could turn it with the back showing when the card is closed, revealing the light red through the openings of the “petals”.
Hello there! Diana here with a soft card for a friend who would love a reminder of what you think of her. You can make her day by telling her she is always amazing! The flowers are made of felt so it even feels nice! I went with different shades of pink but it would look great in other colors. Check to see what you have in your craft room! Read on to see how I made this card.
Calendar Makeover by Judi Kauffman
My friends love knowing that I will turn their old calendars into something brand new! It’s a January ritual that extends throughout the year. Here it is March and I’m still having fun slicing and dicing the pages…
I cut some of the pages and fold them into envelopes. I cut other pages into small pieces for layering onto card fronts and gift tags! If the paper is heavy enough, I’ll even die cut some sentiments.
When I’m done, I give some of the cards and envelope to the friends who donated the calendars! I get to have the fun of repurposing would have otherwise gone into the recycling bin, they get to enjoy the calendar again in its second incarnation.
It’s Frances here today with another tutorial to share with you. I have been wanting to make a shaker card for a while, so I decided to create one using the new Heart Background die to make an anniversary card.
Hi there, artlings! It’s Suzanne here today with a card that is easy to assemble yet has the clean and simple look that makes it stand out in a crowd.
One of the members of the Quietfire Design team was married this week, so to celebrate, we’ve been sharing all sorts of projects using the new lovey-dovey A Way With Word dies! Cherish, Forever, Always, Mr and Mrs and the Calligraphic Elements were designed with weddings, anniversaries and newborns in mind.
Our newlywed shared that she was going with white and grey (or silver) on the big day, so this card evolved in my creative space! I dropped in a hint of pink and I just love how it turned out.
