Here is one of my latest cards, a quick, simple layout that can be used for any occasion.
Finally I have a few new cards to post today. My goal of posting a bit more often hasn’t exactly worked out so far but I really haven’t been doing much crafting for a while.
My crafting area was so out of control that I didn’t have a spot to create. I had taken over the area where my computer is and that was just as bad. I started cleaning up each area and ended up with two boxes of crafting supplies I need to put away.
While I was trying to organize some of the supplies I came across a package of tags that I decided to stamp and use on some cards. I used a few different inks and stamps to create a collage tag with a bit of a vintage feel.
I had a pack of five tags so made a set of five cards, each with a different butterfly accent. I used walnut ink to color some red and white bakers twine to match the card.
It will be nice to have a few Mother’s Day cards ready for my Etsy shop.
I was able to make one more card with the supplies I had out and used every scrap of the patterned paper I used.
I love that I was able to use up a package of tags and a whole sheet of patterned paper with no leftover scraps.
I love how all this pink just pops out with the black card base.
The Eiffel tower always makes me think of romance so was perfect for this card and the cute felt bee was just too cute to not add to this card.
These are some of the dollar store and discount store supplies that I used on this and other valentine/love themed cards I recently made. Felt and snack picks from a dollar store, heart paper doilies and polka dotted tape from Target.
I thought the card was finished but added the XOXO ticket sticker at the last minute and it really added the finishing touch.
I was happy to find that the pink in the paper matched the rolled felt flowers and some stripped ribbon I had in my stash. One good thing having a large stash means I usually can find matching items. ;) Yep, a good reason to have a good stash!
