I'm sharing one of my January Club cards first. It's actually one of two as I like to give them a choice of greetings or themes at times. I'll share the wedding version later this week.
I love white cards; I find them clean and eye-catching! This is made with Shimmer White card stock and the background is stamped with our Silver Encore ink. The splashes of Real Red and Black with the Silver Foil paper is gorgeous! I used a few of my favorite new products from the Occasions catalog; the Fancy Foil Silver Designer Vellum and the new Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. I'm lovin' this punch!
**Tips on adhering the Foil Vellum - use just a tiny bit of our Tombo Multipurpose Adhesive on the back side of the little silver hearts to adhere it. It hides it nicely.
Stamps - Gorgeous Grunge, Label Love, A Round Array & See Ya Later
The inside is stamped with the new stamp set in the Sale a Bration catalog called See Ya Later. Love this saying!
Next is a cute envelope card I made with my Envelope Punch Board.
It measures just 3 1/4" square. It's both a card and an envelope. Look!
Cut a piece of the new Sweet Sorbet Sale a Bration designer paper measuring 5 1/4" square. Then using the Envelope Punch Board position it at 2 1/2" and punch and score. Do this on all 4 sides.
The inside stamped layer is 3" and I used the Sweet Sorbet twine, the Banner Blast stamp set, and coordinating Banner punch. The greeting is from Yippee Skippee. I chose to adhere my stamped layer to the envelope; but you wouldn't have to.
I made a round flower from the petals image in Petal Parade, cut it out with the Starburst framelit die and layered it onto a Black Delicate Doilie die-cut.
I used markers for the 'You make me Happy' image from the See Ya Later stamp set and cut it out with the Word Bubbles framelits. Love these! The Black background is stamped with the Dictionary background stamp and White Craft ink.
Did you notice the white tiny wave border between the Black and Strawberry Slush layers? I made this with my Tiny Wave Rotary Trimmer blade. I thought it matched the Starburst framelit well.
Well that's it from me! Now you're off to see the fabulously creative Julie Davison. Enjoy the tour!!
