Hi everyone! It’s me, Tonya and I am here to share my card I created for this month’s birthday theme challenge.
I have been really into pastel colors lately and decided I would start with a pink piece of 8 1/2″ x 5″ which I folded in half to create the card base. I cut a piece kraft and printed cardstocks slightly smaller than the front and inked all the edges before adhering to the base of the card.
Hi everyone! This month’s theme is Christmas here at Crafty Card Gallery and I am here to share my take on this month’s theme. Also if you didn’t know there is only 36 days until Christmas. It is so hard to believe that it is right around the corner. YIKES! I have been on a quest to try and use up scraps of cardstock on projects and this is what I came up with just using bits and pieces I had laying around.
I started with a 6″x6″ piece of Red Plain Linen Cardstock which I folded to 3″x6″ to create the card base. I ran a scrap of Brick Glitter Cardstock through my diecut machine using the Spellbinders Long Classic Scalloped Rectangle die and then I embossed it with the Snow Globe folder. Next I gathered more scraps and cut into banners and adhered to the card. The little tab that sticks out on the card is actually a clothing tag that I inked the edges and covered with some cardstock, sequin and dew drop.
The little “elf” girl I found online but I can’t remember where so if I do remember I will add the link. I printed her off and fussy cut out. I cut a little pointy hat out and glued it and the little girl to the card base.
I used the poinsettia diecut and cut the flower out three times and shaped with a stylus. I glued together, added a bit of green Ric Rac and metallic thread along with a gold sequin and dew drop to finish off the poinsettia.
If you have any questions about this card please let me know.
Thanks for stopping by, hope your Wednesday is awesome and enjoy creating!
Hi everyone! It me, Tonya and I am here to share a card that I created. This month’s theme is butterflies and this is what I came up with.
I started by using the Scallop Card #3 diecut which I cut from Gold and Kraft and Damask cardstock. I then stamped the sentiment (from Paper Studio) onto a piece of white cardstock, inked the edges and adhered two pearl Dew Drops to the swirls on the sentiment.
Next I cut from a variety of Canvas Corp cardstocks: Turquoise and White, Hot Pink and White, Lime Green and White Ribbon and Blue and Ivory Mini Dot Reverse) the banners and butterflies (retired Stamping’ Up! Sizzix Beautiful Butterflies). I inked the edges of the banners and then adhered all pieces to the cardbase.
I used a 7 gypsies Photo Turn (retired) for the body of the butterfly and I added sequin and a Dew Drop for the head. If you have any questions about this card please let me know.
Hi everyone! It’s me, Tonya and I’m here to share a card I created. This month’s theme is chocolate, cookies or sweets. Well, since I have an embossing folder of cupcakes and I found this cupcake journal card which is from Crate Paper I thought this is the perfect combo. The cardbase measures 4″x5″ folded and the cardstock is from Craft Smith Gradients Collection.
I added a red sequin and a red dew drop to the cupcake to finish off this card. I went simple this month because of the fact that I pinched for time and for fear of loosing electricity since we got about an inch of rain which turned to ice but so far so good I still have power. 🙂
If you have any questions please let me know.
Hi everyone! It’s me, Tonya and I’m here to share a quick card I created. For this month’s challenge we had to come up with a thank you card.
I started with a folded 3″x6″ piece of cardstock as my base and cut a piece of typewriter cardstock slightly smaller than the base of the card.
I dug through my mass collection of scraps and then cut various sizes of cardstock which I adhered to the bottom half of the card. The vintage typewriter is a digital image I found online and can’t remember where I found it. Just do a google/bing search for vintage typewriters and there’s a ton of images out there.
I printed and then fussy cut the the typewriter out, used a little chalk ink to give it an old look. I also cut a slit in the typewriter so I cut add the “Just a note of thanks!”(printed off the computer) in and make it look like it was actually typed out. I finished off the card with two little hand cut banners, button, sequin and a dew drop.
The hardest thing about this card is the fussy cutting. 🙂 If you have any questions please let me know.
Thanks for stopping by, hope your Sunday is wonderful and enjoy creating!
