Hello and happy Monday! This is the third card from the baby themed set that I am sharing today:
I simply used the leftover papers and added a paper flowers, some ribbon and a button from my stash to the card. The stamping is again done using Stampin´ Up! stamps.
I really like the color combination of greens, light blues and oranges on this card. I usually don´ t make set of similar cards, but for some reason this time, I just could not stop. And it was a good way to use up the papers, too.
Hello and happy Sunday! Today I am sharing another baby themed card with you:
There´ s a brand new baby boy in town and he deserves a big welcome, so there, this is the card for the occation :).
I used Moda Scrap papers, Elizabeth Craft Designs die cut dies and Stampin´ Up! stamps with Distress Oxide “moved lawn” tone for this card.
I actually ended up creating three cards in one sitting. I will share the last one tomorrow :). Once I started making a christening card, I noticed that I had enough papers left to do a few more, so I made a set. But all for different occations.
Wishing you a lovely start into the new week tomorrow! xxx, Sanna
Hello lovelies and happy Thursday! Today I am stopping by to share yet another wedding card with you. This time in pink tones. This card too, has a gift card pocket inside it.
I again used the Dani Peuss July kit papers for this card. The pink paper on the backgroud is from the kit. The other papers are from my own stash and older, but since the colours worked so well together, I used them.
The die cutting is again done using Elizabeth Craft Designs dies and the chipboard piece is by Wycinanka.
I also added some silver peel-off stickers to the background for additional detail and layered everything else on top of them. I also sneaked in some flower stickers from my older stash which also worked so well with the rest. I love adding and combining old with the new (also fits the wedding theme very well ;-)..) to my cards.
Inside the card there is plenty of room for wishes and the gift card. As you can see the Dani Peuss kit papers go a long way on a slimline card.
I also added plenty of half pearls to the card, because they make the card even more festive. I just hope now that the recipients will love the card.
Here is also a quick flip-thru video on the 3 recent cards I created – hope you like it:
Hope you liked what I shared and got inspired by it! I enjoy making slimline cards so much at the moment. I haven´ t done a mixed media card in a while – I wonder if I could still do one ;-). But I think it is very healthy to change the routine from time to time – otherwise it will all get boring.
Have a great Friday and see you during the weekend again with some more project shares. xxx, Sanna
Hello lovelies! Today I am sharing another slimline card with a gift card pocket inside. This time it is a wedding card.
On the front I have used a green paper from the Dani Peuss July Kit as the card background. These papers have the perfect size for slimline cards, by the way. If you tilt the paper, you have enough material to fill in 3 pages of the card (see how I used the same paper inside the card in the photos later).
For decoration I used some older stickers and papers, as well as Wycinanka chipboards, from my older stash. The die cut dies I have used here are by Elizabeth Craft Designs. I have plenty of layers on top of each other here to create a really romantic cluster of leaves, pearls, ribbons and stickers.
Inside the card I created a pocket on the left side to place in a gift card or even money and punched the border with a Martha Stewart border punch. Remember how we used to collect these quie a few years ago? I have been trying to incorporate old product and “old” tools (do tools get old/go out of fashion?) into my recent cards. They still work like a dream and if the embellishments match too, why not use them?
The cream toned paper is by Prima Marketing and also from my older stash, but as the color worked togehter so well, I used it here.
I really like how this card turned out. It is festive for sure, so I am hoping the recipients will like it too.
See you soon again with another wedding card share! xxx, Sanna
Hello everyone and happy July!! Today I´m again up over at the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog with another guest design team card project and tutorial. Here is what I created for this months post:
For this card I used the Planner Essentials die cut dies – I´ve always wanted to use them for cardmaking the moment I saw them. I also added some die cut dies from the Art Journal series as well as some of the ModaScrap ones (still adore them!).
The basic idea of this card was to create a folded card base that withholds a pocket, where one can tuck a gift-card. This particular gift-card was created using the planner dies. The papers are from my older stash (goes all the way back to 2005). But the dies, the stamps and the glitter and adhesives are all by Elizabeth Craft Desings. For steps and more details, do also hop over to the ECD blog to read my full post!
Here is the step-by-step video for you to watch – hope you enjoy it!
This card is very simple to make, once you have all the pieces prepared and it looks very presentative also. A perfect way to send a loved one greetings and a gift-card to say you are thinking about them!
I hope you enjoyed this months tutorial. I´ll be sharing more project here on my blog throughout July and be back at the ECD blog in August again.
By the way, since the papers I used for this card are partly very old and not available anymore, I tried to find you nice alternatives, just see the product links for that.
