I can’t stand it! I made these ages ago. Handmade cards are one of those things that you have to do early in the season (since they store well and don’t spoil) so that you can enjoy the month without worrying about taking time for being creative. I really love doing a batch of cards using the same paper line since it coordinates so well and you get a feel for the paper and mood you want to take it. So here are a few cards I’ve made!
It is easy to make three dimensional elements by creasing the center of a holly leaf, inking the edges and using small pieces of foam mounting tape behind. Hint on a good buy: If anyone has a Costco Business Center close by, I found a huge roll of 3M foam mounting tape for $20 something dollars. I bought one YEARS ago (at Costco proper, but haven’t seen one since) and I was worried about finding another one…and I did! Well worth the investment if you are a regular card maker, especially if you like to 3-D everything like me!
I love the flower ribbon, this smaller version even better than the big flowers. Oh, the sentiments? Dollar stamps at Michaels! That allows me the freedom to spend a little more on the trims!
As long as I’m sharing, here are a couple of layouts I did with the same paper!
