Heather and I decided to do some card making with the Die Cuts With a View and My Mind’s Eye paper stacks this week. We have been invited to a lot of weddings lately so Heather wanted to make a few cards for them, so a few nights ago we put the kids to bed, threw in a movie, and made cards. Heather’s “Legacy Card” is very fancy and has a nice wedding feel to it with the ribbon, Vintage Lace Accents, and Spiral Blossom that she used. Heather loves the spiral blossom and it really makes for a nice three dimensional card. She left the interior dark and wrote a nice little congratulations note with a white ink pen. It really turned out nice don’t you think? Die Cuts With a View’s STARDUST Mat Stack was the perfect paper to use as the background because it looks very elegant with the interesting designs and gold foil they have added to it.
My “Bee Happy” card isn’t as fancy but I had a lot of fun with it. I grabbed the My Mind’s Eye HONEY paper pad and Cricut’s Just Because Cards cartridge and made my card a bee theme. The papers in the Honey paper stack made this card a breeze, I just had to cut it out and glue it on. The most work was the “Bee Happy” words, I cut the same letters out in both a dark and light yellow and then cut the light ones into strips and glued them onto the dark yellow letters. I though after that it would have been a lot easier just to find a striped paper and cut it out with it but hey I like doing things the hard way. I added a paper from the stack to go on the inside just to finish it off.
It was a fun night of card making and hey we saved ourselves a trip to the store to buy a few cards. Being a designer is a lot of fun because if forces us to get down and get creative. It is way too easy to let life get in the way and keep putting off the things that you really enjoy doing.
