Another productive week for me in my cardmaking marathon. Since the weather has been uncooperative, I’ve managed to eek out quite a few cards. Not sure what I’ll do with them all but the journey has been fun!
On one of my cardmaking groups we had a die cut swap. My great partner, Cathy P sent me tons of fabulous die cuts. I’m anxious to use them all! Here’s one of the dies used in a central motif.
This bow card was a challenge. I believe there is a die for this bow but I decided to make my own template and hand cut. Lots of tedious cutting but you must agree, how cute is this! NOTE: Textured cardstock doesn’t work very well. The lines in the stock cause the bow to crimp as you form the curves. Smooth, medium weight cardstock is best.
This card was also a challenge. I wanted to make this card so that you can substitute the day of the week for the “Your Birthday” flag. Depending on which day of the week you will eliminate, I needed some way to temporarily hold the flags until I know which day I will replace. I found removable glue dots which worked out perfectly.
I will have more to share with you next week so come back next Friday. If anyone wants more info on any of these cards, just email me.
Have a great weekend.
