MIXING IT UP A BIT

Good afternoon, to all my fellow card makers, crafters, customers, demonstrators and if you are total beginner welcome to my blog.

Sorry I haven't made many cards so please forgive me. I have been decluttering my and reorganising my crafty space pictures to come later

I had a request to make some thank you cards, something bright and cheery and this is what I came up with.




This card is simple to make. I realised when cutting the DSP (Designer Series Paper) vertical, my die cuts wouldn't fit.

TIP: Always check the direction of the design paper before cutting especially if it has a directional pattern.

So this dictated what I did with the sentiment. I do love this Ornate die.

Adhere to the DSP(Designer Series Paper) to the card base.

I heated embossed my "Thank You" sentiment, die cut it out, then cut both ends of the cut sentiment so that it would fit the front of the card.

I attached dimensional's to the back of the sentiment then attached to the front of the card to give it a 3D effect. Don't forget to add the insert to your finished card.

I made 10 of these cards within 2 hours. I would never have thought that making a mistake with this card would turn out to be great! What do you think?

I always say you can ever make mistakes in card making!

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog, I hope this has inspired you to do something creative in your craft space today!
