My cards that I’m linking up today were totally inspired by the inspiration photo from Festive Friday Challenge blog. Oh what fun! I always enjoy FF designer Ardyth’s CAS/graphic cards and I love following her because my mom’s name was Ardyth! Funny story for you…I remember so well coming home from school and saying to my mom, “what is your name again?” lol I could never remember her name and the beginning of every year we had to fill out a form with our parents names on it! lol My dad always called her mom, so it was rare that I heard her name as a grade schooler. Evidently they couldn’t remember her name either cuz I was the 7th of 8 kids to come through that grade school! You’d think by #7, they would’ve know all about us Bryants! lol
This is a 5 ½ inch square card… kraft card base…poppystamps Merry Christmas Background die cut in black card-stock…Memory Box Snowy Tree Border die cut in white card-stock.
Very straight forward CAS card! YAY! love it!
First pass through the Big Shot to cut the Snowy Tree…then back through with the tan mat and shims to emboss the snow detail…leave the cut in the die…turn it over… dauber on Tsukineko’s glue pad through the holes in the die…burnish on the Art Glittering System’s Winter White glitter.
Strips of white card-stock glued behind a couple of the words…
Also linking this card up to some other challenges…
ABC Christmas Challenge – Q for quick and easy – my card was in the top 3! Thank you ladies!
My next card was the second card I made but it kinda backfired on me…. ugh…every time I try to put white, ink, paint or even gesso over black card-stock, it turns blue!!!! grrrrr *sigh* Oh well, I’m posting this anyway. : )
Pretty much the same as the card above except the card is 6 inches square and I used the poppystamps Frozen Flakes Border die.
My last card was the first I started with the Festive Friday inspiration photo colors in mind…
I did some experimenting here too, so it’s not perfect! hehe I’ll do a video soon on gluing and tell about it then.
Memory Box Musicality die, Tall Taper Candle and Joyful combo rubber stamp. The background paper is from an older Basic Grey Kraft 6×6 paper pad.
I used my mini Perfect Layers Tools and mat with black and then to cut the three sides of the card. Link in the sidebar and below in the links too. Be sure to use my code to get 5% off when you shop!
