Last week, I saw these cute little turkey place cards made by Monika Davis. I loved them so much that I just had to try a couple. They use some of the awesome Plaid Tidings patterned paper from Stampin' Up! and a variety of punches and dies. They are quick and easy to make and would be a great craft to make with kids (or on your own!) to help create a festive Thanksgiving table. You'll find the link to a video below and the complete cutting dimensions and supply list. So, on y go! Let's get stamping.
Last night's Card Class and Game Night featured the Playing with Patterns Designer Series Paper and the Way to Goat and Ridiculously Awesome stamp sets from Stampin' Up! Have I mentioned how much I love these goats?! They're just so dang cute! So, on y go! Let's get stamping.
To get the patterned paper properly adhered to the front flap, I started by gluing the thin strip of the Playing with Patterns patterned paper under the front flap. Then, I carefully laid the wider strip of Playing with Patterns DSP on the interior of the card so that the edge lined up with the right edge of the interior of the card. I put a thin line of glue on the end of the interior of the card front and then closed the card to adhere the patterned paper in just the right spot.
Cutting Dimensions for the G.O.A.T Card Design
Today's cards are all about texture! I have lots and lots of half-inch strips of white cardstock. When I trim Whisper White cardstock for the inside of my cards it results in half-inch leftover. I put these in a bin and use them for sentiment strips. But there's no hope of ever using them all up. So today, I decided to come up with card making ideas that use half-inch strips of white paper scraps. The resulting card designs are white on white with lots and lots of texture!
Be sure to go all the way through my post and look for the list of participants at the end. Then hop over to their blogs as well to see their gorgeous designs! It's such an honor to be hopping with this amazing group of designers. So, on y go! Let's get stamping.
For my final card, I took longer strips, which I had also embossed, and created a basket weave. I adhered this to a piece of 5 1/4" x 4" Whisper White cardstock. Then, I trimmed the edges of the strips of cardstock to match the edge of the piece of 5 1/4" x 4" cardstock. I also glued the ends of the flaps on the front of the card so that everything would stay neatly woven together. Then, I glued this to a standard Whisper White card base (8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4").
For the greeting, I used the Joy dies and adhered the cut pieces to another rectangle cut using the Stitched Rectangles dies. I added a few pearls for a little shine.
