Cards, Cards, Cards – Cutting paper is fun

As I am trying to use up my vast amount of supplies and trying to come up with some new things so that I can perfect them and list them on the Etsy site.  ———> Link on the right!!!    You will see below that I created 3 cards that I am trying to just get the ideas out there and testing some new ideas.  Would love feedback on any of them.

Card #1

Here is an Easter card I came up with.  The point was to have a sunrise in the back the crosses and He’s risen are printed on velum and then I made a border.   They are put on a 4×6 card with foam squares to give more depth.

the background could maybe use some work but you get the idea.  I have more ideas for this one and will work on other variations.

Card #2

A sympathy card that I made for the Mother-In-Law.    I wanted to use the velum again and was trying to figure out the best way to keep it muted!

I made the grey background out of the shimmery sliver paper.  I cut the velum long so that it would wrap around the sides so that I could secure it in the back.  I then added a boarder which luckily fit.  It wasn’t exactly planned when I made the “with Sympathy” and then added bling embellishments on the sides.   This card ended up being extra special for my mother in law because the flowers for Nana’s funeral were all White and Red, which I didn’t know.  Intuition at it’s finest.

Card #3

Super simple Easter card.   This is what happens when you only have an hour to make 3 cards.

Simple Easter card

I used my favorite new tool, my sizzix bigkick, to create the letters in various colors.  I wasn’t even going to attempt to try to make them straight so I deliberately made them whimsy.    Added a flower and some bling embellishments and off we went.

Hope you liked these card ideas.  There will be more to come as I come up with ideas and please go and check out the Etsy site for all your invitation needs.  Prices for digital cards are just $5 and I have them done in less than 24 hours!!!

Have a Happy Easter Everybody!!!!

See you soon!!!
