The cartridges I used today are Quilted Christmas, Sentimental and Simply charmed
For my first project I used the Quilted Christmas to make a set of cards
When I cut my first card I noticed all the cut outs stayed in place perfectly on the mat.
Not wanting to waste the pieces I applied glue to them all quickly and put a piece of paper over the top and pressed in place...
While I let the glue sit and make sure it's really dry I moved on to my next card
I used green glitter paper and cut the card image from the candle function
I added glitter glue and gems to make the image pop and a red piece of paper behind on the inside. It's finished off with a pretty bow.
And the glue dried on my first piece so I trimmed and added it to a card base with some pretty ribbon.
This is the original card. The paper inside the red card is the same as the front of the card above so they match.
Here is my trio of cards from Quilted Christmas
Since we have gone pink I wanted to make sure I keep with that, I used pink ink to stamp my name on the back. The pink didn't show on the red card so I stamped over it in green but it's still there.
This card is from the Sentimental cartridge. I used my script embossing folder to add the layer to the front. This card is backwards, the greeting is on the front and the decoration is on the inside, if you've been following me for a while you know I like to do things backwards and different a lot.
That's why I love making cards, you can do what ever you want!! :)
The mirror inside was hard to photograph but there is a mirror piece of paper in the center. I added some pink and brown twine and the pink flower and gem center to keep with our pink theme this month.
This card is so fun, really makes me smile. I used the Simply Charmed cartridge on this one and the new haunted house embossing folder (new to me)
I cut everything out at 3 inches and glued it in place. I added black glitter glue to the bats in the sky and on the bat in the tree to accent his wings. There is yellow glitter glue on the moon as well.
Another easel card, I have to get at least one in on my posts :)
I've had the fence punch for quite a while, never used it. So I was looking around trying to figure out what I'd use to hold the card open and haha! I thought, it's perfect!!
So I cut a 4 1/4 inch piece of black from the fence punch, scored the rails just above the base line and glued only that ticker piece down. So when the card is opened you can stand the fence up and hold it open.
Makes me giggle, I love it!
There is a tiny orange gem for the door knob and the pink on this card is the gems on the bat's cheeks.
