A Simple Card


My sister is having surgery in a few days and I wanted to send her a card along with my best wishes. Since she’s a quilter, I thought that the Patchwork collection from Stamperia would be perfect.
 
Talk about quick and easy – this is actually a cut-apart adhered to a 4 x 5½ piece from another sheet. I then cut a bit of a border strip and tore one edge before gluing it to the bottom of the card.
A cut-out popped up with dimensional tape and a bit of a bow and I was done!

Enchanting


I’ve gone deep into my stash to scrap this “Enchanting” photo taken by my daughter-in-law, using several Graphic 45 collections: An Eerie Tale and Sun Kissed.


I started out by cutting an 8” square from the center of my bottom piece for later use. The next layer (one of two from the Sun Kissed collection) was trimmed to an 11” square before I punched the corners and distressed and inked the sides. I did a lot of layering of colors and patterns for my matting to draw out the colors of the photo.
The doily shapes on either side were created with an old Tim Holtz die. The vines cut from cardstock on my Cameo, then inked on both sides.
I dug even deeper to find one of my first stamp purchases: a set from Heartfelt Creations. After fussy cutting my pumpkins, I backed them with chipboard to make them “pop” and glued them in layers.



 To finish my cluster, I tucked some pretty flowers here and there.
