I needed to make a few graduation cards for family & friends. I used the same template for both but changed the focal colour to match their school colours.
The card base was die cut using the Brick & Mortar 3D EF. After I embossed it, I lightly ran the Basic White craft ink pad over it to add a little dimension to the bricks. I die cut the numbers using the retired Large Number dies. I used Basic Gray & retired Galvanized Metallic paper for the numbers. The accents are also retired items; but they give a simple masculine bling that I was looking for.
I needed to create a New Home/Congrats card for a coworker who just bought her new home. I cased this one from Pinterest. The cute home was die cut from the retired Trimming the Town DSP using the Coming Home dies. I used the coordinating Trimming the Town DSP for the playful polka dot accent. The background was embossed using the Brick & Mortar 3D EF.
When it’s your mom’s birthday, you need to go over the top. This card is simply stunning in person! There are many layers to this card but overall it was fairly simple to make. I CASEd this from Pinterest but it was made with much love.
I embossed using the Brick & Mortar 3D EF (149643) on Whisper White. One of the Red Real layers was embossed using the Subtle 3D EF (151775). The stamp set is Forever Fern (152559) with the coordinating Forever Flourishing dies (152714). Speciality papers used are Heartwarming Hugs DSP (153492) & Silver Foil sheets (132178). 1 ½ Metallic Mesh Ribbon (153550) & Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplets (147801).
