Thinking of You Cards

I had a few cards that I needed to make last weekend. I love making cards, such an easy way to be creative. It doesn't take a lot of time or supplies but I think it really adds a touching of caring.


This came together really quickly-cardstock as a base, a little patterned paper, some more cardstock with a stamped sentiment and a Prima flower. For the sentiment, I stamped it in purple to match the card base and then used my scallop edge punch to add some dimension. I added the little pearl embellie to the center of the Prima to dress it up a little and distressed the whole think with purple ink to finish it off.
I was really happy with how this one turned out.
Supplies: Bazzill cardstock, Basic Grey patterned paper, CTMH "Say It With Style" stamp set, CTMH purple ink, Prima flower, CTMH pearl

This next one is made up entirely of CTMH products. This one also came together super fast.

For this I used some scraps from a My Reflections Level 2 CTMH paper pack, Caprice. I also had some leftover Stickease from the same line. (This line is retired but if you are a digital scrapbooker you can use it with the Studio J software-I'll talk more about that in a future post!)
I literally just cut a piece of patterned paper to about 3.5", inked the edges, used two stickease stickers and added a rub-on sentiment to one of the stickers. That's a super easy way to make your own embellishment to match your design. I distressed the whole thing using some chocolate ink. Done and done. I love how versatile the CTMH paper packs are, I've gotten so many projects out of that paper pack.
Supplies: Cardstock, patterned paper, stickers, ink-all CTMH (Caprice)

Later this week, I'll share some projects form my current favorite CTMH line-Animal Cookies. See you then!
