I wanted to share a card that I created for Crafty Card Gallery Design Team call that I'm trying out for. I absolutely love the soft colors of the Jack and Jill "Be Happy" Gleeful paper I used from the My Mind's Eye Quite Contrary collection.
For this card I cut a 6x6 square from the My Mind's Eye paper and then folded it in half. You now should have a 3x6 folded card. I cut various sizes of cardstock, then ink the edges with Versa Magic Dew Drop Aquatic Splash. Adhered them to the center of the card. Next I used Delta Rubber Stampede Santa stamp on a #6 tag which I did cut down a little...no exact measurements because I eyed-balled it***giggles*** I then inked all the edges of the tag and attached some lace at top. I used a soft pink chalk pastel to give Santa a little rosy color in his cheeks. I cut a banner from cardstock and cut the Merry Christmas from Me and My Big Ideas Fantastic Christmas 2 collection...another super fun paper to play with. When I glued down the tag I left a 1/8 of an inch of the tag hang off of the card for a different look.
I cut bits of velvet ric rac and lace glued to the card and last but not least I added baker's twine to the buttons and glued them down.
Ta-daaah!!! The card is finished. I love making this size card because I can get four cards out of a sheet of 12x12 scrapbook paper. I hope you will give this size card a try and let me know what you think :-)
Thanks for looking and enjoy creating!!!
