For this first card, I trimmed one of the journal squares, distressed it, and layered it over a strip of patterned paper. Some enamel dots and staples, and it was a quick and nice card!
My next card is perfect for a boy! I used another journal card, lined with stripe paper matted onto aqua paper, and stitched along the edges. Enamel dots, a sticker, and a foiled star complete it.
Here's a better look at the foiled star that I created using my PixScan mat and my Mini Minc.
I was inspired for card number three by photo corners. I created two different size triangles from square scrap pieces of the red Happy Birthday paper. A few stickers, a New Bradz, and some stitching were finishing touches!
I was inspired for this last card by my Heidi Swapp Memorydex dies that I just got on sale. I used one to cut a file folder out of the red Happy Birthday paper (love that paper!!) and used it as my base. A few more stickers, some more enamel dots, and stitching...et voila! I'm sending this one to my brother for his birthday!
That's it for me today. I hope you are inspired to create some cards - they don't have to be time-consuming to be pretty!
Chocolate and hugs,
