Picture Window

Tuesday, May 6, 2014

With Mother's Day only a few days away, I want to share with you  a pastel and gold glitter card I made this weekend. One of the best things I have learned since I have started making cards is to use coordinating papers - makes such a big impact! I used coordinating papers for this mom card and love how it turned out.
Handmade Pastel and Gold Mother's Day Card

I am submitting this card into the My Favorite Things weekly card challenge. Here is the challenge sketch:

Here is a closeup of the gold glitter stickers. They are Thickers letters and really standout on this card!

I liked the card layout so much from above, that I used it to create another card for a new-to-me challenge - the weekly Fusion Card Challenge.
Embossed Red Chevron Sequence Window Card

I used my new embossing template with chevrons and made a picture window (with recycled clear packaging from a set of coasters I am upcycling - look for that project soon!). I kind of just winged the picture window and would love to find a tutorial on how to make a real picture window.

Here is a close-up of the picture window and the sequins (which I got at a thrift store for 50 cents!).

I just want to thank everyone who has continued reading as my blog content has evolved. I know I share mostly handmade cards these days, so I appreciate everyone who has continued to read as the direction of my blog has changed somewhat.

I hope you all have a great day!
