I love making cards! It's my favorite thing to create so of course, that's what I started with this week when I had some time to craft. I pulled out the Memorabilia collection and got to work! :) First I made a collage style hello card:
Collage style cards are my favorite! I love adding the layers and textures one at a time, building up into the look I'm going for. With this card, I started with a pale blue card base. Next, I cut a panel of the Document patterned paper and splattered it with mint colored mist. Once it was dry, I stamped the hot air balloon from the Memorabilia stamp set. Then I added my doily, folded in half and layered some Memorabilia washi tape over the seam. I wanted to add some banners next- I chose two, one from the Memorabilia sticker sheet and one from the chipboard elements. I added the twine next, tying it in a bow. My last layer was the cute sentiment from the Memorabilia sticker sheet. I added it to the card front with dimensional adhesive and embellished it with a couple of epoxy dots. I finished by adding the panel to my card base with dimensional foam adhesive.
Aren't the layers fun? :) After I finished my collage style card, I wanted to do something simple. The banners on the Recorded patterned paper inspired this one:
I cut a panel out of the Recorded patterned paper out so that the banners would run along the top of my card. I stamped the sentiment in the lower right hand corner using Versamark ink and then embossed it with white embossing powder. I flicked the panel with white mist and let it dry. Once it was dry, I lightly sponged white ink around the edges of the card front. Lastly, I embellished with the Memorabilia epoxy dots.
It's an easy to make card with a big impact I think!
After two cards, I was ready to create something a little different. I grabbed a clear pillow box I had in my stash to decorate- it's the perfect size for a gift card or a small treat:
I started this project with some found items. I tore a page out of an old book and wrapped it around the center of the pillow box. Next, I wrapped it with some dark gray yarn. I cut a heart out of the Quatrefoil patterned paper and added it to the center using dimensional adhesive. The sentiment banner came next- it's from the Memorabilia die-cut sheet. Lastly, I embellished it with some of the pretty Memorabilia sequins. I just love them!
I really enjoyed creating these projects! The smaller canvas of cards and goodie boxes is perfect- not too much space to fill and so fun to give away!
