Today is my day to post for ScrapTownLady's blog, and I have a couple of cards to share. As today is Independence Day in the U.S.A., it felt right to use more of the beautiful red, white, and blue papers found in the ScrapTownLady Store. This card is sort of a 'half' easel card.
To make this card, simply create your card - this is an A2 card, but any size works. Score your card front at the halfway point, and fold downwards. Ta Da!
|This photo is looking down on the card, so that you can see the "Pride" sticker that holds the easel in place.|
|Here you can see that the entire top half is blank for your own personal message.|
The next card was fun. I've so badly wanted to create with some of the Graphic 45 papers that Cheryl sent me, but couldn't choose which piece to use....so I used nearly all of them!
Hexagon dies are not something I own, so I dug around, and found this old plastic template. As it has M's on it, it probably belonged to our daughter, when she was in grade school! Guess it pays to be a hoarder (grin).
The next step was to cut the hexagons out, distress with some Pine Needles Ink on a sponge dauber, and make a fun layout with them. Last, a scrap of ribbon for each fussy cut lady, a few pearls, and a stamped sentiment completed this quick and easy creation!
Hope that you've all had a great week, and have a wonderful, safe day today!
