Seems like spring comes and all we hear about are babies and weddings. Well, what a perfect opportunity to make some new, cute & beautiful cards for just such occasions! I had so much fun searching for just the right cards. I wanted cards that are pretty but not that hard to make. Because, let’s face it, who wants to spend all day making one card?
I’m quite pleased with my selections. See details below.
From A Little Wild Stamp Set and Little Loves Framelits comes Honey Bear. This card was cased from Liz Yuille at OldStablesCrafts.co.uk but I stepped it up just a little. She has a good video showing how to make this card. I just added the branch from Seasonal Layers Thinlits and hung the beehive from it instead of having it sit on the “ground”. Isn’t it adorable! Because the stamp set and coordinate die set is made to be a tag, folding over to make a more interesting inside was as easy as pie! I’m so happy that this set is NOT retiring.
Now for Weddings: This card is so easy and quick to make but is one of the most elegant ones I’ve ever made. Gold foil is cut using the Blooming’ Heart Thinlits. The base of white is embossed using the Softly Falling Hearts TIEF (retired, but “Softly Falling would look very good too and that one is still available) Heat Emboss the greeting and ta-da! Unfortunately, the thinlit set is retiring so get yours before they sell out https://www.stampinup.com/ECWeb/product/140621/bloomin-heart-thinlits-dies
