I had a busy Wednesday Night this week. The project was a Double Slider Birthday Invitation. I’m using these to send out for my son’s birthday party in March. I used Wild Wasabi for the green, Crushed Curry dry embossed with bricks for the […]
Apparently I was on a roll tonight. I made this great, simple looking Congratulations card. I was trying to figure out what I could do for the angle lines, that wasn’t ribbon. Then I remembered I got a stamp in my Paper Pumpkin that was a great set of arrows. Love the polymer. I still need to work on getting a closer aim on the lineup, but for a quick congrats card not too shabby.
I think for the heck of it I’ll enter it over at Freshly Made Sketches. I tried one that had different colors for the lines, but I just couldn’t get into it. The color changes seemed way to abrupt. I probably could have used stamping off to get a gradation of the lines, but that actually wasn’t something I thought about until just now. At one point I thought maybe it was too plain, so I added some sequins to it randomly. It added some shiny, but really didn’t do anything for the overall card and well they looked tacked on. I’ll take a picture later so you can see what I mean. I guess simple is the best.
I like all the base ideas these sites give. Hope you have a great night and happy crafting!
With graduations right around the corner, we’re going to get a head start making some great cards for the occasion. I’m going to have one card holders and other variations soon for March 5th too.
Don’t forget you don’t have to make these specific ones, there a lot of different options to choose from. Just remember it will probably take a bit longer for me to get the supplies together for them.
January 25th is the Birthday Card Create-a-thon. Join us for a great day of Birthday Card making! We’ll be creating a great set of Birthday Cards this month! We’ll be making 5 each of 3 designs (15 total). I’ll provide the materials if you bring […]
This was a fun card. Skidding in to wish you a Happy Birthday! I was missing some inspiration until I looked over at the Freshly Made Sketch
that was going on. So I squealed my tires on over to the card corner and went at it. I usually pick the fire trucks, but I thought it should be the police delivering the news on this one.
