Here's a couple projects we made last night at Incredible Cards Club. We have two openings for this group, so let me know right away if you are free on the fourth Monday night of the month to come and make some fancy cards and some new friends!
This card uses the new Scallop Squares Duo die from the Holiday Mini as a mat behind the focal point. I layered it up with Very Vanilla, Always Artichoke, and River Rock. The card itself is Baja Breeze, with Elegant Soiree DSP that's been run through with the Square Lattice embossing folder for the Big Shot.
We stamped the image from Herb Expressions and colored it with River Rock and Baja Breeze markers, then added some Victoria lace and a little Vintage Trinkets button brad with a scrap of Very Vanilla taffeta ribbon for an accent.
This next card was intended as a little joke on my friend (and downline) Karri, as she hates pink! I try not to overdo the pink projects in IC Club for her sake. But after all that, Karri couldn't make club last night, so the joke was on me!
For this one, we embossing polka dots onto Very Vanilla, and then sponged them, mounted them on Basic Black and a Pretty in Pink card base. Torn Newsprint DSP was used as a mat over the Pretty in Pink wide grosgrain ribbon.
We used Pink Pirouette and Pretty in Pink markers to easily and quickly dye the Paper Daisy, then made a focal point with some Very Vanilla Hodgepodge Hardware and a hand-cut flower from Vintage Vogue. The flower was embellished with self-adhesive Basic Rhinestone and the new Smooch Accent Ink in Silver Fox.
