www.frosteddesigns.blogspot.com/2012/01/winter-wonderland-blog-hop-fabulous.html I was sitting at work today and had this idea pop in my head. I couldn't wait to get supper, errands and my workout done and get creating. I needed to send a few cards, so I decided to make a couple. Here is what I came up with:
I had a few left over inky file folders from a previous project. I used them as my background for each card. I stenciled a few hearts on the background of one. I then outlined each heart using my Permaball permanent pen. I used a Bic White Out Pen to write "Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart." I then cut a transparency to size and sewed it onto the background. I used a scrap of ledger paper to make the main focal heart pop. I added some circles with a stamp using StazOn Jet Black Ink, and colored them in on top of the transparency. I then sewed an inky tag on it. I cut out a heart and collaged some scrap pieces onto it. I then inked the heart and sewed it on the front. I stamped a greeting "Thinking of You", and glued it on the top with my favorite glue stick UHU. Voila! Greeting card!
On the second card I used another inky file folder as the background. I used a sink drainer mat I found at the dollar store as a stencil. I like the squares! I colored in random squares with my Pitt Pen onto the background. With my Bic White Out Pen I wrote random words: love, joy, peace, patience. I collaged random scrap papers, a paint chip and an inky tag. I sewed a transparency to the background. I then stamped a heart onto a piece of the inky file folder and sewed it onto the background. I added the greeting "Get Well Soon!"
Use what you have laying around your art studio or on your desk! Make a card to send to someone! It will make their day!
