Do y’all remember this card? The one that took for-EVER to adhere all the letters. I was thinking it about it this weekend and I was trying to figure out a better way to cut and adhere letters.
Perfectly Placed Cut Letters
My solution was to create little connecting points between the letters. After adhering the letters to the card, I could carefully cut away the connecting points. I’m not sure if it’s the best solution, but this is what I came up with. And it was a LOT quicker than how I did the letters before. :)
For today’s card, I really went back to basics and let the card sentiment really be the focus of the card. I love cards like this–typographic cards, almost. :)
Anyhow, I used the All Spice 6×6 pad from My Mind’s Eye and the Thank You stamp set from American Crafts. For the little itty bitty letter stickers, I used my new obsession: Prima letter stickers. These letter stickers are awesome! I bought a few different colors at the same time (always risky when you haven’t seen them in person), and I’m so glad I did! I picture myself using these stickers a lot for cards.
For this week’s Make a Card Monday video, I really wanted to use the Night Owl stamp set from My Cute Stamps. I bought this stamp set a while ago and every week I would take it out, look at it, and then use something else. I suppose I was waiting for an idea to strike. Does that happen to you guys? You know you love a stamp set, but it just takes you a bit to come up with an idea for it? I’m pretty sure everyone has experienced this, right? :)
Anyhow, I decided to punch a circle and have the little baby owl on the inside of the card. I love cards like that.
Where to buy Colorbox Fluid Chalk Ink
I mention in the video that I found a really great source for Colorbox Fluid Chalk Ink pads: Createforless.com. They have practically every color, and a bunch are on sale at the moment, to0. Oh, and Createforless has quilting and sewing supplies, too. I bought some iron-on vinyl to make some more cosmetic bags for Christmas gifts. Shh! If my mom or sisters are reading this… when you open your gifts this holiday season, act surprised, okay? :)
