Thanks so much for all your kind words and encouragement for my attempts at card making. You guys are the best !!
At the beginning of this year, I started exploring options for getting deeper into this hobby. I purchased some supplies from Stampin Up! and also for one month in March, I subscribed to the Simon Says Stamp card kit. My certificate course at UW took the front seat April onwards, so I discontinued the card kit subscription. But I simply fell in love with the idea of receiving awesome goodies every month and experimenting with them. So, I am planning to subscribe again from the next month :-D
Anyways, here is another card which I made, using only the supplies from the Simon Says Stamp (SSS) March 2015 card kit.
I used the following items from the kit:
- Authentique 6 x 6 CLASSIQUE BEAUTY Paper Pad
- Authentique CLASSIQUE BEAUTY 3 x 4 Journaling Cards and
- Simon Says Stamp Card Stock 100# SMOKE Gray
I also used Tombow liquid glue, paper scissors and a paper trimmer from We R Memory Keepers in addition to the items above.
To put together this card, I used the paper trimmer to cut the card stock vertically in half and create a standard sized top folding card.
I then used two of the journaling cards and layered them one on top of the other, slightly off centered from each other.
I used three patterned papers and cut some strips from them. I didn’t measure them for width really, just eyeballed to make them unequal widths. I them cut them into half and made a banner shape on one side.
I layered these banners and arranged them from the top right corner. I also slightly rolled the banner ends upwards to give them some dimension. Everywhere on this card I only used the liquid glue.
For a card dressed like this on the outside, I wanted the inside piece also to look fairly decorated. I used the back side of another journaling card which had ruled lines, and created another layered banners piece with the left over stripes.
I finished the front of the card with a couple gem stones from my stash.
Here’s a closer look at the finished product
