It's been a while! Hoping to catch up... or at least keep up going forward.
Here's our Shoebox cards for February!
This masculineish card was inspired by Stampin' Pretty. It was fun to make this card with glitter and bits of red glitter paper. The red heart is stamped on the black heart and the red heart in the greeting is colored in with a marker.
Anita's creation is a fun 4x4 with a gem to do a pop up to hold the greeting. The pastel colors makes this card so soft and sweet. A wonderful card for anyone!!
Here's the open card. Anita also colored the gem with alcohol markers! Love it!!
Beth's card is a shaker card!! We embossed the wooden paper and it embossed the paper and cut the paper at the same time. We added some brown ink to enhance the embossed images. She had also pre embossed the thicker sticker paper and taught us step by step how to do this process. We took the back sticky paper off and stuck it to the blue cardstock, then added the confetti and coffee beans, carefully as they stick to the top sticker, then took of the top sticker paper and aligned the sticker sheet. We did some trimming as well. Wow! What a fun Card!!
Julie's card was really fun to do... there were two parts, 3x6.75 and 5.5x6.75, scored at both scored at one inch and two inches, but they are reversed when you put them together. when the card is folded up, the pop up is hidden. Glue the left most fold of the smaller section the the left side of the big card. Then glue the right part of the greeting to the right folded part of the card! It's darling and makes me smile!
Melani's creation was a slide card! We used thick foam tape cut into strips... four pieces at the top and the bottom and on either side of the slide, giving plenty of room to slide. The big heart is cut in half and adhered to the edge of the gutter. cut the gutter (1/2 inch), about 1 inch from each end from the left.snip the ends (Right side can be rounded). Also cut a vertical slit at the left end for the slider to slip through. Make sure the message is readable and further to the right. add a smaller heart to the exposed part of the slider (3/4 of an inch by about 5... will need to be trimmed) close the slider and add the matching heart half to dimensional tape to the slider. add the paper to the front of the card. This was a fun card to make!! love the fun glitter hearts!!
Pam's lovely Asian inspired card with fun folds. We are pretty good at folding the corners! The Kimono is my favorite one so far! The kimono was slit to add the belt and so was the bottom of the kimono, to show off the under piece.
We missed a few of our regulars. Our prayers are with Roxxy at this time.
Come and play night will be Tuesday, February 18 and the next shoebox card night will be Tuesday March 3.
