I’ve been pretty busy (working on a really fun card for this weekends post 🤗) so I decided to post a card I made a while back (2014 😳). This is a back to basics kind of card with a little technique thrown in. If you look close I highlighted different spots on the butterflies with different colours of glitter. I found a way to colour my clearish Dazzling Diamonds glitter to match what ever colour of ink I was using. There wasn’t as many fun colours back then and even now sometimes it’s hard to find that exact match
So I’ve been looking through my old cards and I came across this card that I made my husband 10 years ago. It was an anniversary card that I made for our 10th anniversary. But it’s kind of pretty and it could pass for a valentine card so I thought I would share today.
soooo, I’m still working on my Christmas cards for this year (talking a little longer but they are pretty crazy this year)so I grabbed another card form my box. I made this one a couple of years ago. It’s pretty elegant in perso, the photo doesn’t do it justice, and one of my easier cards so it would be easy to C.A.S.E. it’s hard t see in the photo but the embossed section has glitter in it so it has a little extra pizzazz.
So today I have a couple of cute Christmas cards. I had the really adorable patterned paper out from a previous project asd I wasn’t quite ready to put it away. These cards I made to show that you can just go with it, There was really very little measuring as I was cutting out sections of the patterned paper that I liked and then just cutting out a mat roughly 1/4′ bigger. I also challenged myself to stick to 4 colours of cardstock to work with, I did cheat a little on that one as I also used Vanilla cardstock on the inside of 2 of them.

it’s been a bit since I’ve posted a K.I.S.S. (Keep It Simple Stupid) card. To my new followers I use the turn as a reminder to myself that not every card I make has to be a 6 hour multi layer super pop-up card, it’s ok to take a step back and make something in a half an hour and call it good. The patterned paper that I used for this card is some of my favourite, I just love the colour combo so it was easy for me to pull this one together.
