Here are three super easy, fuss free, handmade cards you could make, for friends, neighbours and family.
You Are Loved card: uses white card with one of the foiled designs from the In The Neighbourhood 6×6 Papers, overlaid by a smaller rectangle of the same range. Using foam tape, tracy stuck a large tag down over the top of the papers base, with a ribbon threaded through the hole and short. Floral Diecut Ephemera from In The Neighbourhood were then arranged on top, another tag from the Diecut Ephemera Sentiments, and the phrase “you are loved” with a heart from the Diecut Ephemera and a little Puffy Sticker to finish.
Bird Friends card: uses the same white card to start, with two layers of 6×6 papers cut into rectangles, one slightly smaller than the other. Tracy stuck these down with tacky glue, but you could use adhesive glue rollers, or PVA. The birds and bird houses are from the In The Neighbourhood Diecut Ephemera, the ticket is from the Diecut Ephemera Sentiments, and the flowers are from the Diecut Florals. These are stuck on using either foam tape or tacky glue to create layers and a simple 3D effect. You could also use some of the puffy motifs or some gems to add a bit of sparkle.
Fresh Air & Sunshine card: uses the same white card again as a base, with two layers of 6×6 papers cut into rectangles, one smaller than the other. The trees and bicycle are from the In The Neighbourhood Diecut Ephemera, the phrase and street sign are from the Diecut Ephemera Sentiments, and the flower is from the Diecut Florals. These are also stuck on using either foam tape or tacky glue, to give variations of height.
Does anyone else have “go to” projects they always make?! One of mine is definitely these embellished chip packets with a sequin shaker in the front.
I find them so easy to make and then it’s a familiar project to embellish and they always turn out so cute. And they are perfect to fill with little goodies for your penpals.
I used some of my favourite papers from the new In the Neighbourhood collection from @rosiesstudio and then created a sewn paper ruffle layered on top of some vellum as a little shelf to rest an embellishment cluster on.
I used a mix of stickers and diecuts to as well as a couple of little puffy stickers from the the collection to decorate them.
I can’t pick a favourite but I do love the little birds.
Smile, Hello, Thanks cards:
I love how these super simple cards I made turned out… I really wanted to try use some of the sweet puffy alphabet stickers.
I made a little layered strip of some torn paper and vellum and stitched this together. Then layered a few florals behind this and added a word sentiment to each strip and I think they turned out really lovely.
I can’t decide if Hello or Thanks is my favourite?! Which one is your favourite?
As soon as I saw the latest cutfile from @adriana_j_alvarez I just had to give it a go (I made these quite a while ago) and make these 3D Memorydex mailboxes.
I used so many gorgeous elements from the collection to decorate the front of each of them. I also made some super sweet dangle charms using the puffy stickers and chipboard elements to make some sweet little charms.
Now to decide what to put in them?!
