Another "Leftover" Card

You may remember the cards I made a couple of weeks ago. I added some frames made with different cartridges to cards cut from the Life is a Beach cartridge.

I was impatiently waiting for the new cartridges to be added to Design Studio so I tried creating some additions to customize the cards.

When I cut this frame (adapted from the Storybook cartridge), there was an interestingly shaped piece left from the center of the cut. So, I thought I'd use it on another card...

I added some ribbon on the left side, making a slit in the top fold of the card and adhering the ribbon to both sides of the card. Some flowers and a gem cover the overlap of the ribbon.

Then I used a cupcake stamp and sentiment using a purple ink.

The plain stamping seemed a bit too dull - so I added Stickles to the flowers, the cupcake and the "Y" and the "S" in the sentiment.

I think we have attended the last of the Graduation parties and the next week looks like it will be a bit calmer. Jen and I are scheduling a few more Design Studio classes and I have some designs that I have created for another project - to be shared soon. In the meanwhile, here is a sneak peek at one of the designs I am testing - can you guess which cartridge I used?

  1. Thank you for the 12 scallop chipboard cut. I have used the other a number of times and can use this one also. They make for nice quick gifts.
