Im keeping it short and sweet with this little card today!
I think incorporating your photos into your cards is a wonderful way to share those special pictures with friends and family. I know receiving a card with photos of my nieces and nephews on it would make my day!
I made this card with my son's grandparents in mind.
First, I cut the little polaroid frame with my Cricut. I also wrote the word "smile" on the frame using my Cricut and a Rushon Petite pen that I fit into the pen holder. I had to test it a few times before I got the pen in just the right spot, but it worked!
For the background, I used a stamp from Prima, added some Ground Espresso Distress Ink to it, and then misted it all over with a mini mister. I stamped the background first on a scrap paper, and then stamped again on the actual card. So the background is actually a second generation stamp image.
Then, I layered my embellishments on top! I fit the photo into the frame, and then layered different bits of scrap papers and a few stickers around it.
Its basically scrapbooking... but on a card!
So glad you found me! This blog is my little space where I can share bits about my life and my latest crafting projects (mostly handmade cards). My goal is to share, inspire, and to be a positive presence in the creative community.
