Dear Friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.
I John 4 : 11
I thought I’d share some cards I’ve made using files from two of my favorite Online Friends! I am currently on the Design Team for Cooking with Cricut / PaperCrafting World and I love the Cutting and Digital Files that Melin makes. I also have really appreciated the Digital Files that Emily makes available at Sweetly Scrapped. I decided to use some of each of their files this week and make several variations of them, showing their versatility.
For this first group, I used the ‘Decorative Plate Label 1’ cutting file from CWC/PCW – the actual file and also the ‘negative’ left when the file was cut. Remember? - I've said I love to re-purpose and re-use - Just hate to throw away 'good pieces' of paper! ;-] I added a digital file of small decorative ‘Plain Labels’ from SS to which I added the sentiments in Photoshop Elements 10 and then cut them out. I added gems and tiny flowers from Recollections. I have made many others similar to these in various color families and patterns and in sets of four.
For this next group, I used a digital file, ‘Eau de Toilette,’ from SS with a bit of French flair for some ‘general’ cards for friends and family. The first is the original color she offered - 6 to a page. I used cream parchment cardstock on which I stamped an all-over leafy design in Copper ink. This card folds in from the bottom and top and then the sides, making it the perfect ‘pocket’ in which to place a letter, a photo, a candy bar or any other small gift!
I ‘tweaked’ the other two to make the color of the digital file coordinate with the colors of the cards. The first of these two cards was a peach/green/yellow stripe. I punched around two edges so that the peach inside color showed and mounted the digi file onto peach cardstock – then mounted it onto the card.
The last of this group was made on light green parchment cardstock, so I tinted the digital file light green. I stamped a flourish pattern on the front of the card in black and mounted the digital picture on black. I added some Recollections gems. The style of this card allows it to stand and be an ‘easel card.’ There’s plenty of room for a sentiment inside – and/or a generous poem, verse or note.
I encourage you to visit the websites of my two Online Friends whose files I used for these cards! Both of these lovely women have amazing gifts that they share with all of us –
