Today’s post is truly card making/paper crafting at its finest. I’d like to thank Richele Christensen, author of the California Art Girl Blog, for sharing her talent with us today.
Just by folding your card stock in half and avoiding the cut rules on one side, you can create fun shaped cards.
This is were the fun begins. Cut pieces to create the jeans, hands, and head. Kinda like paper dolls. 😉 Using a Sanding Grip, sand the pieces and then ink with Vintage Photo Distress Ink on an Ink Blending Tool. Adhere the pieces to the base.
Sand the edges of the umbrella, hat, and coat then ink with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. Pop dot these pieces to the man.
I love this ticket because you can personalize the date for any occasion. How perfect for a birthday card. For more photos and details on this project, visit the Sizzix blog here.
The inside of the pocket tag card is perfect for a personal message and their favorite gift card. Who wouldn’t feel the love when receiving this unique heartfelt card?
My hope for you is to be fearless when it comes to your creativity, to try new things and most import to have fun!
Thanks so much for stopping by and Have A Magical Holiday Season.
