I decided to make my own background using some of the lovely Metalline First Frost (WG05R) embossing powder.  It is such a soft color and worked well for my background.  I used it for both my gift bag and matching card.

I also used the gorgeous Primary Pink Robin (WH26R) embossing powder for the bow on my gift bag.  This pink is absolutely stunning and was a perfect pop of color!!!

Hello Fall

Hello everyone!!  Today I am sharing a fun card using some Pink and Main products with you!!  We are finally getting some “fall” weather down here in Arizona so this card was perfect to celebrate!!!

I wanted a very soft look for this card so chose a simple white background paired with the Basket Cover Die also cut out in white.  I then cut out the Wreath Base Die in two different green colored cardstocks.  Using my alcohol markers and white gel pen to add some extra details to each leaf.  I then nestled in my little hedgehog creature from the Fall Friends stamp set into the bottom of the wreath.

 

Last I cut out the “hello” from the Wreath Base Die for my sentiment and added some flying leaves throughout the card.  I hope you have enjoyed this fun little fall card!!  Thanks for stopping by!!

 

Eskimo Kisses…

Hello everyone!! Today I am sharing a fun Pink and Main winter themed shaker card with you!!!  I had so much fun creating this card.  Shaker cards are one of my favorite types of cards to create!!  How about you??

For my card today, I used the Eskimo Kisses stamp and die set.  Pairing this set with the stitched rounded rectangle die and scalloped waves die.  I even pulled in some ocean waves paper from the Beach Babe paper pack to set my scene.

 

I wanted my card to have lots of dimension so placed one of my snowy scalloped hills and the igloo on the inside of the shaker card.  I then attached another layer of scalloped hills on top of the shaker window.  This was a perfect place to pop up my adorable little polar bear, eskimo and dog!!

One of my favorite things to do with a card is to continue the scene onto the inside.  It’s definitely not as elaborate as the outside but some fun for the recipient to open and find!!

Thank you so much for stopping by!!  I hope you enjoyed my card!!!

I decided to make a set of six cards and a matching box to keep them all in!! These little boxes are so easy to make!! Perfect for those larger scrap pieces you have left over!! You can find lots of tutorial on YouTube!!

The first two cards I decided to use black cardstock for the base of my card. I love being able to write my note in a white gel pen. I find small details like that make it extra fun for your recipient!! I made sure to use lots of foam tape on my stickers to give extra dimension!!

On the next two cards I cut apart some of the journaling cards to use as my embellishments. Again, using lots of foam tape for dimension. I’m a chunky crafter and feel a card can never have “too much” dimension!! Sometimes it requires extra postage…but that’s okay!!

The last two cards I used journaling cards as my main embellishment. These two cards are much simpler than the others but still just as cute!!
