Different Card Shapes

Hi!

Are you as crazy about the making different sized cards as I am? I love making 3x6 cards and little note cards that I can stick in a gift bag. It's fun playing with a different sized 'canvas' and a great way to use up those little scraps that are always piling up!

The first card uses Stampin Up's sets Priceless and Define you Life. The flowers were stamped in craft ink and embossed with Irridescent Ice Embossing powder - love the sparkle that it has!

The last two cards are from Zoofari, another cute Stampin Up set. The images were stamped in Versafine Black Ink and embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. They are colored in with Copic markers and shaded with Pebbles Pearlescent Chalks. I used my Clear Sakura Glitter pen to Watercolor Sakura-Style.

They used up some K& Co. Nana's nursery paper scraps. The scraps determined the sizes of the cards, so I'm not really sure of the actual sizes.


Thanks for stopping by and have a great rest of your weekend!

These cards are just adorable and I love the color variety and sizes. I also like to try to use up my pile of scraps. I really like the way you created the grass under the Zoofari cat/birds...too often I leave mine floating around on white and I need to ground them. Thanks for sharing and have a great weekend!

All 3 of these cards are just fantastic Jessica! I am a bit partial to the kitty though, lol! LOVE it! Love the colors you used on it.

I used to shy away from making different size cards thinking I had no envelope to match! LOL! But now just do like you said, poke it down in the gift bag!
