I found Doodlebug's Essential Colorwheel collection to be an amazing assortment of colors and patterns. It's the perfect paper for creating all types of projects. Today I'm focusing on cards - this collection has ample supplies to make some awesome cards.
My first card is a tri-fold card. I cut my cardstock 5 1/2" x 11", then, using my Scor-Pal, I scored the cardstock at 2 3/4" and 8 3/4" to create the 2 folds. Using the reverse side of the Fancy Florals paper, I cut it to fit the 2 outer edges of the card. I then embossed these pieces with a Cuttlebug embossing folder before attaching them to the card. I then ran lavender twine around both pieces.
The sentiment was stamped in black ink on white cardstock, then adhered to the Fancy Florals paper before being adhered to the die cut label. This label was then adhered to the left side of the card only to allow the card to open.
I cut the Fancy Florals paper to fit the 3 interior sections of the card, then using Spelbinders Beaded Circles, I created the center pieces of the interior card. The sentiment was stamped in black ink.
My next card is an easel card which was cut 5 1/2" x 11". Using my Scor-Pal, I scored the cardstock at 5 1/2" to create the card fold, then scored again at 8 1/4" to create the "tent" feature that would create the easel effect. Evening Garden was cut to fit the card front and the reverse side was used across the center of the card. Using my Scor-pal, I created 2 score lines on this piece before adhering it to the card. I wrapped some twine around the card and die cut the frame for my sentiment.
I stamped another sentiment on the die cut frame which was attached to the bottom portion of the card with foam adhesives to allow the card to stand. I added some butterfly stickers to the card with foam adhesives so they would stand out.
I used a pre-made card for this project, cutting black cardstock to fit the front. I cut the Social Butterfly paper 4" x 5" and scored a 1/2" line around this block using my Scor-Pal.
I added a Flower Braddie to "happy" and then added the die cuts to the card front with foam adhesives.
This darling little purse doubles as a gift card holder and was so much fun to make. Cutting the Evening Garden paper 6" x 6", I scored at the 3" mark and folded the paper in half. I then diagonally cut the corners to create the shape.
Using Spellbinders Grand Nestabilities, I cut the flap and adhered it to the back of the purse with Scor-tape. I punched two holes and threaded ribbon through.
I then created a pocket for the gift card and stamped a sentiment on top.
I hope you enjoyed these projects and thanks for stopping by today.
