A Card A Day – week one

Part TWO!

Two Twofers. I really really love the first pair.

Thursday and Friday:

I have so many scraps, most of my cards will tend to be made from patterned paper and cardstock so I can use it up! The first one is a really common design with paper strips with the addition of a large embossing folder:

I think this looks fab! Because the cardfront was separate the inside of the card is pristine. I went to the scrap bin for a colour match and used a printable sentiment that I made ages ago, but maybe didn’t share cause I sure can’t find them!

I left the debris on my desk and the next day I decided to try another version of the same technique. This time I built the strips on the card front directly and used a different embossing folder. I also played about with the sentiment strips I had cut before making my extended plates for the Sidekick.

In the end I decided the black was bolder and I prefered it – this is def. a trick I will use again! I love the text over the strips.

Saturday and Sunday:

This time I went to a small paper pad that had some scraps tucked inside and some embossing tools I unearthed:

The final card:

Again, with the scraps on my desk I made this one:

I used a couple of elements from a cut-apart sheet that had bits cut from it already as well as the scraps from the previous day.

Might do just six cards a week so I don’t have to make a card before I can share the Sunday post!
