Each of our monthly kits and add-ons come with versatile tags, die cuts and embellishments to help you document your memories, or make someone else’s day! Today, design team member Daniela is with us to share two greeting cards that she created to do just that! Let’s take a look at her lovely creations!
Hi, friends! It’s Daniela here, and I’m sharing two new cards that can brighten the day in everyday life with you today, created using the May kit and extras. Especially in these hard times, we can’t do this often enough. I love giving little gifts to friends and colleagues without a special occasion. Who doesn’t have to smile when there’s a little surprise in the mail or on the working desk? Here are my cards that are meant to spend a little ray of light to two nice people:
Supplies: May 2020 Kit, Icon Chipboard Stickers, Puffy Heart Stickers, Hello Sunshine Wood Veneer, Acrylic Stars, Flourish 6 x 8.5 inch Paper Stack, Love Is 6 x 8.5 inch Paper Stack, Currently Icon Stamp
I used the same color scheme for both of my cards: a warm orange, yellow, purple and a tiny touch of pink. I really like the warm feeling these colors convey. For the first card, I cut apart one card from the May 2020 Kit because I felt that the phrase “You’re the Best“ made a great sentiment! You can use it as a thank you card or just to tell someone how much you care. I layered several papers and placed the die-cut striped tag on top of it. Then I added the sentiment strips on top.
The mixture of embellishments add lots of different textures, creating a playful style. The Acrylic Star is something special on a card and the Puffy Heart Stickers compliment the sentiment perfectly. The bakers twine is a nice extra and also adds another texture!
The biggest element on my second card is the Hello Sunshine Wood Veneer, and this card also comes along with lots of different layers! To add extra texture, I placed thread under the stamped sentiment. The ripped edges of the woodgrain paper is just a little detail, but also adds texture and adds up to the playful style. I think this card is perfect to cheer someone up or just to let a dear friend know that you’re thinking of him or her.
I already know who I’m giving these cards to! I hope you like how I used the May kit and extras, and maybe you even feel inspired to create some cards, too! When you do, don’t forget to share your work on social media using the hashstag #ellesstudio or in our Elle’s Studio Facebook Group!
Keep up the good vibes and stay safe!
