Hello friends!! Hope you have had a wonderful week! I'm so excited because today the CardMaker blog team is participating in a blog hop with the Webster's Pages design team!1 How fun is that??? We will be showcasing the new Webster's Pages Family Traditions collection. This collection is absolutely YUMM-O!!! If you got here from the blog of Webster's Pages design team member Emeline Seet then you are on the right track. If not, you will want to head over to the CardMaker blog and start there.
As I indicated above the Family Traditions line is absolutely gorgeous and I just couldn't make one card... so I made two!! The first card is a fairly simple one based on the sketch from Seize the Sketch. The minute I saw the sheet of red gingham paper that is part of the collection I knew I had to make something with it. I cut a 3 3/4 x 5" piece and matted it with white cardstock. I cut one of the phrase strips from the "Family Time" sheet and then topped it with the yellow polka dotted paper from the "Fall Leaves" sheet that had been die cut with a My Favorite Things Fishtail Flag Stax die. I adhered these pieces to the gingham piece and then added the little resin leaf from the Family Traditions Perfect Accents collection. As a final detail I added one of the little apple clips from the Family Traditions line and then mounted everything on a bright green card base. Squeee!! How cute is that little apple clip??? LOVE!!!
My second card uses the gorgeous resin frame and cameo that is also contained in the Family Traditions Perfect Accent pack. I cut a piece of white cardstock and distressed the edges a bit. A piece was trimmed from the Family Time sheet and the edges distressed, as well. A strip of paper was trimmed from the "Thankful" sheet, cut down, one side punched with a spiral binder punch and then the edges distressed. I adhered that strip to the white cardstock piece and then layered the woodgrain piece on top. A fishtail banner was die cut from the "Fall Leaves" sheet, the edges distressed and adhered. The word "happy" was trimmed from the "Harvest" sheet, the edges distressed and layered on top of the fishtail banner. Finally I adhered the frame and the cameo. My goodness... how gorgeous is that cameo??? LOVE!!! The entire piece was also mounted on a bright green cardstock base.
