Cards in Envy – Something New

Hello there!

Yay! I have great news to share with you that I am joining in the design team at Cards in Envy. I am looking forward to creating projects with these amazing ladies in the CIE DT.

The first the challenge I’ve created for CIE is Something New and it looks like a great sign to me. I’ve thought of several projects and I decided to create a card for a baby girl with a new stamp set and a new tag die.

Here is how I’ve created…

  1. Create an A2 card base from Bubblegum card stock.
  2. Die cut the scallop cross-stitch tag from white card stock. Embellish with ribbon and a piece of twine.
  3. Stamp, color and die cut the images.
  4. Stamp the sentiment with Versa Mark on black card stock and white embossed. Die cut the sentiment.
  5. Layer and adhere all the pieces mentioned above to card base with double sided tape and foam tape.
  6. Add some Nuvo Crystal drops around the tag.

Thank you for spending some time with me.

I hope you can head on over Cards in Envy blog to enter the challenge and to see more inspiration from the awesome Design Team.

Cross-stitch Tag

Today I am sharing my very first hand stitched tag. I spent morning hours to stitch and I do enjoy the stitching process. I wish I could have more time to stitch more tags for friends.

Here are the supplies I used

  1. MFT Cross-Stitch Tag Die-namics
  2. MFT Snow Globe Sentiments
  3. The cotton strings were bought at a local stationary store.
