I'm back today with a couple more cards that I created as the June guest designer for Jillibean Soup's Card Kitchen Club. their blog.
For this card I wanted to showcase all of my favorite prints from the collection so I chose a diagonal design and cut my papers into strips, sewing the edges of some of them with my sewing machine.
For my bow I used the wide organza ribbon in the kit, folding in half and then doubling it for the band that wrapped around the card (to reduce the opacity). I made the actual bow separately, folding the ribbon back and forth and then gathering it in the center with a little needle and thread. I then folded the last of my ribbon twice and knotted it around the center of my bow, hiding my knot in back. When I was done, I just used some strong adhesive to adhere my bow to the other band.
For this card I lined up the office tags to form the base of my design. I removed the twine that they came with and tied them with some baker's twine from the kit. After adhering them to a piece of sunny yellow chevron paper I cut the word "happy" from the Bite Sized Bits paper and finished my design by embellishing with stars from the Pea Pods diecuts and some pearls from the kit.
Totally easy peasy, yet I think still fun and happy. Check back tomorrow for a fun layout I created using Doodlebug's SEQUINS! ;)
