I always have my Creative Memories goodies all packed and ready to go with me. Currently, I am spending my days in our RV out of town while my hubby works. I love the versatility of Creative Memories products, everything you need to make amazing layouts and cards is at your fingertips. I do have a well-stocked craft studio in my home but I don’t like hauling all my goodies with me. Everything I need to create can be found with Creative Memories products!
I don’t know about you, but I love to make and send cards to loved ones to hopefully brighten their day. I do not have a stash of cards here in the RV so I decided to make this set of four note cards just to have on hand.
I can not even put into words how much I adore the Mix & Match Paper Packs and the Mix & Match Embellishments! I used the Neutral and Cranberry Mix & Match Paper Packs along with the Forever Yours Embellishments, Neutral Mix & Match Embellishments, Cranberry Mix & Match Embellishments and the Evergreen Mix & Match Embellishments.
Card One, I used the pattern paper from the Cranberry Mix & Match Paper Pack. I trimmed the paper using the 12″ Straight Trimmer or you can use the Personal Trimmer to 4″ x 5″. I then cut the 4″ side down approximately 1 1/2″. Using the Tape Runner, I adhered to the card leaving a border all around. Next, I turned the paper over and adhered the opposite side to the bottom half of the card base. I like to leave a small space between the papers, the white space breaks up the space. For the flower embellishment, I used the largest flower and the white pearl from the Forever Yours Embellishment pack, the medium striped flower from the Cranberry Mix & Match Embellishment Pack and the small grey flower from the Neutral Mix & Match Embellishment Pack. The banner is made from a scrap from the Mix & Match Neutral Paper Pack.
Cards two and three, I used the same measurements as card one but used the Neutral Mix & Match Paper Pack. The flower on card three, I used a flower from the Evergreen Mix & Match Embellishment pack to make a couple of leaves for the larger flower as shown below.
Each flower embellishment I made, I “fluffed” them up a bit to give them more dimension. All flower embellishments were adhered using foam squares. The banners were all made with scrap paper either from the paper packs or cardstock. I used the multi purpose tool to curl up the ends of the banner. I love the added addition of the jewels to complete the look of the flowers.
The possibilities are endless with all the Mix & Match colours we have! What will you create?
Remember creativity is contagious…pass it on!
