July Featured Card Showcase
Our July card exchange "Winter Wonderland" was the perfect reprieve from the HOT, HOT summer days we have had this summer. And, in some cases, it has been a great way to get a jumpstart on holiday card making ideas!
Here are a few of the cards that were created for this card exchange -
This card, from Michelle features the Memory Box Fredward Bear die and matching stamp and a Cuttlebug embossing folder. Glitter and Liquid Pearls added a spendid touch to her "Beary Sweet" Card.
Glitter, did we mention glitter?! Kathleen's card is a mecca of glitter glam. She die cut the Cheery Lynn candles out of black vinyl, glittered them up, and then colored the glitter with her Copic markers. WOW!!! Bazzill Bling paper was just the perfect accent for her card presentation!
Another of the crafty card creations is this card from Marianne. There was definitely a "bling thing" going on with the "Winter Wonderland" card exchange ..... Marianne also used Bazzill Bling paper. She cut her card design with her Silhouette Cameo machine - love the die cut card edge, don't you?! Add some patterened paper, a stamped "Let it Snow" message and some Crystal Ice stickles and there you have it!
