Hello everyone, it's me Sandra and I'm beyond excited to share my very first post here on the Crate Paper blog. I created four cards I would like to show you today. You are going to meet a cool cat with pink glasses, some sweet and lovely balloons, a cute mermaid surrounded by some fun brush lettering, and a happy butterfly.
I created the first card with my sister's cat in mind. Since it's a really cool and special cat, I thought it would be nice to really show the coolness by using the pink glasses chipboard sticker from Maggie Holmes' Gather collection in combination with a fancy title and one of the cat stickers from the Cute Girl collection. I added some patterned paper, a frame sticker and some sequins. I think the card turned out really nice and I'm sure my sister will like it.
The special thing about the second card is its title. The strings that hold the two balloons form a v-shape and are a perfect match for the 'v' in the word love. I used patterned paper as a base, one paper with a neutral grey and one with a yellow pattern to match the color of the balloon on the left side. I also used my sewing machine for some stitched details and added a final touch with a row of sequins.
The third card was made for a special and wonderful mermaid who is in need of some cheering these days. I used some heavyweight white paper and two brush pens to letter a motivational title. And I thought that the crown sticker would be a nice addition to the mermaid to show the person how special she really is, because it's the little details that just say more than words ever can.
For the fourth card, I cut a 4x6 piece from the Sunset paper and glued a cut-out from the Glitter on acetate transparency sheet on top of the paper. The gold dots in combination with the gold bow add some glamorous shine to the card. Then I added a doily, a golden frame and one of the beautiful fringe butterflies from the Chasing Dreams collection. In a final step, I added a 'hello' chipboard sticker and a golden heart. The design of the fourth card is similar to the first card 'check meowt'.
I'm hoping that my cards inspire you to create something for the dear and special people around you or just for yourself. Maybe you want to try some brush lettering yourself on your next project and just add the right amount of Crate Paper products to show how much you care about your loved ones or about yourself. Have a great day, Sandra.
