Cards with Meghann and Daniela

Hello everyone! Meghann and Daniela are sharing two beautiful cards they created by mixing the Cienna collection with May’s Monthly Kit.

“For You” card by Meghann:

I love that with just a few scraps of paper and my May exclusive kit & cut file, I was able to create this pretty card for a friend’s birthday in so little time! For You closeup For You closeup 2

ES Supplies: May 2015 exclusive kitMay digital cut fileShine paper collection packCienna bits & piecesCienna Happiness stamp. Other: Ribbon & enamel dots.

Here’s how I put it together:

1) Cut a piece of white cardstock to 4-1/4″ x 11″. Fold in half. Cut a piece of the ‘So Bright’ paper to 4″ x 5-1/4″. Adhere to the front of the white, folded cardstock.

3) Cut the ‘for you’ tag from a piece of white cardstock and back it with the dark pink tag from the exclusive kit. Tie a pink ribbon at the top and keep the legs of the bow in place with glue dots. Cut a grey rectangle out of the ‘Say Cheese’ paper from the Shine collection and cut a slit at the bottom of the photo opening. Slide the ‘for you’ tag inside the slit at an angle and adhere to keep it in place. Tuck the purple flower from the exclusive kit behind the ‘for you’ tag and adhere to keep in place. Adhere the pink flower from the exclusive kit to the front of the grouping. Set aside.

4) Adhere the ‘important’ tab from the Cienna bits & pieces to the bottom left corner of the card. Stamp ‘I heart you’ onto the purple banner from the exclusive kit using the Cienna ‘Happiness’ stamp. Adhere to the top left corner of the card.

5) Using dimensional adhesive, adhere the frame/tag/flower grouping to the bottom left corner of the card. Embellish with enamel dots.


“Hello” card by Daniela:

I used one of the 4×6 cards from May kit as my background on the card base. I tucked in a strip of patterned paper at the bottom. I used three different stamp sets to create a little phrase, along with the stickers from Cienna collection. I added 3D foam adhesive to the flower for dimension. A little pop of yellow was added for some contrast with the twine and sequins.
