While I am waiting for the warmth to set in around here, I've chosen some fresh & light colors and super fun patterns from the Record It! "Just Splendid" collection. I seriously love how whimsical and fun everything is, and I've paired it with some embellishments & stickers from the Now & Then collections!!
While both cards are fairly simple in nature, I chose to pop a lot of the elements up off the base of the card using foam adhesive. I love the added dimension that this gave to each of the card. To make the cards feel cohesive, I diecut a bracketed label from woodgrain paper, cut it in half and used it on both cards.
For the birthday card, I focused on some of the journaling cards. I trimmed down the 4x6 card to fit a standard A2 card, then trimmed the 3x4 card so it wouldn't cover the "say cheese" sentiment. After layering them to the card front (with the bracketed label half)....I found matching buttons for the balloons, thread them with twine & adhered them to the 3x4 journal card. After that I just added some stickers, a bow & wood dot to complete it!!
Supplies:Record It!-Just Splendid: 6x6 paper pad, cardstock journaling cards & wod dots, Now and Then-Mildred: alpha/word stickers & sticky notes, Now and Then-Dorothy:accent stickers.
For the second card, I focused on the 6x6 paper, and layered strips of it to the bottom & the right side of the woodgrain A2 card base. I cut out the speech bubbles from a 3x4 journal card, and added them to the top with foam adhesive. After that I added the other woodgrain bracket label to it, then accented with stickers. I added the sticky note to the bottom, then accented with wood dots to finish!!
