The holidays are in full swing (I'm sitting here with a cup of candy cane cocoa as I type this), and you might find yourself in need of additional cards! So while these cards do have a lot of layers to them, they are really simple to put together. My Mind's Eye makes it easy with all the amazing stickers & accents that they create for each collection. With everything ready made, all I had to do was grab & start layering them on the card fronts.
The first card with the big (but fabulous!!) bow on it is the only one that can't easily slide into an envelope to be sent. But it would look beautiful atop a gift package, basket or bag...don't you think? The other three cards do have some dimension added to them, but will still fit into an envelope with ease (I checked!).
I started by cutting four A2 sized cards, 2 portrait & 2 landscape, from black cardstock. Then each card got a background paper cut slightly smaller, 2 in red & 2 in green.
After that I used patterned paper scraps, stickers & embellishments to decorate the front of each card. I actually cut out the collection name graphic from the gift label stickers for the jingle bell card! I kept looking at my stickers, and it just fit perfectly!
I hope that you've enjoyed my card set for stickers week on the MME blog!! Feel free to recreate them for your last minute holiday card needs!
Hello! It’s Valerie here continuing on with sticker week. My Mind’s Eye always releases such a great variety of stickers with each collection. I love incorporating the fun phrases into my layouts. Today I’m sharing a simple, no fuss layout featuring a family photo from our summer trip to Disney World and a phrase that fits in perfectly with the location.
SUPPLIES-Jubilee Mint Julep “Journey” Adventure paper. Market Street Nob Hill label stickers and Market Street Ashbury Heights chipboard elements. Other: Bazzill Basics kraft paper and vintage typewriter.
I went back a couple releases and picked up the Market Street Nob Hill label stickers. The “once upon a time” speech bubbles caught my attention and I thought they’d be perfect for one of our Disney photos. I paired it with a typographic patterned paper from one of the most recent releases—Jubilee Mint Julep. I’ve been using my own handwriting for most of my journaling lately, but decided to dust off my typewriter and use it for some journaling strips on this layout.
And a cute chipboard camera from Market Street Ashbury Heights is the perfect finishing touch. It was fun to sort through vacation photos from hot sunny Florida and think warm thoughts for a bit since it’s definitely far from warm back here at home lately.
Welcome to a very fun week on the blog...Sticker Week!
