Hello everyone! This is Suzanne and today I'd love to share some cards I made using the new (and gorgeous) mini letter, word, and phrase stickers from the Find Your Wings and Fly collection by Rhonna Farrer.
I love to paper craft, but one category I seem to make few of are cards. I am not a big cardmaker, although I love receiving a handmade one from someone special. It might be the smaller canvas, that makes it a bit more challenging for me to design a card.
Of course, one thing that is easy for me is obviously the sentiment. When making a card for someone you primarily know what the occasion is being called for. In my case, I try to keep it as simple as possible. I turn to stamps, pre made titles, and word stickers. In the Find Your Wings and Fly "Sky's the Limit" Alpha & Word Stickers ,you will find plenty of phrases to choose from.
I decided to highlight these mini words and phrase stickers a bit differently on my cards. I turned to vellum, and my sewing machine to create a fun overlay for the sentiments. I have been using vellum on my projects for a long time and especially love vellum on cards.
my sentiment to the card and then layered a strip of vellum on top of the word
stickers. Vellum is obviously transparent, so the sentiment is easily
read. For an added detail, i stitched along the sides and bottom of the
vellum strip. This adds a handmade feel to
the card, but also adheres the vellum in place.
I also added a touch of glitter...just because. The word stickers would also be great to use for journaling on scrapbook pages, and you could even mix them with your computer journaling for a unique and fun look!
Each pack comes with an amazing assortment of colors, and different phrases. It will carry you through many cards,projects, and scrapbook pages.
