We had a fabulous day out as a family yesterday, but I wanted to show you all the cards we had to celebrate! The ideas all came from other crafters from pinterest posts so I cannot claim the designs to be all my own work. I did make some changes and embellishments as once the creative juices were flowing I started adding bits here and there.
The first card is a simple punched card and layering card. I used the little leaves die for the Big Shot to make this card. Colours were the Certainly Celery from the subtles with Early expresso, but I also added in the Pool Party and Calypso Coral from the new In Colours for a light summery feel.
This card design I found on line with just the background cutout images (the leftover cuts from using the die), but I added the cut leaves images over the top as a shadow effect with the colours mixed round. As my die has had some use the foam cushioning has lots of indentations which left a patterning on the background images, but I think this looks quite like the natural detailing on a leaf.
The second card was from a boat design I have seen posted around. I used a bowl to draw round for the base and then just created triangle shapes - No punches or Big Shot required here! This is a simple design that just works as it uses the DSP papers, buttons and brads to embellish. I used the recently retired sale-a-bration papers for this one as I still have some to use up.
The best 'til last! The Pirate Boat. The Boat I made from the top note die for the big shot and I made 3-D with a little nip and tuck and a layer between the two top notes to make it stand off the paper . I also made the sea waves 3-D with a little Dimensionals to lift the layers. I loved playing around with this one for a fun card and it would be great for a young birthday boy card too!
