Hello! My name is Becky Williams and I am thrilled to get to guest design for Pebbles this month.
As guest designers, we were given free rein to create anything with any collection from the past six months, so I decided to create a set of cards using just a few supplies:
-patterned paper from Jen Hadfield’s Along the Way collection (Blooms, Sweet Sentiments, Home, For My Friend, Window Box)
-white 8 1/2″ x 11″ cardstock cut to 4 1/4″ x 11″ and folded in half
-black and Kraft cardstock to mount card sentiments and tags, for flowers
-foam adhesive and adhesive tape runner
-scallop edge punch
-narrow gold washi tape
For this first card, I adhered two different pieces of patterned paper to the card base and then used the tear strip from one of the sheets across the seam. I used the reverse side of one of the tags, wrapped it with twine, added the gold tape, staples and brad and then added a card sentiment to the front using foam adhesive. I adhered the tag to the card with foam adhesive.
For this second card, I cut strips of varying sizes the width of the card and, after tearing along one edge, layered them to create the background of the card.
I created the tag by trimming down another tag, mounting it on kraft cardstock. I cut the cute girl and “just for you” sentiment from another tag and layered them as shown, finishing off the tag with some twine.
For this quick and easy card, all I did was layer a piece of patterned paper on white cardstock, leaving about a half inch on the edge, then used my scallop border punch on the cardstock, layering that over the cute pink polka dot paper.
Once again I layered my tag on a piece of cardstock allowing the tag to stand out from the card.
For this final card I chose a black and white color scheme accented by the gold washi and some kraft-colored flowers.
I mounted the card sentiment on black cardstock and left some extra so that I could use my scallop border punch. I wrapped the tag with twine and adhered it to my card base with foam adhesive and then tucked some punched flowers under the edge.
I hope that from my projects for today you could see that you can create a set of beautiful cards with just a few supplies.
