Happy World Card Making Day everyone! I am excited to share today's blog post, showing you how you can design 1 card and then create 5 different card ideas using your layout!
Last week I created a YouTube video showing you how to make this card (click here to see my video):
1. Original Design
It is a very pretty card and I received a lot of nice complements on it. But it just seemed very simple to me. I had my monthly Sunday Crafternoon coming up and decided to all a couple of layers to the above design so my class attendees would have a bit more sophistication:
Did you see how I changed up in the Merry Christmas 'sign'? And I also decided to use Cherry Cobbler to stamp the tree - just to be a bit different.
Bette, who attended my class changed things up a bit more. She added a heart at the top of the tree, instead of a star. And she used my Cherry Cobbler marker around the sign to make it stand out more.
Sally, another class attendee, was all ready to adhere the plaid designer paper to her card front and when she turned it over, she LOVED the design on the back of the paper more. She chose not to use the Old Olive layer underneath and changed up the Merry Christmas phrase to look more like a tree stand.
One of my attendees fell sick the day of the class so I offered to make his card for him. I loved Sally's idea but decided to use the Old Olive layers since they had already been cut to use. And, I tried a different Merry Christmas sign color and way to post it.
So here you have one design and five different ways to make Christmas cards using three colors, one sheet of 12x12 Under the Mistletoe designer paper and two stamp sets: Lovely as a Tree and Better Together.
How easy is that!
