I hadn’t had a chance to enter the Unity Blog Hop Challenge in a while because the day of the blog hop was changed, but this week it happened on a different day and I decided to enter my cards since I made two cards for a couple of friends.
I’m taking a Craftsy class called “Lovely Layered Cards From Top to Bottom” taught by Sharri Carroll and these are the cards I made for the homework.
One of the segments was called “Layering With Mixed Media.” I used corrugated cardboard for the top of the card then added crackle paste. I also cut out a couple of hearts and the top and bottom of the cardboard of with my dies.
I used Authentique 6×6 double sided designer paper pad for the second layer where hearts were laid, and the bottom layer.
For the embellishments I used a Prima flower and a rolled flower I made myself plus the “Love You” brad.
I finished it off by adding glitter to the crackle paste as well as the flowers.
The ribbon is from my stash.
This second card is a Sympathy Card I created for a dear friend who lost her mom – she was only 58 years old – so young!!
This segment was called “Distressed Collaged Background”
I used the same paper pad for the top of the card, collaged the front with torn designer paper and tissue paper with mat medium to soften some of the dark color of the designer paper. I also used a stencil and Flexible Modeling Paste on the bottom right hand side and colored it with distress inks. I then dded a few butterflies punched out in three different sizes from the same paper. Died my own ribbon with distress inks, and added the black Prima flower. The sentiment I used was from Unity Stamps also.
Thanks for coming by and if you wish, follow my blog!
