LAYERS AND LAYERS AND A FEW MORE LAYERS! The very first item from the 2020-21 Annual catalog was the Tasteful Touches Bundle. Boy this set doesn't dissapoint! I paired it with the Stitched Nested Labels and the Envelopes Dies and magic happened.
Do you remember playing those games as a child may be with your parents where one would start with "Do you know how much I love you?" then you try to guess all the biggest things you can find. This card kind of reminds me of that. Spoiler alert... in case you hadn't already guessed the answer is "COOKIES". What is more perfect is that this card can be used for anyone, kids, men, ladies, that favorite loved one who's hand is always in the cookie jar. Thankfully we don't have a jar full of cookies in my house- I would eat them all the time. Since we are on the subject, comment below and tell me what you FAVORITE cookie is! Mine is always a toss up between chocolate chip walnut and oatmeal walnut. They are always soft cookies too, none of that hard crunchy type!
OOH fall, oooh Mint Macaron, ooooh this card- they all make me happy! It is silly but really there is not anything I don't love about now, except how fast it seems to go :(. Fancy folds are not really my thing but this one is not too far out of my comfort zone and it has a little trick to make the technique work. It was a challenge card so cross your fingers for me but even if it doesn't net me 1st place it is a winner in my book! The steps below will walk you thru how to make the card and the design is super easy to repeat on other holidays... think balloons for a birthday, cake for an anniversary, flowers for sympathy, and animals for kids.
Fall could be every day for me, it's my favorite season. From the warm days with cool nights, the smell of rusting leaves, apple everything and Halloween right around the corner... I love it all! Let's talk about this card celebrating everything fall and Cajun Craze is all the rage. Next add a layer of coordinating Plaid Tidings Designer Series paper. By the way, if this were a flannel I would totally wear it all season!
The stunning focus of this card is the newly released Brushed Metallic Cardstock from the August-Decemeber 2020 Mini Catalog. In fact it was the whole reason for the card. This month's challenge was to make cards featuring sample items from this catalog. What do you think? There is something about gold that always makes everything look more classy.
