Hi! Hope you are having a great weekend!
(PARA ESPAÑOL VER LETRAS EN ROJO)
I dedicated today to make some kits I needed to finish on time. I have a class to offer on April 26, but I know how busy I will be these next weeks and how many projects I have waiting for inspiration and TIME. The good news is that I already made them... so did the instructions and all for now. Sigh!!!
I then made some space to make a card for the Latina Crafter challenge. I really want to be able to support this company because it provides great products for us.... "latina" crafters. So, that's why you see this Spanish version in red. Remember you can always also use the translator in my blog and read every post in the language you prefer.
I used the sketch #34 to make this card. I used a vintage look with cream, pink and black colors. Used some vellum, ink, ribbon, sequins and paper flowers. For an original technique, I stamped the sentiment first in the pink cardstock, then in the cream circle, and positioned the circle right on the other sentiment to match. You can also do it directly in the two cardstocks at the same time but sometimes the stamping can be interrupted in the join lines, so this way you make sure you won't lose any part of the sentiment or image.
Here's the sketch for your reference.

And here's a full close up of the card.
Y aquí un acercamiento total de la tarjeta.
I wanted to also share a thought with you. I have some friends who do not like making cards. They prefer layouts, mini albums, or anything that has to do with photos. I just want to tell them they can enjoy making the cards and use them for other things but a card.
For example, cards can be great covers for mini albums. They can also be part of your journal pages and provide great journaling in layouts or other projects. You can use them to complement your mixed media projects, and as embellishments in your layouts. What about with photos in a shadow box? You can even frame them and combine with framed photos for your around the house projects.
This is a simple layout using the card I just showed you. I just quickly positioned the elements to take a photo and show you, but sure this can be improved LOL! Just an example!
So, next time you have a chance, make some cards with your friends... and don't send them to anybody... use them as journaling or as a key part of your next project! :)
Remember I will offer a class. We will make 5 cards for Mother's Day... or remember, you can use them for other things. Email me if you want information or visit me on facebook (Scrapper Myra).
Have a great weekend!
