A day of creating...

Hello! I'm expecting a few friends over soon for a day of crafting so I'm going to keep this short but thought I'd show a card set I made recently...

I love to make multiple cards with the same layout but change the color. I am thinking of making sets similar to these as Christmas gifts.

To make this card:

-I started by stamping a different Hero Arts background on each card in the coordinating card color.

-I cut off a 1/2 inch strip from the bottom of the front of the card and glued it on top of the bottom of the inside of the card. I did this so when you open the card, you have some decoration on the inside.

-I embossed dots with my Cuttlebug on the white label die (from Sizzix) and stamped a Hero Arts Greeting in the center using black ink.

-I applied coordinating distress ink to the outside to make them pop using my distress ink blending tool.

-I added dimensional adhesive to the back of the label die and attached it to front.

-I strung three coordinating buttons with white string and attached them around the label.

-(Difficult to see in the picture) Finally, I sprayed the entire card with pearlized water to give it some shine.

That's all I got for now. Hope you had a great weekend! :)

Love the colors, layout,everything about these cards! How did you emboss the labels so that you had a flat space in the middle to stamp on?
