Happy summer, everyone! It's Robyn with you today to share my latest My Little Shoebox projects.
First off, I created this "thank you" card using a simple square design, with some layered pennant pieces, a journaling spot and some stickers.
Quick tip: I like to use foam tape to raise certain elements of my cards just a bit. You'll see another example of that on this next card...
After I had arranged my patterned paper sections, I cut a piece of the border sticker and used foam tape to create the raised border across the card.
For this next card, I was inspired by the bright colors and graphic patterns in the collection to build a patchwork background.
This is a great design to help use up scraps of your favorite papers. I simply added a journaling spot with sentiment and a few flower stickers along the bottom. Then I topped it with some layered die-cut flowers.
I'm always in need of a fun way to present a gift card. The scalloped die-cut paper made the perfect base for this card. I simply trimmed off the sides to create a rectangle shape that I could score and fold, and I added some roll-up flowers for a finishing touch. A strand of crinkled seam binding secures it all together.
On the inside, I left plenty of space to attach the gift card and write a special note.
Finally, I decided to make a simple gift enclosure card -- 3" x 3" -- that I can either add to a gift bag or slip into a box.
Again, I used foam tape behind the sticker to add some dimension. I love the birdcages in this collection, so I went with the simple (and somewhat corny) sentiment of "Tweet!"
But what do you expect from a girl named after a bird?
Thanks for popping by!
