World Card Making Day 2011

 When I first heard a few years ago, that there was a day set aside for card making, I couldn't believe it! A day just for all of us who enjoy playing with paper and other supplies to create cards.
 I pulled out my supplies to create a card just for the day.  The card base is cut with my Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge. This is the cartridge that has a number of card base choices and this one also cuts out a window in the front. 
 The label shape with the leaf sprig is designed to fit inside of the hole that the cartridge cuts. I placed a piece of vellum behind the opening for a really  neat look.  I cut the label piece out three times. Once in the woodgrain pattern, once in a thin chipboard to help the leaf sprig stronger and again in the green pattern for the leaves.  Then I layered these together.  The little round tag is a die cut from PaperTrey, Inc.
 Another card that I want to share today is this one using lots of Bella Blvd. papers and some of their matching alphabet stickers. 
 I sanded the letters a little bit.  I like that the sanding makes them a little distressed.
 And the last one, using "text" prints as the accents. I did emboss the tan cardstock that is the card base and the black lacey piece is cut with my Cricut.
The label piece is actually Tim Holtz tape. I just filled a piece of white cardstock with strips of the tape and then cut this out with a Spellbinder Nestabilities.  It is also spritzed with some spray colors.  The flower is actually two layers of flowers that I cut from a piece of BasicGrey patterned paper. 
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
