Everyday Occasions Greeting Cards

Standard

Hello there friends and crafty peeps!  I’m taking a little break from holiday crafting to create some greeting cards for everyday occasions.  Also I was recovering from going to the cold EMU game Saturday so I wanted to tuck myself into my shop and be a hermit for a bit.

I love this first card so much!  Those soft pinks and golds are just the perfect shabby chic combination.

This journal card was a bit on the larger size from what I would normally use so my layers had to be on top instead of underneath.  Sequins and bow and charms are the perfect finishing touch.

Happy Birthday Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

This card is so vibrant and cheerful! Those bold stripes really pack a punch.

I’ve got a garden of coordinating flowers here with die cut leaves and netting tucked in for fullness.

This card is a little more subdued but that gold foiling really gets my heart racing!

Who says you can’t put 2 bows on a card?  Not me that’s for sure. Especially when the match so well.

Flamingo Birthday Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

Though not my usual style…..I did manage to incorporate most of my fave layering techniques on this whimsical card.

The crisp white doily keeps this card from getting too busy and the chipboard sentiment is the perfect subtle finishing  element.

I’m using the singles in an unconventional way as scalloped borders for the patterned papers.

Flat black acrylic paint is a simple finish with a big impact when layered on the crisp white doily.

Pretty coordinating flowers to match the vintage image.

Last but not least a matching bow and metal moon charms.

These chippies need to be wiped down to prepare them for finishing.

Primer paste is added as a flat black paint layer.

I started with a discount store frame that I altered to add age and detail.

This sweet little witch was the inspiration for this project. I clipped her out of one of the journal cards and layered her over all those holiday details.

These fabby flowers are created with the gorgeous plaid from the 8 x 8 paper pad and arranged with other handmade by me blooms, glitter stars, and sparkly berry stems.

That fun bold striped pattern makes the perfect base for these embellishments.

The 8 x 8 paper pad has just the right scale to add to smaller projects. Those micro bats can be seen under the large glittery spider.

More flowers for this corner helps to balance the larger arrangement on the bottom. Last but not least is hand dyed cheesecloth, chunky chipboard numbers, and an altered flourish frame.
