Believe In Your Dreams card by Patty Folchert

Summer is a great time to encourage someone to follow their dreams. Here is a card to help deliver the message, it was created with Studio G stamp and felt doily.

Believe In Your Dreams card by Patty Folchert

This card began with a turquoise base, then I layered a yellow gingham center panel. Next I layered two border strips toward the top as shown, one in plaid and one in a floral print. I did ink the edges in brown ink on the border strips to add some dimension. Then I stamped the image in aquamarine ink directly onto the gingham print. To dress it up I added a felt doily flower with a wood sprinkle center.


The finished card just shines like sunshine, love the color combo on this one. Best part is that it is a very basic design, you could easily adapt to any occasion.

Sending Hugs card by Patty Folchert

Grab those watercolor paints and have some fun! This lovely mandala design and sentiment comes from Hampton Art and this card is much easier than you might think.


Sending Hugs card by Patty Folchert

I started with plain white cardstock and stamped the image multiple times as shown in navy ink. Next I added the watercolor paints in blue and purple shades allowing them to mix together and not bothering to stay in the lines. Then I set that aside to dry.


Then I cut a purple mat to match and adhered to a white cardstock base. Once the panel had dried I added it to the purple mat with my tape runner. Last I stamped the sentiment in black ink onto the white cardstock and cut out and added to card front with 3D dots as shown.


That was all there was to it! Very fun and easy- with a beautiful watercolor effect. So go ahead color outside of lines and let us know how your card turns out.

Mr & Mrs Mason Jar card by Patty Folchert

I started with a green card base and made a pink heart border strip. Next I layered on a light green star paper panel and border punched the edge to look like lace. Then I fussy cut out some fun flowers from the Cup of Ceremony paper to add to the mason jar tag. The circle was stamped onto the plaid paper in black ink and attached to the jar as shown. Then I added the flower cutout with 3D foam dots. For the finishing touch I just added some yellow adhesive sequins.


Easy Peasy lemon squeezy! A quick and easy wedding card for this busy wedding season.
