Two bright, fun cards by Patty Folchert

Today I am sharing a sweet card from the Jinger Adams Sweet Tart collection. This collection has some beautiful glitter papers and I used one of them on this card.

 Cherry On Top card by Patty Folchert

Using the small cherry print on white in the paper pad I created the card base. Then I added the blue and white glitter paper with the cherries on top of that base. Next I reached for the blue gingham paper and made a banner, inked the edges and tied the red bakers twine around and finished with a bow. Then I added the banner piece to the card as shown. Then I opened the Sweet Tart glitter tags and trimmed down one, for the sentiment and inked the edges and then added it over the banner toward the right side as shown with 3D foam dots.  Then I folded over some red gingham ribbon and added it to the bottom right. Add the vintage button with red heart goosebump on top of the ribbon. The thread two coordinating buttons with bakers twine and attach as shown. Final touch is the mini red goosebumps over the cherries on the tag.

Hope you enjoyed this sweet treat break, we will be having a blog hop featuring several more cards from the Jinger Adams collection soon so stay tuned!

Thankful Butterfly  Card
Here to share a few tricks today that add texture to any card. This card using Jillibean Soup’s new Cold Avocado Collection of papers and stamps is six layers with a combination of stamping and embossing. Let’s take a closer look:

Thankful For You card by Patty Folchert

Beginning with a white card base I started with the first layer of mat paper, the diagonal stripe. Then I embossed the dandelion paper with a small heart embossing folder and my Cuttlebug, after I inked the edges I adhered it on top of the other mat centered. Then I used the blue polka dot paper to make another smaller mat, inked the edges, curled up the corners and attached with 3D foam dots. The next mat was the yellow floral print which I stamped a floral design on first with light blue ink using the Cold Avocado Large clear stamp set. Using a hole punch I punched the corners to resemble a ticket stub and then attached it to blue polka dot mat with 3D foam dots. The small square heart tab was stamped using the Cold Avocado bite size bits paper, brown ink and the heart stamp from the Cold Avocado/Better Together small set and attached with a 3D foam dot. The sentiment pennant was done the same way on the same paper using brown ink and the sentiment from the same clear stamp set as just mentioned, then cut out in the shape of the triangle tip end and curled up and set in place with glue dots. The final layer is the wood butterfly and it was also stamped with turquoise ink using the “xoxo” stamp from the Cold Avocado/Large set and attached to yellow panel using glue dots. Here is a close up.

That was all it took to layer up some delicious Cold Avocado Soup into a heartfelt greeting with an extra serving of texture.
