Better Late Than Never!!


Sharing a birthday card I made today using KLM Digital Design –  Stanley The Snail from the new May 2022 release. This image also comes with 2 more sentiments, “You snailed it!” and “Thanks SLOW much!”  Love this sentiment “Better late than never!” as it could be used for so many different occasions.

Using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock, I created a base card of 5.5″ x 4.25″. Using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean, I created the clouds with Lawn Fawn Cuts – Cloudy Stencil directly on the base card. With the dies from Lawn Fawn – Simple Grassy Hillsides and Lawn Fawn – Watercolor Wishes Rainbow paper, I die cut 3 lawn cuts using my Anna Griffin Empress Mini Machine.

I imported the image and sentiment into Microsoft Word and printed them out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. The image was coloured in with Copic markers. Using scissors, I fussy cut around the coloured image and inked around the edges with a black marker. I cut the sentiment with my cutter and added U-Line double sided tape to it and popped it up onto the smallest lawn cut.

The card was now ready to assemble. I added U-Line double-sided tape to each layer of grass. I added a second layer of U-Line double sided tape to the middle layer. I used my fussy cut image to determine where the lawn cuts would be positioned and then popped up each layer onto the base. I applied some glue to the back of the image on the bottom only and adhered it to the card between the 2nd and 3rd layer of grass. I felt like the card still needed something, so I added 3 lady bugs from Forever In Time – Ladybug Gems and a butterfly from Doodlebug Design Inc. – Plum Butterflies Braddies to finish off my card.

Keep On Swinging!!


Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Design –  Tire Swing Gnome from the new April 2022 release. This image also comes with 2 more sentiments, “May your toes touch the sky” and “Why can’t we just swing into Friday?” I think it would be good if we could just swing into Friday and have fun weekends all the time! Don’t you?

Here it is in action.

 

I used The Paper Studio – Primary Simply Solids (4.25″ x 5.5″) for my base card. I wanted to create an interactive swinging card and I found a video on You Tube from My Favourite Things called “Creating an Interactive Swing Card” by Stephanie on Mar 7, 2019. I didn’t have the dies, so I used the video for inspiration and decided to create my own mechanism and die cuts. Using my Cricut, I took a rectangle and added a bunch of circles and then welded them all together to create the tree. I also created the swing mechanism by joining a circle and thin long rectangle and then welding them together. The grass was also die cut on my Cricut Explore. I die cut the trees and swing mechanism using Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and the grass with Recollections – Green cardstock. I coloured in the trees with Copic markers. Using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean, I created the clouds with Lawn Fawn Cuts – Cloudy Stencil. Using the mechanism for placement, I die cut a circle into the cloud background.

I imported the image and sentiment into Microsoft Word and printed them out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. The image was coloured in with Copic markers. Using scissors, I fussy cut around the coloured image and inked around the edges with a black marker. I cut the sentiment with my cutter and ran it through my Xyron Create a Sticker. I attached it to some Recollections – Black cardstock and cut around it again.

The card was now ready to assemble. I applied a small circle double-side pop-dot to the centre of the hole cut earlier on the cloud paper and attached it to a slightly larger circle at the back of the cloud paper. Using my EK Success Powder tool, I went around all of the sides of the pop-up to remove any stickiness. I applied the mechanism over top of the pop-dot and attached some extra two-sided tape. I applied another die cut circle over top of the raised pop-dot. This allowed the mechanism to now move freely back and forth on the page. Using double-sided tape on the back of the cloud paper, I applied the double-sided tape everywhere except around the mechanism and popped it onto the base card. I ran the grass die cut through my Xyron Create a Sticker and applied it directly to the cloud base. I took the 2 tree die cuts that I had created earlier and coloured and glued them both together. I attached the gnome image to the mechanism with double-sided tape and cut off the extra length not required. I added some double-sided tape behind the trees on both sides and only part way along the top on both sides leaving the area for the swinging mechanism free. This was then popped up onto the cloud background. I applied some U-Line double-sided tape and popped up the sentiment on top of the trees. Lastly, I added a penny to the back of the gnome to give it more momentum when swinging.
