I made two very clean and simple cards today that are similar but different. What? Bear with me!
The joy card started out as an excuse to use my newest toy – my embossing diffuser. I really like the idea of being able to emboss just certain parts of the card and not being smart enough to figure out how to do it, I bought something to help me! So I grabbed my large polka dot embossing folder, the circle diffuser and went to town.
Once I was done embossing, I used a cotton ball and some cherry cobbler ink to highlight the polka dots. The polka dot frame was a leftover from a project and just sitting on my desk. I die cut JOY from cherry cobbler, popped it up and framed it. I added a bit of bling and love the overall look.
The second card was made for my card club with the same idea of the Joy card. This time, I used my polka dot stencil and some pear pizzazz ink to color in some dots. A die cut of NOEL in pear pizzazz and some bling finished off the card. Both cards were layered with their corresponding color to finish off the looks.
I hope you enjoyed seeing these two versions of essentially the same card!
Thanks for stopping by today!
I will add that my 3 sparrows card was selected as a Pals Paper Artist pick this week! I am so excited about that!
