Today I have two cute cards to share. Both are by my homey Teri Anderson and just like every card she makes... they are super special and cool. So let's turn the time over to her.
Teri Anderson here with 2 cards I made. Let's start with the Chickaniddy Date Night collection. You know how they say, "Diamonds are a girl's best friend?" Well, I couldn't agree more. There's just something about those sparkly, shiny nuggets of goodness that make my heart pitter. To be honest, I'm pretty sure most of my best gal pals agree! So I thought how fun would it be to make a diamond-themed card to send to one of them".
"Card making is all about having fun so I decided to have some major fun by using patterned paper to make my diamonds. I simply inked up the diamond stamp from the Date Night clear stamp set with black ink and then stamped it repeatedly on pieces of pattern paper from the Date Night 6x6 paper pad. After that, I fussy cut the diamonds and then just lined them up on my card. I finished the card off with a sentiment from the stamp set.
"This next card is just a fun card with lots of happy elements. I really like mixing and matching patterns so that's what I did for the base of the card. I cut strips of six different papers from the collection and lined them up onto the card base. If you look really close, you'll see I used my sewing machine to add a few stitch lines with white thread to a couple of the papers".
"Then I got to the really fun part! I created the confetti and the sentiment with some of Chickaniddy's gold foil paper. Boy, I sure love Chickaniddy's foil papers. That's because they cut so easy with steel dies and punches! In fact, I cut the hello phrase with a steel die, and I created the confetti by punching circles with a circle punch from it. What I love is they look like they have dimension, but they are nice and flat so I can send this card in the mail without having to pay extra fees for being bulky. I finished the card off by adding a few stickers to it. Happy crafting".
Wasn't that fun?! I even love the way Teri writes. Thanks Teri for sharing these darling cards for a "Fast Fun Friday" Post.
