Have you thought of me?

This week's challenge at Classy Cards 'n Such is Thoughtful using the range of colors from the inspiration photo (see here). There are so many pretty colors on the photo, chances are you will be inspired instantly! Adding sentiments such as "Thinking of you", "In my thoughts", "Here for you" and more would certainly be fitting for the challenge. There is still time to join so I hope you can share your  creation with us in the next couples of days. I went for a "thinking of you" card combined with a Valentine's theme.


I embellished the front of the card with handmade flowers. Crepe paper works wonderful for flowers and though you have to be very careful while you make them it's oh so worth it. I sponged the petals edges with dark ink and sprayed the center with lighter tones. This gave the flowers an organic, vintage look.


When you open this pretty card you are welcomed by a 3D, pop-up Eiffel Tower! I actually cut four flaps on each side of the card with an exacto knife to adhere the towers. I added another cupid and a Thinking of you sentiment from my stamp set Parisian Postcard to the tower to finish the design!


For even more details on how I made my card, please visit Classy Cards 'n Such. Many of the supplies used to make this card are linked below and you can get 10% off if your CCNS order them using my code Gracie-10.

I hope you liked my card for today! I will be back on Saturday with a new card. Until then!

Video Tutorial: Quick New Year's Card with Simple Stories & Deco Foil

I'm back with a fun and really easy to make card for the Holidays or the New Year and I have a video tutorial with Therm O Web today. I'm sure we all are rushing at the very last minute looking for tags and cards and wrapping gifts... I know I always am. That is why my latest Holiday projects have been on the quick and easy side so you can try them out if you need to! The usual theme for New Year's cards is usually monochromatic, metallic... But, what if we used colorful Holiday colors instead? Why not? Well, this time you'll see me use papers from Simple Stories Very Merry Collection. Video Tutorial This is short and sweet video tutorial where I show you how I put together this card. Really with card designing the hard part is figuring out what you want your card to look like in the end but once you have figured out what elements you'll be adding and where you will be placing them the card comes together pretty fast. So the behind the scenes may not ha

WINNERS + Last Minute Gifts for Christmas: Apron Gift Card Holders

Christmas is upon us and I know many of us end up wrapping gifts and making tags and cards in a rush on Christmas Eve. So I am planning ahead preparing some outside of the box last minute gift ideas. This time I'm sharing these cute Christmas Apron gift / money holders! New Holiday Traditions Papers These sweet aprons look perfect thanks to our new digital papers from Holiday Traditions . You can find those here . They are super affordable and you can print them as many times as you like to recreate the same look on several projects. Also, I was able to get to aprons per printed 8 1/2" by 11" sheet. I printed them in a regular inkjet printer and used it to cut the pieces of this SVG file. I used the Precious Giftables cartridge -or should I say Christmas giftables- by the lovely Anna Griffin. It includes two pocketsm, one that you can see on the pictures to place a small card, and another one on the back that is perfect for your money gifts. So yes, they are
