Thankful for the Small Things

Hello friends, welcome and thanks for stopping by!  Once again I have been having more fun in The Studio with Kaisercraft Collectibles and other misc pieces gathering on my desk..   Once again I have been inspired by a set of cards that were designed by the very talented Alicia McNamara - a Boho set - once I got started I could not stop- it has become addictive LOL!  This has definitely become my 'go to' layout for a card!   It is another very quick and easy way to create a pretty card.

The card front has been cut/embossed using leftover pieces of patterned paper and one of my favourite dies - the Spellbinders Nestabilities Scored and Pierced Rectangles Etched Dies then embossed using Platinum Die Cutting Machine and a Spellbinders Embossing Folder.  The card front has been popped up onto a slightly larger pre-cut white card base using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares.

You can see Alicia's cards and tutorial HERE - the stripes got me started, especially when it means I can use the front of 6"x6" Pads - they are perfect for this.  The patterned strip is 9cm long and adhered to the centre of cards on the right-hand side. using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L E-Z Adhesive Runner.

Kaisercraft Collectibles have been layered to the left of the patterned strip and directly onto it..  A row of Want2Scrap Green pearls have been  added across the patterned paper and to each corner of the card front.  It is very easy to create a card in this style - thanks so much Alicia for the inspiration - I may or may not have made over more cards based on this style - I won't bombard you with them! Wink:wink
