Hello! This past weekend I participated in several crafty Zoom meet-ups. One of them had the theme of “mass production” which would lead to creating multiple cards that could later be donated to health care workers, nursing homes, etc. And we only had 1 hour to make them! I was able to make 8, which I thought was terrific for me. Here’s the first one I created.
I created all of the cards assembly line-style so that I could maximize my time. I really wasn’t sure what I was going for, but I knew I wanted to channel my inner Tenia Nelson and work in a fun style that I don’t get to do very often. I also knew I wanted to work with scraps, and some Gina K Designs stamp sets that I have that just don’t get enough love from me. I used the Autumn Wreath Builder stamp set for my sentiment and the Something Good set for the wood slice.
I played with different scraps of turquoise papers, I flicked on some turquoise ink, and I of course added a few sequins (from the Ocean View Sparkle Blend from Doodles Paper Playground). My wood slice was stamped with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide.
To maximize my white scrap cardstock, some of the cards have a partial slice, but I really like the look of this layout. Most of my sentiments and mats were cut with Fitted Frames from Stampendous. I photographed all of these cards on my glass mat, simply because the white background I usually used made the cards difficult to see, since there’s so much white in all of them.
I am really happy with how these cards look. I think they’re fun, unisex, and interesting. What do you think of this style? Is it something you would try? I hope to make more cards like this…it’s definitely a style that is harder than it looks, but I’d love to get better at it. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
