You Color My World

You Color My World Card

You Color My World Card…

There are people in this world that bring sunshine and color into everyone’s life.

My goal is to be one of those people.

It’s not always easy, but it sure is worth it.

As I always told my kids, you have the power to change someone’s day just by your smile.

In the famous words of Buddy Elf, “I like Smiling. Smiling’s my Favorite”.

You Color My World Card

The “You Color My World” card mimics a Watercolor Paint Set.

For this card, I wanted a little more upscale look than traditional primary colors.

I made my watercolor paint using rich colors and patterns on a wood-look base.

I used the Color My World Slimline Die Set die set from The Maker’s Movement.

You Color My World Card-Sue's Creative Workshop www.sueeldred.com 2529

Directions:

  • Die-cut the base of the card, using the slimline die set, out of wood-look scrapbook paper using the Cross Over II Die-Cutting System.
  • Die-cut the paint pieces out of patterned paper.
  • Die-cut the “paint pods” out of silver cardstock.
  • I like to run the paper through the Xyron Create a Sticker Mini before die-cutting to make the pieces into stickers. It makes assembling all the parts so much easier.
  • Assemble all the pieces onto the layered cardstock base.

The trick to applying the letters…

  • Make the letters into stickers.  I ran silver cardstock through the Xyron Create-A-Sticker Mini* before die-cutting to add adhesive on the back of the paper.  Once die-cut, the letters became little stickers.  So much easier than trying to glue them into place.
  • To help line the words up straight, I used a clear-gridded transfer tape* to apply to letters.
  • Place the letters onto the transfer tape backward using the lines of the grid as your guide.

  • Place the transfer tape onto the front of the card. Rub over the transfer paper to make sure the letters stick to the card. (You can use a vinyl scraper tool.)
  • Gently pull back one end of the transfer paper and remove.

Floral Pocket Folio Card

The Floral Pocket Folio Card. 

A sweet and simple card made using two of Eileen Hull’s NEW RELEASE dies from Sizzix,

the Folio Page, Pocket and Flowers Die Set, and the Mandala Die Set.

The Floral Folio Card is like two cards in one.

I just love pockets for adding little extras.

The front of the card is a great place to add a sweet note or gift card.

Cardmaking Tips:

  • The flower pieces and mandala were all cut out of white cardstock.
  • Using the ink applicator and distress inks to gently apply ink onto the flower pieces.
  • To add a little extra detail, add gold around the edge of the larger flower pieces using the gold calligraphy pen.
  • Place thin 3D adhesive foam between the larger two flowers to add dimension.
  • Measure and cut the mandala to fit inside the folio pocket. Cut excess mandala away and glue to the inside edge of the folio pocket.
