Creating Four Cards Inspired by an Older Card

Hello friends!  Welcome back for the September 2020 edition of Create & Inkspire!  As you are all well aware, Christmas is fast approaching...I don't know about you, but I think we should celebrate extra hard this season, since the rest of this year has been so crazy!

Here is what I'll be sharing with you today.  I was getting low on time for this assignment, and I had NO IDEAS on what to create, so I decided to check out my Pinterest for cards I have made in the past.  I came across one from way back in September of 2013.  You can see that card here.  I really liked the way this card came out, so I thought it would be perfect for this! 

So, I set about gathering the supplies I would need to make 4 cards; four standard A2 card bases, four pieces of colored card stock cut to the size of a card front, four white panels cut to 4 1/16" by 5 1/4," as well as the snowflake punches and embossing folder pictured above.

I began by punching the snowflakes out of each panel; starting with the middle snowflake, and then the ones on each side.  You can eyeball it, or measure...I did a bit of both!  Then I ran each panel through my Cuttlebug using the Snowflake embossing folder.  As you can see, I ended up with four punched and embossed panels, plus a bonus pile of snowflakes for future projects!  :)  After adhering the colored card stock to the card bases, I added foam tape to the debossed side of each panel.  You could also use the debossed side as the front of the card; it looks pretty either way!  These were then centered on the card bases.

I dug through my stash of sequins and bling to add to the centers of the snowflake punch outs.

I then die cut three of each of these sentiments from PaperTrey Ink from the same card stock colors.  After adhering the stacked sentiments to each of the card bases using liquid glue, I placed a stamping block on top for a few minutes until the glue dried.

And there you have it!  Four cards inspired by one made 7 years ago!

I'm so glad you were able to check back in with Create & Inkspire this month!  Thanks for taking the time to read my blog post, and I hope you will send some more time perusing the rest of the site!

Take Care!
