Always and Forever


Hi there, Artlings!  It’s Suzanne here today with a simple, elegant version of Always & Forever.  This is perfect for a guy for Valentine’s Day, but by changing the colour of the gently sponged ink, you can pink it right up!  By adding dimension to each layer, the result is a super special card for a super special person. Wouldn’t this make a stunning wedding or anniversary card?

This card is so simple to make. It took me longer to photograph it than to make it.  And the photo really doesn’t do it justice!

Here is how you can make this card!

Rose Gatefold Petal-Fold Card

Hi Crafty Friends,

 It’s Frances here and it’s my turn to post a tutorial today for the Die Cut Design Team. This time round I decided to play with the ModaScrap Gatefold – Elegant Roses die to create a “Petal-Fold” card. It is an elegant card, suitable for weddings, invitations or any occasion where you want something a little bit different.

As the cardstock I selected to use for my card was duo-tone (also called “duplex”) – dark red on one side and light red on the other – I decided to keep to the three colors of white, dark red and light red for my card. By keeping the insert loose, I could turn it with the back showing when the card is closed, revealing the light red through the openings of the “petals”.

It’s Suzanne here today with a sweet and simple card, just right for Valentine’s Day or whenever you want to send a rose to someone special. I love how the Flourished Heart forms a vase! Hand-write “You Are” above “Beautiful” and it says it all. Or if you don’t feel confident about your handwriting, leave the front as shown and simply add the words ‘You Are Beautiful’ (along with any additional hand-written or computer-generated message) to the inside of the card.

Sending Hugs & Kisses

Hello, it’s Diana and I’m so excited to share with you a card I made using some new A Way With Words dies.  This is a favorite technique of mine – to use die-cuts and create my own embossed background.  Here I repeated the “Sending” in the background and spotlighted the “Hugs & Kisses.”  It’s so easy to change the colors to suit the recipient, too!
