Happy World Card Making Day!!! We have a GIVEAWAY (details at bottom of post) today but as usual we’re making cards; it’s a wonderful way to celebrate WCMD! I’m tickled to show you a little bit of inspiration from my new October 2019 Die of the Month – One Kind Word Alphabet Collage.
I’m the kind that stands in the card aisle for hours on end looking for exactly the right sentiment to express what I’m feeling in a card. Have you ever tried finding a ‘Sorry’ card? Um, right! It was that frustration that led me to create this month’s Die of the Month. You can headline with Sorry, Amazing, Silly, Crazy, Fierce, Happy, Blessed, Gather, Home, Grow, Friend, Bestie and the list goes on and on. No need to stick to one word, you can have two – U Rock, Adore U, My Love. Not only that, you can set your own small
One of the things we share when we share a handmade card, is kindness. What better way to share that kindness than to put the exact word you mean on the front of the card. Nothing like getting right to the point! The Alphabet collage is a card in and of itself but the words you can make with the letters that fall out, are priceless. You can use the 5 x 7 Sentiment Frame or go naked and simply make up your own sentiment.
My Project Today:
I simply can’t describe the draw I have to gingham and it was the strongest inspiration for my cards today. I have two cards that I cut on the diagonal of the gingham paper. I’m a seamstress at heart and if there are any seamstresses here too, you know how we approach cutting fabric. I was able to get two cards out of my cuttings as they are opposites. It just goes to show the flexibility with the die. It has a frame that makes it ultra easy to compose the card and a brilliant choice if you struggle with composition. The frame breaks apart the real estate so that it’s pretty easy to decide what goes into each quadrant.
