Card Day With Bree!

I'm super excited to share these projects with you today!

Here's a Valentine Card,
It's a little ahead of schedule.

It was easy to turn wintery papers into a Love note,
with just a touch of red cardstock and a little glitter.
And instead of putting the card IN the envelope,
I turned the envelope into an embellishment on the front of the card.
You could sneak a love letter, a treat, or gift card
into the envelope if you wanted!

And here's my 2nd card

Hello Sunshine,
again i used the envelope on the front of the card, i really loved the way it looks.
This card reminds me of Grandma's garden,
And could be used for any occasion!

And instead of a third card, I made this little frame.
I used a dollar store frame.
It was dark brown, so I lightly sanded it
and added a couple of layers of acrylic paint on top.

After it dried i sanded some of the edges off to give it a chippy look.

I then used the matte that came with the frame as a base
and covered it with cardstock and patterned paper.

I layered some Prima Leaves, Prima pebbles, Webster's pages button, and a flower.

I added stickers to the journalling card to make the title,
and popped it with foam adhesive.

A giant bow, and voila,
a simply shabby chic little frame!

Don't forget to visit on the 12th and 24th of each month
for lots of

And pick up your copies of the April, May and June CARDS magazine
to see some of THE STORY MATTERS Cards in Print!
