Raining Glitter- You Brighten My Day!

It’s been raining a fair amount this July. Crazy weather calls for bright and cheery cards, right?! We created these two umbrella cards to help brighten the day. Toss in a little glitter paper and the day truly sparkles! These cards feature our silver, light blue and aqua non-shed glitter cardstock.

We were able to create two cards using the same cut file on Silhouette Cameo. We cut the umbrella in both aqua and light blue glitter paper and then swapped the colors of the umbrella interior for that two-tone effect.

Pretty Peacock cards with Heartfelt Creations

The sentiments are these cards are genuine and heartfelt. We hope you are having a wonderful day.

A few weeks ago we shared a beautiful card using our Cherry Wood paper as the card base. Today we have a couple more cards using our Real Wood Papers. These cards use our Birch Wood Papers and Birch Wood Tape.

We used a few more favorite products from Heartfelt Creations to create these two cards. Heartfelt Creations has a couple lovely cling stamp sets featuring peacocks. You can find information about those here.

We used our Real Birch Wood tape to line the bottom of the peacock card, shown below. We added a line of Prills to create a finished divider between the tape and the card stock and love the results.

Our Real Wood Sheets come in three sizes; 12 x 12, 8.5 x 11, and 6 x 12. These papers come in four finishes; Birch, Cherry, Rustic Birch and Rustic Cherry.

AWESOME Cherry Wood Graduation Card

Handmade cards do not have to be super complicated or embellished. Today we are sharing a graphic and simple card featuring our Real Cherry Wood paper.

Our Real Wood papers have an adhesive backing making it easy to adhere to any surface. We cut the Cherry Wood paper with the AWESOME die from Studio Calico using a Big Shot. Once cut, we removed the adhesive liner from the backside of the Cherry Wood paper and adhered the design to a card front. We will pair this card with our A2 Real Cherry Wood Envelopes.

We have a few high school graduations to attend and need to make multiple cards. This is a simple card design to make multiples of and it is sure to make an impression with our awesome graduates.

Add a little shine – Foil made easy

New Product Alert!

We are super excited to introduce a new unique line of products to our Et Cetera Papers lineup, mini foil sheets. Our foil comes in handy sized sheets for easy handling and quick application. Our introduction to this line includes Silver, Gold and Earth Tone finishes.

Foil Sheets

These Foil sheets transfer without extra tools or heat. Silver and Gold foil packs each come with 10 sheets measuring 4-11/16″ x 3-9/16″. Decorate with all kinds of adhesive. Apply dull side to the adhesive surface and press firmly.

Adding foil is a gorgeous way to make a statement on any project. Did you know you can add foil to your project without a machine or expensive equipment? You can add foil to just about anything with many of the basic adhesives on the market today, the key is the adhesive must be sticky. You can use foam tape, glue dots, rubber cement (once dry) or the best solution … our new 2 in 1 metal nib glue pen!

We created this handmade card with a few simple paper crafting supplies. After the card was assembled we added the little hints of silver foil to the flower centers and background pattern. It was so easy to do. We applied glue to the areas we wanted to foil by drawing directly onto our card with the 2 in 1 metal nib glue pen. Once the glue was dry, we pressed the dull side of the foil directly to the dry sticky adhesive. The foil stuck beautifully and transferred to the card with fantastic results! We love how the silver foil adds that bit of glam and pushes this card to the next level.
