Today, on the Bella Blvd blog, we are showing off some of the CHA booth projects using the Thankful collection. I already shared my Thankful layout last week, but I have a few cards that I created with the collection that I thought I would share today.
I had used one of the quote stickers on a birthday girl card, and wanted to use this fun chevron quote sticker on one of my Thankful cards too. It's the perfect size for the front of a card. I used the leaf patterned paper as the base of my card, and then did my little paper framing trick with the brown paper, and just left the white cardstock showing through the center.
Love this cute little cloud from the Cute Cuts paper. I did a little back and forth machine stitching along the center of the cloud, which isn't super noticable here.
Once my chipboard alphas were adhered to the quote sticker, I adhered the entire piece to the card using pop dots. I also tucked the cute little sunflower flag in, and adhered it with pop dots as well.
I just had to use the adorable turkey from the Cute Cuts patterned paper for this card. I'm really not a fan of "fussy cutting" (which is the technical term for sitting and doing tedious cutting out of shapes), but every now and then I will do it. I hand cut the turkey twice, from 2 different sheets of paper.
Then I cut out some of the feathers from the second turkey, so that I could adhere them directly over the matching feather on the first turkey, but using pop dots to give them a little lift. I also decided at the last minute to cover those lifted up feathers with some paper glaze, to give them a shiny look.
Make sure to stop by the Bella Blvd blog today, where you can see more Thankful projects from our CHA designers! And I'm thinking that I'll share a fun birthday boy layout tomorrow. Yep, that's what I'm going to do ;)
