A Peek into November CARDS

08 Nov

I have a bit of a bias towards the month of November. It is my favorite for several reasons, one being that my birthday is this month! It also hosts my most favorite holiday of the year, Thanksgiving. Needless to say, the November issue of CARDS always thrills me. The colors. The themes. They’re always fabulous. If you haven’t had your hands on this issue, you need to. It is one that shouldn’t be missed!

One card that I loved was designed by Aimee Kidd. The wooden doily is perfect, and I adore the lace and ribbon she used. See below for the products she used and a step-by-step how to.

Card is 5 x 7”
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics; Patterned paper, badge, butterfly label sticker: October Afternoon; Seam binding, lace trim, kit (November 2011): The Paper Bakery; Wooden doily: Maya Road; Sentiment stamp: SP & Co.; Spray mist: Tattered Angels; Corner rounder: EK Success; Adhesive: Helmar Design Studio

Cover the front of a white card base with silver textured cardstock and ink the edges brown. Trim a panel of light blue floral paper, round the upper corners, ink the edges brown, and adhere it on the center of the card. Cut a smaller panel of book paper, round the upper corners, ink the edges brown, and mount it on the center of the light blue panel. Back a strip of orange seam binding with lace trim and glue it down the center of the card. Spray a wooden doily with silver mist, affix a fancy orange seam binding bow and flower on the center of it, and attach it to the center of the card. Place a metal rooster badge on the center of the doily. Stamp a sentiment in brown onto a butterfly label sticker and add the sticker across the bottom of the wooden doily.
