Happy and Joy {Some Cards}

I pulled out the Winter Fairy Tales collection from Webster's the other day and couldn't help myself. I had to make some cards. At first, I thought I would definitely make a Christmas card. Perfect for the time of year and, of course, that is what the papers center around. But I also love how the colors and patterns are versatile enough for any other sentiment. I love when paper companies do this! As much as I love the traditional color palette for Christmas, I do appreciate versatility! Makes my stash go that much farther. And who wouldn't love working with these beautiful color palette?

Supplies: Paper, Bling, Fabric Tag: Webster's Pages, Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper, Brad: Michael's, Ribbon: Offray

Supplies: Paper, Bling: Webster's Pages, Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper, Flowers: Kaisercraft, Alphabet: American Crafts, Pen: Uniball Signo, Electronic Cutter: Silhouette SD

I used one of my card template shapes from the Silhouette Library to make the shape of the card. Then, I took strips of the patterned paper, adhered to the inside of the flap and then just cut to the shape of the edge. I added faux stitching to the inside flap as well. Creates kind of a cool look when the card is closed and gives a defined area for writing a message on the inside. 

Now onto some more card making! I just can't stop!
