My Mind’s Eye | Thanks

Terri Davenport is here today to bring us the final installment of our My Mind’s Eye feature week highlighting their new CHA Winter 2013 collections! Today, we are highlighting the Boy Crazy collection once again in this fun “thank you” card.

Balloons are trendy, and this one makes a great makeshift banner to carry our card’s sentiment on. The blue literally pops off the card and highlights the gracious message!

To balance the visual weight of the chipboard piece, Terri layered twill and baker’s twine at the bottom for an interesting piece of texture. It also covers the seam between the two patterned papers to keep it from looking awkward.

Supplies |  Cardstock: Core’dinations. Patterned Paper: My Mind’s Eye “Boy Crazy” (Point the Way). Chipboard: My Mind’s Eye (Boy Crazy). Alphabet Stickers: Simple Stories. Twill: Stampin’ Up!. Baker’s Twine: unknown.

Would you like to make your own valentine’s monster? It’s easier than it looks – here’s how:

Instructions:

1. Cut grasshopper cardstock to 4×9.

2. Create a trifold card with folds at the 2.5 and 6.5 inch marks. Adhere the edges of the bottom fold to the side of the card to create a pocket.

3. Print sentiment on white paper. Add patterned paper and sentiment to pocket.

4.  Punch circles of differing sizes from raven and white cardstock to create eyes. Hand cut ears from patterned paper and teeth from white cardstock. (Don’t worry about matching. Imperfections will only add to the monster’s charm.

5. Adhere pieces to card to create the face.

When you are done, fill the pocket with candy, gum, or a gift card.

This monster isn’t just for Valentine’s Day! The sentiment could also be changed to make it appropriate for a birthday or lots of other uses.

Supplies | Cardstock: Coredinations (Grasshopper), Bazzill Basics (Raven) and Papertrey Ink (white). Patterned Paper: Bella Blvd (Birthday Boy collection). Circle punches (Fiskars).
