Get Well Soon!

Get Well Soon by Corri Garza

 This get well card by designer Corri Garza is beautiful without being fancy. Elegant in its simplicity, it conveys its message without wearing out the recipient with overwhelming detail for the eye.

 One of the subtle touches that makes this card really shine is the extra detail in the clouds. They are both embossed and glittered, giving them depth and texture, before being adhered with dimensional adhesive. To add glitter to the clouds, Corri found that it works best if you run the cloud through the Xyron first, sprinkle it with glitter and then emboss it.

Supplies | Cardstock: Recollections (white, kraft). Decorative Tape: KI Memories (Blue Skies Flashback). Punches: Fiskars (Large Cloud, Extra Large Cloud), unknown corner rounder. Embossing Folder: Cuttlebug (D’Vine Swirls). Glitter: Martha Stewart (Crystal Glitter – Coarse). Stamps: Scrappy Moms (Everyday Greetings). Adhesive: Xyron (X), 3M (ATG), unknown pop dots.

A Happy Birthday cupcake!

Happy Birthday by Corri Garza

With this festive (and yummy looking) birthday card, designer Corri Garza shows the ease of pulling together a perfectly coordinated card from a collection kit. The stickers and patterned paper are all from the Cakewalk collection by October Afternoon, immediately creating a perfectly put together look for these birthday wishes!

This card’s true delight, however, is in the subtle texture and detail of the cupcake focal element. The use of embossing folders to add texture to the die cut element is a quick and easy step that takes the cupcake from simple to amazing. The diamonds on the bottom create a more realistic cupcake look, and the swirls on the top give movement and depth to the patterned paper “frosting”.

As a last special treat, Corri gave the card some sparkle by applying glitter over the heart area on the cupcake’s bottom wrapper. To make the application of the glitter less messy, Corri ran the base layer of the cupcake through the Xyron, applied the layers together and then sprinkled the heart area with coarse glitter.
