Welcome to the Neighborhood Card
Chalk can be fun, just ask kids! But who knew you could dress up a card with your kids art tools?! See how Celeste Collette dressed up a gorgeous card using Crafter's Companion embossing folder and her little girls chalk!
I’ve been having so much fun using Crafter’s Companion embossing folders with the eBosser, they have seriously opened the door to new possibilities using paper. Like I said before, making cards has never been an easy thing for me to do, maybe because I just didn’t have the right tools. Thanks to Craftwell’s eBosser and Crafter’s Companion I have created another card...yay.
Just a week ago we had new next door neighbors moved in and I wanted to welcome them to the neighborhood, so I bought some yummy cinnamon rolls from Great Harvest and decided to make a card. I went ahead and embossed the cardstock with Crafter’s Companion Embossalicious Embossing Folder - Regency Damask, I love this folder!
I wanted to do something different with this card so I took my little girls Crayola Chalk and Q-tips and individually added some color to the card.
I think it added the perfect amount of character to this card, I like it.
Then I took a strip of a paint chip card and took the printed “Welcome to the Neighborhood” (that I cut with my Spellbinders tags thin metal die) and with two cute little brads I joined all 3 pieces.
Add a little ribbon and ta-da all done! What do you think?
Thank you Celeste!
