Hello everyone! Kimberly here with a wonderful new collection called Happiness is Homemade. It is sweet, retro, and homey. This collection will make wonderful layouts, recipe books, and even small pieces of kitchen décor, but today I used it to make a card to add a smile to someone’s day.
As I looked through all the wonderful tags in the Happiness is Homemade Ephemera Pack, I saw this quote. I wanted to use this sweet and silly sentiment immediately! From there, I began working on adding layers to my card to make this tag be the focal point. I started by foam-mounting the sentiment on another tag from the same ephemera pack.
To help the sentiment stand out, the rest of the papers I chose did not have the same colors, allowing the pinks to pop. Immediately behind the tag, I created a banner from a delicate blue flower patterned paper from the Happiness is Homemade 6x6 Paper Pad by notching the ends of the strip of paper with scissors.
For the card base, I could not choose from all the wonderful patterned papers in the paper pad, so I chose two and created a checkerboard-like background. One final layer was added, a wood patterned tag, tied with twine, along with a button.
