Shine On! (A Card of Encouragement)

Recently, my son participated in an Invention Convention- and when he didn’t win a prize, I could tell he took it kinda hard. So I whipped up this little card to encourage him to “Shine On” and not get discouraged.

To make it, I cut 2 circles from Core’Dinations cardstock Gemstones Collection and mounted them at the top of the card. Then I applied a Wacky Tacky Tape star shape and sprinkled silver microbeads on top. I finished it off with a white button threaded with a little embroidery floss, held in place with a mini Glue Dot.

To create the texture at the bottom, I “stacked” three rows of patterned and solid ribbon from the Retro Blue Button & Ribbons collection and adhered it with Zip Dry. I made a text block and brackets with more cardstock and used my trusty Dymo Label Maker to create the words.  A few more coordinating buttons finished off my design.

You could also use the sentiment, "Reach High."

I really love this color scheme, and it would be lovely for either a boy or a girl…and could easily stand in for a graduation card, too! Now wouldn’t it be a lovely card to send to someone who needs a little “pick-me-up?”

To see another card using another color scheme and a flower/ladybug motif, visit my blog, CraftTestDummies.com.

The traditional patriotic colors on this card get a warm vintage feel with softer colors and the use of burlap. Using wood buttons instead of white buttons also adds to the warm feel.  The micro-beads give it a touch of shimmer.  The card is a 6×6 with a craft card stock base.

Original Image Removed - This Image from The Graphics Fairy

UPDATE: 5/11/11 We are pleased as punch to say that the original photo needed to be removed because our incredibly talented Elise Durenburger will have her card published in Cards Magazine in October 2011. Congrats Elise!

Isn’t this card beautiful? Look at all of the layers and texture. Seriously, click on the photo and see the larger image.

I’ll wait.

If there are two things I love they are texture and layers. And who doesn’t love a beautiful silhouette or cameo? Of course a Buttons Galore and More button is the cherry on top! :)
