Avonlea Cards - August Bonus Projects

CTMH Avonlea B & T Paper
The three cards on this page all used patterned paper from the Avonlea collection.  The top two are 6 x 6 square cards and the bottom one is a standard 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" card.  The top one has a Parlor Velvet Rub-On for a little added texture, along with pieces of Black Tulle Ribbon and Slate Satin Polka Dot Ribbon.  The sentiment comes from the Words of Comfort set.

Sentiment is from CTMH Card Chatter - Sympathy Set
I love how simple this card is, but it still has a lot of character.  The sentiment was stamped on a shape cut with the Art Philosophy cartridge and layered over progressively larger shapes.  A couple of Mocha Opaques anchor the sides of the layered labels. The Slate Polka Dot Ribbon adds an elegant touch. Inside the card is a strip of patterned paper adhered to the edge.  The front of the card was cut a little smaller so that the inside paper could be seen peeking out.
Liquid Glass Turns Matte Finishes to Glossy
 The birthday card has pops of bright, stamped images.  Honey ink was used with the images from the Artiste Collection.  The two banners were then covered with Liquid Glass to make shiny embellishments for the card.  All of the design elements were popped off the page using foam tape.
Paper Pieced Cupcake
Even though there is a cupcake cut file on the Artiste cartridge, I hand cut it because I wanted to paper-piece it. The 'sprinkles' on the cupcake are Mocha Opaques Adhesive Gems. 

All three cards are part of my August Bonus - Thank-You Projects for any customer who shops with me this month.  I will email the complete instructions to all online customers.  The projects can be made with whatever papers and inks you have on hand, they do not have to be made with the supplies that are from the samples. The other projects are here and here.

Thank you for stopping by today!  I appreciate you taking the time to visit.
