Fathers' Day card made using the *NEW* Wall Decor and More

Hello. friends!!

Today is day 6 of projects made with the *new* cartridges that were released on Hello Thursday. Also today is the 6th day of prizes, so today I am giving away the coveted Straight From the Nest!! All you have to do to win is leave a comment on this post and make sure you are signed up to get email or follow this blog.

The card I made for you guys today was made using the Wall Decor and More cartridge. I think that is a cartridge for cardmakers! Every page in the handbook is an easy card in the making! This cartridge is also the easiest to use because it only has 2 layers. It is seriously an easy cartridge to use!!



I cut that sweet little sailboat at 2".


The 'D' was cut at 1 1/2". Then I cut the 'a' and 'd' at 1". This font is fantastic!! It cuts like a dream!

What a great fathers day card! I do love the idea of only 2 layers. Thanks so much for sharing the cartridge with us.

Karen said...

Loving this Fathers Day card. Thanks for another great idea.

I wasn't sure about this wall decor cart at first as I was not thinking of its other possibilities (ie. not just wall decor!!!) but I see its quite versatile now.

Thanks Courtney.

Jennifer said...

Melanie,

You guys are such enablers! ;) I love your card!!! I already love the idea of using this cartridge with vinyl (I have a new house to decorate), but how great if I could use it to make cards, too? And I'm such a newbie, I like the idea of only 2 layers. You're right: that font looks great, too (of course your faux stitching is what sent it over the top)!

Thank you so much for sharing,

Jennifer

Okay, I am now sold on the possibilities of "Wall Decor". At first glance I was not that impressed with the cart and did not feel it was my style but once again you have shown us just how versatile it can be. I really do like the font choice - the stitching is what sets it apart! Thanks for sharing.

Neat card. I do mostly cards so appreciate you telling that this would be a great cartridge for cards. Kay

Lori said...

I really like this - I have a hard time making manly cards, they usually look to plain so I end up adding stuff then they turn girly. I was not sure about this cart but it has alot of cool stuff on it.

Great card, good to know that a cart titled Wall Decor is really good for cards, can never have too many sources for cards. I can't believe that you are giving away SFTN, oh boy would I love to win that. I have my fingers and toes crossed, guess it will make it hard to walk and work with all of them crossed. LOL thanks for all you do - you know I love it.
