MCT Guest Designer: Jeanne!

Happy Monday!  Jeanne here from Jeanne's Paper Crafts. Wow! Can you believe that it is July already? My kiddos were asking me just the other day where June had gone. :) I guess during summer vacation when all you do is sit around, time must go by pretty quickly! For me, the days seem to drag on, especially during the summer when I'm stuck at work!

As most of you know, Emma is taking some time off to take care of her son, Aaron. He was released from the hospital the other day, but she still has a lot to deal with, and so we will continue taking over for her, until she is ready to come back!

For my project today, I created cards for both her and baby Aaron! Let's all keep praying that little Aaron gets all healed up and back to his carefree summer vacation, just as any other 12 year old!


For this card, I created the base of the card in my Silhouette Studio DE with some basic circles. Once I had the first row of four, I then duplicated it three more times to get four rows of circles. Then from there, select all of them and weld them together! I deleted any extra spaces between the circles, because I wanted the base to be basically a blackout. Once you have that, just duplicate once more, flip and move to the top to create the complete card. I always use the internal offset feature to create the different layers, it works beautifully. 


The square layer was created with the rounded corner square/rectangle feature. I sized it to where it would fit perfectly in the center of my card. 


 Supplies:
PaperTrey Ink Kraft and Vintage Cream cardstock
My Mind's Eye Nostalgia 6x6 paper stack
Core'dinations
Lettering Delights Peep Squeakers cut files
Silhouette Studio (card base and square layer)
My Creative Time Floral Sentiments
My Creative Time Pain, Pain Go Away

For Aaron's card, I had to really think about what he might like! It's so much harder to create boy themed cards, because of all the cute little frilly embellishments that are out there now! ;) But while searching through the Silhouette Studio files, I came across this fabulous came controller! Now if Aaron is anything like my own 12 year old, he is definitely into games!


For the card base, I again took the base layer, duplicated and flipped it, lined it up and welded them together.


I added some black faux stitching to the white layer and some white Jelly Roll pen stitching to the buttons. It looked really plain to me. Then I popped up all of the buttons with pop dots.


I also decided to add some Glossy Accents to the colorful buttons on the right, to add just a little dimension to them. Since I used a darker cardstock for my card base, I just duplicated the red layer for the inside of the card, so I could write Aaron a little message.


 Supplies:
PaperTrey Ink Smokey Shadow, White and Pure Poppy cardstock
Stampin' Up Daffodil Delight, Gumball Green and Midnight Muse cardstock
Misc Bazzill red cardstock
Silhouette Studio Library (card base)
My Creative Time Pain, Pain Go Away

I hope Emma and Aaron are doing much better, now that they are back at home!
