Template Thursday-Fab Friday

  Where to go for my template for the week--Swaps, Pinterest, or a Challenge blog?  I decided to try the template seen above from the blog called Fab Friday.  Every couple of  Fridays they feature something as a kick off for you to create a card.  I like the idea of having something to help jump start my brain.

   So, I created 3 cards using this template.  
   4 layers of card stock
    1 saying

For this first card I centered the saying on a doily using the white side of the doily and the Sending Love designer paper. 

  For the next card, I turned the card 90 degrees and changed the card base to Real Red.  I added an envelope found in the Love Notes framelits. The little hearts were punched out from the Confetti Hearts Border punch.

 For my third card I decided to use the chalk board technique which I featured on Technique Tuesday.  I embossed the front of the card using the Happy Heart embossing folder from the annual catalog. Then added these cute kisses from the Sealed with Love stamp set as accent pieces.

Try to make some of your own cards using this template.  It was fun!

Come back tomorrow to see how I took a gift card and fixed it up into a full size card.
