Happy weekend! Hope you’re all enjoying it. I’ve spent most of my day tucked away in my craft room making things. I finished two ornaments today as well as made my card for the blog. I also hung all the awesome dragon art prints I got for Christmas. And I even cooked some real food (hey, that’s an accomplishment for me!), so it’s been a pretty productive day.
So, I told you last week that I had a plan for the blog for the next several (read: many) weeks, and today is the start of it. In my collection of scrapbooking supplies, I have a couple sets of patterned chipboard letters, as well as a TON of letter stickers. So, I’m going to use up as much of that as I can and make a series of ” _ is for _____” cards. You may recall that I made an “A is for awesome” card last year. This idea has been in my head ever since, to make a series of cards with the same phrasing, but different layouts and colors.
I did use the same wording for this card as for the original, but it’s definitely a different design and color scheme. I started with a blue base card and just layered everything on, using a few scraps along the way.
It’s going to be interesting trying to match paper and cardstock that I have to the various colors that are on the big letters. As well as trying to come up with good words for some of the letters! If anyone reading has suggestions for words that are good for cards, please comment! I’ve got ideas for some, but I didn’t really think much about how hard some of the letters might be when I decided on this idea.
Hmm, I hope I don’t regret this!
Anyway, hope you enjoy reviewing your alphabet over the next few months as I make these cards!
