Hello Altenew friends! This is Virginia here. I am delighted to share a shape card project with you. Shape cards are simply eye-catching and playful. Today's post is to show you how easy it is to mass product these super cute shape cards in minutes!
The Home Sweet Home stamp set comes with a sweet house shape and is perfect for creating a shape card. I started out with creating a colorful background with Altenew Pigment Ink.
You can use the “Ink to Paper” approach by swiping pigment ink directly to paper. I used a Gel Plate and brayer to spread out the ink. The Altenew Pigment Ink are rich and vibrant and cane be easily mixed.
Once I finished inking the paper and let dry. I then stamped the houses with Jet Black Pigment Ink and die cut them all.
I die cut 6 more pieces of house on Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock (110 lbs). To create a fold on top, I scored a straight line at the half inch mark with Crafter's Essential Bone Folder. Once you applied the 2 in 1 Glue Pen, you have a house shape card!
To make the houses even “funner”, I added the silver glittery clouds with Dazzling Diamond Glitter Cardstock.
This is a fun project to do with the special little ones in your life. Imagine that you can use them as gift tags, house-warming card, hostess card sets, thank you cards, placement cards…etc. You can even create a Christmas village! I hope that you are inspired by these houses of cards! Thank you for stopping by!
This is an unusual shape, Virginia! I like it!
These are so cute and so fun and so clever!! Thanks for sharing.
The Home Sweet Home shape cards are so unique! So cool to see them all lined up in the picture. What a great project!
Still don’t understand Virginia how the fold was made. Is it a separate piece of cardstock? Then trimmed to 1/2″, folded and glued? Which side? Does it matter? Or if not separate where did the fold come from?
Glad that you like it, Sharon!
I appreciate your feedback, Cindy!
Thank you for your kind words, Linda!
Marilyn, you understand them correctly. The fold was made with a separate cardstock (in the house shape). I then scored and folded a line around 1/2″ at the top (doesn’t matter how you fold), then glued to the card front and that’s it! Hope this helps.
Oh I LOVE your little neighborhood of houses! And in rainbow colors! Such a charming idea, Virginia!
LOVE these, Virginia! And in rainbow colors? Super love!
