Mother’s Day Card

Hello We R fans! Kimberly here with a special Mother’s Day card. There is nothing better than making our moms feel special, especially with a handmade card! But what is even better is when some great tools from We R Memory Keepers and a cute paper pad from DCWV make it quick and easy. Because, let’s face it, we need some time for ourselves on Mother’s Day too!

Mother's Day Card by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

This card started with the Paper Party Stack from DCWV. This pad is full of great patterned papers, but also a fun bonus…

…pre-cut pieces that create rolled flowers! When I saw these rolled flowers, I knew they would make the perfect “O” in mom. What a huge wow factor!

To begin, I cut my patterned paper for my card layers with the We R Memory Keepers Trim & Score Board. This 12×12 trimmer folds up, so it sits on your work space easily. Plus, when making a card, I can choose to score and create a clean fold on my card stock.

To create the two ms for mom, I used the We R Memory Keepers Mini Alphabet Punch Board. The letter m can be made two different ways, both are shown in the book that comes with the board. I chose the one-piece method, due to the patterned in the paper I had chosen.

To give some extra depth to the card, and to make the word mom really stand out, I applied the letters to the card with foam adhesive.

Mother’s Day Gift Idea: DIY Floral Home Decor

Hello everyone!  It’s Eva here today sharing a tutorial on how to create a beautiful Mother’s Day gift: Floral Home Décor using the gorgeous Cool Kids Stack from DCWV and the Trim and Score Board.

Mother's Day Floral Letterboard Gift Idea by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

To create the leaves and flowers start by choosing your favorite papers from the Cool Kids paper pad from DCWV. I love this pad! It has 36 papers and some of them include gold foil. Plus, the papers are thick and double sided, perfect for any kind of craft project!

Use your Trim and Score Board to score your paper every ¼ inch.

Rotate your paper 90 degrees and flip the blue tab to trim your paper. For the big flowers I trimmed my paper at 1 ½ inch, for the medium flowers at 1 ¼ inch and for the small flowers at 1 inch.

Trim and Score Board by We R Memory Keepers

These flowers are like rosettes but with a twist. To make them, I used my Alphabet Punch Board and made two marks with a pencil on the board: one in the middle of the left circle and one 1 inch apart.

To create the scallop borders I lined up my paper on the first mark and punched.

 Square Punch Board by We R Memory Keepers

Move your paper to the left and line up the narrowest part of your paper on the second mark. Continue this way until you have finished punching the strip of paper.

Alphabet Punch Board by We R Memory Keepers

Use your Crafter’s Glue Gun to close the flower and use a small fringed paper to make the flower center, simply roll it and glue the edge.

We R Memory Keepers Trim and Score Board flowers by Eva Pizarro

To create the leaves I also used my Trim and Score Board and scored every ¼ of an inch. I trimmed a few strips of paper in different heights and cut the border following the image on the picture. Using your Crop a Dile make small holes on the bottom of the leaves and use a small thread to keep the leave together.

These are some of the flowers and leaves I created. See how gorgeous that foil looks? And I love the dimension of these rosette flowers!

You can use your flowers for any project but I used them to decorate my Letterboard. I created two clusters: one on the top right corner and one of the bottom left corner.

I attached my flowers with 3D dots and when I change the quote on my Letterboard I can use them to make another project!

My decor was a hit, everyone loved it! The flowers gave it a whole new look and dimension to my Letterboard!

Mother’s Day Gift Wrap with the Trim and Score Board

Hey there We R fans, Laura here today! Mother’s Day is right around the corner. I have three pretty Mother’s Day gift wrap ideas for you to add that extra special touch for your gifts for mom. All the gift wrap ideas are made with the DCWV Botanical Beauty Double Sided Cardstock Stack and the Trim & Score Board.

Mother's Day Gift Wrap by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

Gift Card Holder

Sometimes a gift card can be the best gift for mom. But handing her a plain gift card isn’t very fun. It is easy to create a gift card holder. Start by trimming your paper to 7 ½” x 5”. Place the long edge of the paper at the top of the Trim & Score board and score the paper at ½”, 3 ½”, 4”, and 7”. Then, turn the paper to the shorter side and score the paper at ½” and 4 ½”.

We R Memory Keepers Trim and Score Board

Fold the paper at all the score lines. Cut the score lines to create the flaps at the bottom and the top. Cut the corners off one end.

Mother's Day Gift Wrap by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

Use adhesive to assemble your gift card box. Be sure to leave one end open to place your gift card inside. Then, close that end of the box, as well.

Mother's Day Gift Wrap by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

To embellish the box, wrap it in twine and cut out one of the beautiful tags included with the cardstock stack. I used my Crop-A-Dile to punch a hole in the tag.

Mother's Day Gift Wrap by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

Box with a Lid

For the next gift wrap idea, I am going to show you how to create a box with a lid. Start by trimming your paper to 10” x 10”. Use the Trim & Score board to score lines at 3” and 7”. Flip the paper 90° and repeat this process.

Turn the paper diagonally on the Trim & Score Board and score a line from the corner into where the score lines intersect. This will allow you to more easily fold the corners in.

We R Memory Keepers Trim and Score Board

Fold the paper on all the score lines. You will fold the four corners in towards the middle of the box.

Mother's Day Gift Wrap by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

Attach all the flaps with adhesive. If you find the adhesive is not holding your box together, use hot glue instead.

Mother's Day Gift Wrap by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

To create the top of the box you will follow the same steps as above, however this time, start with a piece of paper 5 ¾” by 5 ¾”. Score the paper at ¾” and 5”. Flip the paper 90° and repeat this process. Again, score the diagonal line at each corner. Fold the flaps in towards the middle of the lid and use adhesive to secure.

I wanted to add a pretty rosette to the top of the box, so I used a scrap of paper that was 1 ½” by 12” long and scored it every ¼”. Fold the paper accordion style.

We R Memory Keepers Trim and Score Board

Use strong grip double sided tape like super sticky red tape to secure the ends together in a circle. Press the rosette flat. Cut a one-inch circle and use hot glue to adhere it to the center to keep the rosette in place.

We R Memory Keepers Trim and Score Board

Use an adhesive foam dot to attach the rosette to the top of the box. Fill the box with small treats for mom.

Mother's Day Gift Wrap by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

Gift Bag

The last wrapping technique I am going to share is how to create a gift bag. This bag requires two sheets of patterned cardstock. Trim each paper to 7 ½” x 11”.

With the shorter side of the paper at the top of the score board, score a line at ½” and 3 ½”. Then turn the paper 90° and score the paper at 8”. Repeat this process for the other sheet of paper.

We R Memory Keepers Trim and Score Board

Fold the paper at all the score lines and trim on the score lines where the bottom bag flaps will be. Trim the corner off.

Mother's Day Gift Wrap by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

Assemble the bag using adhesive. To create ribbon handles, punch two holes at the top of the bag on either side using your Crop-A-Dile.

Mother's Day Gift Wrap by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

Thread ribbon through the holes towards the center of the bag and tie a knot in each end to keep it from coming through the holes. On one side I threaded one of the pretty tags that I cut from the patterned paper on the ribbon before I threaded it through the hole.

This little bag is perfect for gift giving!

Mother's Day Gift Wrap by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

I hope these Mother’s Day gift wrap ideas inspire you to not only find a thoughtful gift, but also wrap it up beautifully. The Botanical Beauty papers are perfect for Mother’s Day. And since the papers are double-sided the gift wrap is pretty both inside and out!

DIY Geometric Candles

Hello everyone!  It’s Eva here today bringing you a tutorial on how to make geometric candles using the Wick Candle Maker and the Triangle Score Guide.

Geometric Candles with the Wick Candle Maker by Eva PIzarro for We R Memory Keepers

As soon as I received the Wick Candle MakerI knew what kind of candle I wanted to create! I love geometric shapes and I thought it would be fun to use the Triangle Score Guide to make molds for my candles.

This was my first time making candles and it was very fun and easy! The Wick Candle Maker kit has everything you need to make candles: paraffin wax, cotton wicks, pigment powder and 3 candle molds with a removable bottom so the candles are easy to remove.

To begin simply place the paraffin wax in the Wick Candle Maker. Add pigment powder and scent and turn it on. It takes 10-15 minutes for the paraffin to melt. Once it is done simply use a skewer to mix everything.

Tip: Start with your lighter colors first, that way if you have some spare wax you can add another pigment and create another color.

Geometric Candles with the Wick Candle Maker by Eva PIzarro for We R Memory Keepers

Use your Triangle Score Guide and your Trim and Score Board to create your geometric paper molds. The triangle Score Guide comes with a booklet with instructions for several shapes.

Trim and Score Board by We R Memory KeepersTriangle Score Guide by We R Memory Keepers

I decided to make a pyramid, an octahedron, a tetrahedron, and a tube shape like one I did for this Geometric planter years ago. I used my Crafter’s Essential USB Glue Gun to create my geometric shapes and added extra glue to all the creases. You could also add a coat of paint or a sealant to prevent leaking.

USB Glue Gun by We R Memory Keepers

Cut your wick to the desired length and knot it to the metal rod. Place the wick inside the mold and fill the candle

Geometric Candles with the Wick Candle Maker by Eva PIzarro for We R Memory Keepers

To fill the candle simply open the valve. I suggest you add a small amount of melted wax and see if you have any leaks. A small leak can be solved by putting the candle in the fridge. The wax will cool and will seal the leak.

Geometric Candles with the Wick Candle Maker by Eva PIzarro for We R Memory Keepers

Remove your candle from the Wick and let it cool until it is completely room temperature.

Geometric Candles with the Wick Candle Maker by Eva PIzarro for We R Memory Keepers

Because wax shrinks when it is cold your candle will probably cave in in the center and you will need to add a small amount of wax at the end to even the candle.

What I did was pour a small amount of wax into a baby jar and when my candle was dry I heated the jar on a pot with water and added the melted wax. It is important to keep the same candle mix because it is very hard to recreate the same candle color!

Geometric Candles with the Wick Candle Maker by Eva PIzarro for We R Memory Keepers

Finally, once your candles are dry, tear off the paper and use your Crafter’s knife to clean up the edges.

Geometric Candles with the Wick Candle Maker by Eva PIzarro for We R Memory Keepers

Add different color layers to make your candles different! You can make ombre candles, rainbow candles and even add glitter or dried flowers to your mix!

Geometric Candles with the Wick Candle Maker by Eva PIzarro for We R Memory Keepers

And here are my final candles! This was my first time making candles and it was a lot of fun! The geometric molds worked out great and I love the vibrant pigment colors of my candles! The Wick Candle Maker made the job very easy and with almost zero spills!

Spring Card

Hello, We R Memory Keepers friends and fans, Becki here to share a Spring card with you. When the Crafters Essentials Detail Scissors landed on my doorstep I had no idea that they would become my new favorite scissors especially for fussy cutting. Fussy cutting is one of my favorite techniques so I’m always on the hunt for a great pair of fine tipped scissors. I love these scissors and they make fussy cutting. Sometimes, cutting tight curves or cutting small pieces can be tricky. The detail scissors make those tricky areas so much easier!

Typecast Type Writer Spring Card by Becki Adams for We R Memory Keepers

As I mentioned I created a spring card to share with you today. I used the DCWV Fairytale Floral paper pad to create this card. This paper pad has the most beautiful florals. The detailed florals were no match for the Detail Scissors. They easily trimmed around and in between the flowers and all of the tiny leaves.

Typecast Type Writer Spring Card by Becki Adams for We R Memory Keeper

To create the card base, I cut several concentric squares from patterned papers in the paper pad. After stacking all the squares together to create the card base, I added a few fussy cut florals to the center of the card.

Typecast Type Writer Spring Card by Becki Adams for We R Memory Keeper

The typecast typewriter made adding a sentiment to this card so easy. The paper pad had such cut apart elements that I couldn’t resist using one of them on this card. The sentiment fit perfectly in the peach banner.

Typecast Type Writer Spring Card by Becki Adams for We R Memory Keeper

Next time I sit down to create I know I’ll have the Detail Scissors in my hand. They will be a staple in my craft room for all of my crafting projects. Now, if I can just figure out how to keep my family from taking my Detail Scissors to use on their projects.

Thank you for stopping by the We R Memory Keepers blog. Happy crafting my friends. I’ll see you again soon!

Easy Planner Inserts with the Tag Punch Board

Hello everybody! Soraya here with you today for a new project using the Tag Punch Board, the new tool that allows you to create effortlessly tons of tags for all your different projects. It’s a mini board but definitely effective. I created a planner insert and extra photo-tags!

Tag Punch Board Planner Inserts by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

Tag Punch Board Planner Inserts by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

To make the insert and the photo tags you will need to gather with your planner some colorful papers, bakers twine, black cardstock, diecuts or stickers and of course the Tag Punch Board. I also used the fantastic Planner Punch Board and the Hole Reinforcer Punch for a perfect finish!

Tag Punch Board Planner Inserts by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

First of all, to create my insert I cut a beautiful paper with pink chevrons from the Heidi Swapp Hawthorne collection. The dimensions are made to fit my mini memory planner: 6 5/8 x 2.5 inch. I used my Trim & Score Board for a quick and perfect cut!

Trim and Score Board by We R Memory Keepers

Let’s shape the tag! This board is very easy to use since you have different guides to help you chose the depth you want to give to the corners. The more you slide the paper up on the board, the deeper the angles will be! So I decided to place the paper on the G line. Once you cut the first corner, turn the paper on the other side and repeat the process on the same line. Use the punch you have on the board to make the tag hole and voilà!

Now grab your Planner Punch Board and your Hole Reinforcer Punch to transform this tag into a cute planner insert! I used some black cardstock and black twine to contrast with the bright colors. Add some decorations and your tag/insert is ready to be placed in your planner.

What about creating photo-tags to add more details in your planner?! So easy and fun! Repeat the same process but use a photo instead of the paper. The Crop-A-Dile will help you to enlarge the tag hole so that you’ll be able to add a reinforcer before inserting it to your binder! So cool !

Slumber Party Invite and Banner

Hello WeR fans and welcome back to the blog today! Chantalle with you again and I’d love to share this ‘girl powered’ sleepover invitation and banner I created with the new Tag Punch Board with you all.
 Slumber Party Invitation by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

Slumber Party Invitation by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

Untie the bright orange ribbon and this girly invite for my little one’s BFF, opens to reveal slumber party info…

I’ve used a drool-worthy Crate Good Vibes glittery pompom frame as the main embellishment on the front. I love the bright pops of colour mixed with the softer pastel shades. Good Vibes and Pink Paislee’s Wild Child were a great mix for this project. These gorgeous mismatched chipboard alphas are from Paige Evans ‘Oh My Heart’ collection.

Slumber Party Invitation by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

The invitation consists of four large combined tags, which were created by folding a length of paper in quarters and then trimming the tops and punching, using the Tag Punch Board.

Inside, there is a circular window area where you can view information that one folds out to reveal.

Slumber Party Invitation by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

Below, you can see step by steps of how the invite came together.

I started out by trimming a sheet of Pink Paislee ‘Summer Lights’ patterned paper to 9 (w) x 6 (h) inches using my Trim & Score Board.
I then scored it half way down and again at half way across. I folded it so that it was a long, 9×3 ‘strip’ and then trimmed the tag shape using the Tag Punch Board at marking ‘E’ with the blade provided. I repeated this on the opposite side as well, then punching each end so I could run some ribbon for a closure later on.

Next, I opened strip up and on the lower half, punched a circular shape using one of my favourite tools, my Circle Clear Cut Punch.

Tag Punch Board by We R Memory Keepers
Folding the paper over, you can see how the punched circle creates a little window where I could put some teaser info.

For a bit of dimension and fun, I’ve snipped a heart shape out of some Honeycomb paper and placed it in the fold, so when you open the invite, the heart opens up.

Slumber Party Invitation by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers
I opened tag tag shape right up and popped it into my Typecast Typewriter to fill in some info. (My ribbon was a bit dry so forgive the first randomly spaced word, lol. I replaced the ribbon and all was well!) The text needs to show through the punched circle, so make sure you type on the correct side. TIP: I drew some very light pencil lines to guide my typing so I knew where it would be within the shape.

I used some American Crafts chipboard and puffy stickers for the headings and a bit of stamping (Crate Good Vibes Stamp Set) in and amongst the typed text and chipboard letters. TIP: A great way to make sure your alphabet stickers are perfectly aligned is to use Thicker Alignment Guides by American Crafts. (shown below on the hexagon shaped one.)

Clear Cut Punches by We R Memory Keepers Slumber Party Invitation by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

I’ve included a map in this invite, but you could also pop in some photos, a shaker element or maybe even the lyrics to your kiddo’s favourite song!

Slumber Party Invitation by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

 

I’ve also created a little banner, which can be hung in the lounge or bedroom on the night.
 Slumber Party Banner by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers
The banner also uses tags cut with the Tag Punch Board, which have been strung onto a DIY Party Light Strand. I mixed up my bulb covers and used green, pink and gold. These light strands are so versatile. I’ve used them over and over again for various projects.

Mini Alphabet Punch Board by We R Memory Keepers

To create the banner, I created 9 tags using my Tag Punch Board, each 3×4 size. I trimmed into shape and punched a little hole at the top, making a teeny slit near the top between the punched hole and the top of the tag.

Next, I created some lettering, spelling out the words ‘GIRL POWER’ using my Mini Alphabet Punch Board. I’ve continued with the brights/pastel mix and used my Dear Lizzy Star Gazer 6×6 Pad for the letters.

Mini Alphabet Punch Board by We R Memory Keepers 

The finishing touch on the banner was a bit of sparkle in the form of some shimmering gold Mylar. I used my Fringe & Score Board to trim sections, which I then cut in half and attached to my banner, in between the letter cards and glittery globes.

Fringe and Score Board by We R Memory Keepers

By cutting the little slit, you can easily just pop the card on to the light strand. I used my new super sharp Crafters Essentials Fine Precision Scissors. So lightweight and amazing for fine detail work!

Pocket Page with the 3 Way Corner Punch

Hello We R Memory Keepers fans! Soraya here with you today for another fun project. I’m so excited to introduce you a new release: the 3 Way Corner Punch! I made this pocket page with this great tool and some others of my favorite products you already know: the Square Punch Board, the Mini Alphabet Punch Board, the Fuse Tool and the new Trim & Score Board! Here we go!

Pocket Page by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

First of all, I used the Square Punch Board to prepare the papers that I will need to create the letters. So I cut 4 rectangles (2.5 x 1.5 inch) in a row! So easy! (See my previous tutorial using the fabulous Square Punch Board.)

Square Punch Board by We R Memory Keepers

Then I grabbed my Mini Alphabet Punch Board and created the letters L, V, and E for the word LOVE. I followed the instructions that are in the guide book and shaped the letter V with my Stitch Happy scissors.

Mini Alphabet Punch Board by We R Memory Keepers

I decided to divide the first pocket in 4 parts in order to place the letters L, O, V and E, and create 4 shaker sleeves with my wonderful Fuse Tool. I started to place the letter V on the bottom left, add some sequins then fused it all. I repeated the process four times and I added at last a heart to replace the letter O. I just love how it turned!

Extra tip: use the grid on the Fuse mat to place your ruler. You will get nice straight line!

The Bloom Storage is absolutely perfect to gather my Valentine supplies, and it’s so beautiful too. I couldn’t resist to store my We R sequins on the top!

I divided the second pocket in 2 parts and fused it in the middle. I used the new Trim & Score Board to cut the paper triangles. Love this design as well!

With the new 3 Way Corner Punch, I rounded the corners of my 3 cards. We can say that this punch is genius since it offers you 3 different sizes: 4mm, 7mm and 10mm. For the big cards, I chose the large 10mm size.

I also rounded the top corners (7mm) of this cute diecut before sticking it to the card! You can even punch little pieces of embellishments with the 3 Way Corner Punch: it’s comfortable, light and easy to press!

Hello WeR fans and welcome back to the blog today! Chantalle with you again, with some ideas on how to make a simple gift tag a bit more exciting, thanks to some of my fave WRMK tools!

Interactive Gift Tags by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

 

These tags can serve as embellishments, card and tag combined on your next gift! They are a snip to put together and will add a personal touch to giftwrap.

My gift box has a sleeved pull out tag. I started out with a strip of gorgeous shooting star paper from my Dear Lizzy Star Gazer 6×6 Pad. I made the tag about 2×3 inches. I’ve left the little perforated strip at the top because the print was super cute and I think it added a nice bit of contrast.

I then used my new (and so very clever!) 3-Way Corner Punch to round the edges. This tool allows you to round corners at 4, 7 & 10mm angles. Three tools in one and butter-soft to punch!

Interactive Gift Tags by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

My sleeve consists of a sheet of blush pink vellum from a DIY Party Vellum Pad. Eyeballing it, I trimmed a piece, folded sit over and machine stitched it shut. TIP: If you accidentally sew your pocket a bit too small, simply trim off a bit of the tag and re-round the corners.

I used a 1-inch circle punch to punch a semi circle shape at the top of the sleeve, so it would make it easier to grab the tag inside. Simply slide your paper in to the point of it being half way across the circle punch, if that makes sense!

Interactive Gift Tags by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers 

I popped a teeny pre-cut tag shape from a pack of Crate Paper Good Vibes Ephemera on top of my tag and punched a little hole in them both, using my Crop a Dile. I adhered a little speech bubble shape from the ephemera pack on top of the bottom tag. It is lined so it’s perfect for writing a note. The two tags have been tied together with some checkered ribbon and embellished with a gorgeous little flower from a pack of Pink Paislee Wild Child Puffy Stickers.

My other tag does a fantastic job of multitasking! It serves as a simple gift wrap as well as containing a card. You could also use this area to enclose a gift card or voucher.

This type of ‘neck talker’ is a favourite of mine for gifting. It is a great way to use up a longer length of scrap paper. This one uses a strip of stunning Crate Paper Good Vibes ‘All Good’, about 4 inches across and about 10 inches long. You can adjust the length, depending on how deep you want your pocket or how much of the bottle you wish to cover.

I folded the bottom 6 inches or so over, and machine stitched shut. Before I sewed it closed however, I used my Circle Clear Cut Punch to pop a circle in two spots: One on the bottom section of where I was folding over, to reveal a little cut out area and the second one, at the top half of my talker, so it can hang over the bottle.

If you have a look at the photos below, you can see I punched my first circle, folded the paper over and sewed it shut, then folded another bit near the top of the strip and punched another circle for the opening to go over the bottle.

The edges of the talker were again, rounded with the 3-Way Corner Rounder.

This ethnic tag from the Good Vibes Ephemera Pack was the inspiration for the embellished bottle neck. I’ve used some beautiful Amy Tangerine Washi Tapes and run them around the bottle neck, coming to a ‘V’ shape at the back. I also used some sequins which I adhered using a low temp glue gun.

I’ve used lots of ribbons and twines on bottle necks before, but never washi tape. I just love the effect and will definitely be using it again!

Gate Fold Valentine

Hey there, We R Memory Keepers friends and fans, Becki here, to share with you a card that I created using the brand new 3 Way Corner Punch. I had so much fun creating this gate fold Valentine.

 

The trim and score board is perfect for card making because you can cut and score with the same tool! No more switching tools to score. The card base for this card is 4” x 8” cut from white cardstock. After cutting the card base, I scored it at the 2” mark and the 6” mark to create the gates on the front of the card. After folding the gates into the center of the card, I rounded each of the 4 corners (with the gates folded closed) with the 10mm corner rounder. The 3 way corner punch punched through the folded cardstock perfectly.

After I had the card base create, I cut patterned paper to go on all the panels of the card. The patterned papers that go on the gates are slightly smaller than 2”x 4” and the inside panel is slightly smaller than 4” square. I used the 3 way corner rounder to round the corners of the patterned paper too. I love that the corners have the exact same radius.

When all the patterned papers were adhered to the card base, it was time for embellishments and a sentiment. I made sure that all the embellishments were adhered well so that when I send the card in the mail, they will stay securely in place. Above the “lots” portion of the sentiment I added a small piece of white cardstock so that I can add a small handwritten message with the card. I rounded the corners of the white cardstock with the 7mm corner rounder. The 10mm was perfect for the outside corners of the card but a little too round for the small piece of cardstock. I loved not having to find another tool to change the radius of the corner.

I love how this cute little card turned out and I love the ease of creating the card with just two tools. Thank you for stopping by the We R Memory Keepers blog. I’ll see you again soon!
