Card Trends

Remember back in the day when we used to use decorative scissors or cut our photos into star and heart shapes?!

Some trends come and go and others make it full circle! Even though you don't see many photos in the shape of a heart these days, hearts are one of our design teams favorite trends!

Don't miss a look at a trend we haven't seen this week, GOLD!

Made with Love Card by Kaori Fujimoto

I choose a doily and wood as the trends to use on my card. The reason I like a doily and wood is they give a soft and natural impression. I also think that the doily and wood suits the Pincushion collection very well.

I love watercolor, and I could not stop using this trend. On this card, I used doilies, gold and hearts. I applied a little acrylic gesso and I cleaned it with a baby wipe. After I used watercolor and I spilled some water on it. I applied golden paste on the butterfly's resin.

Love Card by Ulrika Wandler

I love feathers, but I haven't used them as much as I wanted to. Now when I got the chance, I paired them with wood and gold. And a piece of the cool Zip-A-Dee Doodle paper. I have used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the feathers and the frame.
