President’s Day Cards

Okay, I know that sounds weird, but I’m in charge of the challenge at the We Craft Cards Discord site this week and my challenge is inspired by our Presidents. As paper money honors presidents, the challenge is to make a mini slimline card that is close to the size of paper money and fits in the envelopes that hold money. There’s a bonus to the challenge, that if they use different sized circles, representing the coins that also honor our presidents, they get an extra entry.

Here are two examples:

These are both close to 3″ by 6″ and both have different sizes of circles, just in different ways.

Now this second one, I did in pink and black and included dragonflies to work for another challenge a friend of mine found. It’s called Paper Dragonfly Creative Challenges. This is their second challenge and is an Anything Flies (goes) with just pink and black. So, a shimmer dark pink background, black shimmer dragonflies, black embossing powder, and pink bling. This bling was called Spoonful of Confetti. I have no clue what company made it, but these are great pink holographic holeless sequins. They are wonderful! The shimmer sheets are from MFT, granted they are old, so probably retired. The top dragonfly is a Spellbinder’s die and the bottom is called Light Dragonfly from Couture Creations. The sentiment is from a Gina K set called Grand Garden.

Thank you for spending some of your valuable time with me today! Have a wonderful weekend.

  1. Beautiful cards Golda. I love them both but find the first one really interesting with the background you created. Those dragonflies are lovely too.

    1. Thanks Gerry. The second one was a fun color combo to use. I’m glad Gayle and Johanna participated in that challenge, which encouraged me to check it out.
