Pretty Little Studio: Document Life Cards

Saturday, January 25, 2020

Welcome to the weekend, y'all!  We're back to those home improvement projects, as last weekend, again today before having dinner, with family friends, later tonight; but I'm looking forward to relaxing and having a little time to play with my papers tomorrow.  Until then, this trio of cards, inspired by the Document Life Collection, will have to suffice.  They happen to be up on the Pretty Little Studio blog today, too.  Check 'em out!
Let's get a little up close and personal.  Shall we?
I started this card by anchoring a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of the Today print, to the white, cardstock, card face, with white-threaded, straight, machine stitching.  The "IT'S A GOOD DAY" Highlights Pocket Card had all four of its corners rounded with a 1-3/8" circle punch.  It was then backed with a Jazzy Bookmark Pennant Card, as well as a snippet of cheesecloth for texture...
laced with a length of Baker's Twine, tied in a bow through a punched hole; and popped off the surface of the card face with foam tape.
The "today" Seen & Noted Color Die Cut was popped up, with foam tape, near the bottom of the pocket card, along with a "feeling fine" Happy Day Color Sticker.  I gave a little shine and dimension to the prior with Glossy Accents.  Lots of Destination Star Die Cuts, some of which were popped up with foam tape, as well as a happy scattering of Gift Wrap, Rose Pink, and Sunsational Sequins, along with the blue sequins from the Falling Leaves Sequin Mix package and Lovely Clear Confetti, complete the look.
The second card was made in the same way as the first with only a few exceptions.  It boasts a piece of the Rosie print, anchored with white-threaded, straight, machine stitching, over the white, cardstock, card face.
The "DAILY" Highlights Pocket Card was punched and laced with Baker's twine, tied in a bow in the same way as the first...
but it had its left side punched with a notebook pattern.  A few different Destination Star Die Cuts and the same mix of sequins, as the first, were scattered throughout the design.
A "love love love" Seen & Noted Color Die Cut, popped up with foam tape in the frame provided by the pocket card and topped with a "hey friend" Happy Day Color Sticker, complete the look.
The third and final card shows off the colorful rays in the Wheely Fun print.  It, too, was anchored, with white-threaded, straight, machine stitching, to the white, cardstock, card face.
Another length of Baker's Twine was laced through a punched hole in the "LOVE THIS SO MUCH." Highlights Pocket Card...
which had also been punched, down its right side, with a bracket pattern.  It was popped up with foam tape over both a Jazzy Bookmark Pennant Card and a snippet of cheesecloth in the same way as the two cards above.  It also was embellished with the same scattering of Destination Star Die Cuts and mix of sequins.
"Here & now" and "life" Seen & Noted Color Die Cuts, popped up with foam tape, and a "so much fun" Happy Day Color Sticker complete the look.
Thanks so much for visiting!  Have an amazing weekend, friends!
