You might remember a few weeks ago when I posted a video about the new David Tutera Celebrate
line that’s available (exclusively) at Jo Ann’s
? I’m so excited to post today about what I made with products from this fun new line of cardmaking and paper products.
This line is perfect for the novice or seasoned cardmaker. It requires no tools beyond adhesive and your imagination and takes no time at all to whip up a card that looks like it took hours and cost a fortune.
The Celebrate line is literally as easy as 1, 2, 3 which is how each of the components are labeled.
1.) The Card. Cards come in 4 x 5.5 or 5x7 and come in everything from plain white to metallic to natural and several colors.
2.) Layers sized to match you card. These are wonderful for those who may not have a fancy die cutting or embossing machine because the work is already done for you.
3.) Accents. These include borders, tags, layered sentiment stickers, rhinestones and smaller diecuts.
For the birthday card above I used a metallic silver 5x7 card (Step 1), a grey layer with scrolled edges and a center cutout, along with a white embossed layer underneath ( Step 2) , some borders, birthday sentiment, and small diecuts ( Step 3). 1.2.3.
One of the things included in my package was this sanding block . His line uses papers by Core’dinations, one of my favorite papers to use in cards and other projects. When you sand the papers you reveal some of the color underneath and it completely changes the texture and appearance of your piece.
I love the shabbied up look after sanding and my supplies also included a wonderful rag that wipes up all of the dust without affecting the paper.
I cut two of the borders the width of the grey layer and adhered with a glue dots runner.
The borders are already textured for you so you there’s no dry embossing required.
I chose one of the layered birthday sentiment stickers, and placed it in the window of the grey layer and then finished off with a coordinating layered flower:
This card took me 10 minutes or less to make. Seriously. I think you’ll take longer deciding which combination of card, layers, and embellishments to use than to actually make the card. It’s so easy.
I had so much fun with it, I whipped up a Thank You card as well.
Again, 1. Card 2. Layers 3. Embellishments.
I don’t ever want to hear from anyone that they can’t make a card. Thanks to this line I’ll have to call fibs on you.
