Hi Amber fans! It’s Katrina from Paper, Scissors and Glue sharing some quick hybrid cards today with the the Golden kit. And bonus, it’s the featured collection for October, so you can get those fall cards made with the fabulousness of the collection on sale and a chance to win $10 store credit by making a page also! See details at the end of my post.
Now, I did these cards with some leftovers I had from another project using Golden. I keep all my hybrid leftovers, because you never know when they will come in handy! This card is a 4.5 x 4.5 inch square card to give you an idea of the dimensions. Not the most “mailing friendly” size, but a good size to give in person, or put in a package of fall goodies to a friend!
I used the print and cut feature on my Silhouette Cameo for the leaf and the “golden days”. The “golden days” element is actually all one piece, but I just snipped it in half and rounded those edges to make it fit on my card! Add some enamel dots and ribbon, boom you have a cute little card to hand out. PS…I LOVE ribbon! LOL Every card should have some sort of ribbon or twine!
My next card is mailing friendly, it’s a 5.5 x 4.25 inches, so an 8.5 x 11 sheet cut in half and then folded (you get two card bases out of a sheet). Trust me, it’s taken me years to get that thru my head! I like the square cards too much!
This card also has a lot less dimension to it, which would make it easier to mail also. Again, I used my Silhouette with print and cut, but you could easily cut these by hand. I added half a doily and then some twine tied at the top. Really fine jute twine is perfect for cards and layouts without a lot of added bulk.
Fall is my second favorite season, Winter is my first! But when fall arrives I get in such a good mood I have to spread it around. And a handmade card is perfect to do that.
Now, you could also take my cards and make a digital card with them by just layering your pieces and printing out! But don’t be scared of hybrid, it’s kind of fun to play with paper and scissors!!! Happy Fall!!!
