1992 Recovery Lane – World Card Making Day!

I am excited and honored to be participating in a World Card Making Day event today. I made a video that is part of a YouTube hop, and we all picked a “diversity” related topic. My diversity topic is Recovery, and my card uses the AA circle and triangle symbol to help the recipient celebrate an important milestone.

Here are the specific instructions for the card. Watch the video for a step-by-step overview, including tips on adding texture to make the Warm Welcome bundle look like a real-life door. As an added bonus there are an additional 10 Recovery card samples quickly shown at the end of the video.

ps – this idea could very easily extend to celebrating other milestones too.

  2. Cut Card Inside Basic White 4” x 5 ¼”, and adhere to inside
  3. Cut Card Layer So Saffron 4” x 5 ¼”, and adhere to front of card

Tips for adding texture to the Warm Welcome bundle

  1. Die-Cut wallpaper in So Saffron pattern from Forest Friends Designer Series Paper Pack.
  2. Center and adhere door to card front. Make sure the door itself goes over the Basic Black brick layer. Also make sure you leave an opening on the door frame to tuck the arm under on the right center of the door frame.
  3. Adhere the So Saffron wallpaper, centered in the door opening.
  4. Stamp and Die-Cut arm with bouquet from Warm Welcome Bundle. Color with Blends: Fresh Freesia, Highland Heather, Crumb Cake, Old Olive, SU800. Place a mini Stampin’ Dimensional under the bouquet. Arrange the bouquet in a pleasing manner, remembering to tuck the arm under the right side of the door frame. Adhere bouquet.
  5. Die-Cut address numbers from Basic Black, and address-sign from Basic White.
  6. Adhere numbers to address-sign with tiny dots of glue, placing numbers in a pleasing manner.
  7. Punch Circle and Triangle in Basic Black and Silver (use tools you have on hand). Adhere triangle to center of circle. Add address-label to top of door with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Add Circle and Triangle to top of door with Stampin’ Dimensional.
  8. Fussy-cut stamped dog image. Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensional on bricks and in front of the cactus.
  9. Sprinkle on the gems. Add a silver door knob, and add matching gems on the flowers in the bouquet.
