Folklore Die - Fast and Slow


This first card was a snap to make - 

  • Die cut the beautiful Folklore Die (along with the circle die that comes with it) from A Pocket Full of Happiness twice and adhered together. 
  • Ink blended white cardstock and adhered the white die cut with foam tape onto the ink blended cardstock. 
  • Adhered that to aqua cardstock.
  • Adhered to a square white card.
  • Added gems.
Lots of adhering! I used Bearly Arts Glue, which is the only glue I use now. Keep the pin in the top and it doesn't ever clog. Lasts forever! 

The second card took a lot longer, but I enjoyed making it.

  • Trim navy cardstock to A2 size.
  • Die cut with Folklore Die without using the circle die.
  • Adhere to a white piece of cardstock.
  • Die cut repeatedly in 2 shades of yellow, white, and light blue. 
  • Glue every little piece into the appropriate slot.
  • Die cut to make up for the little pieces that got lost in the process and to have doubles on the dark yellow.
  • Add gems.
  • Adhere to A2 white card.
  • Die cut sentiment that is part of the set. Adhere.

Fast and slow both have their places. 

MOOD WHEN DONE: We start packing tomorrow for our 3rd move in 4 years but that's ok. I think.

Awesome cards! Love that 2nd one. Curious why you are moving again - more power to you! 😀

I love the look of both cards. There are some tiny parts for piecing, but sometimes it's rather therapeutic. I'm fond of the folk art look. Three moves in 4 years is a lot, but if it's okay with you... I remember your first move from the house to the apartment before Texas. That must have been more than 4 years ago. Does time really fly that fast? Sheesh!

Fabulous die and your cards show it off so well. Kudos to all the paper piecing! It beats packing though, doesn't it?
