First cards for first AAA Card challenge

I've got a couple of fun cards today with lots of glitter and happiness!

My first card is in graphic style. I love bright loud cards! Crafting one that's also nearly CAS is a blast!
This is a 2 layer card. My background is fully glitttered over a bright sun ray, yeah for glue spray! I printed
the 3 main factors to the card. I located the boy from Yahoo Images while searching under "vintage children
advertising". Love him! I'm gonna keep that in my graphics file for sure! The sun ray is an older file of mine
and I created the sentiment bubble too. The oreo filling is also glittered.

My second card is smaller and more subdued. I like tiny cards, their just SO cute!  There's piercing on the main body and the embellishment is 2 layered itself. The sentiment is one of my "vicki stamps" from my set called "Happy Joy". The washi tape is taped to cardstock and cut out to behave like a prize ribbon. Again, I've glittered over the entire sentiment, I really like that effect. Pop tape is used to create the layering.


AAA Cards opened this morning for our first game. Fingers crossed and happy thoughts. Our first game is "Triple Play". Make a card with "2 Layers, Happy and Glitter!" Triple play allows you to make any CAS style card you enjoy with 3 fun elements. I hope you drop by and play too!

  1. I'm looking for a link in your post to get to AAA Cards but can't find one. :-( Is the new challenge going to be listed over at Paper Playful or one of the other challenge listing sites? Would love to create something to play along. :-D

  2. Love how you create such cool cards with your computer. Great way to hybrid things. Just great how the first card is bold and bright!

    The second card is just lovely with the Washi strips. Very creative.
