Season's Givings Image

I have a super quick and easy card to share today. CHA preparations are in full swing, the boys are home from school and craziness rules! It’s good to sit down and work out the crazies with crafting, isn’t it?

You and Me card by Beth Pingry

I die cut papers from the Basic Grey RSVP collection with A Jillian Vance Design dies. I stamped with the sentiment, then added Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®’s 3D Foam Hearts. The back side of the pink die cuts have 3D Foam Squares, so there is some dimension to this card.


I pulled lace through the two Ribbon Banner die cuts. The 3D Foam Hearts are embellished with pink pigment powder for a nice shimmery look. I sanded the die cuts to show off the embossing better, these dies have great detail!


Here you can see the lift from the 3D Foam Squares. Easy peasy, right?

Disclosure: I am on the design teams for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® and A Jillian Vance Design and have received products to use for blog posts.

Supply List:

  • Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®: 3D Foam Hearts, 3D Foam Squares White Regular, E-Z Runner®
  • A Jillian Vance Design: Polka Dot Circle die, Ribbon Labels die, True Love stamp,
  • Basic Grey: RSVP paper collection
  • May Arts Ribbon: White Lace
  • Clearsnap: Donna Salazar Mix’d Media Black Inkx

My giveaway is over $25 in Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® products!

I loved your card and am off to check out your hubby’s APP. I need something to help me keep track of my supplies and this sounds like it will be great, thanks for sharing it. Happy New Year everyone, hope it is a great one for all of us.
