Today I have more Hold on to Hope handmade cards to share with you. Hold on to Hope is a product bundle that was introduced in the 2018 Occasions Catalog. (You can find it here.) It’s great to use for so many different occasions!
As with the cards I shared last time, these are cards I received in a swap I participated in. I’ve credited the card creators below.
Here’s the first of my more Hold on to Hope handmade cards. It was made by Amy Petterson.
- Color Combination: Pool Party and Calypso Coral
- Background texture created with Garden Trellis Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
- The focal point for this card contains several elements grouped onto a matted square. It includes a sentiment, die cut cross and color on color background stamping. Yes, the small cross is one of the dies included in the coordinating framelit set.
Here’s the second of the more Hold on to Hope handmade cards I’m sharing. This card was made and designed by Kathy A. (she didn’t give a last name).
- The die cut elements on this card are from another favorite die set of mine….Petals & More Thinlits Dies, also found in the 2018 Occasions Catalog (page 23). These die shapes combine perfectly with the stamped sentiment from the Hold on to Hope stamp set.
- She has used a scallop die cut oval to accent the stamped sentiment.
- I like the way that vellum is used on this card. She has covered the sentiment piece using vellum, but the blue die cut accents are on top of the vellum. Placing the vellum over the Pacific Point card base tones down the intensity of the blue.
- Kathy has used sequins and adhesive pearls as accents. They really look beautiful on the card!
I shared some cards last time on my blog. You can find those Hold on to Hope handmade cards here.
Did these more Hold on to Hope handmade cards inspire you? I hope so.
