Easy Card Making System

In today's technical era of texting and emailing, handmade cards mean so much to me. I know that the person who made the card put extra time and energy into making that card. I like making homemade cards so that the people I give the cards to will know the same.

But sometimes card making can be overwhelming! The new David Tutera Celebrate Card Making System makes card making as easy as 1-2-3!

Let me explain............

Step 1 is to choose a blank card. 
The cards come in a variety of sizes and colors. 

Step 2 is to choose a layer.
The layers are probably my favorite part of this line! They are amazing! Some of the layers are embossed, die cut, glittered, etc. 

Step 3 is to choose an embellishment or multiple embellishments. 
There are various color coordinated stickers, die cut, rhinestones, tags, etc. that compliment the layers and cards beautifully. 

So let me show you how I made my beautiful congratulations card.

I started with a blank card that has a little bit of shimmer and sheen to it. I chose to use 2 layers; the congratulations layer and then a sheen pink layer. I really love the shape of the congratulations layer. 
I cut the pink layer so that I would just have a little bit to show behind the word congratulations and then I adhered it to the congratulations layer using glue dots. 

I then centered the congratulations layer onto my card and adhered it to the card using glue dots. 

Next, I chose to use the "you're engaged" sticker and wanted to make the sticker pop by backing it with the same cardstock from the pink layer.
 So I cut a piece of cardstock from the layer that was slightly bigger than the sticker, stuck the sticker on the cut cardstock, and adhered it to the card using glue dots.

Lastly, I added two rhinestones to just to give it a little bling. 

And it's finished! Beautiful yet simple and classy! 

And making that card got me in the mood to do a little more card making! Here are a couple of more cards I made.

Fall Card
This card features a favorite fall photo of mine. I added the lacy layer on top of the photo.
