November Greetings to Go Guest Artist

Karen Wyngaard

Our November Guest Artist is Terri Zwicker. Terri made the Moroccan Spice Greetings to Go cards her own by scoring some of the cards differently from the instructions. She further embellished her cards with die cuts, embossing folders, Glossy Accents, gesso, glitter glue and more. Are you ready for the tour? IMG_3400 copy SET A: 4¼x5½” GOLD CARDS IMG_3401 copy It's amazing with a little work with a craft knife, glitter glue and faux gems can do for a card. Terri's shaker card is a great example. IMG_3403 copy IMG_3404 copy For a little something different, stamp the background stamp with gesso. IMG_3405 copy IMG_3407 copy This embossed panel has a clever pocket for holding the sentiment. IMG_3409 copy The fussy-cut Cutapart is covered in Glossy Accents and edged in glitter for added dimension. IMG_3410 copy IMG_3389 copy SET B: 5x7” BROWN CARDS IMG_3390 copy Another gesso stamped background. IMG_3391 copy Layer the front panel with ribbons and sequins attached with brads. IMG_3393 copy Make the sentiment really pop with a dimensional adhesive like our Foam Circles. IMG_3398 copy IMG_3399 copy IMG_3396 copy An intricate die cut dresses up this "gate" folded card. IMG_3397 copy IMG_3681 copy A bit of Glossy Accents on the printed tiles adds interest and really makes them stand out. IMG_3395 copy IMG_3413 copy SET C: 3½x5” GREEN EASEL CARDS IMG_3415 copy Add a dimensional focal point with a die cut rosette. IMG_3421 copy An easel card can be scored a bit differently to create a pocket inside that accommodates a gift card. IMG_3416 copy IMG_3418 copy A die cut and embossed metal flower adds a dressy touch to this card. IMG_3419 copy IMG_3417 copy Use an open die cut and add patterned paper behind select sections for a graphic touch. IMG_3420 copy IMG_3424 copy IMG_3423 copy Use a craft knife to fussy cut a "window" in the artwork. I hope Terri's cards have inspired you to take your Greetings to Go to the next level!
