Goodness, Hello

Hi Chic Tags fans! Mandy Koeppen here today with some card inspiration for you. 

Summer break is finally here for our family and for us Summer means lots of things besides sleeping in, swimming, and vacation. The nice Summer weather means more events to attend there's: Graduation, Open Houses, Weddings,Bridal Showers, Well Wishes for College, Anniversaries, Baby Showers, Reunions, and more. We need cards for all these events. If you're anything like me the quick and easy cards are the best right? YES! I will admit these cards were all made in less than an hour with a bad arm and the help of an 8 year old.  So if this gal and her trusty sidekick can create these you can too!

First we have a simple card that I would be happy to give to the Bride or Expecting Momma.

Goodness Card Products Used: Cloud9 "Sunday Best" Pattern Paper with Gold Foil, Cloud 9 "Goodness" Pattern Paper with Gold Foil ,Cloud 9 "Lovely'" Pattern Paper, Cloud9 Mini Icons, Cloud9 Label Stickers, Cloud9 "Goodness" Veneer 

The gold "Sunday Best" patten paper is my favorite and makes this card just beautiful! I added dimension with some foam adhesive squares. I also used Cloud 9 Mini Icons. Goodness does it get better than the veneer? Love that and it fits perfectly on the Chic Tags Cloud 9 label stickers.

Enjoy is a great card for the Grad or a friend traveling somewhere fun. 

Enjoy Card Products Used: Let's Go "Captured" Pattern Paper, Let's Go Cards, Let's GO Mini Tags, Let's Go Tabs, Other: Tiny attacher, OA alpha stickers, Foam Squares 

I love all those Let's Go Tabs that I used on the left side of the card. I also used the Let's Go Cards & Mini Tags. To give all the layers dimension i used foam squares at the end of some of the tabs and under the "ticket". I also hand scribbled a few lines across the yellow card. 

And then there are those moments in-between the events when you just want to brighten someones day so you send a Hello card like this. 

HELLO Card Products Used:Cloud 9 "Goodness" Pattern Paper, Cloud 9 Squares,Let's Go "Places" Wood Veneer, Let's Go "Destination" Pattern Paper",Let's Go Label Stickers,Other- Tag, OA Alpha Sticker

Simple right? Yes. Created with leftovers from other projects. It also shows that you can mix and match those Chic Tag scraps from different lines too! love that! The Let's Go line has those bright fun summery colors so you don't just have to use it just for travel. The yellow from the Let's Go "Destinations" Pattern Paper mixed with the  Let's Go Label, and the Sunshine Veneer are perfect to brighten anyones day.  Would it brighten your day to find it? 

Thanks for joining me today!
