The card I made was for our Scout Leader who has done so much for our Scout Group during the lock-down stages within Western Australia. When we went back to Face-to-Face Scouting our Support Committee suggested a card to show our appreciation and our Scout Group Leader (my husband) commissioned me to make one... and by commissioned I mean "asked nicely for me to voluntarily make a card for no reimbursement". I was most happy to add my card making skills to gift this leader who has worked so hard for our youth.
I used the Aurora Paper Packet + Sticker Sheet plus the Aurora Cardmaking Kit (since sold out) with the banner and world thin cuts cut with Glacier Cardstock, Peacock Cardstock and
To adhere the globe to the circle thin cut, I used Dual-tip Permanent Glue Pen and then the rest I used either with some height mixture of 3-D Foam Tape &
The Title "You're the Best" is from June's Stamp of the Month and the "You Mean the World to me" stamp was from the Aurora Cardmaking stamp set. I masked the "me" off and used an alphabet stamp to add the word "US" to the end as it came from the group so I needed it to say "You mean the world to us!". I added the blue and peacock paper from the Aurora Paper Packet + Sticker Sheet and then added some white Shimmer trim (this is retired but you can still get silver Shimmer Trim which would have also worked on this card). I cut the white shimmer trim in half with my Aluminum Cut Rail Paper Trimmer. To cut shimmer trim I acutally stuck it to the trimmer and then peeled it off again. You can see I didn't cut perfectly in half so I put the larger half on the bottom and the smaller half on the top to show the weighting.
All stuck onto a White Cards & Envelopes Value Pack card.
