I chose to share the newest Make It from Your Heart, Vol. 4 how-to book for making cards. The pages are printed on very heavy cardstock. I placed mine in one of the Everyday Life notebooks I had previously ordered.
Each pattern on the left includes measurements of each panel for a 4.25" x 5.5" card. The opposite page on the right shows two sample cards using the pattern.
What I loved was that the patterns are basic and open for adding any variety of sentiments, stamped images, and embellishments. I like to add clusters of these to finish my cards. Here's what the background looks like for pattern #7 that I used.
Here are three samples showing variations in clustering as I finished each card using the same pattern base. I only used the following colors from the Color My Heart Color Dare #275:
Both of these versions use the stamps from Chelsea Gardens Cardmaking Stamp and Thin Cuts die set.
The third card uses another new stamp set, He Is the Way. The Bashful colored paper on the sides is a new one from the paper pack, Make Waves.
Now you are ready to see what Wendy Kessler has created for you!
