I was asked by a customer recently whether the World of Good Memories and More card packs could be used for cardmaking as well as scrapbooking/memory keeping. The answer is absolutely YES and I am here to show you how. Whilst these aren’t available for another two weeks I thought I would wet your appetite with a little sneak peak, and if you want to have a go using different Memories and More packs you can find the links at the bottom of the page.
I have made three different yet co-ordinating cards all on the same theme, ranging from fairly simple to fairly complex. Each one amazing in it’s own right.
You get 50 cards in a pack, for just £10.25 and they come in two sizes, one 4″ x 6″ and one 3″ x 4″. The larger ones need trimming slightly to fit a standard C6 card base but this leaves you a perfect strip to pop inside your cards to co-ordinate. This pack comes with the most gorgeous foiled cards and some stunning sticker sheets, perfect for what I wanted to do here.
I would say that this is the most simple of the cards. I took one of the larger cards, cut it down to size, using Misty Moonlight for my card base. On top of it, horizontally, I stuck one of the smaller cards. I used some very thin strips of the brass foil and butted them up against this smaller card. I didn’t want to waste any so I didn’t use a full mat. To finish I simply ‘fish-tailed’ a scrap of white card and placed one of the bronze foiled stickers on it. A beautiful card in under 5 minutes!
Don’t you just love the telepscope! I knew I wanted to use this as soon as I saw it and it really goes well with the sentiment that I have used here. Again I have used a base of Misty Moonlight, with one of the large cards trimmed and placed on the front. This card had a blank journalling space on it but I filled it with the small card with the telescope on it. I did have to trim this down slightly but you don’t lose any of the image which is great.
The sentiment is from another small card, I just trimmed it down so I was left with the words and then matted each of these lines onto some more Misty Moonlight card. I used dimensionals to lift these off the page and added to the card along with some more of the brass foiled stickers. Quick and easy yet incredibly stylish.
The background for this final card is actually the World of Good DSP, but you could easily use on of the larger cards from the World of Good Memories and More cards instead. The focal point is one of the smaller cards mounted onto some Misty Moonlight and the foiling is again from the sticker sheets. The greeting was a little more intricate to cut this time but I am quite fond of fussy cutting so this suited me well. It is from one of the smaller cards again, there really are some fabulous sayings and phrases in this set. The greeting is popped up on dimensionals to make it pop from the background.
I really enjoyed using a fairly monotone colour scheme and think these cards really go nicely as a trio. It almost seems a shame to split them up for sending!
I hope that I have shown you here that the World of Good Memories and More card pack is great for cardmaking, the possibilities are endless and your cards are only limited by your imagination.
I can’t wait until the catalogue goes live on the 3rd June, not long to wait now folks…
