Cosmo Cards

No scrap of Cosmo goes to waste...all can be utilized in a card! Hope you find some inspiration below! This post shares some examples of cards made with Cosmo Cricket collections. As I share new cards, I will edit and add them into this blog post, so you can always click on "Cards" to find card inspiration. (That is, until I figure out how to do a "category" in my sidebar.)

Happy birthday greetings to brighten anyone's day!

Buttons and red felt were used to mimic the patterned paper design and create an embellishment.

Wednesday I am meeting a girlfriend I haven't seen in a LONG time for coffee. Seeing the cute coffee cups in the Early Bird collection, I created a card to send her after our get together - just to thank her for meeting with me and to say, "hey, let's do that again!"

I couldn't resist spritzing Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Latte on the green flower. I punched a circle and distressed the edges, and added the coffee cup chipboard shape. Cute as can be, don't you think?

A bright, cheerful card to celebrate a birthday!

An elegant gatefold card - a Fiskars Upper Crest border punch creates a defined edge. A journaling card is used for the sentiment, and crosses over the center and tucks into a slit created on the left side of the card for closure.

For the cowboy
, or really cool guy in your life! I love to distress, tear and crumple two-sided papers!

A joyful Christmas card - actually made from scraps on my table. (LOL)

An extra special Christmas card with stitching and details for Santa's favorite on the card list.

For the boy in your life that loves to figure out how things work!

Magistical Memories "Potty Man" and "Tab" were combined to create a chipboard robot. A piece of glass from Heidi Grace Designs was used behind the tab for a visor effect.

Foam adhesive squares give a "working effect" to the gears - shapes cut from Cosmo Cricket patterned paper and Magistical Memories chipboard pieces.
