Now let's get creative with these products! BPC member, Davean (Davean) is joining us to share a two beautiful cards and a gorgeous layout with some very creative ideas!

Who doesn’t need tons of thank you cards after the holidays? I made this quick, simple card using three pieces of the Big Picture Washi Tape, a tag from Amy Tangerine’s Ticket Memo Pad and a cut file from the Silhouette Cameo. First, I staggered the 3 washi tape strips, then I trimmed off the tag and rounded the other two corners (the bottom corners are already rounded). I also rounded the corners of the card to make it look similar to the tag. Then I cut the "thanks" from Dear Lizzy’s 5th & Frolic paper pad, using paper that matched the flower. I added a few sequins (Dollar Tree) for a little pop of extra color.

It is too warm here for a real snowman, but I can still enjoy making a snowman card! I stamped the snowy background and also the words "let it snow" using the Lawn Fawn stamps, which stamped perfectly. The snowman is a Studio G stamp. I colored in his hat, nose and buttons with colored pencils. The snowflake paper is October Afternoon, Holiday Style collection and I trimmed the ovals, punched the flakes and the bottom piece from that. I added another smaller punched snowflake on top of the bigger ones, plus sequins for the middle. I pop-dotted the snowman piece for more depth. I plan to use this card for either a thank you or birthday card.

For this page, I wanted to use one of the Dear Lizzy Minc Tags, but I do not have the Minc Machine or the foil. I decided to just use the "XO XO XO" tag as is and I love that you can use these without the foil too! The Mini Olive You letter stickers by Illustrates Faith were perfect for part of my title. I then punched part of the woodgrain tag from Amy Tangerine’s Ticket Memo Pad and added torn pieces of the Big Picture Washi Tape. I also punched a smaller piece to frame the word "sweet". The rest of the papers were Cloud9 Design and the top green tag was an older SEI punch out tag - Kitty’s Place.

      Thanks so much @HannahBrown98!! I thought about running out and buying some foil or the machine, but decided I just needed to use it "as is". LOL!
