Momenta Cards

Hi friends!  I have two cards on the Momenta blog today.  The first is a bracket-shaped thank you card using the pretty Butterfly Garden collection.

A machine isn't needed to make a shaped card if you are willing to trace and hand-cut.  If you come across a shape that you like (from a collection kit, from packaging, printed from the internet, etc.) hang on to it so that you can use it as a template.  That is what I did here.  I have a handful of templates that I like to trace around for cards and borders and such but I found this particular bracket shape from the incredibly talented Karola Witczak.  For this card I layered several different pieces of the Butterfly Garden patterned cardstock as well as some border-punched white cardstock before cutting them into the bracket shape.

Next is a birthday card using the fun Let's Party collection.

Square cards are another favorite of mine.  This one is 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 and based on a Mojo Monday sketch (see below).  I added some liquid pearls and some glitter glue to the super cute layered embellishments to help them stand out even more.  Momenta's vellum message stickers are perfect for card sentiments.
