They are especially great for birthday cards when you want to include a specific number! Here is a card that I created for my mom’s 94th birthday. I cut the numbers from the Rich Razzleberry Cardstock and then added the Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper to the back.
One great benefit of cutting numbers from either cardstock or DSP is that you can use the cutouts for another card. In this case, I took the numbers from my mom’s birthday card and combined them with the Party Panda set to make an adorable birthday card.
Another example of using the large numbers is to cut them out of a 4″ x 5 1/4″ DSP piece. Then you adhere it to a card base that coordinates with your DSP. I also added an extra strip at the bottom just to tie the card together.
The Large Letter Framelits can be used to make similar cards. Just a tip: on a standard size card base, you can fit 4 letters (or letter/number combo). So you might think of 4 letter greetings like HB2U, baby, hope, kiss, love, snow, noel and so many more!
Another technique when creating the words is to layer the cardstock and DSP before cutting your letters. Then when you make your second card, you’ll add the bottom cut outs to get a cute layered look to your card.
Tim’s project for this week was to personalize his journal using the Large Letter Framelits. He chose to use his initials – TWT – and adhere them to the front of his new journal. You can create quick custom journals that make great presents for your family and friends!
Eclipse cards are one very popular use for the Large Letter / Large Number Framelits. There are many ways to create these cards but I showed one quick and easy method. I cut the XO from the Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper. I also cut 4 additional X’s and O’s from white cardstock. Gluing them all together helps create that popped up, layered effect. I then attached them to my card just a little offset from where the original cutout was.
