Don’t forget to reach out to those women in your life that make every day special for you!
Today we have a beautiful card from Designer Kerri Smith using the David Tutera Celebrate Cardmaking system. The great thing about this system is cards take only minutes. AND this sentiment, “for you with love”, from Step 3 is so versatile. You could make this card and have it ready to go, adding the sticker sentiment at the last minute depending on the occasion. BUT since we are celebrating mom’s Designer Kerri Smith used the mother’s day sentiment from the white and black stickers.
We can’t wait to see what you create with this fabulous system.
Remember to share those creations on the David Tutera Celebrate Cardmaking system FACEBOOK page!
The great thing about the David Tutera Celebrate Cardmaking system is it’s versatility. Basicall you can swap ideas that you see here with any of the sentiments OR just make a “You’re Special” card and keep it on hand for any occasion that arises.
Designer Margie Higuchi created this example for us today.
Here are a few tips:
1.) Use the die cut shapes on the Step Two layers to match and place your sentiment.
2.) Mix and match the Step 3 pearls from other packs. These pink pearls are found in the Butterfly 2 Shapes & Cupcake Shapes both of which were not used on this card.
Have a beautiful day!
They are SO CLOSE to 2000 LIKES! Let’s help them. PLUS, you won’t miss out on the beautiful inspiration pieces like this that they feature over there on a daily basis.
And another gorgeous card for Mother’s Day or any occasion….Just swap the sentiment!
And a detail…just love how Shaunte used the inside die cut piece of this step two layer to make a little window box!

AND our DESIGN TEAM CALL posted this week! Not sure if you know this but we have a Hot Topics section on our homepage right underneath the flash images (the images that rotate of the new products). We can tag things from our blog and other areas of the site there so that the important stuff stays in one place. Like contests, challenges, giveaways and, of course, Design Team calls!
We are here with some inspiration from our David Tutera Design Team. These talented women have been working hard the last few weeks! Make sure you check out our David Tutera Celebrate Cardmaking system that is available exclusively at JoAnn Fabric and Craft stores.
The great thing about this cardmaking line is that you can make easy cards in minutes or you can add your own personal touch like Designer Trine-Brandt Lassen did for us here. Sunbursts are a hot ticket on layouts and cards right now and the Step 2 layers make it easy to create your own. Since it is already cut to fit the cardbase, all you need to do is cut your strips for the sunburst!
And … notice how Trine used the backside of the large dot layer?
And Designer Shaunte Wadley created this stunning A7 card that is full of bright colors and tons of layers. Sand them, cut them, stitch them and make them your own!
So much fun, don’t you think???
And for all of our Canadian friends, Happy Thanksgiving weekend!
