Hi there! Karla here today with a set of motivational cards to get you moving and excited about life! Since our theme here on the SMS blog this month is ‘Take Us Back June’ we’ve been thinking up lots of retro inspiration for you – and these cute workout animals from Pretty Cute Stamps wearing their adorable headbands totally brought me back to the ’20 Minute Workout’ videos of the 80’s! I’m pretty sure my sister and I wore our own headbands and bodysuits while we worked out in front of the TV 😉 I thought the sentiments included in the set were perfect to create a trio of cards that would be great to give to anyone who is working hard on something.
I recently found this fun retro paper pad at Michaels and thought the images would be awesome for this month’s theme! How cool is this cassette?! After I added layers of paper and some shiny washi tape on each card, I used a button and some of the wonderful Raspberry Burlap String from the SpiegelMom Scraps shop as well as a cork star from the Shooting Cork Stars package.
I stamped these cuties on watercolor paper and used some Mermaid Markers from Jane Davenport and Prima Watercolor Pencils to colour them in while the kids were playing in the park. I had so much fun creating these, and I hope whoever receives them will feel like they can accomplish whatever they want!
Here’s a look at the inside of each card and the fun and motivational message that coordinates with the front! Of course I had to add some gorgeous sequins inside too!
