Going for Gold


One of the biggest things that cardmakers battle is the idea that the recipient of the card will be throwing it away. I hide my eyes and cringe at the thought but we all know it happens.

With both of those things in mind, gold medals and sustainable greeting cards, I created this “I'm a Fan” card:


I used some of Tombow's Craft Collection Adhesive to make this card “live on”. I created the “medal” with Tombow's 3D Foam Tabs and attached it to the card with Tombow's Fastener Tabs. 



This type of card can be created for a teacher, great student, or star athlete — just change the image on the “medal” to match the theme. Check out the full instructions on the Tombow USA Blog Here: http://blog.tombowusa.com/2012/08/08/im-a-fan-olympic-week-with-jennifer-priest/

It started with jewelry, beading, sewing, home decor, painting, basket weaving, pottery, and cross-stitch. Marry that to an entrepreneurial spirit & at 9 years old a girl is selling her wares at craft fairs as far as her parents and grandparents would drive her. These days, Jennifer enjoys crafts of all genres from sewing to scrapbooking to jewelry with a little dabbling in the mixed media world. Her style is approachable and she wants everyone who sees her work to feel that they too can embrace creativity and make their home and life beautiful.
