Today we’re thrilled to welcome Judy Marino. Before we show you Judy’s projects, let’s get to know her a little bit more…
Hello, friends! My name is Judy Marino and I am married to my high school sweetheart, mom to four awesome kids (ages 15, 14, 12 and 9), and employed as a school psychologist. While making cards is my favorite hobby, I also enjoy singing, gardening, reading, and occasional scrapbooking. Life here in New Jersey is very busy and very fun! I was introduced to rubber stamping over ten years ago when my best friend sent me a hand-made Christmas card, and I have been hooked ever since. I love clean and simple cards, and I am thrilled to be a member of the CASology design team. I also love patterned papers and enjoy making cards with some layers, too. I am so flattered to be featured here today at Paper Crafter’s Library…thank you so much for this honor!
I made two cards using a fun technique currently trending in the card-making world: die cutting with metallic paper. For both cards, I adhered silver metallic paper to heavy white cardstock, then die cut my sentiments to give them some stability. For my “Thanks” card I adhered the sentiment on top of the patterned paper base, while I inlaid the “Hugs” sentiment on the other card. The flowers, gems and butterfly add some interest while still maintaining a flat card for mailing.
