This past month, I was the happy recipient of a package from David Tutera’s Paper Crafts. I was asked to sort through the box, play with it some and then let you know about David Tutera’s Celebrate Cardmaking Line. This line is exclusive to Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores. Well, they certainly didn’t have to twist my arm. If you are familiar with me at all, you do know I love paper crafts.
And as you can see by the photo above, I went a bit crazy with some of the paper and embellishments that they sent me. After all, they did send me some high quality stuff. So a pumpkin carriage somehow created itself right before my eyes, featuring David Tutera’s fancy paper and embellishments.
But let’s talk about what the Celebrate Cardmaking line is really for…making cards! Check out the fabulous offerings!
I love to give and receive hand-made cards. It is really a very thoughtful gift. David Tutera’s Celebrate Cardmaking line is set up so that I can create a card in just minutes. Check out the boxes and packages. Everything is numbered.
Step 1- Select the size, color and finish of your card base. For this step, all boxes and packages marked “1″ are blank cards in every color, size, shape and finish that you can think of. For this card, I chose a light blue card. I then thumbed through the Step 2 layers to find a layer that I liked to add on top. Simply add some glue dots and glue it down. (Hmmm…already I’m looking at this and thinking “carriage wheels”.
Now it’s time to look through the step 3 embellishments. They sent me lots of cool stuff to work with. Some embellishments can be sanded to bring out the design. This blue circle became a beautiful patterned circle when I when over it with the sander supplied by David Tutera. And I love butterflies, so they had to be used too.
And the final addition of bling completes this card in under ten minutes time.
So, naturally I had to make some more.
…and some more. I created all of these cards in less than 45 minutes! And it only took me that long because I was having difficulty choosing what I wanted to work with. The David Tutera Celebrate Cardmaking Line made it so simple!

The pumpkin carriage? I used:
4 cardboard coasters (wheels)
1 small plastic pumpkin
1 wooden skewer cut in half
Assorted David Tutera Celebrate Cardmaking supplies
Hot glue and white glue
Poke holes in the center of each coaster and push the skewer into the hole, gluing with hot glue on both ends. Paint the insides with silver paint. Cut the door window and side windows out of the pumpkin. Using the hot glue, glue the bottom of the pumpkin to both wheel axles.
Now embellish the daylights out of it with all the cool David Tutera Celebrate cardmaking supplies! Finish with glitter and show it to your confused hubby who says, “I thought you were making cards!” Ha!
And don’t miss some of the great stuff that others are making from this wonderful paper line!
