I needed to make 3 cards that are pretty much the same, as invites. Needed to get it done on Tuesday, to get them in Wednesday’s mail, but I failed. Didn’t actually get them done until today, when I found a sheet of paper that I thought would work.
I could have made 6 plus cards from this one sheet of 12×12 paper, but I only needed 3, so I have some left.
I cut off the fun scalloped edge and figured I would use that on the cards, but wound up not using it. So, I cut three pieces of the dotted card at 4″ x 5-1/4″. Put that on my 3 pieces of 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″ bases.
I also found some brown and yellow flowers that seemed to go well with the patterned card. Added 2 on the outside and a small one inside each card. Also cut out “hello” from a bit of scrap, white card.
Simple cards, that went together fairly quickly, after I found the paper to use.
Here’s another one I made this week, that was a back-to-school card. Had a lot of fun with it, though it was a ton of work. So, just wanted to show it to you and give you a brief description.
Cut 2 circles, 1 in white and 1 in brown light weight card (or heavy weight paper). Cut a bunch of 2 different colors of twine. Untwisted all of the twine, then glued (liquid adhesive) the ends to the white circle. Then glued the brown circle on top of that. Now, when I gathered the “hair” into the pony and tied the bow on it, I found that the circles were just too big, so I cut it down to more of an oval. Before I adhered the “head” piece to the base card, I stamped flowers in different shades of pink and stamped my sentiment in black. Then, adhered the “head” and trimmed my “hair” even with the bottom of the card. After that, I stamped some pencils and colored those with colored pencils. After cutting them out, I tucked them into the “hair”, like you sometimes see little kids do with pencils (or their teachers). This one is definitely fun, but oh so messy. The twine made a huge mess, as well as being itchy.
Thanks for spending some time with me today! Go have a marvelous rest of the day.
