One of the many things on my very large to-do list is to make Thank You Cards for all the wonderful Cross-Promotional products I received at the Spellbinders design retreat. Well I am definitely not off to a fast start but I did finish a couple. Here is one of the cards I finished this weekend.
This card is a 5 1/4" square card. I love that size of card because there is lots of room to add all those pretty embellishments! The base of this card is some Kraft cardstock cut to 5 1/4" x 10 1/2" and scored at 5 1/4". For the bottom layer, I cut some Posh Milk Chocolate Felt Cardstock into a 5" square. For the next layer, I ran some Peach Smooth cardstock thru my Grand Calibur® using ES-005 Enchanted M-Bossabilities™. The M-Bossabilities™ give such a deep embossing detail. I love it! The patterned paper is Reunion from These Days Collection by KaiserCraft. I cut/embossed the patterned paper using S4-237 Labels Twenty-Three #4 (remember #1 is the smallest in the set). I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of Simply Smooth Ivory using Rich Cocoa Memento ink and cut/embossed it from S4-237 Labels Twenty Three #2. I added some pearls from Want2Scrap. Using E8-003 Classic Triple Scallop Edgeabilities®, I cut/embossed a strip of the reverse side of the patterned paper from Kaisercraft. Once I had all these pieces I went ahead and assembled the card but realized it need something more. So I got out my favorite S5-086 Bitty Blossoms to makes some really pretty flowers.
Here is a close-up of my flowers.
I added the ribbon and tied a bow then glued my flowers into place. I won't be able to mail this card in a regular envelope. I will probably put it into one of those jiffy padded envelopes. It will take more postage but this card is worth it, don't you think? LOL
Hope you have a wonderful week! I will be busy creating in my craft room. My first projects for Spellbinders will be due at the end of the month. Plus I will have some fun news to share at the end of the month, too!! Talk to you soon!
