New cards





Well I found the cutest card design whilst blog browsing the other week and just had to give it a try. Credit for the design of these cards goes to Michelle of Mish Mash -: http://michellewooderson.blogspot.com
Go and have a look at her blog; she makes some really awesome cards.

For my cards, I've cut out Vanilla Cardstock to measure 10.5cm x 21cm and then folded to make the square. I've varied the top of the card using circles, squares and rectangles. To make sure it fits into a standard size envelope, I've laid the card over the envelope, with the topper in place to measure and then attached the 'topper'.
Stamp sets: Delight in Life, Bugs & Kisses, Lexicons of Love, Warm Words.
Cardstock: Certain Celery, Barely Banana, Buckaroo Blue, Bordering Blue, Marigold Morning
Patterned Paper: Sarah (so wonderful to work with and matches up nicely to the above colours) I had alot of fun making these cards and think they will be very cute for a gift; my reason for colour co-ordinating them altogether.
If there is anything you would like to know about these cards, I will be happy to share.

Hey Chantelle i forgot to told you when i was down your way and looked in the u beaut scrappin shop i bought a Cutterbee set of 2 to make the pretend stitch lines.
Good straight line single or the other one makes 2 lines. It is a new line, the lady in the shop hadnt even used it yet she said.

Those are all great! Do you make only one of each style or a whole stack if you like them?

I've only made one of each, but I should mass produce. Would be handy to have in my stash!!
