More Card Projects

Happy first day of 2012 to everyone out there!  It is a very windy Sunday afternoon here in Central Illinois!

These Cards were made using a tutorial from Splitcoaststampers and were given as gifts to my office staff.  It helps to have DS cardstock, but for these, I used SS coordinating papers from a DCWV pad purchased at a yard sale!  Spray adhesive was used to turn the SS into DS.  It did get a little thick where the folds were, so after doing a few, some of the inside layers were cut away and used to decorate the envelope flaps. 

All of the tags and front focals were made from scrap cardstock (yes scraps!)  Since the tags were layered, I made a template for hand cutting them.  Someday, I need to use my Cricut more for these big projects!

The stamps and star template used on the card front and the smaller inside tag are from Paper Wishes, the larger tag stamp is from Inkadinkado Clear Stamps, Humorous Birthday Set.

The ribbons were all from personal stash collected over a number of years.

Tools used: 3” circle, 3 ½” scallop circle punches; cutting mat, exacto knife, scissors

 Pigment chalk inks from Quick Quotes used: Blue Hawaiian, Maraschino Cherry, Very Berry and Midnight Confession

This is the sympathy card.  .  The front and inside sentiments were printed on vellum from this Paper Wishes CD.  The vellum edges were torn and inked with Very Berry from Quick Quotes.  Scraps were used for the green and cream squares.  A paper sack (really!)from my LSS was punched with the Martha Stewart doily lace punch.  The lace layered over the punched border on the front started out as a double-width piece.  It was cut in half to make two narrower strips and embellied with half pearls.

Have a great week!  Jules
