Happy Holidays. Welcome back. Thanks for dropping in. I have be working fervently to complete a few sets of cards. I found some pins on pinterest that intrigued me enough to make my own set!
I found this set on pinterest, and with a few tweaks, I had everything on hand to create four sets of 7 cards. They were a blast to create, and very time consuming. (they don't look it, right)
I always thought I had more embossing folders than I was ever going to use for crafting. Can you believe that I was one design short? I tried using these fiskars texture plates through my cuttlebug, and ended up cracking it in three! The pink pattern is from the pate that cracked. I had to dig into my snowflake pattern for the green cards. (shh...no one will notice if you don't point it out...shh) I think I need to pick up a few more patterns! I think I have a hobby lobby gift card burning a hole in my pocket. :)
I know you can't tell size from this picture, but these are a mere 3 inches by 3 inches! They are so cute! I made enough for four complete sets. (math....28 cards) I am wondering if I need to make envies for these. (I could, not difficult), but the buttons would be bumpy, and they are just too cute to shove into envies. Will need to think about that. What do you think?
I have been wanting to invest in baker's twine, but never thought when I would need to use it. So I bought one... and Viola! now I understand. I don't think I need all the different colors, but the black and white looks great here.
So silly, but I have been holding onto all these random buttons. I LOVE how they look on these cards. Mind you, stringing twine through all the holes was a bit tedious, but I will use them more often on cards. What a learning experience. I have been creating cards for years, and I still have so much more to try!
Thanks for dropping in.....Next post....Birthday card set!
