I finally got another gardening themed card finished up...I think I will try to make another one with the same background design paper. I have decided to package them together in groups of two...That way I can put the envelopes in the center and face the front of each card out (front and back). Think I will use some Cello wrap and a snippet of twine to wrap them together. That way you can see what you are getting.
I got a little inkier with this one...ink and kraft just have to go together!
I had fun fussy cutting the gardening fork and trowel...I thought they just tucked into that corner quite well.
The Bliss sign was part of a package of several boxes I bought at the scrapbook garage sale. I think I paid 25 cents for a packet of about 30 boxes. I cut the box apart and trimmed up the word to use as the sentiment.
Hopefully someone is going to chose these card sets at the raffle...Basically you buy an arm of tickets and then have about 30-60 seconds to chose your prize before they are calling the next winner. As I can't dig up any perennials right now, I hope these cards will be a good alternative donation to the garden club.
This will be a great one for Pixies Crafty Workshop as it has so many snippets. When I am bored (or when my mojo fails), I sit and roll my left over scraps thru my Big shot, into die cuts. Larger ones get stored in baggies, smaller one get stored in dollar store photo albums. Each photo sleeve holds all the colours for one style of die. It is so handy and it sort of protects the snippets. When I used to just store them all as 1/4 sheets of paper or whatever, they got sort of jumbled in the file folders and got wrinkled or dented. I even punch the smaller pieces with my stampin up punches and throw those into the photo sleeves too.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
