Embossed Floral Stripes Note Cards

By Cards, Planner Stationary & Accessories

Hi All,

I’m making a switch up from the white cards to a something a bit more different today. These card bases are embossed with tiny dots along the entire front. Truth be told, I struggled with the concept for this card for some time. I really loved the floral pattern, but I wanted to add some more color and didn’t quite know where to add them in. After a ton of brain storming, I decided to add in a textured light turquoise cardstock in small stripes. These stripes measure just about 1/8″. They coordinate perfectly with the small dot size of the embossed background.

This card is so elegantly finished, that I feel it can fit several occasions like bridal showers, wedding, birthday, office note cards and so many more events.

Here’s a look at the interior of the card. Just look at all those teeny tiny dots!

Hope you enjoyed taking a look at this card and I hope to see you next time!

Elegant Valentine’s Day Cards

Hey all,

It’s been a long while since I’ve updated you on some projects and happenings of the craft room. I’m happy to say that it’s been a great start to the new year and I was working on a bunch of orders in January. Luckily, I have had some time to work on newer projects that I am happy to share with you today.

Last year I made an assortment of classroom/workplace type mini cards that were a hit with so many of you. This year I thought I’d bring back my favorite set. Here’s a look at how they turned out

Each card slightly varies but coordinates with the next. I also used my silhouette to create some fun kraft envelopes that I die-cut and assembled for each set.

I also included a little area on the inside of each card for a little note to be written.

Each card and envelope measures just under 3 1/2″ and is perfect with a little treat for the upcoming holiday!

Christmas Giftcard Holders

Hi All,

Today’s post may not be entirely new to some of my readers (I posted a picture of a box of these on my facebook page earlier this fall). These lil’ pockets will hold the average size giftcard and has a flap that folds over to keep contents in. I think they are pretty darling and look totally vintage.

I will be selling these in variety packs at an upcoming craft fair and will have them up on etsy for any who are interested in having an elegant addition to their holiday gifts.

Holiday Cards – Classic and Elegant

By Cards

Hi all,

I’m back with another card for the online card class. Today’s theme is to focus on cards that are classic and elegant. There were so many variations of cards today. It was interesting to see how each designer envisions classic and elegant.

For this card I wanted to try a version of a card created by one of the guest designers.

First I sketched out the design of an ornament.

For this card I needed many small shaped stamps. Here are a few that I pulled from my stash.

I slowly began stamping and filling in my sketch. Here’s the finished project!

I also enjoyed a card made to look vintage and classic and wanted to try that version of cards as well.

I love that this class makes me think outside the box and create cards using schemes that normally wouldn’t occur to me. Super fun!
