What a busy weekend! I helped my friend with a rummage sale. We did pretty good. I was so very happy to sell Megan's bed from school and a diy dresser that I never did anything with. Fortunately, the weather was fabulous this weekend! Usually, for City-Wide Rummage Sale, it's either rainy or super hot. This time it was just right.
This is one of the pattern paper in the Lights Aglow 6x6 DSP pack. My first thought was that it would make great little 3x3 cards. Perfect for sticking in a Christmas gift bag.
I just cut them down so they would be 2 7/8 x 2 7/8. Adhered them to the front of a pice of Basic White 3 x 6, scored at 3 inches. Since there was 4 shapes, it was time to make 4 different cards!
And I said 4 different cards, I meant 4 different ones. At a glance, here they are.
I thought these turned out super cute. Every card has it's own stamped sentiment and embellishment. The sentiments are from the new Brightest Glow stamp set.
Also, two cards have the sentiment popped up with dimensionals. The other two cards are the opposite by having the Cherry Cobbler outside popped up with dimensionals and the sentiment is adhered to the card base.
I had to dig through my retired stash of embellishments to come up with some gold ribbon and pearls. It was actually fun trying to make 4 different designs. And these sentiments are the perfect size for these cards.
Now, about the only thing that is the same on every card is the inside. It's simple and perfect. I couldn't use a large sentiment because there wouldn't be enough room to sign it.
Even the envelopes are different. The retired stamp pad I kept was perfect to use. Otherwise, embossing with the gold powder would work too. Sorry the picture isn't very good, but it's hard to photograph just gold on white.
In the pack of DSP, this pattern is also done in Soft Succulent. I'm very tempted to do another set with that paper. They would make a great little present fo someone. Maybe a St. Nick present? Secret Santa?
I didn't do a recipe like I normally create for these cards, just listed the basic supplies used.
Until next time...Stampin' Always,
