This is a quick gift that would look lovely on your Easter table or just a little treat gift. I used the That’s the Tag bundle. That’s the Tag has greetings for weddings, Mother’s Day, new babies, birthday, congratulations, thinking of you, and thanks. But I wanted it for Easter, so I used Teeny Tiny Wishes. That set has a greeting for just about everything!
This is another one of those thrifty cards using every little bit of paper. The Designer Series Paper uses measurements evenly divided by 12, the dimensions of the paper. The Tangerine Tango is also just about 1/8′ of a sheet of card stock. The 2 poppies that are cut out came from the portion hidden by the Whisper White layer. There was even enough to cut out slivers with the Word Window Punch to frame the greeting. The Whisper White is just a bit smaller than that, but the left-over strip is used for the greeting cut with the Word Window Punch. If you decide to use the Decorative Label Punch for the greeting instead, you can take it from a layer inside the card and then replace that with a punch from the Tangerine Tango.
And isn’t this stamp set wonderful? I sure hope this gets carried over into the new annual catalog! I think it’s a keeper!
A few folds in an 8 1/2″ x 11″ sheet of paper and one cut gives you 2 diagonal pockets that can open for an inside greeting too. We embellished a card for the back pocket and put a gift card in the front one. Add a bit of embellishment and you’re done!
This card is really gorgeous in person, if I do say so myself. You would think there’s an actual doily on the card! Stamp the doily, emboss with White embossing powder, and keep on hand for just about any event. Sponge with an appropriate color, add as sentiment, and you’re ready to go. This photo shows a spider and Basic Black sponging for Halloween, 5-Petal Punched flowers and Cherry Cobbler sponging for Christmas, A Basic Pearl embellishment and Crumb Cake sponging for a lovely wedding card, Pretty in Pink or Pink Pirouette sponging would make a nice card for a baby shower, 5-Petal Punched flowers and Perfect Plum or Old Olive for perhaps a birthday or even get well. You get the idea. This is a great card to keep on hand! And to think it requires very few tools: Hello Doily and Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp sets, Whisper White or Naturals White card stock, White embossing powder, a Heat Tool, and one or more stamp pads.
We all get inspiration from things we see. There are just a few projects I've shown that are CASEd (Copied and Shared Everything). Most of my cards come from a technique I've seen many places and I've made it my own in some way.
I post photos and directions so you can get inspiration. It's OK to copy them for personal use, but hopefully you will make it your own in some way. If you copy my ideas exactly, please give me credit for it. Do not sell any of my directions or organizing tools.
