WOYWW#193 and another storm coming!
We've dug out, repaired the Snow blower and did a big food shopping, just in time, more snow coming!! I was very busy today, my women's study group and running a lot of errands. I got dinner going right away in anticipation of having a few hours in my craft room. In the morning before I left the house I planned out my project, I needed kiddie birthday cards. I grabbed a mat stack, the 4.5x6 size, pulled the paper apart and cut them to 4.5x5 to make faces for my cards. Using a mat stack on precut and folded bases is a super fast way to get a lot of clean and simple cards made. A drawer of ribbons, pulled out my collection of kids stamps - these were on wood and after one attempt at stamping and keeping the image in the right place unsuccessfully, I pulled all my stamps off their woodblocks. I am so happy I did, with the oddly shaped images, it has made image placement so much easier!!
I made four of each card (not all are shown) I really enjoyed making these cards, good thing I still need to make a lot more!!
then I glued the card stock to the bases and pressed them under a book. For economy sake I use Aleene's BRUSH on tacky glue for this step. I left them under the book while I was gone for the day and they came out perfect. The Brush makes this easy! I did the whole mat stack of 72 pieces of card stock.
After dinner and during the State of the Union address I made the cards
I send the little ones birthday cards too, for the kiddie cards I use the light weight 80# card stock and usually make it the A2 (half sheet size).
