What I did and did not get done
Over the weekends I am trying to make cards using my leftovers and stash. This weekend I didn't even open the bins! What I did get done were two set of 60 cards for my church. While I made 120 card I have very little from it to go into the scrap bin. 3 4x4 squares and 10 4x6 squares to be exact!
Here's what I made on Saturday:
an invitation to a ladies day
front being worked on
This batch of 60 took about 3 hours and were a lot of fun to make!
The next set is a batch of anniversary cards: Inside
These are very simple 2 layers on a 5x7 card base, I used this stack for the background layer:
I picked it up at Hobby Lobby with a 50% coupon. I picked a light weight paper for this project in an effort to make sure the postage stays under 1 ounce. Plus I was looking for that distressed vintage look - this helped make these cards very fast to work up about another 3 hours.
The Strathmore 110# paper gave these cards a very elegant look and feel. The card will be mailed in a winter white gold foil lined envelope.
Steve is working on my kitchen rehab and it is looking wonderful!
Another busy day here, I hope you have a good one and thank you for stopping by to share the day!
