WOYWW # 389 and a freebie


It's WOYWW# 389!  Stop over to Julia's blog Stamping ground and join in the world wide fun!!
Busy day for my desk - well it isn't even a desk, it is a skimpy little folding table!!  That is okay, My packing for the move is going great and I have just enough "stuff" unpacked to keep creating!

Yesterday I made this Fleur card.  I found an old piece of SU paper that I really liked so I made the card.






Then I had 2/3rds of that paper left.  So in an effort to leave no paper scraps behind in Texas I decided to make more cards with that red and cream  paper, here's the desk top:


I made two more:

A6 size


This time instead of using foam dimensional tape I just snip[ed the petals and shaped them a bit.
I really liked how that came out and since I use a 120# -130# card bases, I don't like the bulk of foam tape. It makes the cards more fragile in the mailing process.

Still had a good size piece left so I made this card:

A6 size


and since I cut into that G45 paper I had even more bits to use up 

so I made these: A2 size cards





It was kinda like a paper hydra!
 The little black cards will be used for thank you or notes tucked into other things.

and Since you have read this far I will leave you with a freebie to play with!



I think this would make a great  "Boy" card - it is an image Magenta uses!!




Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!

  2. Hi Ginny. As with Shaz, I was smiling my way through that post. Love the concept of a card making Hydra!! But oh how true, can't bear to waste good paper, have to use up all the little bits wherever possible. The end results are beautiful. Well done.
    Take care. God bless.

  8. All beautiful cards, Ginny, but I especially like the red "fleur" one. I haven't participated in a WOYWW in a while. I need to get back into it regularly again. I miss it! Hugs, Crystal
