Have a quick look for 10 seconds – this card is beautiful! It is stamped using Serene Snowflakes stamp set and then embossed with Silver embossing powder. The ribbon (from Michael’s Crafts) is a perfect match for the Bravo Burgundy, Going Grey and silver embossing. It is further complimented with the Styled Silver Hodgepodge tag that is attached with ribbon. I know it is a little early to be thinking about Christmas Cards – but this one is perfect to use or give away early as gift packs of cards. Last year I made over 500 items for Christmas and I started in July with no stress to get them done in a hurry! The video can’t show how nice this card is – you won’t be able to stop at making just one! All the measurements and supplies are listed in the video. If you like a free copy of all the sizes and instructions etc. let me know – I have all the info in an easy email format.
These cards made using the Punches Three stamp set. The cardstock is Bashful Blue and the ink used is Brocade Blue both are from Stampin Up. The blue gingham, blue dot designer paper and ribbon were all purchased at Michael’s Crafts. The video also shows the same card done in pink for a baby girl. I have a few on hand and just got home from a friend’s baby shower – she loved the card! All the measurements and supplies are given in the video.
These cards are made using the Baroque Motif stamp set. This set is one of my favorites and these cards are easy to make. In the video I used Baja Breeze and Not Quite Navy cardstock for one of the cards but I also show the card done in Chocolate Chip with Mellow Moss and also in Always Artichoke with Riding Hood Red cardstock. This card helps to use up some scrap designer paper as it only takes a very small piece 1 3/8” x 3 7/8”. It’s a good card to have ready to use for any occasion by just adding your own greeting! This video also shows you how to save ribbon by tying a bow while one end of the ribbon is still on the roll. All the supplies and measurements are given in the video.

The finished easel card measures 4″ x 4″ fits into a 4 1/4″ square envelope.

Scallop Corner & Border Punches
Wings of Friendship Greeting Card This card was created using the Wings of Friendship hostess stamp set. I used the Mellow Moss ink pad to color the stems and then I hand colored the flowers using the Stamp & Write markers. I punched the So Saffron background with the new punch set, this was a little bit tricky to do but worth the effort! I used Elegant Eggplant cardstock for the matting of the So Saffron and Whisper White cardstocks. The markers used were Elegant Eggplant, Rose Red, Regal Rose and So Saffron. I finshed the card off with Very Vanilla 5/8″ grosgrain ribbon. The finished card measures 4 3/8 x 4 1/4″. Matching envelope was a 5 3/4 x 4 3/8″ regular envelope cut down to fit the card size. The scallop edge punch was used to create a new envelope flap out of So Saffron cardstock. The lower left hand corner was stamped using one of the smaller coordinating flowers stamp included in the set. Beautiful card - your friends would love to receive this card in the mail!
