CAS card gift pack

Hello everyone,

I hope you are having a good week and getting some craft time for yourself. I found a new (to me) challenge blog called Less is More and after following the CAS card on line course in January, I thought I should give this a go. The challenge is a

ONE LAYER CARD
This time we have the stipulation to
USE THREE STAMPS
not four, not two... but 3!


I very rarely make a one layer card and I never know when to stop adding things to a card so this was very challenging for me, but I went through my stamps and decided to make up a small set of note cards as a thank you gift. I used 4inch by 4 inch cards


frame stamp WMS , sentiment PTI  and cupcake Personal Impressions


all stamps Personal Impressions
house Polkadoodles, sentiment and hearts PTI

all 3 stamps PTI
all three stamps were PTI


Fence and bird PTI, sentiment 4th Dimension


I was surprised how quickly the cards were made so they would be ideal for mass production.



 I needed a gift pack to put them in so I took some pearl card and made a folder to pop  the cards and envelopes in,


added some ribbon on the outside


and used some dies and a thank you stamp to put on the front.



These will be a handy little gift to have on hand and I am entering it into Less is More week 67 challenge. Do pop over there and see all the wonderful inspiration.

Thanks for stopping by.
Hugs

  11. I just love the little set of cards, they make a wonderful gift. My fave is the bundle of joy hanging from the branch and a clever way to use the WM frame as one of the stamps too :0)

  14. Well I love one layer cards and these are absolutely fabulous Carol. What I especially like is that they are all so different. Sets of similar cards are sometimes not so useful as gifts as people usually need a variety of styles for family and friends.

    I haven't visited for a while I'm afraid but just want to say how beautiful your wedding album is. It will be a treasure to the happy couple.
