Back in January I followed an online card class for making Clean and Simple Cards because it is a style I have a lot of difficulty with as a lover of buttons and ribbons and bows and dimensional flowers and hardware and..... you get the idea. Well I thoroughly enjoyed the class but I got behind and didn't manage to fit in all the assignments in time. One of the assignments was to make a pack of cards and as I usually never make more than 2 copies of any card, I wanted to give it a try. As you know, my daughter just turned 30 and so of course did a number of her friends. She wanted to give a couple of her friends, 30 gifts to open on the day and she commissioned me to make a couple of packs of cards to go in the pile. This gave me the incentive to get busy and this is what I came up with:-
a selection of ribbon banners for the sentiments
a mixture of bright flowers
set of stems for the flowers to sit on
a little mat and a 'thank you' sentiment
another mat and a 'just saying hello' sentiment
a handmade box, lid and bellyband
the finished product.
I put some music on and got on a roll with the die cutting and stamping and had a lovely time making the 2 packs of 6 cards.
Thanks for looking.
