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

This time we have the stipulation to
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.

  1. It may think it was a challenge for you but you had no trouble pulling off the one layer and three images...these are all so very cute...I really like the cupcake. Thanks for sharing them!

  2. I need to learn to proof read first...I ment 'you may think it was a challenge for you'.

  3. Carol, I hope you know me well enough that when I say, "show off," you'll know I say it with love and admiration! Your cards are adorable and your gift pack, devine. I think you've found a new niche for your talent!

  4. What a wonderful gift! These will be appreciated so much!

  5. Carol, what a wonderful set of cards! You make one layer look easy!

  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.

  15. Wow! Your cards are wonderful and the portfolio is perfect for the cards! Great post today!

  16. What a wonderful card set. Each card is just so perfect, and some lucky person will get them all--swoon! You must have gotten an A+ in your card class.

  17. Wow carol these are just amazing!
