I’m stamping away this morning, getting ready to get together with some of my stamping family tomorrow. We are going to be making cards directly from our Occasions catalog. They have such great cards in the catalogs, but, to tell you the truth, they look even better in person.
Here are some of the cards that I prepared to share:
This card is on page 18 of the Occasions catalog. It from the stamp set Sure do Love You which has matching framelits!! I was not entirely sure how I was going to attach the gold glitter flakes on this card. Here is a closer view for you:
See those little round gold flakes? Well all I did was run my tombow adhesive where I wanted the flakes, tapped them down lightly with my finger and then tapped the extra off back into the jar for the next card. Very simple and looks striking on the card.
This beautiful card is on page 48 of the Occasions catalog. The stamp set is call Waterfront and is fabulous!! In the catalog they stitched on the verse in the front, but, since I don’t have my sewing machine up and running I added a bakers twine bow instead.
One of my little pet peeves is not having the inside of my cards done. By that I mean every card MUST be layered and stamped inside, not stamped on the base cardstock. Drives me crazy to see cards like that. They just don’t seemed finished to me. When my stampers leave their cards are completely finished and ready to send out.
Here is the inside for the card above:
Now, doesn’t that just finish off this beautiful card. Nice little images stamped inside and room to write a personal note!
What do you think? Do you finish off the insides of your cards?
