So - I thought I would finally write this entry instead! I originally created this little mini card set well before the CAS-ual Fridays deadline but I didn't take photos and post on time because I'm silly and a little bit time poor at the moment :(
I thought I'd share anyway because I would like to enter this into the Jay Gee's Nook challenge this month using the following inspiration photo:
I'm also taking a shot at Hero Arts' October contest. Can you tell which sketch I used?
These cards fit the mini envelopes I have. The cards themselves measure 4 x 6" unfolded (4 x 3" folded). I used papers from the Christmas Carnival collection (Kaisercraft) and the yellow dotted pattern is from the Lilac Avenue collection (also Kaisercraft) and coloured white ribbon with copics to make the banners.
I did the unthinkable and cut up a couple of my Hero Arts clear stamps - 'Feel Better Soon' from the 'All Occasion Messages' set and 'Enjoy Today to the Fullest' from the 'Wonderful Birthday' stamp set. It was much easier to stamp them that way and they can always be put back together.
I cut out all of the circles with my Spellbinders dies and mixed and matched the coloured ribbon with the patterns to create each individual card.
That's it from me today, I hope everyone has a wonderful, crafty Saturday!
