Kelli at There’s No Place Like Home hosts Paper-Crafting Thursday where we can show cards, bookmarks, etc. that we have made — or, I would guess, that others have made and given us.
Our ladies had another session of making cards to give to our missionaries for their use. This first one was made by someone else with what one lady calls “cheater cards” — cards that you buy with a background design already there, and all you have to do is add your embellishments. I thought this was really simple and really cute.
The rest here are mine. This is another one that was simple, but I like its simplicity. I was also trying to make some that weren’t quite so feminine-looking so they could be sent to or from a man. I printed out several phrases like this from the computer that we cut out to use on the cards.
This is one of my favorites — I think it looks so cheery. The saying came from the same stamp I mentioned last time. I stamped it out in several colors on a sheet of cardstock so we could cut them out and use them on different cards.
And this is, I think, my favorite of the night. The papers came from a small pad from Michael’s, so they all coordinated well. Then the ink pad was in “plum” and matched so perfectly. I didn’t have these papers in mind at all when I bought the ink pad, so I was delighted that they all worked so well together.
Sorry for the bit of glare at the bottoms of the pictures. It’s an overcast day, so I had the lights on, but it was hard getting enough light to see but not too much.
Stop by Kelli’s today to see some other great examples. Kelli usually includes instructions for how she makes hers as well.
