I love Stampin’ Up!’s the Open Sea for a masculine card – and here I paired it with a circular image from Blue Ribbon to create a birthday card. I also used a strip of Designer Series Paper from the Epic Day This and That package, and some linen thread, the cheapest most versatile accessory I think I own! Those neutral accessories always go far – did you see that the Burlap Ribbon is on sale this week? That’s in the same category for me.
Can you believe we’re almost half way through November? Even though I do the 12 Weeks of Christmas mailings and have to keep on top of that schedule during the countdown to Christmas, I always find myself a bit shocked at how the time flies. We only have one more monthly Christmas Card Class left – in December!! However – there is a Stamp a Stack on Saturday, November 30th – so you can make 10 Christmas cards (2 each of 5 different designs) in one of the two sessions. Cards are the same for both sessions…though I guess if you came for both, you’d have 20 cards…LOL. Anyway – if you need to build up your stash of handmade cards, please register for one of the sessions! You can do so on the events page itself, or by contacting me by email.
