Good morning girls. Hope everyone had a lovely weekend and that those of you who celebrate Easter found it to be a blessed time. I'm back today with my next little project for My Time Made Easy. I have another one coming in a few days so stay tuned for that as well. :-)
I have another simple card set to share today. When Lauren challenged us to make cards this month as one of our projects I got carried away and made a second set as well but this time I used the Slip Cover Pretty Packaging template set to actually hold the cards. On my previous post with Slip Cover (found here) I showed it as a gift box but it really is THE perfect box to hold a set of cards. One of the gals I give cards to loves birthday cards so this set is ALL birthday. I also took advantage of another opportunity to use Kristin's beautiful digital papers. Remember, later this month is Administrative Assistant's Day and this little card set idea makes a perfect gift. Or how about a set of cards for your mom or sister or grandma or best friend?
(By the way - does anyone really read all this or do you just look at the photos? I'm curious about that so if you're inclined to leave me a comment let me know your preference. Thx)
Here's a photo of the box opened.
You're also getting a peek at the first card in the set and a hint as to why I chose the colors I did for the Slip Cover. Here are all the cards...
I used the same sketch for each one (Beate's Weekend Sketch #105).
Following are the rest of the cards individually plus a bonus card at the end :-)
Used my favorite new stamp set called Just For You - and pulled the beautiful Happy Birthday sentiment from it but I also used the adorable little images from the set as well. This is a fabulous set with so many possibilities it will make your mojo dance like crazy! I also snuck in a little butterfly from the butterfly flourish in the new Petal Perfection set as well :-) Aren't those papers so pretty together - thanks Kristin for such lovely coordinating papers.
Petal Perfections as the focal image.
Had to use this super fun cupcake paper and the cupcake images for one of them - what says birthday better than a sweet little cupcake? Hard to see but the cupcakes were hand cut and popped up.
Finally for the bonus card - it wasn't part of the set of 4 that I photographed BUT I had the idea for this one and room for one more in the box... so I added a more masculine card for my friend too.
FREE SET this month!!! The sentiment also comes from So Sentimental.
So there you have it - a quick and easy set of cards - perfect for a gift and you could certainly mix up the sentiments.
Have a great week. See you again in a few days. Thanks for stopping by.
Hugs n smiles.
