One Card, Two Ways

Do you like to keep scraps?  We find that most stampers and paper crafters do.

But we’re so busy MAKING scraps that we donate some to the local church for Sunday School or pre-school.

What we DO keep are abandoned card parts.  What are those?  Those are the parts of a card that we started to use and then changed our mind.

Today’s card started like that.  We didn’t like the way it looked on the card in this post.  (We preferred the leaves fussy cut and mounted.)  So we made this little square card.

And then we changed our mind about that too!

Or maybe I shouldn’t bark “WE”.

Here’s the first card I had Ann make.  It’s a great masculine card.  The Gold Basic Metal Button is solid and strong.

STAMPING TIPS

  • Making the cards 4-1/2″ square allows them to fit in a standard card envelope so you won’t get charged extra postage
  • When folding your card against the grain (vertical), it’s best to score first for an even fold
  • Color Combo:  Cajun Craze; Blackberry Bliss; Very Vanilla

And here’s the 2nd one.  The only difference is the Autumn Wooden Elements that we attached with a combination of Mini Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

  1. I like the 1st card. And I like most of your cards. Thx for sharing! (Cajun and Coltrane say…woof woof!)

  2. I may be in the minority; but, I really like the first one. I like to keep my cards simple. The second one is a little too busy for me.

    • Actually, we like them both, Barb, for different reasons. Glad you like one too!
