I saw a version of this as a wrapper on a Hershey bar and decided to translate it into a card...the card is made from 12 x 12 cardstock so you can get 4 our of them...and they fit in a standard issue envelope...
To get the lined pencil part I punched with edge with the scallop border punch and used my scoring tool to score the lines...the silver 'metal' bad is a piece of sliver cardstock run through the Houndstooth embossing folder...the pencil point it just a 3/4 in black circle glued on and trimmed...

So I saw this idea on Papertreyink's blog, where they used an actually manila folder to create this little pocket for Pixie sticks...isn't it adorable?
The envelope is just cut in half and glued on the one open side..stamped and a little stamped image (here from Booglie Eyes) in placed in a scalloped circle and attached with a bit of ribbon...
So now I'm making over 70 for 3 of my kids to bring in for Halloween! Can anyone say Christmas treats with candy canes?

Let me know if you are interested in picking one up...makes a great teacher gift!
Pacific Point, Marina Mist, Old Olive
I markered up the stamp and stamped 2x without re-inking...makes for the subtle shaded flowers

I love all the colors--they really just pop! But I felt the card was lacking something, so I added some Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the center of the yellow flower...I think a button may have worked, too, but I didn't have a Daffodil Delight button...
The layout is from Krista Fenton, as always...

This card uses white card stock (obviously!)...the layer under the first white square it a layer of glossy card stock--it's almost a different shade of white, so there is some contrast...
The measurements for the layers are as follows:
Card is 5 1/2 squared
Glossy layer 4 3/4 squared
White inner layer 4 1/2 squared
Top of cake 1 1/2 x 2 1/2
Middle 1 1/2 x 3
Bottom 1 1/2 x 3 1/2
The corners are rounded and the layer is embossed...the ruffle trim is the ribbon punch, layered underneath...I'm sure the scallop border punch would be a great substitute! You could also add some tiny punched flowers to add some color...
Wouldn't this make a nice birthday card, too?

Here I used Concord Crush and Wysteria Wonder...I added extra flowers of all sizes and some bling...it makes for a really 'wow' card!

I got this set 'Love & Care' from my friend Brenda and couldn't wait to make this card...isn't it GORGEOUS????
The original card that I CASEd used a piece of Old Olive D/S paper, but since I didn't have any, I stamped my solid card stock with the canvas background stamp...the pearl just added a sweet touch...

So here it is...this is actually the first version...as it sat on my desk, I kept looking and looking at it and felt it needed something...then the day before I had to give it to my friend, I added some Night of Navy tiny punched flowers and more stamped flowers...and of course some more rhinestones...the background is stamped in Bliss Blue and embossed in the Big Shot...the card measure 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 and fits into a vellum envelope...
The actual finished card is much better! But I'm not sure if I took a photo of it before I delivered it!

Oh, I forgot to mention that I crimped the cupcake wrapper with the crimper and sponged some Chocolate Chip ink along the edges...it really makes the crimps pop!

I decided to make a set a cupcake birthday cards to sell at an upcoming craft/vendor fair...so here's the first card...

I love this layout (I made a Baby Boy card a while back)...I used the new Houndstooth embossing folder...I didn't have any brads or eyelets to match any of the new colors, so I just punch 3 tiny circles and glued in place...now that I am looking at it, I guess I could have used silver or black...duh...

I also had this layout sitting around, waiting for the right stamp set, and I think I found it!

I used the rose embossing folder this time and glued glitter on the raised edges...it's still a petty card, but I like the white version much better!
Might make a pretty wedding card...

The grass side of the stamp makes a reaaly nice background...

The set is called 'Inspired by Nature'...it's so versatile...I just markered up the stamp and set it on a piece of Confetti White card stock...I added some highlights to the Crushed Curry petals with some More Mustard and some Early Expresso highlights the Soft Suede center of the flower....Old Olive for the leaves...
Tuesday, September 6, 2011
I embossed a piece of white card stock with a non SU! embossing folder (it's actually a Cuttlebug one)...ran my 2 wat glue stick over the raised parts and added some Dazzling Diamonds...
The original card has 2 pink rhinestones adhered to the flowers, but I didn't ant to ruin the effect I had gotten with just the plain card...it is truly stunning--I even impressed myself!
I thought this would make a gorgeous wedding invite or card...or maybe even a set of note cards...

I've seen some people make even better seeds out of the throw away parts of the new 3 layer flower/doily punches, but I don't have either one...

I colored the flamencos with markers, adding some shading...after I stamped them, I filled in their eyes with Basic Black marker...I added some color to the stamped hearts on the bottom with the Regal Rose marker...

The ring image is from the retired "Goody Goody" set...the swirled hearts is a retired background set...the rest is pretty self evident, except I added Dazzling Diamonds to the diamond, of course!
