Easy layout; machine stitching adds time but could easily be eliminated. The glitter paper makes these cards, along with the adorable doodlepops.
Since the doodlepop will cause a postage surcharge, I popped the circle layer too. An extra twenty cents for postage is so worth the smiles that one of these cards will bring to its recipient.
I have found over the years, that to keep from getting bored with the process of making the massive quantity of holiday cards needed - and subsequently vowing never to make holiday cards again - I create one to six of each style card. This keeps the creative and construction process interesting and enjoyable.
Envelopes each feature a completely hidden magnetic closure - I'd love to hear from you if you wish for a mini tutorial on these, as they sell well at the market (weddings, baby, shower - both baby and bridal especially). Hope your weekend is going well!
Custom card for a customer at the Saturday market for this past admin day - his assistant is 64 years of age and calls herself a 'secretary', and this customer specifically wanted the card to read 'secretary'...not the current terminology. The business deals with training dogs to find humans in earthquake rubble, hence the 'scents' pun.
Allison dressed for the Junior Prom - almost 17 years of age - same dress worn for 8th grade graduation (she was 14) about here three years ago:
Some pre-Easter/Spring projects: covered candy for friends using Doodlebug Springtime and Poppystamps' Grand Bunny die and a white pom-pom from the stash.
The two younger kids' teacher gift bags using more Doodlebug Springtime papers, treat bags and embellishments. Teacher names were printed in MS Word and these were done quickly and each child signed the back of the bag. I call Doodlebug paper lines 'happy paper'. Thanks for stopping by today!
I created a permanent template by embossing the die on white cardstock, then measuring the diameter of the circles and making note of the measurements. Die was also embossed onto kraft cardstock and cut from white cardstock, for the actual card.
Patterned papers are Bazzill Vintage Lace 12x12 pad - punched the size circles needed.
Arranged and adhered circles in place, cutting off excess.
Finished card - measures 4.25 x 5.5 inches and uses Doodlebug Sprinkles. Once the template was created these were a piece of cake to create - will sell in boxes of six at the market. Tomorrow is April 1st - Happy April Fool's Day!
On a personal note, I opted out of running the 10 miler - simply could not devote the time needed to run the mileage needed per week to run this type of race. Kickboxing I LOVE - gave me the dents in my obliques. 5K turkey trot this year is a go! Still want to do a color run... Anyone gone Paleo?
