Free stamps...it doesn't get much better than that, right? :-) More about that in a minute. First, I wanted to share with you a quick little Mini card Gift set that I made!
I made two each of the three different 4 x 4 notecards. I wanted them simple enough in design to be easily mass produced.
I then created a little box to hold both the cards and envelopes.
To make the box, I just modified the "2-5-7-10 box". (Click on the link for detailed instructions...and my measurements are listed next). I wanted the box to fit my 4 x 4 notecards. I started with a 6" x 12" piece of double sided patterned paper (all patterned paper is from K & Co). I scored at the following intervals: 1 1/2", 5 3/4", 7 1/4", & 11 1/4". I then turned my c.s. vertically and scored at 1 1/2". The rest of the box is assembled the same way as the instructions on SCS (again...click on the link above).
For the mini notecards, I used a 4" square textured Very Vanilla c.s. base. On the blue cards, I added a couple of Dew Drops.
I added ribbon and some piercings to the Rose colored cards.
On the Moss green cards, I added some Vanilla taffeta ribbon (it looks white in the picture...but it is Ivory), a rounded corner, and a small rhinestone.
All of the cards have some subtle shading around all the edges. **Note - I've received a lot of emails asking how I sponge my cards. I will share some tips with you in the next couple of days!
Now...on to the FREE STAMPS!!! :-) Kelley (owner of Our Daily Bread Designs) has graciously donated one Light of the World stamp set for me to give away!! Wooohoo!
There are five stamps included in this set. To be entered into this drawing, just leave a comment on this post!
**Optional: you can also tell me, in your comment, what you do to get out of stamping "ruts". I'm sure we all have experienced this (I know I have...OFTEN) and I would love to read your ideas!!
I will pick the winner (using Random.org) on Wednesday morning! Please...only one comment per person.
Thanks so much for stopping by!!! I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday! ~Laurie
