Using Large Manila Tags from the shop, I stamped various sentiments with Dark Chocolate Ink.
I chose sentiments that I knew my mom and mother-in-law would like because these cards will most likely go in their stash basket. I like to mass produce cards once in a while and tuck in a few cards for their Christmas/birthday/Mother's Day gifts. They always love cards. I kept the card design pretty simply for them too. Muted patterned papers were used for the background. The blue is from My Mind's Eye....the other one had the label chopped off already, sorry.
I wanted to tie some pretty seam binding through the tag hole but my Crop-a-dile wouldn't reach. I got out my handy dandy tool kit that is used for setting brads and was able to make easy work of the holes.
I tied the seam binding through, tied a bow and secured the underside of the knot with a mini glue dot.
And there you have it. A nice little bundle of cards ready for many occasions.
See the wreath on the right and how it has more splatters? I accidentally touched the stamped image with inky fingers....but used some splatters of spray mist to cover it all up. Easy fix.
Feels good to build up the ol' stash.
What have you guys been creating lately? Anyone working on Christmas in July? Or back to school cards? Would love to hear what's inspiring you.
Coming soon: I'll have a small series of blog posts where I'll show you little snippets of my Road Trip Album. Plus Project Life pages coming soon. And....this Fall I'll be doing an Etsy shop update with brand new items that I think you'll love. Stay tuned. :)
