so it is time for another card set. One of my co-workers had a birthday on December 31st. I honestly thought it wasn't until January 1st so I will be giving this to her late. On January 4th.
I decided to use this week's sketch from KL Stampin N Scrappin Blog for all of the cards I made in the set, ten of them, plus the card for the recipient and an extra for my stash. Twelve cards total. I was a busy card-maker this weekend. I made fourteen on Sunday (finished this set in the DARK in a power outage!) and eleven on Saturday.
Anyways, here is the card set!
I used papers from the Sweet Home collection by Close To My Heart. The buttons and ribbon were from my stash.
And some of my favourite "generic" images from a couple of Close To My Heart Stamp sets. Just Because and Celebrate the Everyday. The sentiment panels were cut out using my Spellbinders Nestabilities Small and Large Petite Ovals.
I kept the cards identical except for switching up the ink colours on the images and sentiments. Indian Corn Blue and Garnet (the birthstone for January coincidentally).
I hope my co-worker likes them and can put them to good use!
And these were the last two cards - one will be her birthday card and one will go into my stash.
I SHOULD have another card set to show you soon. The wife of another coworker is turning fifty on January 5th and I am hoping to find the time today to whip up another pretty coordinated set like this for her. I will probably keep it simple like this set and hope that she likes my paper choices.
Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have a great week!
Note that this is my second post for today. Feel free to scroll down to see the other cards I made today.
ETA - Tanya pointed out to me that this week's challenge over at Practical scrappers is to use Buttons on your project! So...I submitted both my card sets!
