July SFYTT x 2

Hi folks,

I had some time to sit down and craft this weekend. I decided it was time to make my card (as it turns out cards - plural) for the July SFYTT challenge.

Here's this month's SFYTT:



And the two cards I made

The first one is a 6x6 sympathy card:



The second one, is a 4.25 x 5.5 card for my sweetie (it was in his lunch today)



I find it's just as easy to make two cards as it is to make one (most of the time) - you have the papers and everything out all already.

card #1details:

  • finished size: 6x6, CTMH Chocolate cardstock base
  • patterned papers: CTMH That's Amore, edges ink distressed with CTMH Chocolate Ink
  • digi image: Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Tulips. It is coloured with Copic Markers but I will have to come back to list which ones since I had it in my pre-coloured image folder already coloured and ready to use.
  • sentiment: Verve "New Mercies"
  • Spellbinders: Petite Ovals
card #2 details:
  • finished size: 4.25 x 5.5 inches, CTMH Chocolate cardstock base
  • patterned papers: CTMH That's Amore, edges ink distressed with CTMH Chocolate Ink
  • sentiment: Verve "Love Notes"
  • Verve Jotted Heart Die

challenges for these cards:
  • for card #1: Sugar Creek Hollow #20 - a vintage/shabby chic/primitive style Sympathy card. I've always found this particular paper pack from CTMH to have a vintage feel - maybe it's the brocade
Anyways, thanks for stopping by!
