Hi everyone! I came across this thread on splitcoast stampers yesterday and I thought I would share it with all of you.
Dustin Pike has some really great digi images, if you haven't visited his blog yet, be sure to check it out.
Dustin has come up with a great idea to help raise some money for Primary Children's Medical Center. Dustin is asking for us card makers to donate a set of 5-6 cards w/envelopes for the center to sell.
You can find more information about this in the first link that I posted, there's still some time left if you are interested in sending Dustin a set of cards.
I decided to make a tote and a set of six matching cards. This is the first time that I have attempted making one of these totes.
I have seen several of these throughout the splitcoast gallery and I decided to give it a try. Here is a link to the instructions that I used for making the tote.
I'll post pictures of each card so that you can see them better.
I used my SU snowflake punch on each card and it is layered using my scallop punch and 1 3/8" circle punch.
The snowflake pattern paper is also from SU and my Season's Greetings sentiment is from SU's Snow Swirled.
The cardstock that I used to make my cards and tote is: white, Night of Navy, and Bashful Blue. I also used some silver accents on my cards. I used some silver cording and silver brads.
On my first card that I posted above I used my scallop punch to create the scalloped border. I punched each piece of card stock using my scallop punch and then I staggered them pieces to give it a different look.
I also used my scor-pal to create some decorative score lines on some of my cards.
My card that I have posted just to the left here was really simple to make and I find myself using this layout quite often.
On my card just to the right, I again used my scallop border punch for the Bashful Blue card stock and for some added interest I scored two decorative lines just above my Season's Greetings sentiment.
I've also added two small ribbon tabs just to the right of my punched snowflake.
I really like this layout out as well on my last card I have posted. I'm sure that I'll be using this again and again.
Thanks so much for looking!
I hope you all like my set of snowflake cards!
I ended up making one more set of cards with a matching tote bag. I'll try to post that tomorrow.
