Froggy Card Set

I like to make card sets to give as gifts.  But when I do, I like to keep it as "unbulky" as possible so that the recipients won't have difficulty or to spend more in mailing.  That's also my rule when I sell my cards in a craft show.  The ratio would be about 75 - 25, with the well decorated cards in the 25 percent.  

Last night, I made a set of 6 cards for a friend who I haven't seen for a long time.  Given the time, I wanted them to be pretty, but quick and easy.  So I looked through my RAKed images stash and I found these cute frog images that I have already colored from a previous project.  Perfect, because she's into those things, I suppose.  

The size of each card is 4 x 6, basing it on the envelopes I chose to use.  I maintained a uniformed look although the sentiments vary.  Then I used the frog image as enclosure for the cards.


Materials used:
cardstock/dp:  Georgia Pacific, Chatter Box, ColorBok
image/sentiment:  Creative Memories, Verve, Hero Arts, RAKed
tools:  Stampin' Up, Spellbinders, EK Success, Cuttlebug, Janome, Martha Stewart
ink:  Copic
embellishments:  pearls
misc.:  Liquid Pearls, Beaddazzles
adhesive:  Scotch, mounting tape

In the end, I put the cards with the envelopes in plastic packaging then sealed with Fastenator.  Yes, believe it or not, I still use that tool.

Hey guess what???  Today's a snow day... more time to play!

'Til next blog!
