Left Over P1

During the process of making my best friend's wedding invitations earlier this year, I had lots of cut materials and stamped images left over.  I made several cards with some of them (click here and here to see), and I made note cards which were placed on the wedding reception tables (top right of the picture below) for guests to write messages on.

Last Friday, I managed to clear my craft desk and craft room floor... woot!!!

Then I came across a bunch more leftovers from the wedding invitations - more of  the samplers I made for my friend.  So I made three big cards (8.5 x 5.5) using some of these leftovers.  Making this post first of a series of three.

For this first card,  I went for a vertical design using this image cut with Cricut Expressions and sentiment originally made for the wedding invitation slider.

Most of the tools I used are edge punches by Martha Stewart and EK Success.  The embellishments are mainly by Prima (washi tape and trim). 

Materials used:
cardstock/dp:  The Paper Company, leftovers
image/sentiment:  Verve
ink:  Tsukineko
tools:  Cricut, Spellbinders, Martha Stewart, EK Success
embellishments:  Prima, Darice
adhesive:  Scotch, Glue Dots, mounting tape

It sure feels great to make cards again.  Looking back at my old blog posts, the last card I made was in early June.  That was almost three months.  It's time to catch up with the card making.

'Til next blog!
