final two cards from May's class

Life is crazy around here! This week is VBS at church and it's demanding most of my time, since I work there.
Just a quick post to share a couple more cards.

Here's a little gift card. I found this "just for you" card in the Silhouette store.
Here's the link to it in the Silhouette Store.

I found some great text paper by My Mind's Eye and popped it up over it. Super easy!
I got some adorable kraft gift enclosure card envelopes at Hobby Lobby and made this to fit.
It has a kraft insert for easy writing, in case my students didn't have a white pen.
It's tiny - only 2.5" wide by 3.5" tall.


The other card is a little different for me.
I wanted something elegant that would work well for a Sympathy Card, Thinking of You, etc.
I found this great damask paper by My Mind's Eye and the polka dot that backed it, also the stripe.


I cut the butterfly out with my Silhouette and then dry embossed it with my Cuttlebug.
I found the pearls at Hobby Lobby and to add a little something, I inked the edges on all, which is rare for me.
Sometimes you just need a little ink on your edges.
I envisioned the middle area as being notched on the edges so I was going to cut it out with my Silhouette.
Then I realized, I could take a round punch and barely punch the corners off.
I love how it turned out and plan to do this again often!

Hope you enjoyed these!

I just listened to the Paperclipping Roundtable from last week. It was all about cards so if you missed it, be sure to check it out!
Here's a link..... "How to Mail a Coconut" (That title will make sense once you listen!)

See you soon!

I've served as a teacher for VBS, so I understand how hectic things can be during that week! Great cards! I love that butterfly one too!
