Today I'm sharing two cards I made using the same layout. I participated in a swap in one of my yahoo groups, and this first one is the card I made for it.
Sorry the front isn't closed well in this shot. It's hard to see the Cajun Craze strip I punched it with the Dotted Scalloped Ribbon Punch to adhere to the "inside" of the card--which really shows from the front.
This card is made from Island Indigo cardstock. I cut 1-1/4" off the front before I put the white cardstock on it. I did emboss the white with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.
I used the Orchard Harvest designer paper for the "flags" on this one.
I hope the girls I swapped with like my sample! I was a bit bothered that the "flags" were just "stuck" there, so I decided to make a Christmas card using this layout and I anchored them with a piece of card stock.
Here is the Christmas card, made using Baja Breeze and Cherry Cobbler card stock, but non-SU designer paper. I used the Finishing Touches Framelet for the strip down the right side of the card. I also layered the designer paper on the front of this one with Cherry Cobbler. I think that extra layer adds more color!
Here is a close-up shot of the sentiment on this card. I used the "NOEL" from the Greetings of the Season set in the Holiday Mini.
I stamped it on white and this time, rather than putting the two pieces on the top and bottom and then the sides, I decided to put two layers on the top and two on the bottom. Just shows you there are many ways to layer this die.
