So, the holidays are over, and it’s a new year! After all the holiday dust settled, it was time to sit down and make a batch of thank you cards for the thoughtful gifts I received. It was also time for me to make some New Year cards. I spent my entire weekend in my craft room creating — which I absolutely loved being able to do!
Where to begin???? Well, I wanted something simple that could easily be mass produced and something that I could make with the supplies I had on hand.
I started with the Whisper White Notecards and Envelopes. Although these have been discontinued, they have been replaced with the Basic White Notecards and Envelopes. Having my bases precut and pre-scored saved LOTS of time. Next I cut my DSP into o 3 x 4 pieces. I also cut little strips of coordinating card stock into strips of 1/4 x 4. The next step was to bring out my baggie with all my Whisper White scraps and stamp my sentiments. Those were die cut using the smallest oval from the Stitched Shapes framelits set. The sentiment was propped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Lastly, a Rhinestone Jewel (or three) added the final touch.
The New Years Card was made using the foil side of the Feels Like Frost DSP. The papers were 6 x 6, so I was able too make two card fronts from each piece, and had a 2 x 6 piece left over from each sheet. Rest assured, those little strips will be put to good use on an upcoming card! I used the sentiment from the retired Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set.
The two thank you cards used DSP from a very retired collection called Winter Frost. Those sheets were 12 x 12, so I was able to make 12 cards from each sheet! I used two different designs because I needed LOTS of cards. The sentiment on these came from the Timeless Tropical set.
