I really need to start gearing up for all of the holiday craft shows that I have committed to participating in. The only problem is finding the time for my crafting. So I briefly stopped doing laundry today to make a few really quick cards with the Artiste cartridge and CTMH's new paper line, Pear & Partridge. I cut out the card on page 57 of the Artiste booklet at 3.75", which was the largest available on a sheet of 12" cardstock. And with some manual intervention, I was able to cut out three cards from one sheet! I cut out the "card" shape on page 77 two times, at 2.5" and 3" to create the layered saying. I stamped with Chocolate ink and distressed the edges with Desert Sand. A strip of leftover cardstock behind the saying, some pop dots, bling and done. I love, love, love the saying, I think because it, as well as the paper, reminds me of something back in my childhood back in the 1970's. The saying is part of the Pear & Partridge Workshop on the Go Card Kit.
The best part of the whole project was that I was able to cut out, stamp and assemble 3 of these cards in under 5 minutes. Once opened, the card has a built in tab that would be perfect for holding a gift card. Stay tuned to see what else I whip up with for the holidays!
