"Just a Note" Boxed Gift Card Set #2

Click on images to see them full size.

Here is another card set I just made for my friend. I used the Anna Griffin Isabelle collection for the patterned background paper.  I also used the new Martha Stewart Sunburst collection of punches from HSN for the turquoise sunburst pattern.  The red topnote square which the owls are sitting on are dies from Spellbinder's Nestabilities collection, and the owls are from Recollections.

I love to make cards to give away as boxed sets.  I can't keep up with making the amount I need to give away for every occasion, especially as thank you gifts to all my good friends for being so wonderful to me while my husband is deployed.  Here is a set I made a while back.  I especially love to make the box I put them in, it is too cute.  I am in the process of making a video of how I make these boxes so look for that in the next few days.

Mother's Day Bouquet Cartridge

I created all three of these cards using the Mother's Day Bouquet Cricut Cartridge.  The patterned paper on the first and third cards are from the Isabella Collection by Anna Griffin, my all time favorite designer! The pink and orange patterned paper is from the new K and Company stack by Caroline Gavin called Greenhouse.  The rick rack is cut from the rick rack border punch by EK success.  The flowers are all cut from various textured cardstock in different sizes ranging from 1" to 3".  I just layered them and curled the edges a bit for dimension. I do not remember who makes the "just a note" sentiment stamp, however, I stamped it on to a strip of cardstock and just folded the paper to look like a banner, then inked the edges. The first two cards are gate fold cards.  All three cards are A2 sized.

B is for Boy--Cricut Lite Cartridge

These cards were so fun.  I am going to challenge myself to make a card from every image on the B is for Boy cartridge, which won't be hard to do since they are all so cute.  I cut the images on my cricut all at 3" and used an A2 sized card for all of them.  I like making a few versions of the same card to have some extra on hand.
