Hand-Crafted Greeting Cards and Paper Gifts

July Flower Patch

Here’s another card we made in my July class:

IMG_0374

I CASE’d it from Sandy Mathis, but changed up the colors a little to go with the DSP I had in my stash. In addition to the leaves (Pear Pizzazz and Mossy Meadow) and flowers (Crisp Cantaloupe, Calypso Coral, and Basic Black) this card features a panel embossed with the new Large Polka Dots EF. Love it! The strip of DSP is from the Gold Soiree set. The Pear Pizzazz ribbon is the new ¼” Cotton Ribbon, which is very soft and easy to work with. Calypso Coral CS makes the two mats.

Flip Top Treat Box

In my July Class last week we made these adorable Flip Top Treat Boxes. I learned how to make them from Angela Pyjas’ video tutorial.

The Perfect Plum/Pool Party box on the left has a piece of Window Sheet adhered to the inside of the box covering the window. The Daffodil Delight/Real Red on on the right does not. Both have the treats in a 4x6” cellophane bag, so I decided the Window Sheet wasn’t necessary.

They are very quick and easy to make! They’d be perfect for co-worker holiday/birthday gifts, Secret Santas/Sisters, party favors, etc. You can use any shape of Framelits as long as you get two that nest to make a frame for the outside.

I like to watch the video tutorial to see how something goes together, but I prefer to work from written directions. So I made my own picture tutorial for my class attendees...and I’m sharing it with you, too!

I’d love to see what you create...send me pictures at nancy@nancysniftynotes.com!

Flowerpot Birthday

Continuing my resolution to use my new Designer Series Paper (DSP)...

This card features a sheet from the Flowerpot series.

IMG_0369

The paper really does all the work here. The sentiment is from the Countless Sayings 2 photopolymer set (not shown in the AC) and stamped in Night of Navy. It’s embellished with a flower in Lost Lagoon from the Boho Blossoms punch with a Night of Navy Candy Dot in the center. Layered on Garden Green and Tangerine Tango, this card is one cheerful pop of color!
