Just for You - Card A Day Blog

Here's the card sketch for this week at Card A Day Blog and the Designer is Shirley Ross. Stop by and see what she had for inspiration for you today.

Here is the first card. I made two card out of one sheet of 8 1/2 x 11" paper. I used the corner rounder punch on the right side only.

I used the Retro prints mat stack for the pattern paper. The back ground papers are cut at 2 x 5 1/4" and I rounded the right side. I embossed the Kraft piece to add a little bit of dimension. I cut the white cardstock at 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 " and rounded the right side corners. After stamping my image adhered the polka dot paper cut at 1 1/2 x 3 1/2" with the corners on the right rounded. I added a bit of seam binding to finish off the front of the card.

Here is an angle view that shows how I finished of the inside of the card.

Here is the second card, with the pattern papers reversed.

I forgot to wipe the stems off after inking my stamp so I stamped the sentiment and used the word window punch to punch it out.

For the inside of the card the white cardstock is cut at 4 x 5 1/4 with the right corners rounded. The pattern paper is cut at 4 x 1 1/4" and layered onto Kraft card stock cut at 4 x 1 1/2 ", with the bottom right corner rounded.
