A Few Cards

Inspired by a combination of Shimelle's challenges on her blog over the weekend and her additional input via the Pretty Paper Party class, I've made quite a few cards recently :) Here are some of them:

A leftover scrap of Crate Paper (Farmhouse Collection), with a matching circle punched from another scrap and raised up on foam pads. It doesn't show but the apples are all covered in Glossy Accents. Greeting will be added later when I know what occasion I want to use it for!

Another scrap of Crate Paper, with several matching pieces cut from another scrap and raised as before and with a button added. Again, I'll add the greeting when I'm ready to use the card.

The circle is just stitched fairly roughly a couple of times, then filled with colourful buttons from my extensive collection!

One of my favourite card designs is to create a little pocket then fill it with strips with greetings printed, stamped or stuck onto them. These are scraps of My Mind's Eye and - not sure where the other little piece came from... The stickers are DCWV.

A woven card using up scraps from various papers, including Crate Paper, Fancy Pants and Lily Bee. The stickers are American Crafts.

Always handy to have a few more cards in stock :)

Cute cards! I have a mental list of cards and layouts I want to make for this class, but it's all going to have to wait now until I get back from visiting Sarah.

I have so enjoyed seeing all the layouts & cards you were inspired to make as part of the Pretty Paper Party!

So glad to "see" you stop by my blog this week. I'm in the same boat right now, trying to keep up with some blog reading (& a little bit of crafting) in the midst of a busy schedule. Your Nov 6 photo "Choice" made me want a snack! :>)

Good idea to make them and wait to see what you will use them for, before adding a greeting!
