Anyways, I made two card sets for a friend of mine for Christmas. She loves to have sets of all purpose cards about and I wanted to try out a new die that I had ordered from Taylored Expressions. I ordered this die some time ago and finally had the chance to work with it.....it is the Colorblock Die Plate and I just am so happy with it. The sets came together really quickly and I can see using this die many, many times. I first made her a set that was pink and then remembered that her favorite color was yellow....so, no problem! I quickly whipped up a yellow set too ;-)
First is the pink set which I just LOVE! This particular color combination is lovely to me....I hope that I have enough paper left to make another set for myself ;-D
The first photo shows what the gift looks like all packaged. I made a simple belly band and then used JustRite stamps for the decorative image as well as the sentiment. I matted the sentiment upon a piece of paper that coordinates with the inside of the card. The band goes around an acrylic card box.
Finally, this is what the inside looked like. Just very simple and clean!
Here is the yellow set....I won't do a walk thru as I followed the same directions as I gave above. I will point out though that I added to both cards sets a bit of coordinating colored pencil to both card sets' chalk sentiment area. I love that little pop of color. I can remember being so pysched when I was younger to be able to use the colored chalk!
Anyways, my friend loved the sets! And, I will for sure be making more of these to have around the house....so easy and so quick! I hope you all are staying warm wherever you may be ;-D
