More Cards

Hi Everyone!

Lately I have been in such a card making mood and I can't explain why.  So, while making lots and lots of cards I thought I would stretch myself a bit and make long and slender cards; a step away from the popular A2 - 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 size cards.  This first card measures 8 3/4 x 3 3/4.  I took a sheet of kraft card stock 8 3/4 x 7 1/2, folded it in half and got to decorating.  I thought I would try a block color card that could be used for a man or a woman. I don't think it turned out too shabby.

 The sentiment on the front of the cards reads, "You can pick your friends, and you can pick your nose, but you can't pick your friend's nose."  This silly little sentiment had me rolling on the floor laughing.  I printed the sentiment onto some vellum in brown and used my 2-way glue pen to adhere it to the white card stock.

In between the blocks of yellow and green I placed a chocolate ribbon and then I added faux white stitching with my white gel pen around the perimeter of the card and some white brads to each corner.

This card I made in a similar fashion.  The layout of the card is inspired by Sara Wisboo @  This specific design I saw her do on her Youtube channel  I just adore her talent.  I used paper from Basic Grey: Stella Ruby collection & pink, green and white card stock.  I added white flat-back pearls to each corner. Around the pattern paper I wrapped a white satin ribbon.

This card measures 8 1/2 x 3 3/4.  I used a piece of white card stock as my base measuring 8 1/2 x 7 1/2 and folded it in half.  Then I added lots of layers.

I can't quite decide for what occasion to use this card.  What do you think; a thank you, miss you, get well?  Let me know what you think.  

Until next time everybody!

<3 & hugs,

Both of these are really nice. I think the sentiment is so cute and the flower card sooooo pretty. I have never though to make a card that size. What a wonderful idea.
