February Shoebox Cards

Hi Everyone... 

Well, our numbers were small due to the great storm... that really wasn't... Thanks to those who ventured out and joined us!  And we were excited to have a guest as well!  Thanks for joining us Cindy:)

Here's our creations for the night!!

Sympathy card
this card featured the colors whisper, slate and twilight.  the stamp sets used are C1559 always grateful (tree), D1544 distressed backgrounds (burlap texture) and C1524 Words of comfort (words) and washi tape
How fun is this... background dust that has heart in it, washi tape, and the words be mine... Lovely... 
mine was done horizontally but others did it vertically... 

Julie's creation
Who knew what a 8.5 x 8.5 square of white cardstock could become.  First we created the envelope by marking our paper at 3.25, then turn the paper a quarter turn and mark at 5.25.  Then score between those two marks. repeat on the opposite sides creating the longer flap.  

Next put the short edge at 2.5 and score... (lines will overlap) and then do the other side.  Cut out the corners, round corner and cut a 1.5 inch slit about 1.5 from the fold. and decorate as desired.
open decorated with cards (Julie provided the corner and the hearts
cut from a cricut cartridge 

Cards fit inside

and the back
Some retired stamps were used  to embellish (D1193 vintage valentine, C1441 Affection, and C1473 remarkable wreath.) Ink used is Cotton Candy.  

Also, used the download and created the mini cards.  This might be my hubby's card this year:)

thanks for stopping by:)  feel free to leave a comment or a question:)
