July Shoebox Card night

What a great night we had tonight!!  Thanks everyone for coming and for sharing your talents and ideas with us!!  And we missed a couple of the regulars... Dulce and Anita and hope you can join us next month!

Here's my card.. Inspired by a card sent to me by Pat Pobst!  

The card is 10x4 and scored at 2 and 6.  I trimmed just a smidge off the 4x4 so it was easier to tuck under the flap.  Then we took a 2 flower punch from the side and tried to punch it halfway on the line.  Added a flower cut on the cricut and a cute saying and a flourish!  Such fun!

Next is Julie's amazing card!  it starts with a 4x11 piece of cardstock and score at .5, 2, 4, 5.5.  another piece of cardstock 3x5.5 and score at .5 and 2.  Attach b&t paper to front and back.  Put adhesive on half inch strip.  Adhere the large part of the smaller piece to the box and then put glue on the half inch strip again.  then decorate.  Fabulous card Jules!!

Kathy loved colored pencils and flowers!  We had a great time coloring our pansies and they all looked so different!  Love this card!!

Lori's lovely tree card... What fun!  It's a great masculine card and love the muted tones!  She also suggested that this would make a good sympathy card as well... just change the greeting!!

Melani's amazing 3-D card.  We stamped our own back ground and she had the cards pre scored for us (2 1/8, 3 1/8, 5 1/4, 6 3/8) and it folds up to equal 5.5x4.25.  one important tip about mounting the bear is to close the card as it is sized to 4.25 and needs to line up with the card so it will fit in an envelope.  Very nice card Melani... and she had the bear stamped for us.  And Roxxie Shared her resin flowers with us!!

Roxxie, it was nice to have you join us again!!  What a fun card...  the strips were pre cut for us!  We had a choice of flower colors and added a strip for the stem and knotted ribbon for the leaves.  So sweet and simple!  Lovely!

Shannon joined us tonight too!  She loved this saying and was excited to fine assorted papers and to go along with it!  We have fun creative play with this card and stamps and papers!!  all the cards were fun and different!!  So glad you came!  and we had fun with this card!

Ladies you are all amazing!  Thanks for coming and sharing your talents!  Our next meeting will be Tuesday August 4th!  See you then!!
