Just a few cards I made this weekend. In December, the Paper Pumpkin was a calendar - individual pages for each month on a nice wire easel. So what to do with those pages after the month has ended? I couldn't just throw them away. February was on a beautiful background of violets.
So, I removed the month which was adhered with dimensionsals and that left a couple torn spots on the paper. No problem - I just had to arrange my card so those were covered.
For this one I used Blackberry Bliss and Old Olive as they seemed to match the card. Pretty simple but love the colors.
While I was playing I wanted to try a card based on one I saw on Pinterest. The original had used a pale pink, medium pink and dark pink. I couldn't come up with a combination of pinks that I liked and tried with Calypso Coral and Crisp Cantaloupe and liked those together.
The ribbon is from Sale-a-bration several years ago - Calypso Coral and Lucky Limeade.
Here is my version of the pleat card. I have seen lots of these on Pinterest and decided it was time to try it. Very easy and looks nice. This one will be traveling around the Midwest in a Round Robin Shoebox party. I will make up kits for 6 other cardmakers and send them to the first person. She will make one of my cards and add her own kits to the box - then send to #3. #3 will make the 2 cards in the box and add her own - and so on until #7 receives the box. She will make my card (last kit) and all the others and add her own to the box before sending it to me. When I receive it, I will have 6 card kits to make some beautiful cards and will add a new card kit. Wonder how long we can keep that going?
