I created this card set yesterday using.....
This pack of patterned paper from Michaels Craft Store!
The paper pack normally sales for $4.00, but right now it is $2.50. It has 5 sheets of each design. This is Michaels "Animal Prints Recollection" series.
All the paper is from Michaels. The card is A2.
Sentiment...I used the Cricut Gel Pens to write the sentiment and then cut it out with scissors. The center is colored with Copic Marker. Ribbon from Michaels
Ribbon Buckle is from my stash. I covered it with tiny black and blue flowers (from Michaels) and added a black rhinestone to the center.
Not sure where I got the rhinestone buckle. The sentiment is drawn with Circut Gel Markers using the Cricut Create. Then the sentiment is cut out using scissors.
The background of the sentiment is inked using the crayon method...shown here...
The ribbon buckle was made using a Spellbinders die "Ribbon Buckles". There are 9 different buckles in this set. I covered the buckle with clear pigment ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. This made the buckle easier to slide the ribbon through without tearing. The flower gem is from "Recollections" at Michaels Craft Store
The butterfly brad is from my stash. I am not sure where I got it.
The ribbon buckle is from the Spellbinders die set "Ribbon Buckles". It has been heat embossed with clear powder. The tiny blue flower is from Michaels Craft Store. The border is a paper punch from EK Success. The sentiment is written using a Circut Gel Pen and the Cricut Create.
Square card...larger than an A2
I put 6 cards in my sets, but there were only 5 different patterned papers. I decided to create a card using all five of the patterns. This is a front opening card that I bought in a package from Joanns Craft Store. You can see how I cut strips of the paper and glued them to a white background. There are slits on either side of the front openings to allow the ribbon to come through on the front.
I glued a layer of white paper to the inside of the card to...
*hide the ribbon and hold the ribbon in place
*provide a place to write a note
The holder of the card set is a small craft bag that I found at Walmart.
I decorated the front. The next step is to package the cards to sell.
Please see this post for more information about the small bag and how I prepare my card sets to sell.
