Card Club - July 3, 10, & 11, 2012

This card was inspired by Cheryl Garratt, and Cheryl's very creative blog can be found at  This card uses the Kindness Matters and En Francais stamp sets, the Framed Tulip Embossing Folder, and the Beautiful Wings Embosslit.  The base card uses pacific point card stock, and the background paper is daffodil delight stamped with early espresso.  The Kindness Matters stamp set is stamped on the ivory paper with the early espresso, and the butterflies have been colored in with the colored pencils.  In addition to the border sheet of early espresso around the ivory paper, I also sponged a bit of early espresso around the edges of the ivory paper. 

This card uses the Open Sea and Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp sets.  The base card is crumb cake card stock topped with a piece of night of navy that has been embossed with the stripes embossing folder.  The ship log was stamped on crumb cake card stock using night of navy ink and framed with a piece of real red card stock.  The globe was stamped on the whisper white card stock prior to stamping over the top with the night of navy.  I used the modern label punch to provide the real red background for the sentiment, and the sentiment was stamped with night of navy on whisper white prior to using the word window punch.  Circle punches were also used after stamping the ship and anchor.   I also used a piece of baker's twine at the top of the log and threaded it through the anchor circle.

The third card we will do for the card club will be the graduation card that I posted on June 23.

I have room at my house on July 11 if anyone that is not a club member would like to join us to make cards. The cost is $10, and I just ask that you bring your own adhesive and let me know that you will be coming. Thank you!
