My last cards of the year for our Happy Mail Card Club were two “4 bar” cards. The 4 bar card is smaller than the typical A2, which makes it A1 (3 1/2″ x 4 7/8″). I was inspired by a card Cathy sent me, which had an A1 on top of an A2 card.
First, the owl card – I colored the embossed stickers using Copics and Blendabilities. The wooden “Thanks” is from Stampin’ Up.
The second card was very simple. I used a pre-created tag from Target and stamped “Amazing” on the chalkboard part using Versamagic Cloud White.
Two fun cards for my group. Here is to a wonderful 2016 of Happy Mail Card Club!
Halfway through the year of flow already and it so it is time for the second quarter stash report (prepared before my wedding and honeymoon, of course). I am using a lot of fabric and keeping ahead of my fiber stash, but the yarn stash is on critical alert for the next quarter. More knitting and less buying. Should be easier now that two festivals have come and gone, but still. Even one skein of sock yarn will put me over the edge right now! So glad I have been able to spend lots of time crafting this summer.
