My best friend Claire is an incedible card maker and after a phone chat the other day she sent me a picture of a super cute Birthday card she had made. It inspired me for a day of card making and this is what I came up with!
Asher has a lot of little buddies with birthdays coming up so I decided to make a mini stack of Robot Cards! I made six cards just because that's what I could equally cut the polka-dot paper into! It was a lot of cutting and stamping but so worth it! I love how they came out!
Next I figured I might as well use the circles I had cut out of the card stock to make something else so 5 super easy "Thank You" cards were made! I stuck the Thank You circles on random polka-dots for each card. You can't tell in the pictures but I used sponge stickies to raise the Thank you circle up off the page directly over a polka-dot. Give it a simple but neat effect in person.
This Birthday card came via trial and error. I was originally going to use this stamp for the previous cards but didn't like how it came out with the boarder so I cut it down layered it with a flower, stuck a brad in it and called it good! I think it came out pretty!
Then lastly I made a unique card for my friends Daughter who's birthday party was that night. She is the most adorable tom boy you've ever met and I knew I needed a cool card for her! I used an Amy Butler embellishment with the same circle stamp from the previous card.
And that's it! 13 cards in one day! It's definitely a record for me! I'm excited about having a little stock pile though and think in the future I'll make cards in batches like this again! Once you decide on a design it goes quick to multiply it, I had hardly any scraps of paper left over and now have cards ready for events I forget about making a card for! Perfect!
