Cards, Cards & More Cards!

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!

Thanks so much for entering my giveaway. Just wanted to make sure you understood it is a local Philadelphia show (since I see you are not from the area!).

I am so impressed ... 13 cards in one day is a feat! It's been a while since I got out all my scrapbooking stuff and made cards but I think you've inspired me. Nice job!!!
