Book Page Envelopes #2

Here's another set of book page envelopes I made - this time using a Little Golden book called:
The Little Red Caboose.
Instead of gluing the sides of these, I sewed a zig zag seem up the side with my sewing machine.
I also made little one layer train cards to tuck inside with my message. 
I'm using them in the Shelter: Postmarked Ministry.
To view the first set I made (in a Winnie the Pooh theme) click here.

 Here's a mini notecard freebie I made in this theme.

Torn Paper Flowers

Here's a set of torn paper flower cards I made to use for 
I ran my cardstock through the paper crimper to break down the fibers so I could separate the layers.
The next step was tearing the now thin and soft paper into gradient circles to make my flowers.
I added some little pearls to the center and attached it to a paper crimped tag.

Supplies and Tools: Paper Crimper (Fiskers), Script Embossing Folder (Provo Craft),
 Pearls, Misc. Cardstock, Everyday Compliments Die (Die-Versions)

CAS Geometric Design

The clean and simple challenge this week is
to use geometric design in your card.
I'm not naturally a CAS card creator
so it's a challenge I enjoy participating in!
 After making one for the challenge
 I made another card a little less CAS than the first. 
The design reminds me of a quilt.

Supplies and Tools: White, Kraft, Teal, Red Cardstock, Teal/Red Pigment Ink, Baker's Twine, Guidelines (Papertrey Ink)

Sew Thankful


Here's a sewing themed set of "thank you" cards I've already used up thanking friends for the surprise service of appreciate (complete with gifts!) they gave us this past Sunday!

A  paper doily, some buttons, and a few stamped images from Sew Special stamp set (Cardmaking and Papercraft) complete the look. 
 The white background is embossed with my Scallops embossing folder from Sizzix.
