If you can get past the bad lighting and photography (I really need to speak with that photographer), this pack of cards is made from the fronts of a 6-pack of cards I got in the $1 bin. I cut off the fronts, and made this set of 5 (one of the card fronts was damaged.) They are glossy, and a real pretty green with blue designs on them and some swirls in the background.
I rummaged through my Box of Blue Ribbon and managed to find one that went okay with the blue in the card and the Blue Bayou card base I chose to go with it.
To make the faux buttons, I stuck a piece of retired Outlaw DS paper to a piece of cardboard, punched it out, punched two 1/8" holes in it, then tied it to the long piece of ribbon with another shorter piece of ribbon.
The sentiment is the same one I used earlier (so of course it was still out) from the SU Thank You Kindly set. I stamped it with Stazon, since the patterned paper has a glossy finish.
This is a box of 6 I made from the card backs, where I needed to trim off the bottom a little, so the pieces are a little smaller.
Not bad, not bad. I used a $1 6-pack of cards, half a spool of ribbon from the stash, made faux buttons ... the only real 'expensive' part was the use of 6 pieces of now-retired Blue Bayou card stock, and my supply is dwindling. So sad.
Well, back to my stamping spot to see what other creations I can cook up. Thanks for stopping by!
