Card Crop Batch #3

Carla's 3rd Card:
This card is 5x7.

Pretty simple card that is easy to make. The pp is 6 3/4 x 4 3/4.

Embellishments are the rectangle image and a couple of flowers. I added 2 leaves under the flowers and put some stickles around the edges. Three little beads finished off the flower.

The rub-on sentiments that came with this kit are excellent for cards!

Jules' 3rd Card:
Keeping it simple.....

Layers...I like layers!

I used one of the bases that were in the kit for the card base!

Cut strip of black cardstock 2x 5.5, red patterned paper 1.75 x 5.25, white cardstock 1.5 x 3.75, 3 1.25 x 1.25 squares from black cardstock and 3 1x1 squares from coordinating patterned paper.

Ink edges, assemble as shown, use pop dots for 3 small squares to add dimension. Stamp sentiment, add bow with ribbon from kit!
Lee's 3rd Card:


1. Cut a piece of patterned paper 5 1/2" X 3 1/2".
2. Lightly tac down the patterned paper to the card face and punch a circle in the bottom right hand corner of the card and patterned paper at the same time.
3. Remove patterned paper and attach a ribbon to the left edge of the patterned paper.
4. Attach patterned paper to your card.
5. Cut a circle from circle patterned paper and punch a hole directly in the middle of the circle. Attach the cut out circle to the punched our circle on the card.

6. Cut a Santa circle and mount on cardstock circle. Place behind the cut out circle card front.
7. Add flowers.
8. Add a word rub-on to white cardstock, ink edges and mount to a coordinating piece of cardstock. Attach to card front.

Pump it UP!

Michelle's 3rd Card:
This little card is an oldie but goodie. Used this style for my youngest's birth announcement 5 years ago. They whip up faster than you think and pack an impressive punch!

2) Cut patterned mat: 4" x 5 1/4" and adhere to base
