Making the 16 cards that comprise the Tin of Cards was fun!  You really need to try it.  Between the instructions that come with the kit and watching the video yesterday’s post, it’s smooth sailing.

One hint:  I did the bases of all of the cards before I started on the embellishments.  This is my favorite card “just because”.

Polka Dots  & Butterflies
I love the cute squiggly stamp image that’s at the top, bottom and back (you can’t see that one) of the card and then also on the envelope.

Polka Dots  & ButterfliesIt’s a little easier to see the clear polka dotted window sheet in this photo.  It’s adhered to the inside of the card.  I moved the butterflies around on each card, looking for the ‘perfect placement’.

The rest of the cards can be seen in the 2015-2016 catalog, p. 152, but………seeing them in your hands is so much better.   Part of the kit is a collection of circular greetings in English, French and German and I can’t wait to send this card to our former exchange student’s mom for her September birthday.  The whole Luebke family (Altenholz) has remained an extended part of our California family.

I’ll be having a “Tin” class in my stampin’ studio August 19th and a class in Dublin on a to-be-determined date.  And in the meantime, if you aren’t coming to either of those classes

(1) Why not schedule one OR

(2) Order your own Tin of Cards right here and have some fun in your stampin’ space.

After you finish your 16 cards you’ll have room for more in your tin.  How neat and tidy!

Have a great evening.  It’s HOT where I am and I’m pretty much lovin’ it.  Dinner on the deck, windows open, ceiling fans running.  It’s just plain relaxing.  Thanks for stopping in.
