A very belated thank you card!

This week we are challenged to make a “thank you” card.  I made one a couple of weeks ago for my best friend, my partner, at the beauty salon from this same die set.  This one is for someone I have never met.  He is the son in law of one of my weekly 92yrs. young, salon customers.  HE LOVES TO BAKE!  Every week he brings a batch of something he has baked to his mother in law!  (mostly cookies)  Every week, she brings me and my partner at the salon, each, a zip baggie with 2 cookies in them.  We always assumed she was just sharing what he gave her.  When I thanked her this week for sharing what her son in law makes for her she said, “Did I give you the impression that I am sharing my cookies with you?  He sends these every week specifically packaged for the two of you for your 15 yrs. of making the women of the WW2 generation still feel beautiful!”  WOW!

There really are angels walking among us!  He’s been doing this for years and we never knew!  So this is the “THANK YOU!” card that this man should have gotten a long time ago, but finally will.

The Steps:

Step 1: Using Karen Burniston’s: 1023 – Tag Book Pop Up 

Tag Book Pop-upDepending upon the theme you’re going for with this set, choose the designer cardstock you will use for the large die pc.  I recommend a double sided cardstock.  The one I chose is black and white (for a man).  It had black and white stripes on one side and white hearts on a black background on the other.  I chose the stripes for the outside and the hearts for the inside.

Click on the product link and it will take you, not only to the product, but also the assembly video.  I recommend that you watch the video to not only know how to assemble this pop up, but also to help you choose papers/cardstock for your project.  This set has 17 dies in it!  All the little circle frames, and everything on this project except the “Baker” themed dies are from this set.

Step 2:  The cute little “baker” themed inside décor pcs. are from these two die sets:

1277 – Kitchen Tools

The other one is an older and discontinued Karen Burniston die set called:

1100 – Props 8-7 die set:

1100 props

All the pieces were cut out of white cardstock and colored with Copic Markers except for the oven mittens cut from the stripe side of the “double side”, the “whisk and the fork” cut from silver mirror cardstock, and the one red/white polka dot platter from scrap cardstock.

The 3 “Thank You”‘ sentiments on the front of the card is from this set:  I have no idea who makes or made these, but I bought them on “Craft Day” from one of the shopping networks years ago and cut them out with red cardstock.

C4C – 449 Make it Masculine!

C4C - 449

Good Morning Crafty Friends!  The challenge for this week is to make a card for a male.  It does not say it HAS to be an adult male.  The youngest male in my family is my one and only male grandchild and he is 14!  He thinks he is grown up!  He is, however, a really sweet young man who, believe it or not, still loves to spend a weekend with his Grammy!

THE STEPS:

(Products I used and links are listed below at the end)

Step 1:  Create a base card by scoring a 8.5 x 11″ piece of white cardstock at 5.5″ on the long side.  Fold over for a book fold card.  Trim to 5 x 7″.

Step 2:  Cut a pc. of designer cardstock that measures 4.75 x 6.75″ and adhere to the front of the white base card, centering it for a 1/8″ border on all 4 sides.

Step 3:  Cut Suzanne Cannon “Happy Birthday” for Elizabeth Craft Designs. (Link at end) from silver mirror cardstock.

Step 4:  I used an older Karen Burniston’s die set (no longer available) called “Clock and Gears”.  I cut both gears from silver mirror cardstock.  I also used the little circles that are the negative pcs. that come out of the larger gear to add here and there.

Step 5:  Adhere the “Birthday” sentiment, gears and little circles as shown.  Here’s one more look:
