So cute I’d carry it!

School is in full swing and I miss the days I could craft from dawn till dusk day in and day out.  One of the things I created over my most recent break were cards cards and more cards.  The one I’m featuring in this post came from yet another Splitcoast Stampers tutorial.  Man I love that place.  Anyway, I created this card for my Visiting Teaching Companion to thank her for being awesome.  The tutorial for it can be found here, my version is below.

Gotta love UTEE!

I used Core’dinations paper.  The Gemstones line in black for the wallet itself.  Chipboard, ribbon, and prima flower accents.  I lined the inside but forgot to take a picture of it.  The paper must have been pink and blue because that’s what color the embellishments are on the front.  Then I paper pierced and hand-sewed the edges to give it added dimension.  I used UTEE for the embossing powder and it gave my wallet a look of patent leather.  Until I gave my Visiting Teaching Companion the card, she thought it was my wallet :D!!! Oh yeah I almost forgot…I also cut a layered card (pink blue and white) to fit inside and wrote a little thank you note to my Companion.  The wallet is closed with industrial Velcro because I couldn’t find the cute little magnets shown in the tutorial and video.


Double Pocket Card

If you read my blog roll, you’ll see that Splitcoast Stampers is at the top.  It’s one of my all time favorite blogs.  I love to check out their resources and try my hands at some new projects.  One of them that has become a favorite is the Beate’s double pocket card tutorial.  It was the perfect card for sending one of the sisters I Visit Teach this month’s message.  The inside of the card below is just layered rectangles of the paper used on the front and a hand-written message to the recipient.  I don’t remember who makes the colored paper, it was in a variety pack of loose sheets, but the printed paper comes from DCWV Stack 6.
