Creative Cards August

Happy August Everyone! Wow is the summer really flying by and with the heat we are having (and the huge A/C bill that will be coming) I'm not feeling too sad that fall is on the way. Hope you enjoy this months cards. So lets get started.

First off there are several sized pieces with the same patterned paper. I would recomment laying out all your cards and find out which pieces go to which card. Also when tying your cards with the salmon and cream seam binding, reserve enough to use for your tags.

Card #1- Make sure you find the pink gingham with the stamped image on it and attach it to the white card base. Refer to the photo below and attach your sentiment ( you can choose the one i've shown or the other one that looks the same on the sentiments page. Then tie a small bow with the aqua ribbon and attach the three buttons. I filled the center of one button with glitter. Ink edges of card if desired. This card has a white envelope.

To make the fold for the sentiment first fold the paper back and then forward again as shown in the close up. Then trim the edges of the sentiment to a point.
