May 2013 - Creative Cards

Get ready to have some fun creative time with balloons, cupcakes, rosettes and a bunch of really fun patterned papers. If you have any questions or are missing any pieces (it happens sometimes) please email me and i'll help you out right away. :)

This month I had a great time creating with these distressed flashcard sentiments. I've also included several printed flag type embellishments on the sentiments page. Be careful when cutting these as some are for two cards. I've added both gray and aqua ink to edges of my papers.

All of the cards this month have coordinating sentiments for the inside of the cards. **With the exception of the white card (we had to have one blank for all you "wordy" letter writers). If you don't like the sentiment just trim it out, flip it over and use the backside.

Card 1 - Fold kraft cardstock in half and attach patterned paper. Cut Aqua patterned rectangle from sentiments page and attach with pop dots. Trim and attach flashcard sentiments as shown. Attach balloons with pop dots and draw the strings in with a pen. Tie a bow with half of the red twine and attach. This card has a white envelope and a printed sentiment.
