Gift Giving-JustRite

Happy Tuesday to You all! I've been trying to get papers used that have set in my studio for quite some time! Today's creation uses an oldie but goodie, Cosmo Cricket's set, Storytime. I love the two sided paper and added punch outs in their kits. I have two of four cards/matching envelopes to show you today. The set will be packaged and tagged with a personalized touch for a holiday gift. More on that later!
Using punch outs I embellished the inside of the cards too. The envelopes are made utilizing my new Scor-it A-2 Envelope-it! I purchased mine from Sharon Johnson's Stamp Simply store (click on tabs on top of page to view products)! It was a snap to use! I placed a thin strip of scor tape (purchased mine at Joan's Gardens, products listed on left side bar) on inside envie flap edge so it can be sealed!
JustRite's new set, Just A Note Centers & Borders is perfect for creating versatile all occasion cards. I chose the Just A Note center because it can be used for just about any card wish one would want to send. This set is used with the round 1 5/8" wooden stamper. This set is also available in a custom design Cardmaking kit, complete with a 392 piece font set. All new November release products are available for purchase on Friday, November 13.
My second card! Totally different look. The blue frame is an actual punch out from the paper set. Adhesive pearl was colored with my YR09 Copic marker to coordinate with paper.
Inside peek of the card. Simple, but so nice! Paper is light enough to write any message and coordinates so well!
Close up of the stamped image and colored pearl. All paper edges were lightly touched with Tim Holtz's Distress Ink, Old paper.
Simple card layouts, with matching envelopes create wonderful gifts, not only for the holidays, but the whole year through. One gift down...so many more to go!
I have oral surgery today! Nothing big, but will put me under the weather for a couple days! Ugh...
I so appreciate you stopping by today! Take good care and make it a terrific Tuesday!
