One of the challenges at Splitcoaststampers.com last week was to make a little Lunch Box Card or a little Artist Trading Card to stick into a lunch box to remind our little ones we love them and are thinking about them. But this could also be for a dear hubby - just to remind him that you're thinking about him when he's not around.
I have this cool new stamp from Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps of a King of Hearts Playing Card - I think it's so neat!!! I stamped him with Stampin' Up! Chocolate Craft Ink onto a piece of designer paper. Added a little color with a gold paint pen and a SU Baroque Burgundy Marker.
This is like working with a tiny scrapbook page - it measures 2-3/4 by 4-1/4. Dress it up with some ribbon, flowers and a little hardware and you have a little piece of creative artwork.
The card is cut lengthwise from an 8-1/2 X 11 piece of cardstock - you cut it 4-1/4" wide then fold in half creating a top folded card. The top of the card fits perfectly in a Cuttlebug Embossing Folder. Make a few of these and then you can just grab them when you need a card in a hurry. Place a large flower in the center of the card with a simple sentiment underneath and you're good to go!!
