Got Scraps?? make some cards

I made this set of note cards for my Hostess this past weekend.  

The card box is cased from one that Lauren Meader made.  I did not purchase her template- I was able to figure the box out by looking at it.  Can't say I was that lucky with any of her other templates.  She is super talented.
these are flat note cards.  each base is 4-1/4 x 5-1/2.  the whisper white layer is just a bit smaller at 4 x 5-1/4.  I took some scraps I had a TON of long skinny strips.  I trimmed the DSP to 5" x 3/4" and made these:  there are 2 of each.


I cased these from Michelle Wooderson.  You can see her's HERE.
these are a great way to use of those strips of Designer paper that you always think you will use but never do.  Hmmmm I am thinking I may need to make this a category.  Everyone's Got Scraps!!

NOTE: I lost my creativity a week or so ago and the only way I have been able to create anything at all is to case. (copy and selectively edit) I hope you don't mind.  I have a few new items coming.  thank goodness my creativity is back and flowing again!

Recipe:
Stamps:  Lovely Letters, Polka Dot Punches, Sweet little Sentiments
Paper:  Raspberry Tart, Rose red, Kiwi kiss, whisper white
Ink:  Rose red, Kiwi Kiss
Accessories:  Rose Red 1" wise double stitched Ribbon, circle punches

Love it, and what a great gift! Is the box all one piece or is it a belly band at the end?
Are you willing to share your box dimensions?
Completely understand, if not!
Happy day~

These are great! I love Mish's notecards and what your take on them is! Monograms are a weakness of mine!

Great job and good idea for little scraps. I loved the little box too. I'd love info on that!

Amber Chapman said...

My thought is....If people don't want their items to be "cased" then they shouldn't post them!! I think it is a wonderful form a flattery and I am never ashamed to admit to my classes if I have "borrowed" a card design. I think I would honestly not get anything done if I didn't get inspiration from somewhere.....and you are one of the top on my "daily check" list Jill....keep up the wonderful work.
PS, I would love your dimensions for the box too...if you are sharing :0)

I love your "case"! I conqure with others as well! Don't post if you don't want to be "borrowed." Thanks for always inspiring me! Can you share the "how to's" to your version of the box? I can't seem to figure it out, but have tons of scraps I would love to use!

I love these! What a great idea for the scrap DSP pieces. I have a bunch of skinny ones lying around too. Thanks for sharing.
