This week the challenge is to make Quick and Easy Card Gift Sets!
Who doesn't love to receive a gift set of cards all neatly packaged up? The team was challenged show you samples of some quick, easy, but still FAB cards in coordinated sets presented in a Clear Box for a real WOW factor! Tie on a bow, add a belly band -- whatever strikes your fancy!
I started out by making a quick and easy Christmas card and then used THE SAME layout to make a trio of birthday cards. You know as stampers, we like to make all kinds of cool "go where life takes you" kind of cards, but let's face it, when friends and family ask for cards -they are always BIRTHDAY! Aren't they?!?
Here is the Christmas card. The cutie Christmas paper is by KaiserCraft, Be Merry, sentiment from JustRite Stampers, Christmas Nested Frames, silver cord and rhinestones and a poinsettia prima to top it off!
Each of the birthday cards uses the same layout, I just changed the flower accent and pattern paper. The birthday sentiment is from Clearly Wordsworth, Everyday Greetings. This card uses Basic Grey, Curio, Prima Fairytale rose in Coral, 1/8" silk ribbon and rhinestones.
This one uses Basic Grey, Marjolaine, Prima Trellis Rose in Fontaine, silver cord and rhinestones.
This one uses Cosmo Cricket, DeLovely, Prima Trellis Rose in Fontaine, silver cord and rhinestones.
Here is the pic of them all packaged in a clear box! You can dress these up as elaborate or simple as you want. If sending to a crafter, I use all kinds of ribbons and flowers, but to a non-crafter (where the packaging will likely end up in the trash) I go with some simple silver elastic cord. The poinsettia flower matches the Christmas card.
I have to admit, the prima flowers I used on these cards are REALLY poofy! Here is a side view of them stuffed in the box. It bulges a bit, but who cares? lol!
