Card Couture

I had super duper fun playing with one of Lauren Meader’s latest PTI download templates called Card Couture (sorry for the rubbish piccies, photography is NOT my thing)….

I thought the concertina style box would be perfect for storing different occasion cards for those times you get caught short at the last minute!!

There are 5 compartments so I made 4 different occasion cards – Thank You, Birthday, Thinking of You & Get Well (all same style – just different round sentiments), leaving the last compartment for envelopes….

Recipe: Stamps – Around & About Sentiments & Spiral Bouquet / Paper – 2008 Bitty Dot Basics / Cardstock – Vintage Cream & Dark Chocolate / Ink Pads – Dark Chocolate / Ribbon – Luxe Satin Vintage Cream / Vintage Buttons – Dark Chocolate & Vintage Cream White Mix / Other – Martha Stewart Edge Punch, SU! Punch, Prima Flowers, Sizzix Leaf Die, Quickutz Label Die

The children are staying with my parents this week so lots of playtime for me lol (how terrible am I?!!) Thanks so much for looking & have a wonderful day 🙂
