From Make & Take to Club Project and Texas Tax-Free Weekend!

Chevron Bag of CardsAt the Stampin’ Up! Convention a few weeks ago, one of our make & takes was this adorable bag full of cards.  I thought it would make an excellent project for my August Stamping Clubs, so I modified it a bit to include only 4 cards instead of 5 and I wanted to use the new Crumb Cake note card envelopes, so I changed the cards slightly.  Here are the 4 cards.

Hello Lovely Arrow card-001 Hello Lovely card 3-001 Hello Lovely card 4-001 Hellow Lovely card 2-001

They all feature the stamp set, Hello Lovely.  I also added 2 words from the stamp set, A Dozen Thoughts.  I think that may be my favorite new word set.  It has such cute greetings and fonts!

    Amy, these are ADORABLE! I love the change to the CC – it looks really perfect! This was my fave M&T from convention, but the cute little touches you added made it even more awesome…

    • Thank you so much Heather! I knew using the panels of white card stock would make it less stressful for my club members since they wouldn’t have to worry about stamping it perfect directly onto the card front. Plus, I like a little dimension. 🙂
