June Card Club

Oh my we had such a good time at card club this month! It was so good to see everyone! Sometimes these months go so slow and seems forever before I see my friends! I love them all so much.

I just wanted to share a few of the cards we made this month! I really made them work!  They are all very patient with me and my card ideas!

Don't you just love the Jubliee (X7181B) paper pack??? There are so many options with this paper! Here is the one we did!

Their cards actually had a red ribbon with a yellow circle where mine is blue, and they used some of the red gingham paper instead of the zip strip. They were so much prettier. But I do like mine too!

This fun little birthday card is what I refer to as a 'tucker'! It is small, 3 1/2" x 3" finished size. Just the right size to tuck in a gift bag, tuck in your husband or child's lunch box, or a jacket pocket or even a suitcase!!! Therefore the name "tucker".
I hope you can see the chevron pattern on both the white and the red paper. They were put in the embossing folder in different directions to give it a little different dimension. And of course the sanding makes the white core stand out.

This is one of my favorites. We used the chevron stamp from the hostess set 'Doodle Signs', and the use of only three colors.
I put the colors together for them, every two ladies used the same colors (out of the 12 of them, six cards had the same two colors). The trim behind the strip of chevrons was their choice, but did match one of their ink colors. They also got to chose which color to stamp 'Friend' in.

All the cards were a little different and all just beautiful.

And last but not lease - using the June Stamp of the month 'Kaboom' they made this darling round card. Again they sanded the red embossed cardstock to make it look like the stripes of the flag and to make the stars stand out.

What wonderfully creative ladies they are.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed our cards!
