The Card A Day Challenge Team did some packs of cards that can be done very quickly and are always a great gift.
First we have Robbie who made these classic black & white cards
with a matching box -
Here is a cute gift for anyone who might be on your list at this time of year. I created my card box using Basic Black card stock. The designer series paper is It’s My Party Designer Series Paper Stack from last year. The Banner Framelits were used to add some interest. A large faceted button was threaded with Mint Macaron and Black baker’s twine and a bow was tied. It was added to the banner with glue dots.
To make my cards I used Basic Black, Tip Top Taupe, and Whisper White for the card bases. I used the Go Wild Designer Series paper stack for the patterned paper. I kept the design simple to make them appeal to everyone. I used a variety of sentiments to add to the front of my card. These were punched with punches I had or I just rounded the corners. Some of the cards have a matching ribbon and some have some enamel dots added. A cute set that would make a great gift!
Gracie made a great set with some soft colors-
I received a coloring card sentiment set for my birthday. Absolutely love it! Was the best thing to make a card set to give as a gift! They are colored with Spectrum Noir pencils (they have very soft lead and work best with a Spectrum Noir pencil sharpener). ~ Gracie
Now Denise makes a set of color-your-own cards-
I decided to make some cards for those who were into the adult coloring craze. This way they could have cards to send and by coloring, give them their own touch before sending them on their way. I just took plain white cards and stamped with Versafine Ink. I did use some heat embossing powder on a couple of them to see if it would be easier for the person doing the coloring. I tried to choose images that would give them lots to color. The stamps included Stampin' Up -Swallowtail; Unity - Midnight Kisses; Club Scrap - Stamping Star; and Unity - Pretty as a Peacock. To make it even quicker, I just tied the cards and envelopes with a ribbon and added some markers tied up with the same ribbon. This was super quick and I thought they came out great. - Denise
