Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop - Card Sets

Welcome to the October 2018 Edition of the Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop, featuring Card Sets! You'll see projects from stampers from around the world--I'm in Colorado Springs, Colorado. (Note: I can only sell to customers in the US, so any prices are in USD)

We generally hop the first Friday of each month, and the theme for this month is to create Card Sets. My project features coordinating products from the Share What You Love Suite.
(see specific Product Purchase Links below the Blog Roll)

I used the Share What You Love Designer Series Paper, the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit, and some coordinating cardstock to create a set of 4 cards (plus envelopes) and a holder. The stationery box is pretty straightforward, just some trimming and folding, and then I used Tear & Tape Adhesive in just a couple of places to adhere the edges.

When I make my stationery box, I like to orient it so the 3-1/2" flap folds over the top. That way it goes down just a wee bit lower, and my ribbon or twine can go a little lower than center. You don't have to untie this twine to get into the box, the flap will just slide out...then slide back under the twine again to close it.

All the die cut tags/labels you see on the cards are from the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit, as well as the little metal rose embellishments, the tiny paper clips, and both the striped and the pearlized white twine.

For this one with the leafy background, I tied the twine/string in a knot instead of a bow. I think it leaves the card a little more masculine, for those times you want to tell a manly man how amazing he is!

I was originally going to do ALL the cards on Crumb Cake Cardstock bases, but the flowery paper pattern already had a Crumb Cake background. I wanted the layers to stand out a little more, so that's when I decided to add the Rich Razzleberry Cardstock to the mix.

Then I just went ahead and used the Rich Razzleberry Cardstock behind the greeting layer on this card, too. If you'll notice, several of the cards have rounded corners. The stationery box also has rounded corners, even on the corners inside. The Detailed Trio Punch is perfect for this! But, you can also leave all the edges straight if you're looking to conserve on your supplies.
