Postcard Perfect Product Bundle

Product Description

__________________________________________________________________________________
Today I would like to share with you my projects which features the Postcard Perfect Paper Packet available exclusively throughout May 2018 for National Scrapbooking Month. 

For my swap card at our consultant training/fun day last month, I made this "FUN" card. We make 5 cards the same and then swap to get 5 different cards. To make my card, I used Smoothie Cardstock as the base 4 x 5.25 and then some of the Postcard Perfect Paper at 3.75 x 5 inches. Then I used the Thin Cuts—Block Alphabet to cut the word FUN out of the paper. I stuck the words back slightly offset with 3-D Foam TapeIts hard to see in this photo, the 3D nature of the word. I put a white pennant flag at the top with "this calls for" title which is from Workshops Your Way® Cheers to You Cardmaking Kit.

I had lots of scraps of paper after cutting out the 5 of the above cards. So I made the next cards with the scraps all from one sheet of paper. 

The next one I used Peacock Cardstock to line the card and used scraps of the above paper and then the zip strip across. To finish the card I used the Thin Cuts—Basic Tags and Peacock Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad to stamp the "Thanks Friend" from the Beautiful Friendship Cardmaking Stamp + Thin Cuts and then I used a Round Sponge to ink the edges also in Peacock. I put the Tag on with 3-D Foam Tape. Then the Peacock coloured ribbon (with peacock coloured dots) is from the Enchantment Ribbon Pack.

My last card is also using the scraps from the other cards, the paper and reverse side of paper, the Peacock Cardstock and more Smoothie Cardstock to matt and to cut out the  Thin Cuts—Block Alphabet.

I played with the THANK YOU letters heaps to work out the best way to put them on the lines, I stared at it so many times I started to wonder if I had spelt the words right... I decided on a random alignment.

  1. I never thought of staggering my letters on a card. I'll be casing that idea!

    1. Thanks Kara, I played and played with it, 50 different places on the card, looking for the best placement. Lining it all up straight on the top line made it look really stark, so I decided to stagger them.
