I am trying to build up a collection of cute little sets of cards that can be mailed off quickly and without a huge postage cost. Minimize the bulk and you will be able to send these at a reasonable price ;)
- Start with a few different colors of cardstock and matching ink pads.
- Cut the colored cardstock to measure 4’ x 5.25”.
- Cut card bases from regular white cardstock to measure 4.25’ x 5.5”. Fold in half and round upper right-hand corner.
- Using a background stamp, stamp each piece of colored cardstock with the coordinating ink. Round upper right corner.
- Pick a focal image stamp. I used the gorgeous WoJ Feather stamp set for my cards. Emboss using white embossing powder.
- Cut vellum strips to measure 2” x 4”. Sew onto your colored cardstock with white thread. I used a zig zag stitch.
- Adhere to the car dbases. Add assorted bling and stamp your sentiment with black ink. I used various sentiments from Whiff of Joy.
- Set aside to dry so that the ink sets and will not smear on the vellum
That’s it. By doing this in assembly line steps, you will have a whack of cards in no time flat!
Hope this has inspired you to make your own set of cards :)

Today is Tuesday and that means another "Tag, you're it"-theme.
"Tag You're It Tuesday" means that a member of the Whiff of Joy team gets to surf the web and all the social media spots for someone special who inspires them to create something similar. We find our projects on our facebook page, pinterest or the challenge entries. So if you are sharing a Whiff of Joy project through social medias tag us with @whiffofjoy or #whiffofjoy and we will find it. And maybe you'll be the next inspiration for "Tag You're It Tuesday"
So for my inspiration I found a beautiful card on Pinterest and contacted the owner of the photo but unfortunately I never heard anything back. So I kept looking for more inspirations and after I had contacted four different people asking to feature their card here on the blog I was out of time and had to do the post. I guess a lot of people are on vacation now since it is in the middle of summer. But I didn't want to keep this page empty so I still went ahead and made a card using all of the inspiration I had found.
To make this card I used paper from Bazzil and some old ribbon I had in my stash. I also diecut some hearts from the Hearts Die-Light and what card is complete without a few butterflies? The butterflies are from the Large Butterfly Die-Light and the stamp is from the Birthday Phrases stamp set.
Here is a closeup of the card:
Large Butterflies - Set of 4 dies
Hearts Die-Lights - set of 6
Birthday Phrases - Set of 8 - English Sentiments
