Several of my Online Paper Crafter’s Club members earned a product bonus based on their August club order amounts – a generous sampling of the new Brushed Metallic Cardstock! After cutting the sheets to 6 x 11 inches, I ended up with several one inch strips of this beautiful metallic paper. So those pieces were the beginning inspiration for my club cards which I am sharing with you today. My apologies to my club members, though…I’m still preparing these gifts and finishing up the cards for all 30 of you. Things are taking me a bit more time now that I’m dealing with a broken toe. Yes…darn it, I broke my toe bone. My son has a broken finger. I have a broken toe. We are hoping that my other son and my husband are not next.
I just showed live on YouTube about an hour ago how I made use of these Brushed Metallic scraps, images from the Rustic Retreat Stamp Set, the Evergreen Embossing Folder, and some fun ink to put together some handsome thinking of you cards. And now I’m sharing that video here in my blog post. Be sure to watch the video by clicking here (or you can just click on this image below if you are already on my blog post), scroll through the close-up photos that follow, check out the measurements & products list below, and then let me know if you have any questions.
