Gift Card Series Part 1

I've been going through a lot of my card supplies and purging whenever possible. One of the things I found was a pile of small envelopes that measure 3 1/4" square. I don't even remember buying these! So I decided that I'd make enough cards to use up the envelopes. I pulled out four main images from The Saltbox Studio (as well as a background image)and some patterned paper and cardstock that was leftover (again, no idea where this stuff came from!) and got busy. I made two cards from each image, but not necessarily for the same purpose. I'll be sharing these with you over the next four days! The first set features the jumping sheep from the Sheep Set.



This was the one set that used a background stamp (the little stars and moon, just omitted the moon). I also poured on the fun flock. I figured a small card deserved just as much attention as a bigger card, so I might as well use texture. The thank ewe card would be perfect for a hostess gift and the little lamb card could be tucked into a lunchbox.

I'll be back with more soon. Don't forget to check out The Saltbox Studio Sampler for some excellent coloring techniques (if you have Copics, this is perfect for you!) and a contest!!!

card info: images and sentiments by The Saltbox Studio, papers from my scrap supply, ribbon from Martha Stewart, fun flock, glitter by Stampendous, buttons from my supply.

What cute little sheepies! I know, I know, that's not a word, but they're too cute to JUST be sheep! ;)
