August Club Projects

Here are 2 of the projects I came up with for this month's Club meetings. This top one is a variation on the 'Joy Fold' card using the new ribbon slide and ornament keepsake stamp set. The DSP is from a paper stack measuring 4 1/2 x 6 1/2" called 'Festival of Prints'. Love this pretty pack of useful DSP :)

I saw this blog post by Cindy and thought the card was so unique. My only problem was that the measurements were for a 12x12 piece of cardstock and I didn't have the colour I wanted in that size. So I sat down and figured out a different version using my 8 1/2" x 11" cardstock.
For mine, you cut the cardstock at 5 1/2 x 11" and along the 11" edge, you score at 1 3/4"  3 1/2"  6 1/4" and 8". You'll cut DSP in 3 sizes, 1 1/2" x 5 1/4", 2 1/2" x 5 1/4" and 2 3/4" x 5 1/4". For the plain areas, you'll cut 2 pieces at 5 1/4" x 1 1/2". The belly band was 8 1/2" x 1 1/2".
Stamp sets used for these 2 projects were Keepsake Ornaments and Friendship Preserves. The Christmas card used Limeade and Cherry Cobbler cardstock and the Thanks card used Island Indigo and Orchard Harvest DSP.

Oh perfect! These are both out of the ballpark. I need to case these.
