WSC 4.28.10-just in time!
please click images to enlarge.
hi again! this week's WSC is all about KISS (Keep It Super Simple!)-all the deets are on this MFT blog post and boy did this one ever come in handy!
i need to have 45 Mother's Day cards finished & delivered to the state Veteran's home by next weekend so they can be distributed to all of the wonderful ladies on Sunday! could never happen without a super simple card-especially since this week kicked off with an extremely stressful start! anyway- these are little cards that pack a lot of heart- i really wanted each veteran Mom to have something special that she could display and not have it take up much room (the residents have a hospital room set up, with 2 people per room and a shared bathroom)- a little 3x3 inch card seemed just perfect.
i used MFT's heavyweight cardstocks in bubblegum, snocone, banana split and sour apple for the bases. all the scraps from making the bases were cut using the new fantastic MFT DieNamics scalloped scallop die with the cuttlebug--oh how i loved using up all those scraps & man i am LOVIN' this die & can't wait to order the others at the big release party tomorrow night (from 5-7pm Pacific Time--please come hang out with the whole MFT gang & my fellow junkies on the MFT forum at SCS) i was lucky enough to get this die in a VIP kit i ordered a couple of weeks ago! so so cool!
anyway- i used some of my favorite Scenic Route patterned papers for backgrounds. i stamped a beautiful sentiment from MFT's Clearly Sentimental about Mothers onto creme perfect paper panels and cut them out. i inked the edges with a soft blue cat's eye ink, punched a hole in each sentiment strip with the good 'ol crop-o-dile and tied a small ribbon knot. 2 sweet MFT glittered garnishes finish off each card (i LOVE these and will be refilling my stash immediately- i panic that i will run out LOL!) super simple and easy to 'assembly line'.
The inside is finished off with the sentiment from another fave MFT set- Mother's Day (digi only available here)-you'll see more of this set later this week as i'm using it for another card
i have only a few more left of these minis to finish off and they'll be ready to deliver!
thanks for looking!
