USEIT2019 - Wrapping paper

My MIL gave me a book of Asian wrapping paper and I am slowly working my way through it building up my thank you card stash. Today's FS reminded me that DP can make great quick cards so I grabbed another sheet of the wrapping paper and cut it down to make these quick cards.

Many Quick Thanks

IC727 - Ruby Mountain Paint Co where I found this Paint

I am in process of making 205 (yes you read that right) congratulations cards for my son's band. They gave me 6 days and I work a full time job. Panic has set in....

Yesterday I cut all the white bases, scored them and folded them, I also got all the black cut and embossed. Now in the picture you can see one with a gold paint that was added with a brayer and one with no gold. The one on the right is the proto card and the one on the left is a stepped up version that I wanted to put together to show them. I finished adding the individually cut, punched and crimped jabot this morning. Then I die cut the sentiment frame, heat embossed the sentiment and popped up on dimensionals.

Why the story of the two pictures on this post...well I am going to see if I can convince them that the one on the right with the doily is the way to go because it took an hour to do the one on the left. Pray I get these done by Thursday. Because I am gonna need it if they want the one on the left.



  1. 205 cards in less than a week! EEEK. You'll be successful or you won't sleep. Love your cards this week. I know I commented on some of them on SCS. There are some great challenges. I can't believe you made your own paper. How cool is that. I haven't had any time for the tutorials, but I do love how yours turned out. Thanks for the inspiration.

    1. I was able to actually complete 208 cards in 4 days. They are now with the guy that asked me to make them and will be delivered to the kids on Saturday.

      Thank you for all the wonderful comments here and on SCS. <3
