Gosh, it has been forever since I have played in the Inspiration challenge over at SCS! I had some time this am and rushed over to the site. Stef always picks such fun places. Today was no exception.
I was inspired by these fun little vases
I instantly thought of a set of cards. The other day, I mailed a card to my sister. Now, keep in mind I put 64 cents on this card to mail -- that usually is enough. Well, shoot, the postman hit her up for ANOTHER 50 cents! Get out. Therefore, I kept these cards one layer -- 45 cents will cover these to be mailed.
One in a Million for the sentiments (you can get this set free when you buy 3!), and PTI Turning a New Leaf for the leaves. I will be making a small box to hold these cards for a future gift.
On a side note:
DO YOU USE POP TONE CARD STOCK or INK? The above cards are made with this fabulous paper. Pop Tone has such vivid color and is 100# paper. The heavier paper is so nice for a card base. Nothing worse then a flimsy base -- makes your cards feel cheap. Anyway, I noticed the other day that Pop Tone can be expensive! However, did you know that STAMP SCHOOL (store name is A Walk Down Memory Lane) carries this card stock and ink and it is ONLY $6.00 for a 25 sheet package, or $4.99 for the matching ink pads! For fun I googled Pop Tone cardstock - oh my! One of the sites had $1.00 per sheet or $9.98 for 25 sheets! Wow, I didn't realize it was that expensive out there in googleland! I'm telling ya - if you like heavier card stock, AWDML is the place to get it!! [I love saving you all money!]
