Last year after Halloween, I was in Michael's and they had a 50% off sale on stickers. I picked up 5 sheets of these and 5 sheets of another design that will be used for Thanksgiving cards. Although the pumpkins aren't really a Jack-O-Lantern, they make a nice design for Fall.
First the card base was embossed with a Cuttlebug folder. While I was doing that, my friends were attaching the stickers to pre-cut white card stock pieces and then matting them on the orange pieces.
There were a number of stickers on the sheets so we tried to arrange them to get "the most for our buck". The #4 card actually has 3 stickers combined....as do cards #2 & #3.
This was a single sticker that had to be added to the card after everything else was in place. There are other cards that are designed similarly from a variety of these stickers. A total of 53 cards were made from these designs and will be donated to the staff at the care center where my 97 year old mother-in-law lives.
We had a lot of fun working on these cards Tuesday! I had pre-cut the card bases and other items for the cards and we managed to have all 44 of yesterday's cards and 53 of these completed in just under 3 hours. And we still manage to get some great conversations during all of it.
Thank you for coming by today!
