Lot of 10 "I LOVE YOU" kids cards *w/measurements

After making 10 cards earlier today, I decided to find another sketch in my pile of Deconstructed Sketches that I have printed off and selected Sketch #48.     I altered it a tad to make it work with the papers I was using and I really like the way they turned out.

*NOTE:  The two cards above the sketch printout were made using two of the 2" strips I had leftover.  To make this set of 10 cards, I ended up using every sheet in the MME paper pad My Girl that I was using.   I have some 2" strips left and some pieces I am punching out that I may use on the next set of cards. I'll figure that out after posting this.  

This was when I started, I made two cards to see if I liked how they looked before proceeding on with making others.

 *TIP.  For the half circle piece I had pieces leftover from the tops of  strips I cut, I used a very large circle punch to punch them out, then punched out some pieces in black with the same punch and layered them together.


card base:  8 1/2" x 11"  scored at 4 1/4"

solid layer  4 1/8" x 5 3/8"
pattern layer 4" x 5 1/4"

solid/pattern  .. I cut a piece 3 1/8" wide and longer than 4 1/2".. after trimming the banner ends, I cut it to 4 1/2" long, adhered it to the black layer and then cut the banner ends on the black piece.

on the cards with the 2" wide banner, I cut the piece 2 1/8" wide and did the same as the banner above.

this will be determined by your sentiment. The sentiment I used is one I bought at Michael's. I cut the white piece 1" x 3 1/2" and the black layer 1 1/8" x 3 5/8"

Here's the sketch I used:  DECONSTRUCTED SKETCH #48


card stock:  black, white
pattern: MME My Girl
stamps:  Craft Smart "I LOVE YOU" from Michael's
ink: Hero Art black
accessories:  Scor-Pal, Large Circle Punch and Scissors

have a great airborne day!
God Bless All Our Military.. each and every one of them

I have been enjoying your cards with the 6x6 pad papers but these are especially wonderful! LOVE the half circle and sketch that you used! I am assuming that you make these cards for military men and women to send to their family and friends???

Nice work! I have that same paper pack and love all the patterns! I like how you backed them all in black- really makes those patterned papers stand out!
