I made all of these cards using pattern paper from one My Mind's Eye paper pad "Love Me"... they were super easy to make.
Measurements for cards:
base is cream and is an A2 size
Red layer 5 1/4" x 4"
Cream layer 4 3/4" x 3 1/2"
Red layer 4 1/8" x 3 1/8"
pattern paper 4" x 3"
Red heart punched out using Stampin' UP! heart punch
Cream piece punched using Modern Label Punch and
stamped with sentiment from MFT Flopsey Bunch of Hearts set
small rhinestone brad added to upper right corner of heart.
I put dimensionals on the back of the sentiment strip and heart, but not where brad went.. I attached heart and sentiment to card top layers and then pierced a hole to put the brad through.. that way it is not sticking up so much. I then attached all the layers on top of card base.
Below is the empty paper pad and the pieces I have left over.. these pieces are mostly all 2" x 6" .. there are some that are smaller, but plenty big enough to make a bunch more cards.
The cards fill up a basket.. I keep cards as I make them in a small basket like this, then more it to a larger bin when I am finished with a batch. To the left of the cards is the scraps inside what used to be the paper pad.
thanks for looking ~
have a great airborne day!
God Bless All Our Military.. each and every one of them
