Summer Card Camp - Week Three (part #2)

Ok - take two! This second card really did come together from scraps. It was literally made using the off cuts from what was left from the two A4 sheets in card #1!

The tag/label is actually a made using a Papertrey Ink labels die which was only $6 - Bargain! It cuts beautifully and even comes with the little round reinforcement for the hole (really adorable). You can really vintage it up or use it for scrapbooking. Same stamp and buttons, but with the addition of some SU lace that I won in a door prize at the SU autumn mini launch, the sentiment is from SU sort and sweet (which has probably been my most used sentiment set thus far), and the chocolate double-stitched ribbon is a $2 shop special.

So what do you think? Oh, and the Kraft cardstock is stamps with SU 'En Francais' in Kraft ink. I love that tone on tone look. It helps fill bland space without adding too much. I've been doing that a lot lately since I can't seem to pull of detailed cards with any measure of success!

Well, in any event, here goes! Have a lovely night and enjoy what's left of the weekend. Hope you all squezed in some crafting time :)


  1. Ooh, I like this one! At the beginning of the week, I pulled out that SU lace, but didn't get around to adding it to any cards :( maybe I can squeeze it onto something next week :)
    I also need to get some Kraft ink (I'm with you - Crumb cake sounds silly) - Versamark on Kraft just doesn't cut it.

  2. Fantastic card. I love the embossed lines beside the lace too.

  3. Beautiful cards! I love the background you stamped on the kraft. Nice subtle detail. Great reminder for me to pull out up my background stamps.

  4. Super cute card! I will have to try this shape- like how it's folded on the short side. Also, the tag makes a great focal point! I just got a Sizzix tag die and need to play with it - inspired after seeing your pretty card!

  5. Love this card. Just gorgeous.
