This month I'll start by showing you the card (above) that I made. Instead of a traditional folding card, it's a gift card holder.
In the diptych above, you see photos of the supplies that I used. I chose a red, white, and blue color scheme this time. For my ten supplies, I used: two sheets of patterned paper, two sheets of white cardstock, 2 types of embellishments (label stickers and decorative stickers), two "upcycled" supplies (a punch card and fruit bag mesh); and two non-consumable supplies (two types of stamps). I was excited for another chance to use my handmade banner stamp, which I made in May. Unfortunately, the stamp ripped into pieces when I tried to pick it up. I don't know whether I stored it incorrectly or it was just too fragile. But in any case, I was unable to actually use the stamp for Ten on the Tenth. :(
Stamp disappointments notwithstanding, I made some fun projects with the other nine supplies from my stash. Let's get back to the gift card holder that I mentioned at the beginning of this post. In the photo above, you can see how it looks with the gift card removed. Below is a closeup of the labels and sentiment.
And here (below) is a picture of the back of the gift card holder, which has "to" and "from" blanks.
|Additional supplies used for gift card holder: wrapping tissue, Zig pen; Candi dots from Craftwork; alphabet stickers (both sizes) from October Afternoon; Tsukineko ink; ReStyle ribbon; household pencil.|
Next I'd like to show you the other two projects that I made with my red, white, and blue supplies. This will just be a quick overview, since I've already blogged about these projects in separate posts.
I made a layout called "AUS Meets USA," which you can read about in this post.
To use up the scraps leftover from making the card and layout, I created a second layout. It's called "July Stars and Stripes," and you can read about it in this post.
That's it for this Ten on the Tenth post. But I'll leave you with a teaser photo (above). The upcoming September Ten on the Tenth post will focus on mini supplies, like the little journaling cards and button stamp shown in the picture. I look forward to sharing projects with you again soon!
