Bright and funky flower card with matching sleeve & moving cards

card alone

Hello! I have kind of a monster post for ya today! The first project is for this week's colourQ #97! I really hope you will come play along with my DT buds and I over there. :) This is a funky color combo! I wanted to go with a fun, feminine, yet kitchy card with these colors, I **think** I succeeded, what do you think? I decided this card would be even better if it had it's own custom "sleeve" instead of a regular envelope. This accomodates the big flower without crushing it, too. The construction is pretty simple, as you can see. Here are several more pics...

ok, next project is for my grandparents! They are moving into an assisted living place and my aunt asked me to make their moving cards. Pretty simple construction on these too. The cards are all different because I was using this mini stack of papers from Stampin' Up! with the coordinating stamps. You mat remember these if you buy Stampin' Up! They are from a few years ago, the "Sale-a-bration" promotion.  It felt good to use some of these papers up! For more tips on mass producing cards (I did 30 of these...) go to this post. Here's some of my faves of the 30.... (I blurred out the new addy for security reasons...) I just did a simple gatefold card with a stamped punched piece in the center. 

Well, that's it for me today! I hope you like my cards! Have a stellar day & I will be back soon! :)

Love it when you can use up older papers and still have beautiful cards. These are great, and I'm sure your g'parents will appreciate them.

Great cards, Noelle! I hope your grandparents enjoy their assisted living home. Visit as often as you can! Your CQC gift card holder is lovely! Hugs!
