Check out the great deals and stamp sets for you this month.
The special stamp set we have for you this month is:
" You've Got Style"
Continuing with my Scor-Pal tutorials, I have two more cards for you today. The first one is a small card, measuring 3" x 4 1/4" (closed). Scor-Pal calls it an Accordian Fold Card. Here is the tutorial. I think it's big enough to enclose a gift card to Starbucks maybe!
The closed card has a small belly band around it to keep it closed. I added some gold cord and a charm.
Here it is opened.
My second card using today's set is a rather untraditional Christmas card. The stacked coffee cups are plain -- no pattern. I just took several images from the MFP Christmas Selections set and, voila, we have instant Christmas cups.
This is a free-standing Pop-Up card. Here is the tutorial. I think my daughter would enjoy this card. She says you can't talk to her until she's had two cups of coffee in the morning! The "Merry Christmas" is from MFP Winter Scenes.
I hope you've been enjoying the blog hop so far this week. I'm sure the rest of the team has had fun with this month's sets. I know I have! Vicky Gould is next on the list.
