WOYWW 131 – still cards!

Still cards.   So these are the ones I will make for DH to give to his mates.  They aren’t girly, I don’t think, and should go together pretty quickly. The printable sheet is here for you. I make no bones about the fact I’m not keen on the traditional shades of red and green for Christmas, too bright and primary, but I included a couple in that sort of colourway in this cause I know I may be the oddball in that.

The PDF has three word strips perfect for 5 inch wide cards (no idea what the card number is for that (smaller than 1/4 an A4 sheet, I do know that!) and the smaller tags can actually be used for a 4 1/4 inch wide card or as tags for gifts.  The best thing to do is cut off the strips with the tags, then you can chop up the three larger blocks easily.

Here are the sample cards I am working on today:

Making use of the embossing folder, I can emboss just the middle of the card, and place the strip at the bottom so it looks like the whole card is embossed.  Clever, humm? Here are a couple of the tags – yes, I am already wrapping up a few gifts!

You could easily turn the tags into cards if you wanted.  So that’s what’s on my workdesk today!  With any luck my lousy track record of the last couple of very busy weeks will be corrected today.  And if you have no idea what I am on about, you really need to stop by and see Julia’ Mr. Linky list at The Stamping Ground for inspirational desk worldwide.
