|The pattern for this card holder is by Vickie Dutcher. Hers is actually for a 4.25 x 4.25 card. I adapted it for a 4X5.5 card at .5 inch deep to hold about 3 or 4 cards and then added another inch to it so it would hold 6 card and envelopes.|
|I was at Michael's the other day and they had some Free - Take me patterns. This is based on a pattern by Debi Hammons|
|This card is CASED from Vicki Wizniuk. She made a set of these in a card holder. I thought it was so cute I had to copy it. I especially like Vicki's work and get quite a few of my ideas from her. The paper is from the Animal Cookies paper pack.|
|This is called a windmill card. I found it on Sheila's Stampin' Stuff blog. I used the Olivia Paper Packet for it.|
|This is the front of the card holder that I am not happy with. The size is great. I think I need to remove the bowl of cherries though.|
In fact, I really don't like the second one at all. I am going to have to rethink this gift. The cards are okay, some I like better than others as you can see.
I am also putting together a beginner card class that I am hoping some of the teachers will attend. One of them will be the birthday card above, the other will be the Friendship card and the third will be the pinwheel card. I don't want to overdo the first set with coloring and cutting. That can be frustrating to some people.
Got to keep moving.
Thanks for tuning in.
