More cards for the Grandmas.

Posted by Michelle on May 17th, 2011 . Filed under: Birthday, Cards, Design Team Work, Glitz Design, Grandparents .

June for us is a busy month with both my mother and my mother-in-law having their birthdays just one day apart.  And if I need a card from each kid and one from us, that’s 6 cards total that I need in 2 days.  So the grandmothers’ birthdays is definitely one that I pre-plan for.

I love the big Whatnots that Glitz Design offers in the Afternoon Muse collection.  The thing about big pieces like this is that I think they are made with scrapbookers in mind.  And being that I am a cardmaker and not a scrapbooker, I like to make sure that I take full advantage of these great pieces.  They are 5×7 and when they are scored and folded down they make a great 3.5×5 card.  What a great size!  So that’s what I did – I used these Whatnots as my card bases and just layered on the fun!

    How clever, Michelle! I would still be looking at them, thinking, “These are too big, they’re for scrapbooking, bleh.” ;->

    Gorgeous cards and what a great idea to use the Whatnots as card bases. Hmm, must go away and look at my stash to see what I can ‘repurpose’!
