Stella & Rose Card Set

November 25th, 2011

Hi everyone!!! Happy Thanksgiving week! I hope your holiday was as fun and relaxing as mine. Right now I am on vacation in Taos, New Mexico. My husband and I travel every year over Thanksgiving and decided this year we would travel to Taos to see family. Our past trips have been to England, France, Italy, Mexico, and Jamaica. We love traveling internationally over Thanksgiving because to every other country, it’s just another day!

As I said, we are visiting family, my aunt and uncle and a couple cousins. This particular part of the family has always lived far from me, but they are amazing people and I love spending time with them. My cousin and I text MANY times a day. I decided to make my aunt some cards as a thank you for hosting us for dinner. I used several of Jen’s MME papers!

Gathering my supplies:

White cards, kraft cards, a few pieces of patterned paper, Papertrey Ink’s Botanical Silhouettes set (for the sentiments), and my Memento Tuxedo Black. Of course you’ll need adhesive and pop dots as well.

The paper pads I used: MME Stella & Rose Gertie, Stella & Rose Hattie, and Lost & Found 2.

The patterned papers that I chose. I love the 6×6 size for card making!

And here are the cards! I ended up using some matching cardstock behind the patterned paper to make it a little more substantial on the base. I also used the other side of each paper along the bottom of the sentiment to ground it.

(this sentiment comes from Congrats All Ways)

And the card I plan to send to my aunt and uncle is made with paper from MME Stella & Rose Hattie and a tag from MME Stella & Rose Mabel.

I hope everyone has had some lovely family time this week! Not to mention delicious food! Happy Thanksgiving.
