I never did get to ink up this trio of girls from my last release...they're all mini stamps (#6033, 6034 and 6035) Kokeshi Doll 1, 2 and 3...along with # 6044 (Small Sakura) and Arigato sentiment from CL-11 (Keiko Set):

I made the card resemble a Japanese screen...

 Start with a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of card stock...score at 1-1/4" intervals and fan fold...the finished size of the folded card is 1-1/4" x 3-3/4"...tiny!!   I also made a quick vellum envelope to hold the card:


 To make the envelope, cut a 3" x 8-1/2" piece of vellum...Fold in half, then score each long edge at 1/4"...cut away the tabs on one side of the center fold and fold remaining tabs along scored line.    Use double stick tape to seal.

"Photo Album" Card

Just a fun little summer project...

It's a "photo album" card!!

It looks like a photo album of fun, summer activities...

 ...but at the back there's a space to write a note, making it a card.

Here are some really quick how-to's.  Cut 2 pieces of card stock for the front and back cover (3-1/4" x 4-3/4"...scored at 1/2" from short edge).  Insert four "pictures" into two 3" x 4" plastic bags and punch two 1/8" holes into each bag.  Punch 2 holes in front cover tab and back cover tab, lining up holes in "picture sleeves":

Put all pieces together using 2 brads to secure:

Hope you're having a fun summer!!!
