This week, Stampin’ Up! surprised their demonstrators with a PDF set of COVID-19 sentiments. I immediately used them to create cards to send to my family. This sentiment is perfect for us because, like so many other people, we have been sharing locations with tp. When we find some, we pick up as much as allowed in order to share with other family members.
Since I incorporated two different color challenges, I used one sets of colors for five cards and another set for the other five. The layout is from a sketch challenge, but I missed the deadline for that.
I am having a terrible technical time with this post tonight. Hopefully, I will be able to post the challenge banners here instead of after my card.
Here are my cards:
Using What I Had Before It Retires
It’s pretty easy to see which card matches which color challenge. For each of the challenges, I used 6 x 6 DSP from the various color families. The mats used Bermuda Bay or Rich Razzleberry. Thankfully, I had retired ribbon in Bermuda Bay and Melon Mambo. In order to create a frame around the 6 x 6 DSP pieces, I used Basic Black mats.
When I printed the sentiments, I printed enough of the particular page with the tp sentiment. Isn’t it perfect?
The inside sentiment is shown below:
Cute! Appropriate, right?
When making multiple cards , I’ve found it much easier to do each element and then assembly line the card together. Therefore, I had little piles of DSP strips, sentiments cropped, ribbons,base cardstock, and black mats all cut out. I even had the dimensionals on the back of the sentiments done and they had their own pile. This allowed me to create the cards in chunks throughout my virtual teaching day in 5 minute breaks over two days. Easy Peasy really and truly.
What About the Greats?
After I had written and addressed all the cards, I thought I needed to send a card to each of my great-nieces and great-nephew.
Here are those cards:
As always, thank you so much for stopping by my blog today. I’d love to hear what you think, and greatly appreciate every comment.
Please stay safe, healthy, and isolated as much as possible. I miss my high school kids and the relationships we’ve formed. My heart breaks for my seniors. But, by working together and following the CDC guidelines, we can all help to flatten the curve.
Have a Peachy Day!
