MIM #100

PapertreyInk's 100th Make it Monday!
Dawn shared a tutorial on fitting our larger than A2's into a carrier that holds the bulk.
A plus with this weeks' challenge is a 100.00 gift certificate at Papertrey!
I'm posting a couple of cards and their packaging.

The sweet little owl stamp is from Hero Arts, recently picked up from the Stamp Art Shoppe in Roseville, Ca. Just had to have him. We have barn owls all over. They keep the mice pop. down, and you can sometimes hear them at night. Picked up some Valentine paper and stickers from Crate Paper. The key embellishment is from Bo Bunny. White card base PTI, as well as the coaster tag I printed the owl on. Papertrey sells Clearly Creative card boxes to house the A2 size cards. The extensions and the thickness fits well within the clear box. I turned the band the long way, embossed some hearts from Heart-2-Heart #3, and Framed out #11. All secured with Washi tape I used on the card.

2nd card has an oversized vellum envelope with some of the same hearts and the love script embellished from Think Big Favorites #23. The card has PTI's By the numbers die '14'. The 4 has some fairy dust sprinkles. Also from PTI is the red poppy felt heart border die. Hop on over to Nichole Heady's blog to see more of the great ideas on How to package those (almost all I ever do!) oversized and embellished cards.


  1. Love both cards and all the colorful layers...great job! :0)

  2. Oh, wauw, this looks gorgeous! Love all the red and pink and all the details!! Your packaging is beautiful. An amazing gift package!!!
    Hugs, Wendy

  3. Both are gorgeous Nancy! I love the paper to the side with the bows or ribbon on it. Your owl is too cute. I always find a stamp I want when I know I don't need it. Love the vellum too.

  4. Beautiful cards with so many details in the embellishments. The owl stamp looks fab - it must be amazing to see them flying at night.

  5. Those are GIFTS, not cards! Incredible packaging - LOVE the washi tape you used and that owl is hooting my name. The map heart in the love card is perfect, as are the felt hearts sewn to the top for trim. Gorgeous.

  6. This is just amazing! I LOVE the map! It's so unexpected but is at home, right where it should be!


So happy you came for a visit. I love reading your comments!
