"Tuesday Tall And Skinny"

Hello to all my crafty friends, followers, viewers and visitors.

All the little kids are so excited about today being the first day of December.  I know of one little one who has a calendar and is beginning to mark off the days until Christmas.  She has already told me that Santa is bringing me some "art and craft" stuff.   Oh my! I have to make room for whatever it is going to be (lol).

Today's card  (which was made yesterday) features a "tall and skinny" card that can be achieved by the following measurements  (I used the one for 6 inches):
 For a 3.5 x 5.5" and fits a regular A2 envelope  You can use either of the following measurements, depending on where you want your fold (according to Julee Tilman)
•3.5 x 11" cut of cardstock, score long side at 5.5"
•5.5 x 7" cut of cardstock, score long side at 3.5"

For a little more skinny, you can try a 3.5 x 6" card to fit a regular No. 6 3/4 envelope (the ones that are about the size of a personal check).  Use either of the following measurements, depending on where you want your fold.
•3.5 x 12" cut of cardstock, score long side at 6"
•6 x 7" cut of cardstock, score long side at 3.5"

Card A is for the   Mojo Monday 426  challenge
Here are the supplies I used:

  • Neenah white cardstock; grey Recollection cardstock; DP from graphic 45 twelve days of Christmas
  • layered accents from K & Company
  • sketch from Mojomonday.blogspot.com

Card B is for a baby shower.  It was done using the same sketch from mojomonday.blogspot.com.





Supplies used:
  • beige and black Recollection cardstock ( I know it looks bad to use black on a baby shower card but I could not achieve the "pop" I wanted without it).
  • DP from DCWV The Citrus Matstack and Zoophabet 2 (it is more than 7 years old...don't know if it is still around)
  • embellishments from Jolee'








Thanks for viewing with me today.  Come again!

Sending you a hug and LOVE,
Lois
