A couple of card sets

Today, I have a couple of card sets to share that I made using Reverse Confetti products.
Well, actually, it's not really the cards I'm sharing, but the packaging.
 

You see, Jonah's Jazz Choir is going to Banff at the end of April
and we have been doing fundraising for this trip.
In April, the choir is hosting a coffee house and there will be a Chinese Auction.
The choir director asked if we could donate prizes, so I made three card sets to donate.
Today, I'm sharing two of them.

The first card set is made up of the Shine Bright and Sun 'n Clouds Confetti Cuts cards
 that I shared here and here.



To make my packaging, I cut a piece of white cardstock to 11x2.25".
On it, I used the sun die from Sun 'n Clouds Confetti Cuts as a stencil
and applied some summer sunrise ink using my Tim Holtz blending tool.
Then, I stamped the sentiment (from Shine Bright) over top.
I wrapped the cardstock around the cards/envelopes and adhered it together in the back.

My second set of cards is a collection of the birds and bees cards that I made
recently for the Reverse Confetti Release using The Tweet Life & The Buzz,
that I posted here, here & here.


I created the packaging the same way as the first one, but here
I stamped the bees and sentiment from The Buzz in black ink.
Then, I stamped another bee on a post-it note, cut out it's body and laid the rest
of the post-it note over the bee to apply some summer sunrise ink using my Tim Holtz blending tool.


 

 

Thanks for looking

Hold it for a second here: your son is coming to Banff? In April? Will you be joining him, perhaps as a chaperone? Oh my...that would be awesome! We could meet! If not, well, do let us know where the choir will be performing. What a fabulous opportunity! As for your card packages: stunning gifts! Whoever buys these will be incredibly happy (and lucky) shoppers! Gorgeous cards to support a marvelous venture!
