August Card Challenge

Happy August everyone! I am wish the best for you all this month. Well as you all know I do a card challenge every month over at The Moments. I have had fun coming up with different ideas each month. So this month's card will be a tri-fold card. I made this card for a friend. So it includes a letter and a picture. I know she will love it.

Here is how I did it.

I cut this cardstock into two 5x10 strips. Then folded in the middle to make them like two cards.

Then, I used adhesive to put the two pieces together into one long strip.

It could be called the "Z" card because that is what it looks like.

I used my new Echo Park pp on pink cs, vellum paper w/ the sentiment, and these white crochet flowers with pearls.

Here is the inside. Used the same pp and pearls.

Well join me over at The Moments to have fun in this and other challenges posted August 1.  Thanks for looking!

Butterflies Are Here

Good afternnon! The butterflies have landed in our greeting card garden. It wouldn't be summer without butterflies. :) I created one card for a challenge and liked it so much I decided to try a few more. They are now available in our Etsy shop. http://www.kellyron.etsy.com/ 

The butterflies are literally flying off the card with the help of foam adhesive dots. I stamped, heat embosssed and hand cut each butterfly. Lot of work but so worth it.  Here are a few.

Used Webster's Pages cardstock on cream cardstock, Jenni Bowlin butterfly stamp, brown ink for edges, pearls, sentiment stamp and Martha Stewart punch on edge.

Used Webster's Pages cardstock on cream cardstock, Jenni Bowlin butterfly stamp, black jewels and sentiment stamp.

Used Webster's Pages cardstock on cream, Jenni Bowlin butterfly stamp, crystal swirls and stamp sentiment.

Hope you feel inspired by these cards. I had fun creating them. Have a great day!
