All made up

Yesterday, one A5 piece of cardstock was freehand stamped into homemade patterned paper and then, overnight, it has been magically transformed in three cards. OK...I'm not that lucky but one of the following cards was trivial to make and the other two stepped up a little.

The Trivial One
Cut the A5 cardstock (landscape) into half. Adhere one of the halves to a card blank. Top off with a framed sentiment.

The Stepped Up a Tad Card
Cut a piece off remaining patterned cardstock. Mat that piece on some white copy paper (less bulk). Assemble with a piece of distressed contrasting cardstock and embellish with hardware. Write greeting.

The Stepped Up a Bit More Card

For those who can see the dry embossing on the last card - this was done using a Cuttlebug in conjunction with a Fiskars texture plate.

Update 8:05pm
I'm dedicating the Stepped Up a Tad card to Allison to say thank you for linking to my blog. This generous act of hers has generated more traffic than I'm likely to ever see again. I should rename the card "Stepped Up a Lot" as a result. Thank you, Allison!

These are lovely, Lin Mei! They would be great for a 'One Sheet Wonder' at a workshop/Class.

Kari, I was thinking that this could constitute a half-a-sheet wonder ... but it sounded so unwieldy!

Carol, I am eagerly awaiting what you'll make with the sampler DSP in Almost Amethyst.
