Card Making Projects for August

I like to make a feminine card and a masculine card for our card makers group. Tonight we will make this little 4.25" square card. It could be for a fall birthday, thank you, or just a fall greeting. The base card is Pear Pizzazz with a layer of the new In-Color, Summer Starfruit, that was embossed with Perfect Polka Dots EF. The image, from "Four Seasons" (hostess) set, was colored with markers and stamped twice, once for the larger circle and once for the small one with the bird. They were punched with the 2-1/2" Circle Punch and the 1" Circle Punch. The bow was made with Certainly Celery Taffeta Ribbon. I made little envelopes that just fit these little square cards. Everything is from Stampin' Up!
The masculine card is also for the Twisted Sistahs Challenge which was presented by Tater. She asked us to make an ocean scene. I used "The Open Sea" set for the ship. An anchor is stamped inside and on the envelope. I used coordinating DSP (retired) and punched a strip with an SU! Border Punch. I sponged the image panel and added three Brass Brads (retired). Everything is from Stampin' Up! Thanks for stopping by!!
