Cards Cards Cards

I tidied up my studio and found a lot of new stuff for the scrapbin...but some of the stuff I kept out to fiddle around with. Here are some black, red and white cards...I used my frilly flower rubber stamp on red checkered paper and then added black prints. I used some MS punches, my Nestabilities and had fun. Also...I bought a wonderful package of thick double sided papers from Tuesday Morning...and with these papers I made two Card Sacks and 4 cards to put in them. I used my Cricut Beyond Birthdays cart for the various sentiments, ...and because the paper was double sided, I wanted to card to show both sides on the front of the card. Hence the paper hinges which attach to white cardstock for the inside.. The sack was fun to make and although I made 3 sets, each sack was done a bit different than the one before it. The handles I found had to have a brad to allow it to fold down to access the cards. I added ribbons and buttons and a title from Base Camp.
