Card Gift Set by Shery

Let's welcome Shery Russ to the SRM Team.  This is her first post and you are in for a treat! 

Shery loves creating card gift sets.  For this set she combined stamping, SRM Sticker Sentiments, a SRM Doily and a clear A-2 Box topped with a SRM Made by Label to hold her special cards.

This set of cards are all one layer.  They are inexpensive to make and easy to mail.  But Shery says that one layer cards are a challenge by themselves as every time she sets out to create them, it pushes her to come up with creative ways to use stamps, inks and stickers.  Instead of relying on layering, you have to rely on one dimensional design.

Shery stamped 6 A2 cards,  in different colors.  She then affixed clear sticker sentiments from SRM, 3 thank you and 3 Oh Happy Day.

These cards, along with matching white envelopes, fit perfectly inside the A2 Card Box.  What a delicious grouping of cards and what a perfect gift for a teacher or friend.

Once all her cards were done, Shery decorated the clear box with Sticker Stitches and made a topper using SRM's 4" white doilies.  She took two doilies folded in half and then pleated.  She inked the edges of the doily to match the splatters on the top card.  She attached Velcro on two ends of a burlap ribbon and then glued her topper onto one of the ends.  That Made with Love Sticker is mounted on on Punched Piece.  Our design team members are loving the Punched Pieces.  Easy peasy!

When Shery made these cards, she did them assembly line style so the cards were done in quick time. With one sticker sheet, you can make at least a dozen cards with the images and sentiments (24 cards if you use them separately)...and then you've got mini sentiments to use on tags, journal cards, or your other paper craft projects.

Thanks for the inspiration Shery.  This card set is totally awesome!
