Quick look: a box of greeting cards

This project is from Club Scrap's Share the Love event. The stamps and project are still available.

The project made two boxes filled with greeting cards in a lovely neutral color palette.  Cards make great gifts - everyone can always use a special card, and who doesn't love saving a trip to the store for a last minute card?

One of the things I love about Club Scrap project is starting with the directions, and then letting my own creativity take over. Sometimes, everyone just needs a little push to get started. I made a few cards like the directions, and then started mixing in other stamps and rearranging the pieces.

The tops of the boxes were decorated with distress inks and stamps.  On the right, I did lots of water spritzing, and mixing of colors. The harlequin pattern on top gave just the right amount of brown for me to mute the colors just a bit.

If you haven't checked out Club Scrap yet, what are you waiting for? As an added incentive, when they get to 2,000 likes on facebook, they will give all of their friends a free project instruction sheet - well worth the like!
