Aspen Club Stamp ships today! (Just had to tell you that because I'm so excited about this month's collection!)
Each month, we invite a guest artist to create a set of cards, using supplies from our Greetings to Go pack. Our Aspen guest artist was Janet Moran, one of our long-time members from Georgia.
The Greetings to Go package contains enough supplies to create fifteen greeting cards. Our designers put together five each of three different card sizes/designs, with coordinating panels and envelopes. The sets of five are divided into Set A, B and C in the Greetings to Go samples Tricia creates each month.
This is Janet's first time as a Greetings to Go Guest Artist, and she did an amazing job! Let me take you on a little tour of her completed cards.
Set A: 4½x6¼” Green Cards
Don't you just love that sweet Tic-Tac-Toe board? It was created using Aspen Club Scrap Wood Veneer for the grid and stitched fibers and a small leaf image stamp for the X's and O's. I also really like the hint of sparkle the torn bits of Mica Handmade paper adds to several of her cards.
Set B: 4¼x5½” Almond Cards
|Use a snowflake punch to make a mask to create a snowy background.|
|Torn papers add interest and texture.|
Finally, Janet used the smallest five cards to create a coordinating set of cards all tied up with ribbon that's ready for gift-giving. I love this idea!
Set C: 3 ½ x5” Aqua Cards
Janet did a great job, didn't she? Using five out of the fifteen cards as a small last-minute gift is so clever!
Greetings to Go Guest Artists are given the current month's Club Scrap materials to work with:
- Greetings to Go Pack
- Embellishment Pack
- Collection Unmounted Rubber Stamp sheet
- Greeting Unmounted Rubber Stamp sheet
