one design, three cards

I didn't quite get to finish making everything I wanted to make with my Studio Calico Penny Arcade kits since I was on vacation for part of June so yesterday I decided to make a few more cards. I didn't have a lot of time so I came up with one design and quickly put together three cards!

Here's how the three cards came together:

  • cut three card bases at 5x4.25"
  • cut strips of my favorite patterned papers at 1.5x4.25"
  • cut some banner shapes
  • gathered together various embellishments, dies, stamps and sentiments

And here are the three cards I came up with using the Penny Arcade card kit and the Pinball card add-on.

The awesome die cut and totally stamp are part of a die/stamp set combo from Studio Calico found here.

The hello friend stamp is part of the Churros stamp add-on set. (you can see another card I made with the cute tomato stamp here)

The best wishes stamp and the flower cabochon are part of the Pinball card add-on.

If you have a few leftovers and you're short on time, try sticking with one design for multiple cards. And have fun!
