Wild Card Friday!

Hi everyone! Happy Friday! The next 2 cards in the Wild Card series are the Wave Card and the Pinwheel Card. I actually had a lot of fun making both of these cards. I hope you enjoy them!

The first one I am going to show you is my take on the Wave card, #19 in the book. When I was looking at the image of this card in the book, I kept coming up with Christmas card ideas. Instead of making the card AND envelope, I decided to make the card the envelope. I put some adhesive on the sides and the bottom of the folded card and then made a tag to go inside. I thought this would be so cute to go along with a platter of cookies for one of my neighbors. I used fit to page and cut out everything at 6 3/4". Tip: This is considered a tri-fold card, so if you decide to make both the card and envelope using the fit to page feature, make sure you cut the card out first to get a accurate dimension that they can both be cut at.

The second card today will be the Pinwheel card, #20 in the book. I have to say, I see so many possibilities with this card and the envelope is so cute! I ended up making mine a "Thinking of You" card. As you spin the pinwheel, there are Hello phrases in different fonts, when you open up the card, it says Thinking of You. I used fit to page and cut out everything at 6 1/2".

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by! I truly appreciate it!
