"Lovin' The Long Card"


Along with being addicted to the Jersey Shore paper. I am also addicted to the long card. It is 6 1/2 x 6 1/2 scored right down the middle. They fit in the SU open ended envelopes. I think they are fun to make. I love making the regular size cards but these are super fun. The only down size is that you can only make one per sheet of cardstock.
Stamps: Birthday Whimsy
Paper: Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White, Jersey Shore
Ink: Pumpkin Pie
Accessories: White Grosgrain Ribbon, Giga and Mega Scallop Circles, SU White Gel Pen, Dimensionals

Here is another long card I made. I decided not to use birthday whimsy on this one. Seeing that is the only stamp I used for two days. I colored the cake with markers and popped the image up with dimensionals. Are you sold on the Jersey Shore paper yet?
Stamps: Warmest Regards, Fun and Fast Notes
Paper: Brilliant Blue, Whisper White, Jersey Shore DP
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: White Grosgrain Ribbon, SU Markers, Giga and Mega Scallop Circles, SU White Gel Pen, Dimensionals

Thanks for your comment - I've got a few days off now to recuperate so can't wait to get some stamping done - once I've caught up on the housework.
