Columbus Crop Card Buffet

For those of you who don't know, semi annually I host the Columbus Crop.  This is a fund raiser for the Parent Association at Columbus Catholic Schools where my children attend.  At this event, I host a "card buffet."  What is that you ask?!?!  Well it's just like a regular buffet, where you get as much or as little of an item as you like.  So if you really love this card, you can make one or five.  You pay $2 per card ($1 for a special cause and $1 to me for supplies).  I always try to use some of my "retired" supplies when I make these cards.


I also like to make most of them pretty simple so that anyone can go up there and do it.  The hardest part about this card was to remember to punch the flower out of the black mat before adhering the dsp layer.  I think this punch coordinated nicely with the patterned paper.


Wedding season is upon us!  I really like this card as it could be an anniversary or wedding card.  I love love love the butterfly stamp and punch and try to use them any chance I get. 


And lastly, graduation will be here any day now.  You can also use this card for someone who got a promotion or even for a demonstrator!  I have this saying on my craft room wall....love it!
