Ephemera's Vintage Garden - Mabel's Diary - Project #3

Hello, my friends!

It's time to share my third and final project using the beautiful 
Mabel's Diary Journal Kit from Ephemera's Vintage Garden.

These wonderful kits are so incredibly versatile!
This project is for all of my card-making friends. 
I've made two sets of cards, along with matching envelopes.
They were so quick and easy to put together but with beautiful results. 
They would make great hostess gifts or stocking stuffers.

The set of cards on the left measure 3 1/2 inches square, 
and were made from leftovers from my mini album project.
The set of four cards on the right were made from the journal pages, 
and measure 4 inches by 5 1/2 inches. 

Here is a closer look.
 Just a little bit of punching and gluing and they were done.
I added bling in the colour of the dots under them.
Finally, I added a little picot bow at the top.
The envelopes were made the perfect size using the WRMK Envelope Punch Board.

The set of four cards was made using the printable journal pages.
I used only one side of the page for each card, choosing the ones I wanted for my set.
I distressed the edges and left them un-inked.
I added black photo corners, and a little bow. 
The labels on the pages were blank, so I added the stamped sentiments.
They could say anything you want them to.

For the inside of each card I punched a label from one of the other journal pages.
Again, I made envelopes using the punch board.
