Letterbox Card Set

This post is featuring Embellish-Online.com, and since I wasn't online last Saturday, I'm posting four cards that I created with the American Crafts Letterbox Collection! This collection is perfect for cardmakers since the prints are scaled down perfectly! I love the range of colors and decided to make a card set.

The first card features Letterbox's Adieu designer paper. I paired all of these papers with a dark truffle brown cardstock. The flower element is cut from Letterbox's Faithfully designer paper. The flower center is a American Crafts Note Flair adhesive badge. The sentiment is a SU! rubon that I added to an American Crafts Cardstock sticker.

Other items on this card include:
~Cuttlebug Textile Embossing Folder
~SU! Photo Corner Punch
~Making Memories Edge Distressor
~Sizzix - Flower & Vines #2
~Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder
~Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch
~Adhesive Pearls

My second card features American Craft Letterbox's Respectfully designer paper. Happiness Always is by SU! and is stamped on an American Craft's carstock sticker. I added some May Arts 1-inch Satin Ribbon and Blue Skies Relax Flair.
Other items on this card include:
~Cuttlebug's Textile Embossing Folder
~SU! Photo Corner Punch
~Sizzix Flower & Vines #2
~Prima flowers

My third card features Letterbox's With Love designer paper. I layerd an American Crafts cardstock sticker under a Prima flower, added some Sizzix Flower & Vines #2 swirls and a Letterbox Note Flair adhesive badge.
Other items used include:
~Cuttlebug Textile Embossing Folder
~SU! Photo Corner Punch
For my final card today I used Letterbox's Sir designer paper. I paired it with another flower that I cut out from Letterbox's Faithfully designer paper. I topped the flower off with a Letterbox Note Flair adhesive badge.

Other items include:
~American Crafts carstock sticker
~Impression-Obsession stamp
~Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch
~Sizzix Flower & Vines 2
~Cuttlebug's Textile Embossing Folder
~Cuttlebug's Swiss Dots Embossing Folder
~SU! Photo Corner Punch

Those Letterbox cards are just something else! It's amazing what someone can do with a few different papers and some punches along with a few other items, of course. I may have to try some of these myself!
