Long Tall Cards

In the August Citrus Tree Studio kit, I received some blank cards. Which I usually love, but these were an unusual shape. They were long and tall. A shape I don't normally make cards with. So I stared at them for a while before I decided I was going to actually use them.


I loved the cute bird stamp!! I cut the clouds from my Cricut, but you could easily cut them by hand.  I had to add some buttons, too. Because buttons, much like chocolate, make everything better. 


Okay, one more card. I put my border punch to good use on this one.


I ran out of flags that came in the kit, so I made my own using stick pins from my stash and paper scraps. I'm not super happy with the placement of the flags, but it is what it is!!!

Hope you're having a great week so far! I can't believe the summer is winding down. School starts for my kids in 2 weeks and soccer practices started today. Bring on the busy. Thanks for stopping by today.

They are both very cute. I have a hard time with longer cards too. You did a great job with them though.

love the long cards--especially the one with the cool border punch! Enjoy those last few weeks of summer. We started back this week and while it is nice to have the kids back on schedule I actually missed lazing around with them today :(
