Memories & More Color Theory Card Pack Large Cards

Have you checked out the Memories & More products in the Stampin' Up! catalogs? 


They're designed for scrapbooking, either in pocket pages or traditional pages. But they can be used for so much more! A lot of people are using them to make cards, so Stampin' Up! introduced Memories & More Cards & Envelopes that are the perfect size for the cards, which are 4x6" and 3x4". There are four card packs to choose from in the Annual Catalog along with Whisper White cards and envelopes. And there's an adorable Christmas set in the Holiday Catalog along with Poppy Parade cards and envelopes.

I had a retired set of cards from last year's Annual Catalog called Color Theory and decided to make them into cards to sell at a craft sale next month. There were two of each card in the pack, so for most of them I made two similar cards. Here's a sampling of the large cards, which are 4 1/4 x 6 1/4".


Stamps: Bella & Friends, Perennial Birthday


Snowflake diecuts on the left card are from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits
Greeting and diecuts on the right card are from First Frost Bundle


Stamps: Colorful Seasons 


Stamps: Rooted In Nature

Colors: Berry Burst, Crushed Curry, Dapper Denim (now retired In Color), Old Olive, Soft Suede, Whisper White

I'll share the rest of the large cards tomorrow and then start on the small cards.

Healing Hugs For A Friend

I found out recently that a good friend was diagnosed with breast cancer. I decided to make her a card, but was having trouble deciding where I wanted to put the greeting. So I took pictures of it in several different places and asked a few people for their opinions.


1 - on the bottom


2 - slightly up from the bottom


3 - centered


4 - towards the top

Which do you like best? 

Here's the final card:
