More Melissa Frances Note Cards

Here's the final tally of Melissa Frances product inspired cards. You'll maybe remember this post regarding the card class that Brandy and I took at the Mesa, AZ CK Scrapbook Convention. All the embellishments on these cards sans the red flower were leftovers from the C'est La Vie Retro Stickers provided in the class kit. I picked up four different patterned papers at their booth during the shopping at the convention. Although I still have a few paper scraps, I have used 95% of the stickers and feel that I definitely got my money's worth. Check these cards out up close:

This Missing You card was made from patterned paper which already had this neat postmark.  The ribbon  was a spare piece from the card kit and the stamp shaped sentiment from the retro stickers set.  All papers are edged in Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

This card contains a spare scrap of red rose patterned paper from a K & Co. paper scrap set I picked up at Ms for, I kid you not, 1 cent!  I just knew that the paper scrap set was on clearance and didn't know that the cost was so low.  I even remarked to the salesperson and she agreed that the price was right.  Yeah me!  All papers are edged in olive chalk ink.

These three cards just sort of made themselves.  The pink patterned paper came from the stash, various pink scraps so small that I couldn't find a label to identify their maker.  The I Love You card is made with Melissa Frances patterned paper and the Sassy card was made with more scraps from the K & Co papers.  All papers are edged in Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

I don't have any specific plans for these notecards.  Maybe they will end up in the mail or given as a set for a hostess gift.  Either way, what a wonderful inspiration the leftovers proved to be.
