2-4-5 Cards… and NO Ribbon!

Have you ever heard of a 2-4-5 card making group?  I have several going on around Jacksonville… and it is basically a group of stampers who get together once a month to make two cards for $5.00 including envelopes.  It is a fun way to get together with friends, and best of all, you don’t even have to bring any supplies… I do that for you!  The cards are usually quite simple, and a very good starting place for beginning stampers (although more seasoned stampers enjoy the groups too!)

This month, I challenged myself NOT to use ribbon… an easy embellishment I love to add to my cards, but sometimes you just don’t have or want ribbon!


These are the 2-4-5 cards we are making for the month of June… this first one with a masculine slant, suitable for a Fathers’ Day card, Congrats card, or Birthday card… depending on what you stamp (or write) inside the card.  Although most of the images on the card are from the “Wanted” Stamp Set, I did borrow “Celebrate You” from the “Party Hearty” Stamp Set.
