A Papyrus Copy


I saw this box of cards by Papyrus awhile ago and fell in love with them -- the blocks of color are so fun.

So, I decided to make my own. I mean, why pay $16.95 for six cards when you can make one with $17,000 worth of supplies? Sentiment from an Altenew set that came with a kit. 

And, since I liked it, I made another with different colors. See, all those supplies come in handy! This would make a cute valentine.



Get it?  I love you to pieces, as in pieces of cardstock? Sorry... Cute saying from Right at Home's Tiny Sentiments

MOOD WHEN DONE:  Happy!!

Holy cow, and only 6 cards in a $16.95 box! I love your idea! Sheesh, think of all the $17,000 scraps you could use up. Move over, Papyrus!

LOL! I am with Donna Mikasa, only $17000? I just finished cleaning and reorganizing my craftroom and I couldn't help but wonder about the $ value of what I have in there??? I have been making cards for 19 years so over time I hve accumulated a LOT of stuff...
$16.95 for a set of CARDS??? Just look at the money we've saved by making our OWN!!!!
Bahahahaha

At any rate Joan, your "inexpensive card" is beautiful!
Thanks for the Sunday morning laugh.

LOL, truly. I've been stamping over 30 years and I really don't want to think of how much money I've spent, but I do wonder sometimes. Thanks for the approximation and the inspiration! Cool card:)
