Card and an Envie, 8 Cents!

Holy moley, now that is frugal! This is the set I made for less than 8 cents using digital stamps from Mel’s Brushes:

Stamps: Mel's Brushes, Envelope Templates: Lindsay's Stamp stuff

I printed the cardbase and the digital stamps on a sheet of GP cardstock (2 cents) and I cut the envelope with my Cricut and SCAL software and the matting later out of a single sheet of pattern paper (my mind’s eye everyday tango stack bought on sale: 180 sheets/$8 around 6 cents.)  To make my base I made a new 5″x7″ document and recolored and printed the stitches stamps on it (you get 26 stitches for $5!) then I “inked” the edges with the art media tool. Since most of the paper is white it is easy on ink too! Then I pasted that into a 8.5″x11″ document, scaled it a bit smaller and printed the recolored shabby flower stamps in the margin so I got all of the elements on one sheet. Easy peasy!

Cards for pennies! it's a good thing!

Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
