The Crafter's Cafe Challenge Blog - Anything Goes

Hello, Crafty Peeples!
I have three projects to post for the Anything Goes Challenge at TCCCB!  I decided to do one project for each of our wonderful sponsors.  You know I like a lot of pictures, so lets get to it! :D)

Using "Daylilly Corner"
Stationery, Note Card and Envelope Holder
This beautiful Corner Floral "Daylily Corner" is from DS4Joy.  The embossing is not as visible as I had hoped, but it reads, "Just A Note."

 I thought this Tim Holtz Cardstock with the old style script was perfect for a notecard folder!   
The folder is covered with clear contact shelf liner to protect it and to give it a matte finish. I intended to distress the edges, but forgot. The paper is distressed so it still has the look I was trying to achieve. 
I enjoyed making this holder and hope to have the tutorial done for a post later in the month.  Creating Stationery Ensembles is my favorite.  True writing is a lost art. 
Just a shot of the back of the Stationery Holder.  The holder size is 7-1/4" x 5-1/4"

Card Stock:  Tim Holtz Tattered Times Stack
Neenah: Natural White 80# Smooth
Envelopes and Note Cards: From My Stash
Die Cuts: Sizzix  Tim Holtz Alterations:  Hardware Findings
Embossing Folder: Darice Embossing Essentials: Borders (3Pak)

Using "Teeny Mouse Hugs"
Pop Up Card
SCS - Tutorial for Pop Up Card
I like delivering the card like this, with all the goodies hidden!  Is this little Meljen's image just too cute?
You could also use this presentation which is equally pretty, but it covers up that cute little digi.  
Well, of course, if you planned to use this presentation, the mouse would not be on the front panel, he would be one of the internal components.  
These are fun to make and you can be pretty creative when choosing your Pop Up elements.

I decided to decorate my back panel, but it is designed to be used to write a note to the recipient.
