I am super excited about this post. I have been working on this for a while now, and it's finally done! When I say I, I mean my brother in law, Ted and I! I have been in love with all of the bingo cards that they different crafters have been using on their cards and scrapbook layouts. I have combed through the internet looking at everyone I could find, especially one that could be used for a variety of projects.
While I was surfing the net, I thought about the Butterflies and Button Cards. I put clear acetate over the card so I could display re-usable embellishments. So, after Ted and I made the bingo cards, I put them on clear acetate. This is great because, you could re-use the embellishments and you can attach them to any pretty cardstock/designer paper to make them match any of your projects.
There are two sizes of the clear acetate bingo cards, the large one is 4 1/2 inches x 3 1/2 inches. The small one is 2 3/4 inches x 3 3/4 inches.
Here are two examples of how I used the cards:
For my first card, I used the large acetate bingo card. I layered it on some pretty Making Memories designer paper. A heart shaped doily, pearls and some sheer polka dotted ribbon were added. For the embellishment, I layered two of my crocheted flowers (with a button center), a pearl spray, and some paper punched leaves.
For my little gift bag/tag, I used the smaller the clear acetate bingo card. It's adhered to some My Mind's Eye Lost and Found designer paper. I added another doily, some of my home made button flowers, crocheted heart, crocheted flower and some little sparkly hearts. The tag is attached to a glassine bag and some dyed seam binding.
Close up of the embellishment:
I am super excited about these, and I have more projects that I am working on to share with you. I have been busy dying seam binding, crocheting hearts and flowers, cutting out the bingo cards, and packaging up supplies to make these cute little goodies. I will be listing them in my Etsy shop this afternoon, so make sure you come back later today if you are interested in purchasing any of these items.
Also, I will have a bingo card download available! If you would like to print your bingo cards out directly onto paper, you will be able to that right at home. The download has 3 (three) pages, each one a little different than the others.
Don't forget, come back later to check out all of the new goodies in my Etsy shop.
Thanks for stopping by,
