Bingo Cards

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,
