Who doesn't love a good Maxine!

Ya know no matter the age of a woman I think a woman always appreciates Maxine's candor about life!

Last week at stamp club I got a sheet of Maxine images to make some cards with. The lady who runs stamp club is always so nice to bring printed sheets of different images for use. She only charges $1 for the laser printed ones and then she has some for free.

I used several size leaf punches for the embellishments at the bottom of the images. I wish I actually owned the punches but alas...I borrowed them at stamp club! I wrapped some twine around and tied a bow with it. The border is done with the Fiskars Threading Water punch.

These were super simple to make and I think they turned out really cute! Make sure you click the picture to enlarge the image so you can read the sentiments. Tomorrow I will be posting two more Maxine cards.

  12. Maxine Cards are the best cards! I have some of them in my Hallmark program... What a great idea of just printing the designs/sentiment and printing it out to color in myself and add to my cards... I may just do that! TFS! :o)
