Birthday: Stylized Flower with Charm

I used the charms die and then embossed the flower on it. I tied the embossed charm to the ribbon. The inside of the card has the verse on the left and the happy birthday on the right.

I used:
  • Blue and white card stock
  • Charms dies
  • Stylized Flowers embossing folder
  • Blue ribbon
  • Blue gem stick-ons
  • Rubber stamps

Christmas: Lace Tree in Metallic

I had some trouble with the new Lace Tree Embossing Folder because of the size. After several attempts at creating a usable card, I ended up with this creation. I have a slightly smaller width, but the same length as the quarter card stock.

I used:
green metallic textured card stock
white card stock
Lace Tree Embossing
rubber stamps,
red and pearl stick-ons
white ribbon.

Sympathy: Thinking of You

I used:
Blue and white card stock
Pale blue ribbon
Crystal Jewel stick-ons
Embossing folder D'vine Swirls
Rubber stamps
Foam stick-ons

Thank You: Post Card

I used:
  • White and red card stock
  • Rubber stamps for front
  • Embossing folder Thanks
I cut the card stock into fourths, which is the smallest size the post office allows to be mailed.

Using the white card stock for the front, I used three stamps: Thanks so much with a flower, You Rock, and the stamp frame. I used the same color of ink as I chose for the embossed card stock on the back.

For the back, I embossed the red (or color of choice) card stock with the Thanks folder. Then I taped the front and back together. Done! Very fast card.

Christmas: Warm Winter Wishes

I used:
  • Snowflake embossing folder
  • White and purple card stock
  • Snowflake punch
  • Pearl stick-ons
  • Foam stickies for depth
  • Corner rounder
  • White ribbon
  • Snowflake rubber stamp
  • Warm Winter Wishes rubber stamp for inside verse

I used white card stock for the card; then I embossed the snowflake on white also. I put a lavender snowflake on white, then on the purple card stock, rounding the corners. I elevated this piece on foam for depth. I put the ribbon under the elevated snowflake for variety.

I used the rubber stamp Warm Winter Wishes for the inside verse.

Birthday: Boy Running with Balloon

I used:
embossing folder Numbers
off-white card stock
blue card stock
blue striped ribbon
rubber stamps
corner rounder
computer printed verse for inside

I made this card for my son's 21st birthday.

The inside verse was giving me some trouble; I just didn't have a stamp that said what I wanted. So, I went to my computer. I found a verse I liked and printed it on card stock. I discovered to match the color of the ink used on the front, I had to print in color for my verse.
