Wedding: Orange and Embossed

My daughter Aaron had a wedding to go to, so she helped with this card. I used orange and white card stock, ribbon, rubber stamps, and dimensionals . We used the stylized flower embossing folder. For Your Wedding was put on dimensionals. The inside has a stamped wish for a wedding. Simple and elegant.

Embossed Small Flowers

My grandchildren Cece and Patrick helped me with this card. I used the small flower embossing folder on purple and lavender card stock. The flower stamp was attached to the card with a dimensional. The wide grosgrain ribbon became the focal point for the front. The inside of the card was stamped with a special day wish.

Father's Day: Canoe


The canoe, paddle, and skunk are from the same Stampin' Up set. I stamped them twice, cutting one of the images out. Then I put the cut-out images on dimensionals, placing them directly over the first stamped image, giving a truly 3-D effect. The inside of the card is stamped Happy Father's Day!


I used:
Green and tan card stock
Designer paper

Rubber stamps

Dimensionals

Eyelets

Twine

Never Ending Card: Birthday













This is a fun and easy card to make. I used lavender and white card stock with various birthday stamps. I made this video to show how the card continually folds to reveal another card.
