We spent the last couple days in the Outer Banks celebrating the marriage of Brittany and Dan.
I wanted to make her card match her wedding invitations so I used some retired DSP called Timeless Elegance.
I did case myself from this card.
On the inside of the card, I used the sentiment below from the Floral Phrases stamp set.
Today is my mom’s birthday, and the image on this card is so fitting.
We had a milk can my mom refurbished way back when I was a kiddo.
It sat in a corner of the kitchen, and it was the “extra” chair pulled up when we needed it.
I sent my mom her birthday card over the weekend, and then made this card on Monday.
Now, I wish I had made this into her birthday card! She would have gotten a kick out of it:)
I used the new Tin Tile Embossing Folder for the Smoky Slate background panel.
I then sponged it lightly with Basic Gray ink.
I used the my Stampin’ Blends- Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, and Crumb Cake.
Of gosh, I missed two little green leaves on the image…will have to fix that!
Of course, I ran the image through the Subtle Embossing Folder- my favorite technique!
It’s just the perfect way to add a little something to finish off a card.
I even did something on the inside- ask my girls, I always forget to finish off the inside on class cards…lol.
I have a video for you today! Yipee!
I made an easel card using the Beautiful Baubles Bundle.
Here is the video:
A front view of the card:
Card Base: Real Red 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 2-3/4″ and 5-1/2″ on the 11″ side
Front Panel: Real Red 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″
All is Bright DSP: 2″ x 5-1/2″
Inside: Very Vanilla 4″ x 5-1/4″
Scallop Square: Gold Glimmer Paper 3-1/2″ square, Gold Strips 3/4″ x 5-1/2″
Squares: Garden Green and Very Vanilla 3-1/4″ squares
Sentiment: Very vanilla 1″ x 3-1/4″, Garden Green 1″ x 3-1/4″
I typically make a traditional red/green card, a purple card,
and this is the card I made for my “blue” Christmas card this year. I was smitten with this
bundle when I first saw it on the Stampin’ Up Alaska Cruise,
and I kept seeing cards with the simple trees and one lone die cut tree everywhere
so I was definitely inspired by so many people.
*I didn’t realize that awesome silver ribbon was retired…then I saw the gold ribbon on the Clearance Rack
and scarfed some up! Makes a great layer of detail without bulk for easy mailing:)
Hello, friends…those deer keep dashing across my craft desk.
Here is a fun one using the absolutely gorgeous Joyous Noel Specialty Designer Paper
and the coordinating Glimmer Paper!
Take a look at all the beautiful patterns in the DSP accented with copper.
Oh, the Glimmer Paper is so wonderful to work with…thinner and no messy glitter adorning my desk and everything I touch!
And, the colors of copper, Merry Merlot, and Tranquil Tide are divine…rich and elegant!
It is a perfect compliment to the Joyous Noel Specialty DSP hence the name, Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper…lol
