I LOVE to create greeting cards. This is a place
for me to share some of my favorite cards with family,
fellow card-makers,and friends.
Update: Since I began this card-making blog in 2009, we have moved to a warm, sunny place, retired, and gotten very busy. Even though my love of making cards has not lessened, my time "for" card-making has diminished. I had actually considered taking down my blog because of my lack of time to make and post cards. Instead I will try to post more regularly with a variety of things. Please bear with me while I attempt to expand my topics.
Floral Gate-Fold Birthday Card
Can you believe it? This is the first gate-fold card I have ever made! I have always loved the idea, but never remembered to try it. And I also tried another idea on this card as well. I stamped the flower image in green and then stamped it again in red and used a tiny punch, so I could mount them on the green stems. Now I call that a little putzy, but I loved the end result. Of course, I had little circles flying all over my desk while punching them. The ribbon idea came from a card on SCS. (I will search it out and give the designer credit.) Please excuse me for not sharing all the details on the names of the supplies. It has been a long day. I, mostly, just wanted to share the card! I will mention that on the inside, I used companion paper to the designer paper on the front of the card. I am definitely planning to make more gate-fold cards in the future ... they are a fun change of pace!
P.S. Better late than never, I'd like to thank two Splitcoast Stamper gals for the ribbon idea and for the popped up blossoms on the stamps image. They are Maricela and Robbie (robbier52). Thanks, again!
