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.
Today I made an anniversary card for my younger brother and sister-in-law for their 25th anniversary. I didn't go down the silver anniversary road as you can see. You might be able to tell, I LOVE SU! Soft Sky and use it quite a bit. I should really broaden my color horizons ... which I will be doing now that I have added significantly to my SU! cardstock inventory.
I started the card with the Cuttlebug embossing folder you see. It made it so easy to stamp the sentiment right onto the card. I punched the hearts with my Marvy Uchida scallop heart punches and then ran them through different CB embossing folders. They are both "popped up" with SU! dimensionals. I stamped the flower which is from the Vintage Vogue set (unmounted -- love them!) and cut it out. (I continue to push myself to do that. It looks so nice when you do. And I need to work on my cutting skills as well. I always wonder if I flunked scissor cutting in kindergarten!) I added a few pearls and there you have it! I did more stamping on the inside, back, and envie, too. Thanks so much for looking and if you feel like it or have the time, I'd love for you to comment.
