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.
50th Wedding Anniversary for Liz and Ade
What a milestone! Our friends Liz and Ade recently celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. This is the card we gave them.
I started out with a white Bazzill card base and added a mat of shimmer gold paper followed by a mat of white Bazzill which I had run through my Cuttlebug using the swirl embossing folder (that's what I call it, anyway). I punched out two scalloped hearts in the shimmer gold with one of my Marvvy Uchida punches. I stamped two hearts in Versamark onto SU! Whisper White and then applied gold Perfect Pearls. Using my SU! heart punch, I punched them out and adhered them to the gold hearts using SU! dimensionals. The center of each heart got its own pearl. The sentiment was also stamped with Versamark and then I applied the Perfect Pearls. I used the SU! Word Window punch and the Modern Label punch along with two smaller pearls. The stamp sets I used were: Short & Sweet and Polka Dot Punches. I decorated the inside of the card, too, but I forgot to take a picture of it. I was in a hurry to get them documented before we flew out the door for our drive down here to Florida. Thanks for stopping by!
