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.
This sympathy card was made with a limited number of supplies since we are down in Florida. Although I am working on populating my workstation here, I do not have any punches, very few stamps, very few dies and embossing folders, etc. You get the idea, I am sure. Some of those supplies will have to travel back and forth with me when we come down for the winter. At the other times we are here, I guess I'd better become more "on the spot" creative!
This card was made using Close to Cocoa and Soft Sky cardstock by Stampin' UP. Thank goodness I had packed a few Cuttlebug embossing folders. I used this floral one for the card. I found some silver brads I had here for the flower centers. I did also bring a Sizzlits oval die. I used it on the Close to Cocoa mat after I had embossed it. Using one of the new SU! clear stamps made all the difference! I only had to stamp one time to get perfect placement. And, lastly, the other thing I brought down was a bunch of "already punched/die-cut" embellishments which included the adorable little butterflies from the SU! Sizzix Embosslits Beautiful Wings die. I LOVE that die!
Thanks so much for looking! Have a great day!
