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 is a 20th anniversary card made for my husband's sister and brother-in-law for their 20th wedding anniversary. I used the color of the bridesmaid dresses for the card base in the form of SU! Tempting Turquoise. The image is part of the SU! Delight in Life set. I stamped two of the flowers, cut them out, and adhered one to the scalloped circle and the second one I popped up with SU! Dimensionals. The flower was colored with an SU! Tempting Turquoise marker and brushed with Crystal Effects. I penned the little white dots all around the circle. I wish I would have embossed the circle with a folder beforehand to give it more dimension.
Of course, it is a gate-fold card design. The white Bazzill panels were run through the Cuttlebug Dotted Swiss folder. And, again, I used one of the sentiments from SU! Short and Sweet set. The punches I used were the SU! Word Window and the Modern Label.
Both the scallop circle and the sentiment help to keep the card closed.
It is a rainy, cool morning in Minnesota. The leaves have been blowing off the trees this week. Looks like we are progressing the the later part of fall. There is still one beautiful maple with quite a few of its red leaves still attached which we can see out our living room window, though. Have a great day wherever you are!
