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.
Red, White, and Blue Birthday
For this birthday card, I chose red, white, and blue just because I like them together. (They are also two of our grandson's favorite colors. :D) The cardstock is by SU! using Real Red and Night of Navy. The gingham ribbon is from my stash. The Cuttlebug embossing folder is the happy birthday words folder. I used my Marvy Uchida punches for the image circle and scallop mat. The stamp used is SU! Party Hearty. The little birthday gift in the center of the "b" is popped up using SU! Dimensionals. I love using the Signo white gel pen to accent. I used my corner-rounder (which isn't really doing a good job of rounding anymore) for the bottom of the card base and the Night of Navy mat. This is the kind of card design that is great for mass production. I used Real Red, Night of Navy, and Glorious Green to stamp lots of the images, made a variety of Cuttlebug-embossed mats, and also used a variety of punches and ribbon.
It is a beautiful fall day here. Hope it is where you are as well. Thanks for looking!
