Suzie Card-Maker


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.


Paradise Birthday Card Design

After a long dry spell of not posting any cards to my blog, I finally have one to post! (However, the photography skills on this one are seriously lacking. I used my husband's camera since I thought I had left mine in Colorado. I was "in a hurry" to take the picture and rush out the door as well.) I made this card for a dear friend down here in "paradise" using stamps from the SU! Tropical Party stamp set and sentiments from a Hero Arts clear birthday set. The colors I chose were SU! Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, and Pink Pirouette as well as Whisper White, of course. I stamped the images on the 1.5 inch squares with Versamark Frost and embossed them with Stampendous White Pearls embossing powder. I used Certainly Celery to stamp the greenery around the card base and stamped the sentiment with Versafine Black Onyx. The brads are part of the SU! Subtles collection. Thanks so much for stopping by to take a peek!
