I've been busy making cards the last week or so, go me! This one is for one of my daughter's co-workers. She loves bunnies, so it gave me an excuse to break out this little darling again. Sparkly paper was used for the background with an overlay of subtle flowers. I used a few strips of Washi tape underneath her name, which helped me with the placement. I'll have to use this trick again. BTW, I'm really loving this Washi tape I bought at Costco a while back!
I cut the sentiment from a birthday die to add even more sparkle, because, c'mon, there can never be too much of the shiny. It actually looks more readable in real life.
The next one is a baby card for the birth of my grand-niece. The only thing I didn't use from this gathering were the bows, I just couldn't work them in. I made it in soft green colors to match the baby-themed Smash Book we're sending to her parents.
This is a card for yet another of my daughter's co-workers, belated as well. I cut the shape from one of my dies, kept it in place then inked the edges (just as I did for the Saint Patrick's Day birthday card last month); it frames it so nicely. I stamped the image of the vase, embossed it in silver and colored it in with pink and blue colored pencils. I glued it to a piece of cardstock to give it more stability so I could pop it up with pop-dots.
I just picked up the little wooden butterfly at the bottom of the card (it was in a pack with assorted wooden insects), and thought it would be pretty if I took some pink and blue ink to it. When it was dry I put two layers of brown pop-dots underneath 3 of the wings so it would look like it was hovering a bit over the corner of the centerpiece.
I kept the inside simple by stamping a sentiment and using a strip of printed paper that matches the front.
Between the cards and the rosettes I've had a very productive couple of weeks!
Thank you for taking the time to stop by! I post things I craft or make in the kitchen and sometimes talk about my family. I'm the mom of identical twin daughters who are all grown up now, and I've been married for almost 40 years. My life isn't very exciting, but I like it that way. Whether you are a subscriber or not, I hope I've shared something you can relate to and feel at home here in my little house out back.
