Card Fun

Hi friends,

A few more cards are complete.  I am a card sender.  I always have enjoyed the written word.  I don’t think I will typically make several of the same cards but I am enjoying making cards.  I always buy them so I am probably saving money by making them – I know that I am not losing money because cards are expensive.  And these are SO cute!

Simple Happy birthday card.

This card has a lot of layered papers, a doily, a stamped and inked edged oval, and a few rhinestones.  Very simple to make but very pretty.

Another simple card.

The bottom sheet of paper was put into an embossing folder and ran through the embossing machine to create the textured background.

The flower and leaves were stamped and cut with a die cutting machine.  It could also be stamped and cut out by hand.  Papers were layered (one was stamped) and a ribbon was added.  Once the flower was adhered to the paper a pretty jewel was added to make it shine.

Pretty butterfly card.

First the background paper was ran through an embossing machine.  It was then stamped on the bottom (where there wasn’t any texture added).  Pretty tags were made and adhered to the card.  Finally, butterflies were cut with a die cut machine.  I adhered them along their middle to the card and then lifted them up on the sides a bit.  I added three enamel dots and then decided to decorate them with a little glitter glue.  Well….it went a little crazy.  I ended up spreading it around and made it look intentional.

Aren’t they sweet?  I am enjoying sending these cards to friends and loved ones!

God bless!

  1. Very pretty cards. Ashlyn made some pretty ones also. I know it’s fun to try different things in your card making. So many things to use. Also you can use some of your ideas in your scrapping. Now you can make cards to the person’s personality. Mermaid to Brittany, guitar to Haley, sporting theme to your brothers, skateboard for Tim….the list goes on.
