Super simple birthday card. My mom needed some cards in exchange for a blanket she made me, so this was one of the last ones. I paper pieced the envelope and should have pieced the candles, but I was getting sick of cutting and decided to just marker them.
Paper: Green Galore, unknown blue DSP from Wal-mart, Summer Sun
Stamps: Send a Celebration, Itty Bitty Backgrounds
Ink: Tempting Turquoise
Other: stickles (on candles)
Next one. This is for Viva La Verve's June Week 3 Sketch Challenge with a twist from Splitcoast. The challenge was to use lots of white space. I love how this turned out! Very simple, elegant--perfect for a sympathy card. In fact, I asked my husband if he thought it needed anything, and he said, "What else can you do to a sympathy card without it looking gaudy?" Very true. There is sponging around the sentiment (one of my favorites from Verve), and there is also a scored line for a border around the edge.
Paper: Bella Rose DSP
Stamps: Plain Jane Psalm 46:10
Ink: Real Red
Other: scallop scissors, scallop circle punch
Real fast: my second take on the VLV June 03 sketch. This time this card is a get well card. I think it turned out just as elegant! I just used my ranger distress ink to distress the edges of the card and add a little bit of color.
Paper: Bella Rosa DSP
Stamps: Verve- Because of You, Fluttering By
Ink: Ranger Distress Walnut Stain
Other: scallop oval, CM cutting system ovals
Thanks for stopping! Have a great day!
PS--I am making some super sweet Father's Day projects--I think I will be able to post them safely without spoiling the surpise tomorrow or Thursday. Check back then!
