With Sympathy

When these times come up, we want the appropriate card to convey our feelings of caring and concern. My Sympathy card is embossed acrylic over kraft paper. Only the acrylic is colored, so it floats. The cathedral trim down the left side, as well as all other trim and lettering is dark green. The sheer ribbon and bow are a soft lilac. The pearls add a peaceful elegance that anchors the whole message.

New Arrival

It's Mellow Yellow week at Cuttlebug Challenge, and I created three distinctly diffent cards, all in yellow, to get folks going. Here they are:

This one is a sweet little giraffe from the New Arrival Cricut cartridge welcoming baby, as well as an image stamped on white and matted in yellow, then layered on a horizongal stripe over the soft yellow gingham background. The New Arrival embellishment at the lower right is a metallic piece given to me by a friend. Cute, eh?

Happy Seventh Birthday!

How fun it is to get a card with your special birthday spelled out all over it! This one is for a seven year old, but it could be done for any age. I chose a bright, vibrant yellow, accented with red ribbons and red pen work to make this a real eye-opener. The 7's are heat embossed in clear, making them like glass. The cupcake is embossed to mimic real papers and frosting, and there is plenty of diamond dust to make it all shine! The birthday message comes through loud and clear with the embossing in the lower corner. Happy Birthday to you........

A Sunny Hello

This sunny greeting features layers of crisp white, buttery yellow embossed flowers, then stamped sunflowers. The bow is shimmery and full. The Sunny Hello greeting is in rich chocolate brown. All of the edges are inked to give it dimension, and this card is sure to bring anyone a bit of sunshine.

Thank you Flower

This floral message of thanks is set on a damask looking background created by heat embossing a clear design on the black cardstock. The flower and ribbon stem, as well as the plaque in the upper right are all dimensional, and make a beautiful presentation. There is a single embossed medallion on the upper inside of the card as well. Who would you like to thank today? To order my cards, just leave a comment, or email me at the address listed on the right. Have a great day!!
