Happy Birthday!

Good Morning!  TGIF! 

I hope everyone is doing well and looking forward to the weekend.  Today I'd like to share a card I made for the Birthday Card club I'm a participant in.  This card is for a lovely lady who said she likes roses and butterflies.  I think I've come up with something she'll like.

This 5"x7" card starts with a white Georgia Pacific card stock base.  I added a layer of Bazzill pink card stock and then my patterned paper layer from K & Company Brenda Walton Designer Paper.  I love this pattern!  I've used it before on a thank you card a few weeks ago.  The oval tag in the center of the card, the frame around it, as well as the butterfly were all cut using my Cricut and the Art Philosophy Cartridge. This cartridge is a favorite and I find myself going to it again and again.  Through the tag I've put a length of Stampin' Up Rose Red Seam Binding and added three pink roses from Recollections for embellishment.  My sentiment is stamped using a Close to My Heart Stamp and their Cotton Candy Ink. 

Well that's my card for today.  I hope you like it and I hope the recipient likes it too!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Good Morning!!!

I'm back today with another note card. 

For this card I started with a plain white card base from The Paper Company.  When folded the card measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  To that I added a dark brown layer measuring 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 and a layer of patterned paper measuring 4 x 5 1/4.  The dark brown paper is the back side of the patterned paper and it is by Fancy Pants Designs.  I cut a shape for my sentiment using my Cricut and the Art Philosophy Cartridge.  I inked around the edges with Frayed Brulap Distress Ink and popped it up on one thickness of foam tape.  The sentiment is a stamp from the Michaels $2.00 bin, it was part of a set of three.  I thought the scroll design that is under the word Hello went nicely with all the other scroll shapes on the paper.  The sentiment was stamped with Close to My Heart Chocolate Ink.  To finish it off I added two Stampin' Up Brights Collection Candy Dots. 

Check back again next week.  I hope to have more cards to share.

Note Card

Good Morning Everyone!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  Here in NY the weather was just perfect. 

Today I'd like to share a Note Card I made for a friend.  Every year her daughter goes to camp and she  likes to send her little notes.  She has asked me to make note cards for her to send her daughter the last few years and I'm so happy to do it.

Here is the first note card I made.  It's a simple card but I really like the way it turned out.

The base of my card is a 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 plain white card from The Paper Company. My first layer, the oval frame and the band going across the card was cut from turquoise colored Bazzill card stock.  The patterned paper is from the Simple Stories Snap collection.  The oval and the frame were cut on my Cricuit from the Art Philosophy cartridge.  The white oval is cut out of Georgia Pacific card stock.  I used Dew Drop Versa Magic Turquoise Gem Ink and a Close to My Heart Stamp for my sentiment.  The inside was left blank so that Mother could write a loving note to her daughter.  I think this card came out great.  I'm going to make a few more of these to keep on hand for those times when you need a quick card.  With a change to the sentiment, I've got a card for any occasion. 

That's my card for today.  I hope to be back again soon with more note cards to share.
