This afternoon I spent all my time making some cards. It was fun to just do one after another.
This was my first one. It was so pretty outside I just wanted to make something cheerful. Very simple. I just cut your basic rectangles and embossed a few and stamped "With Love" and voila! Oh, then I added the pretty yellow pearls. Very simple. Very quick. Very pretty.
My next card was just thrown together. I had some scraps that I wanted to use and this is what I came up with. Again, basic rectangles, some embossing and a "Thank You" stamp with a few pink pearls. The flower stems I made with gold-edged green ribbon. It turned out very nicely I think. Another fast and easy one.
My last card took a bit longer. I used my trusty Black Cat Lynx to cut out my shapes which are actually Penny Duncan Shaplies files. Thank you Penny! I layered every other layer white and silver cardstock. I then added the flower which was a file that I got from somebody on the MTC forum. I am so sorry but I do not know whose file it is or I would surely give credit where credit is due! If anyone knows, please let me know so I can add the owner's name of this file! Anyway, I embossed a bit, taped a lot, and added a few little rhinestones at the four corners and a larger one in the center of the flower. This is a wedding card for the daughter of some friends of ours. I am very pleased with how it turned out. I am sorry my photos are so dark. I should have waited to take the photos in the daylight, but I won't have time tomorrow!
So, you see, I had a wonderful time this afternoon just whittling away the hours making pretty things. I like those kinds of days! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful week!
