Easter Card

This entry is for a card challenge over at http://joanscreations.blogspot.com
*White and gold
*Little or no embellishments
*Embossing ( I did both heat and dry)
*Easter card
I added a bit of mauve because that just seems right for Easter!!
Stamps from Verve, gold embossing powder, cuttlebug folder, and a bit of Krylon gold pen to go around the arch cutout. The front is set up on dimensional dots. Mauve paper is from Creative memories (old stash)

Treasure every day card

Here's my card for Joan's challenge over here. I made my card to look like a chest of drawers with embossing. The ornate top in blue is Spellbinders diecut flourish. Drawers are embossed using cuttlebug folders. Drawers are dimensional. The bird is my splash of color. A little sponging to make it look "treasured". These are the guidelines:

  •  use an embossing folder
  •  something die cut
  •  something dimensional
  •  a monocromatic card with a splash of color

Big Farewell Card

This is an 8 1/2 by 11 inch card. The youth pastor from our church is leaving so I was asked if I could put a card together. It needed to be big enough for 60 signatures. I added inside pages for added signatures. Mostly computer generated with a bit of ribbon and glue to hold it together. I scrounged for some sad looking clipart people and if they weren't sad looking I "fixed" the faces so they did look sad.
