I'm saving all my scrapbooking for this weekend during the crop (can't wait!!!), so I decided to work on more cards while Kayson napped and watched his cartoons this morning. These are some I finished lastnight and this morning:
"you add something special to the mix"
I went ahead and used that quote because this card will be going to my sister-in-law. I thought it'd be a fun inlaws card. The mixer is the one my friend cut me from the new Kitchens cart, the letters are from Sans Serif at 1/2 inch. (great font for tiny lettering btw) I stickled the letters. The "lace" is just white paper cut with my Martha Stewart punch.
"hello friend" is from Wild Card, telephone is from the Kitchen cartridge
"abundance" is cut from Jasmine. The cornacopia (sp?) is from the Speaking of Fall cartridge. I used a pen to create the fake "stitching" around the image to immitate the paper.
"wish"...I'll use this one as a birthday card. I loooove how I did this chandelier....I took the "flower" cut on Home Accents and trimmed off the top and bottom and it resembled a chandelier to me! YAY for finding a fun, new chandelier cut. I then cut three lowercase "i" from Sans Serif font for the "candles". The leftovers from the flower I cut off are the pieces I used for the envelope.
"Beary Christmas". Bear and present are from Joys of the Season, the title is Lyrical Letters.
I love this one!! The flamingo is from Life's a Beach. I've been wanting to cut my Christmas flamingo since I got the cartridge, so had fun with it! The "happy Christmas" is from the Christmas Solutions cartridge. I used some boa feathers for the tail...lol.
the angel is from Joys of the Season. I stickled the paper where it says Peace on Earth. You can't see it so well from the photo, but it looks better IRL.
And them I need a lot of QUICK thank you notes for people who gave things to Kayson on his birthday, so I threw together two sets:
train is from New Arrivals, "thank you" is from Alphalicious.
the lizard is from Life's a Beach. The "thanks" is DonJuan.
Thanks for looking! I am going to miss card making when I start back at work tomorrow. Atleast it'll give you girls a break!
