Joyful Christmas

This is my first attempt at a non-traditional Christmas card.  Hard to tell in the photos, but the paper is glittery and the ribbon is very shiny and there are rhinestones in the middle of the poinsettia.  I started out sorta plain.  As I creased the top fold so the card would stand up for a photo op, I smeared some of the pewter embossing on a leaf.  So I then had to creatively cover the boo-boo.  Shiny ribbon the to the rescue!!  Bordering on gaudy maybe.....

Guy cards

The top card was done for a swap.  Hubs said he really liked it and would even like to get one that for himself.  Very high praise!  So the bottom card is his birthday card!  

Pansy Punch

This card was for a regular monthly swap for my INK group.  It is kind of fun.  Gingham Garden DSP with melon mambo embossed flowers.  Daffodil Delight added to highlight. The butterflies are embossed in white then Dazzling Diamonds added along with some washi tape.

I have so been the bad blogger!!  Such a long time since I posted! A very busy few months!!  But here I am with some sympathy cards.  Mostly identical layout, color sure makes a difference!!

Just Chicken In

I love this set!!  And I don't use it nearly enough!  This was a get well for a friend - masculine too.  Very hard for me to do masculine cards!!  I really need flowers in there!!  lol

Punch art Bird

I saw this cute little fat-cheeked fella done by Dee Slater. I did a canary - hers was a bluebird.  Love the  little embossing folder accents- I might have to make more of these!
