Best Wishes Card

I always find male cards the hardest to make. It's so much easier to use flowers and pretty embellishments on cards. So here is my male card.
Studio G stamp-Best Wishes
Metal snap
pattern paper
Blue ink
black ink
Foam dimension tape

I ink the edges of all the paper, then added piercing around the square and the circle.

Round Scalloped Card

I made this card using the Nestibilities for the round scallops. These are great die cuts. I added pierced holes on the scalloped part. I used a SU clear button for the center. I glued pattern paper under the button to match the pattern paper under the scallops. I used the dew drops for more dimension. I used the fiskars scallop punch for the edge of the pattern paper.

Decoupage Card

This card takes just a little time to make. I gathered up 4 different pattern papers to rip into small pieces. I used decoupage to glue to the cardstock. After I laid my layers down I put two coats of decoupage, letting it dry in between coats. When fully dry I ran this through the cuttelbug with an embossing folder. I then attached the scalloped edges and then attached to the card. I used my Nestabilities for the scalloped circles and pierced holes in the scallops. The stamp is from Hero Arts and it is from the clear stamp set. I used colored pencils. The decoupage sure gives this a nice smooth glossy texture.

Baby Tin Book

This is the Front of the Tin

Up close

Tin Open with pages tucked inside

Fully open

Fully open other side

I made this Baby Tin Book for a friend of mine who is having a baby girl. The words Angle and Girl are wood letters, I inked some of the edges but not all. I used the SU journal stamp to add journaling to the pages. On the front cover I used the little skittles for dimension. Also on the front cover I used a scallop punch for borders. Hand cut the flowers from the pattern paper. I used a flower punch for the yellow flowers. I got the tin at Target, they had them on Clarence and it was originally a tic tac toe game. I used double stick tape to attach the paper and chip board pages to the tin. Now all she has to do is add the pictures of her new baby Ü

Crock Card

I just love the embossing folders that they have for the Cuttlebug, and there are lots more on my wish list Ü I used the crocodile stamp from Hero Arts clear stamps. This is a fun set. Great for kids cards. The Photo Anchors are from Joann's.
