Masculine Card

I made this card so it could be a Fathers Day card or a Masculine Happy Birthday card. I got the sketch from the "Go to Sketches" Magazine. I stamped the ties in Burnt Umber ink and then stamped them again and cut the polka dot tie out and popped it up on the first stamped image. I used my Mosaic CB folder on the lighter brown paper to give it a leather look. Added a few copper brads, then inked up everything!

Candle Bithday Card

I have to admit, this card was floating around in my head for a quite awhile. I got the idea from my friend Ant-me, she had used some real candles on a card candy that I received from her in a swap and I just loved the idea! So, I finally just sat down and made a bunch of them! I used regular white candles and lightly rubbed stickles on them for sparkle. I picked my colored paper to match the ribbon that I got forever ago. The card itself I cut with my circle spellbinders so that it is a circle shaped card. The green paper I ran through my cuttlebug with Swiss dots EF then lightly rubbed it with sandpaper. Then I stamped Happy Birthday on the inside.
Have a great day!

Birds of a Feather

Flock together, don't ya know! I made a set of these cards using supplies I had already. The PP is K&CO, and I used Kraft paper for the base and to stamp the birds on. I paper pieced the birds which was a tedious task when it came to the wings.

Love the Earth

Today I'm sharing a card I made for a tree themed Card swap I am in over at ISC. The left flap opens to reveal space to write in. The stamp is from Unity, and the tree paper is from doodlebug. I thought it was an appropriate card since we just celebrated earth day.
