Birthday Card

I am working on three big albums right now and wanted to do something different and relaxing, so I made a quick Birthday card. I love deep rich colors and especially this season when it is starting to rain in Seattle (until next May or so) I wanted to use some color in my card.

Floral Birthday Card

I love floral cards. They are so versatile and can be used for any occasion. I used die from cuttlebug by Anna Griffin to cut my flower spread, but it looked too flat so I added some handmade flowers.

Daisy Card

My mom's favorite flowers are daisies so when I needed a card for my mom it was an easy decision which flowers to use. I used sunflower dies but I think that it looks just like daisies especially with yellow puff paint centers.

Pastel Birthday

Spring is barely here and I already started to preparing for June. And I am not talking about planting flowers so I'll be eble to enjoy them in summer months, I am talking about stocking up on Birthday Cards. June is THE month in our family for birthdays and other anniversaries, so I need to start early to be ready. Here is my first card for a birthday

ALL flowers are handmade and I am so-o-o proud of myself.

Butterfly Card

Butterfly is a symbol of summer for me. When I see butterfly for the first time after winter it ALWAYS make me smile and lifts my spirit. It will be few more months until we have warm enough weather here in NW for butterflies. I decided to make card using die from Cheery Lynn, but I used "negative" cut for this card.

Birthday Card

Hello. As a cardmaker I do not shop for cards and was shocked to find out how much cards cost in general stores. I told my relatives never to buy cards again and if they need one, I always have some extras or I can make one for them. Same day my sister ordered a card for her mother in law. Here is the quick card I made for her

 This card is 3D and the problem I Have with handmade cards is that they never fit in the envelopes.
Any solutions?

Bible Verse Card

We had cold, but sunny weather this week and all my thoughts are about upcoming spring. What flowers to plant, shrubs to trim etc. Most of my projects this week show where my thoughts are as they all have flowers on them.
I made this pretty card "just because",  I'll end up giving it to a friend, but for now I love looking at it, this verse is such an inspiration to me. 

Blue flowers are handmade

Male Birthday card

Me and my husband were invited to friends birthday and 15 minutes before we left house I realized I don't have a male card to put the gift in. 
It literally took me 5 minutes to make this card. It made out of shimmer cardstock which adds some festivity to the card.
