still using my patterned paper...

Here is another card using my Embrace Life stamp set. I made a set of these for my MIL, her birthday is today. I didn't make her a set of monogrammed cards, like I said a few posts ago, I decided on 6 of these all occasion cards. They look better "irl" I stamped the image on shimmery cardstock, and then added Crystal Effects to the petals to make them pop.

I am still using my Ginger Blossom paper from SU! I (heart) patterned paper and have my SU order arriving today with some new paper (yipee!).

I am going to be hosting a Valentine's Day card class in a couple of weeks, so stay tuned for my projects...I LOVE making Valentine's cards. I was thinking about that the other day...I think that may have been where my love of cards all started. I remember making cards for all my classmates (remember red construction paper and heart doilies?) and one year we all made our own mailboxes out of shoe boxes. We kept those on our desk and then we walked around and delivered our Valentine's to the appropriate mailboxes...so fun! Then I would bring them home and go through them all again...isn't it fun getting cards!

Supplies used: (all SU! unless noted) Embrace Life/Papertrey stamps; Ruby Red/River Rock/Shimmery White CS; Chocolate Chip/Ruby Red/Groovy Guava ink; Blender pen; Ginger Blossom DP; Guava double stitched ribbon; Crystal Effects
