I made this card for my newest sister in law...she is a bit younger then me but still from the Rock n roll era and I thought she'd like this. She is also big on collecting antiques.
Next up was my sisters birthday card...nothing fancy, just flowers, a fence and a butterfly I had picked up the last time I was in Michaels.
The ribbon was from Wal-Mart, the butterfly was by Martha Stewart and the flowers were drawn by me and cut on the Cameo. I drew the leaves in the Silhouette Design Edition program and just left them as printable and not cutable...they printed out with my greeting when I printed the card layer and then I added a bit of white gel pen to highlight the tops of the leaves. The flower centers are wiggly eyes that I painted with pearl white fingernail polish and attached with glue dots. The paper is all AC cardstock. The fence was a cut file I downloaded from the online store.
Ok...last one for this session...another birthday card I created in SDE.
I have lots of embossing folders and never think to use them as much as I should. You would think I would because I love the look...something else I don't think about often enough is rounding my corners.
The embossing folder is a Darice. The paper and butterfly came from Robin Sampson too and the kit is called Pleasure. I just filled my shapes, traced the butterfly and used the Print n Cut feature in SDE. I do not remember where I got the Happy Birthday sentiment...I'm thinking it came from Miss Kate Kutables but not sure. Added some music to the background before I embossed it and rounded the corners...pretty easy. You can't see it in this picture, but I added glitter to the butterfly. I thought the sentiment tag would look good with turquoise on the edge but it didn't turn out too good...looks pretty sloppy to me but as usual, was running late and didn't have the time for a re-do...I'll fix it the next time I make this card..LOL
UPDATE: I figured out the music background on this card, as well as the Happy Birthday sentiment. The paper was by LaurieAnnHGD and came in the After Five Designs Birthday Celebration Digital kit. I originally thought the greeting came from Miss Kate Kutables but it didn't. It was from this same kit, Birthday Celebration, and it was designed by tborges. This collection was made by 11 different designers. It's hard to keep track this way...
This isn't a card but we got to enjoy some color in our landscape right after Christmas..in fact, we were taking down Christmas lights on a fairly warm winter day when this fellow decided to bless us with some beautiful sky color....too bad he was moving so fast and I didn't have time to change the lens on my camera.
Spring will be here some day!
