Back of the Pocket Card

When I posted the "Pocket Card" a few days ago, I forgot to post the back of the card. So here's the back. Several people has sent emails and blogged me asking how I made the pocket card, well it a little long, but I'll try to explain:
-Cut the base card @ 6 X 11" and fold in half.
-Open base card (now you have the front side of base card & back side of base card)
-Score the edge of the front side of base card about 1/4" and fold it in.
-Trim off excess back side of base card.
-Add double sided tape on "folded" front side of base card & tape it to the back side of base card.
-Add brads near the bottom of the base card (you will need to hide the back of the brads laters). The brads will serve as the stopper for the inside card.
-Cut 1st top layer @ 4 1/2" X 4 1/2" and glue to base card.
-Cut 2nd top layer @ 4 1/4 X 4 3/8" (do not adhensive yet!)
-Place ribbon (&/or) bow on the bottom of 2nd top layer, NOW glue 2nd layer to 1st layer.
-Now decorate the front on your card.
-base is cut @ 4 3/4 X 5 3/4"
-1st top layer is cut @ 4 3/8 X 5 1/2"
-Punch out a "small" circle and glue the bottom half to the back of 1st layer then glue the back bottom half to the front of 2nd layer.
-Glue 1st top layer to base iof "inside pull out card".
-Print the Serenity Prayer on the color paper you want (this will be the 2nd top layer)
-Cut the 2nd top layer (about) 4 X 5" and glue to 1st top layer.
BACK OF BASE CARD (Now you must hide the brad's you used on the front of the card)
-Just eye ball the size cardstock you need.

Crinkle Background Card

This card is called "Crinkle Background" and it's a new technique that is on Mary's blog ( Mary has challegnes every Monday that she places on her Facebook page. This technique is to use saran wrap and 3 different stamp pads. All you do is take the saran wrap and crinkle it, then dap the crinkled saran wrap on a stamp pad and dap it on your card. This makes a wonderful background for brighten your card! This is very easy and fun.

Pocket Card

I have seem so many versions of the credit card holder and I've made several for myself, I thought, wouldn't be nice to make a "pocket card" with the Serenity Prayer inside. This card gives someone hope and strength when times or situations are hard. I know my brads aren't straight and the heart brad is upside down, but I will correct that.
How do you like the card?

Snow Go Away!

I made this card because I have several family and friends that lives within the East Coast and the snow just keeps on coming. So, to give them (and others on the east coast) a little happiest or a smile today, I made this card for them.

Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday Easel Card! I saw this tech on several blogs and I decided to make one without using a brad and I think it turned out okay. The balloons were cut from Stretch your imagination, the heart was cut from Plantin Schoolbook. The words on the card are stamps, I used MS hand punch for the "stopper", also used cuttlebug for the base cover. I hope you enjoy.

Wasn't sure what to call this card. I'm thinking it could be a get well card, Easter card, etc.

Happy Valentine's Day

This is a Valentine's day card I made for my husband, but the lace didn't really turn out actually how I wanted it to. I think the card itself is okay ..I tried :(

Used red ribbon, cuttlebug and spellbinder nest cut hearts.
