Good Monday morning to everyone, I hope everyone had a blessed weekend. I saw this card on a friends blog and I had to try to make it. I'm not sure of the name of this card, but I call it Birthday Fold Surprise Card! I can't get the pictures to come into my computer in the right order, ut I'll try to explain them. The first picture is the front of the card with the tab lifted up (the tab folds into the flip in the front of the card). The second picture is the inside of the card, the third picture is the back of the card and the last picture is the front of the card. This was a fun card to make and I think it just a cute little card. Enjoy.

Well everyone, I'm in a birthday mood because my 53rd birthday is coming up on September 10th! (no I don't mind everyone knowing my age because I'm totally blessed to reach another year older). Therefore, I'll be creating a few birthday cards to celebrate. I make this card using the largest Spellbinders label 8 cut die and I cut it so that the side wouldn't cut. On the base card, using the med size Spellbinders oval die, I cut a hole and I used the cut out and stamped Happy Birthday on it with 2 pearls and glued it inside the card. On the base of the card, I stamped some florals and placed 4 small pearls. That's it! Enjoy.

On this card I was just playing around and was trying something different that is out of my comfort level. I was trying to create a southern setting in the spotlight. It turned out okay, but it could be a lot better. I cut out brown branchs from the Storybook cartridgeand placed them in each corner, the frame is the large Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Square. I printed the picture, colored it used prisma coloring pencils and OMS and then I sponged around the couch and table trying to show a light or spotlight around them. Lastly, I added some gold pearls. Your comments (good or bad) are welcomed.
