White Chocolate Birthday

strawberry-birthday

A lady needed a birthday card for a co-worker. One of the “likes” for the birthday girl was white chocolate. I found Chocolate covered strawberries by Beccy’s Place and had my husband change it to white chocolate in Photoshop.  I haven’t mastered cutting frames into cards but one day I will figure it out.

‘Tis the Season…for Ugly Sweaters

1 Comment

chiefs-ugly-sweater-christmas

My co-workers and I decided to go in together and get my boss a gift card so I needed to make him a card for all of us to sign. You can’t buy a card when they know you are a card maker!! He is into woodworking so I got cool wood snowflakes, tags and wording that I was going to use to make his card. Well, it was suggested that he is a big Kansas City Chiefs fan so a Chiefs Christmas card would be perfect. So I went searching the internet and came across this ugly sweater photograph. I printed it out on Bazzill white and cut it out. I then Pop dotted it to give it dimension. I used Atlantic Heart Sketch #185 as my inspiration.

2 Hearts Anniversary Card

2-hearts-anniversay-square

I made this one and decided I liked it enough I made another one for another lady who also needed an anniversary card. I made the rectangle one because she needed to mail it right away so it couldn’t be any special postage or mailing to it (square cards cost .68 and have to be Hand Stamp Only…no machine)

The bonus sketch picked out by LindsayE for the November Card Sketch Challenge inspired this card. I needed something that would work with 2 hearts and was romantic and that sketch seemed like it would work. I went through my scrap drawers and found pretty paper and here you have the finished product.

CHALLENGES:
1) November Card Sketch Challenge – bonus sketch. Original sketch was Cardabilities #131.
2) November Inspirational Card Challenge – Product – punches. Used Fiskars border punch.

SUPPLIES:
Cardstock: Bazzill (Crabapple dark)
Patterned Paper: Chatterbox
Accents/Tools: doilies, Memory Box Botanical stem die, Recollections pearls, Cricut, Basic George Cricut Cartridge
