After a busy winter of studying for the GRE, and battling the Minnesota winter elements (shoveling, getting a tow and a new tire), I finally feel ready to get back to regular blog posts...and home improvements on my title bungalow. I will have updates on the décor soon. In the meantime, here are a few cards I made for recent occasions.
This is a friend's April birthday card made with origami paper, and die-cuts from one of the coordinated collections I own.
The "celebrate" is a rubber stamp I use frequently...it is stamped on vellum. Then, I used the same origami papers to piece together a background for the next card (below).
I stamped a giant dragonfly, and added washi tape, a die-cut "happy", and a smaller punched dragonfly before finishing with some stamped paint splotches.
The anniversary card below features the die-cut "happy" again, plus "anniversary" printed on vellum that I die cut in a circle framed by metallic cardstock.
I added a border-punched piece of metallic cardstock at the bottom for balance.
Finally, I made two graduation cards like the one below (the other one in shades of navy). I spelled out "congrats" with large chipboard letters over rectangles of cardstock...
...then layered them over glittery cardstock from one of DCWV collections.
