multi pattern papers for birthday card

Glitz and glam add bling to this 4" x 6" birthday card for my mom this week. The color combos of the pattern papers make it feel vintage but the mixing of patterns certainly makes it feel retro "Moxie Fab"-ulicious!

Thanks to Jolee's All That Bling for the metallic jewel flowers, flourish swirls, and jewel stick-ons. Thanks to Kaisercraft for the pattern papers and DCWV for the adhesive-backed steel gray cardstock.

By using my own stashed supply of shapes templates and French curve stencils, this card was fairly easy to put together in less than an hour (and that includes the fussy-cutting of the flower shapes shown in the inside view).

Hope Mom likes it as much as I do. Happy #72, Mom!

2nd posting of more purchased notecards embellished

This time there are 2 different purchased notecards with butterflies. Color tones are different. One of the cards is shaped.

Again, more challenges to try to match/coordinate with the cover image.

embellished purchased notecards for quick and easy making

Due to all the stresses, I've had only small bits of time to get some thank you cards ready for mailing.

The challenge has been to have the inside coordinate with the cover image.

This first in the series is a sunflower cover image.

World Card Making Day post 2 of 2

My second card made on World Card Making Day has also recycled focal from a pre-printed boxed card.

Like the other, the cardstock colors are from Colorbok, the flower and vine swirl stickers are from Creativity Works, and the two-tone green circle sticker is a dollar discount wall art decal purchase.

World Card Making Day October 1, 2011 post 1 of 2

Many organizations, blogs, and magazines have special events planned for today. I might have time to check out a few blogs, but I've gotten behind on grading due to virus and having to take some sick days.

Due to being in the midst of settling in a new location about 100 miles from where my husband and I have been for the past 6 years, I only have about 5%-10% of my craft supplies moved.

The card creation featured in this posting has parts from a recycled/pre-printed boxed card. The green and orange-yellow cardstock are Colorbok. The vine swirl stickers are Creativity Works. The large pink glitter circle sticker was part of wall art decals found at a dollar discount store. The pink circle helps repeat the circle in the focal image and helps carry the pink from the focal and border to the inside view.
