Thoughts of You

This card is for a friend who told me about the job I’m currently in. I’ll be celebrating my one-year anniversary in this position in just a little over a week. Accepting this job has been one of THE BEST decisions I’ve ever made and if it wasn’t for her, I would not be in this position. I am very, very grateful for her!

I cased one of my own cards found here (directions on how to create the flower are in this previous post). For today’s card, I used the 1-1/4” Scallop Circle Punch, rather than the 7/8” punch. To add sparkle to the flower and butterfly, I applied adhesive using a 2-Way Glue Pen and sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds Glitter on them.

I’m not sure why masculine cards are so hard to create, but it took awhile for me to finally step back and say, “Enough! It’s done!” :) I kept it simple by using just one color and a very, very simple layout.

Winter Post

Here’s my Christmas card for the year. I used a bunch of retired items on this card. We recently remodeled our house this fall and the majority of my stamping supplies have been stored out in the garage. It took me over an hour to locate everything I was looking for to make this card — especially the ribbon. I looked through every shelf and box out in the freezing garage and finally remembered it was upstairs in our office in a bag. ;)

Winter-Post-yla

I applied 2-Way Glue to the woman’s sweater and hat and sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds Glitter on them for some sparkle. Pink is not a traditional Christmas color, but I thought it leant a vintage “sweetness” to the card. :) It’s hard to see in the photo, but I die cut a transparency sheet with the Top Note die and the Big Shot — I didn’t want to hide the swirls of the white panel underneath it (you can click on the photo to get a closer look, if you’d like). The snowflake was very hard to die cut with the Northern Frost decorative strip (retired from the Holiday Mini 2010-2011) and the Silver Glimmer paper — I had to use a shim and then still had to poke the little holes with a paper piercing tool. Thanks for stopping by to take a look!
