A Couple of Cards

Sharing a couple of cards I made tonight. A belated graduation card and so I don’t make that mistake again, a birthday card that I can send early!

For the grad card, I wanted to do some different colors than those I’d been using for my son’s friends cards. Stuck with school colors for those and am so over that! This time just went with paper I liked which happened to be from DCWV’s Lemon Flower Stack. Hard to tell from the pics, but a lot of the papers in this pack are glittered. Oooh la la!

Yellow Grad Card
I stamped the focal image using this ink which I’m in love with:
Yellow Grad Card Closeup
It’s chalky but pigmenty and provides great coverage.

I used the floral background from the paper stack along with a scrap strip of another print from a previous project from the same pack. Say THAT three times fast!  Embellished with The Twinery’s twine in honeydew and some KandCo self adhesive scrapbook borders.

For the birthday card:
Pink and Green Birthday Card
I remembered to photo my supplies which included more Twinery twine…honeydew and pink sorbet, some Ann Butler designed Kand Co paper and Tim Coffey designed KandCo dimensional floral stickers. I ran a scrap of white paper through my Cuttlebug using damask embossing plates and then layered everything as shown onto a white 5x7 card.

Hi Carol
Beautiful cards. I like the fact that you used non-traditional colors for the graduation card. I recently bought the Lemon Stack, and love its color combinations. Are you relaxed now that graduations are over? [I am]

Your cards are beautiful. I love the yellow card and the twine on the birthday card is just so cool. Great details.

BTW, I printed out your 4th of July prints and have them up on my mantel.

Check it out if you want.

beautiful. I'm not generally a yellow fan but I really like the yellow card ... may have to buy some yellow ink myself after seeing your creation.
