Debossed Birthday Card

Isn't this just a happy card - no pun intended.  It's just cheery and bright.  I love how the Celebrations Duo Embossing Folders can create such fun cards.

I used the Oh My Stars Embossing Folder for the background and then added a flagged banner behind it with some of our baker's twine.  I put down a strip of Tear & Tape to hold down the baker's twine.

Here is the inside of the card.  I love it when we have a nice saying that goes along with what is on the front of the card.

I used the embossing folder to make another piece that I added to the flap of the envelope for a nice finishing touch.

Little Birdie Thank You

Here is a sweet little thank you card.  I love the gentleness of it even though it's predominately a black & white card.
I used a sponge dauber to gently swirl a Soft Sky background behind the little bird and leaves to help make the little bird pop.  The berries are made out of pearls colored with our new Blends.  It works so nice and gives this card a little pop of color.
Here is what I did for the inside of the card.
I added a little bird on the envelope and that makes it a nice complete card ready to go out the door.

Wooded Thank You

Once again I'm using that gorgeous Wood Textures Designer Series Paper. I'm telling you it does all the work for you!  I stamped the leaf in Early Espresso ink and then came back with an aqua painter and colored in the leaves using Cajun Craze ink.  I love how the aqua painter gives it light and dark shading - a softer touch.

A little more of the paper on the inside and it really finishes it off.
