More scrap cards

If you don't understand this post, you'll have to scroll down for the previous posts.  Basically, I made some starburst cards and cut the end pieces from the starburst and I've been using those scraps to make more cards.  These were made with the smaller end pieces.

I used more of my purchased handmade paper from a huge stack of it that I purchased years ago from Provo Craft.  The paper has flower petals and grasses embedded in the paper. 

The flowers are cut with the 3 smallest sizes of the Peony Nestibilities.  Flower attached with a flower brad, which is topped with a gem sticker from EK Success.  The leaves are cut with a McGill punch.

The sentiment is a Stampa Rosa stamp.  Ribbon slide is cut with a Spellbinders die.  Ribbon is by Offray.  It's hard to tell in the photo, but the ribbon slide and framing layer are pearlescent cardstock.

Personal Journey:  My husband is becoming more alert and eating better than he has since his chemotherapy.  I'm glad the oncologist chose to delay the second dose for another week.  He needed this recuperation time.  Hopefully, he can delay the weight loss by eating more food.


  1. Pretty cards! Love that paper.

    Glad your husband is doing better! Prayers-

  2. Love how the ribbon and sentiment is combined on these to create a belt effect almost. Nice!

    Saying a prayer that everything continues to go well for your husband too Velda. Keep your faith.
