Masculine thank you card

I made this card by watercoloring the background, then die cutting the Fresh Pine Curved Border by Memory Box from green cardstock.  I added a wide border with the same cardstock by using 2 rectangle dies from the Hero Arts Infinity set.  These are mounted on a cream cardbase .  The sentiment is a gold metallic sticker.

Thank you cards

After Christmas, it's time to make thank you cards.  I received a darling tea cup die from a friend and decided to use it to make a thank you card.  I die cut 2 of them - 1 from blue cardstock and one from white, then used the cut out pieces in the opposite color.  This resulted in 2 cards.

I will wait to add a sentiment to the second card, when I decide where it will go.  I have more cards to make, but these are finished today.

More Christmas cards

After I mailed the cards I had made previously, I decided I needed a few more.  This card was made with some new dies and stamps from Taylored Expressions.

Christmas cards

I got very late in creating Christmas cards this year.  I ordered some new supplies in recent sales and used some of them to create my cards this year.  I made them all with the same basic design, but changed the colors of some the cardstock.  I used what I had on hand.  The background is made with pearlescent cardstock.

The large holly background die is from Taylored Expressions.  The sentiment stamp is a very old stamp by Inkadinkadoo, embossed with Chinese Red embossing powder by Ranger.  I used Spellbinders dies for the ovals.  The holly berries are made with a red Pearl Pen by Viva.
