This card was created for my friend Gina. Her grad dress was similar to this one in a sage green minus the bow. For the card the bow came in handy though as I wrote "Grad 08!" down it in white. The word "Congratulation" is on transparency kept on by two green brads. The matching envelope is black to go with the card and then it has a seal which matches the dress.
Here are some pictures of the tea pot cards the children made at church for their moms on mother's day. We made cards in the shape of Tea pots (Which were pre-cut). The children just had to decorate the cards. Then we attached to tea bags & a tag that said "I think you're tea-rific!!" to the handle of the tea pot with ribbion.
I made these cards for the children's ministry volunteers at my church. I made 7 of these cards. They say "Thanks for Leaping in and helping out in Adventure X." Adventure X is what we call our aged 3-Grade 5 group. Then there is a frog on it for the leaping part.
I found this cute picture of a Zebra so I had to use it. Turns out my mom just bought me a Zebra puppet for children's ministry so it worked out great. So I decided to make a card to thank my mom for the puppet.
I made this for my friend Trina's Birthday. It's an inside joke between us. We have always just joked around about $100 and said I give you a $100! So I printed a picture of a $100 bill off the internet. So no it's not real. I used transparency to include Happy Birthday and held that on with the green brads and wrote I give you a $100! :) in the corner.
I made this card for my mother on Mother's day. For some reason my mom is really into giraffe's these days. So of course I had to make her a giraffe card. Since I love Curious George I found a picture of him sliding down a giraffe's long neck. On the Back of the card is a little metal peice which is a giraffe, that I got from my grandma's random sewing collection. As i've said before she's been going through it and what she doesn't need anymore she will pass it on to me. The flower on the front is a flower shaped brad. Plus Happy Mother's Day is done on transparency and held on by little white buttons. I was out shopping and I came across this cute giraffe stuffed animal. I just had to get him for my mom, he was a decent price too. Plus it went with the card as well. My mom loved both the card and the stuffed animal very much. :)
This is a card I created for my friends who are getting married later this month. They both really like horses. So I decided to make this a cowboy boot shaped card for them. The transparency piece that says "Congratulations on your wedding" is held on by two blue heart shaped brads. Then there is the blue ribbion with a Cowboy hat button. The different blue accents on the card represent "Something Blue"
This is another card I created for my friend Trisha. Her cousin just had a baby so she needed a Baby card. It's a baby rattle. I used transparency and there are little buttons under the transparency and if you shake the card a little the buttons actually rattle like a baby rattle it's really neat. As you can see the card says "It's a Boy" and on the rattle it's hard to see in the picture but it says Connor which is the new baby's name. I got the idea to make this card out of paper crafts magazine. There is also a matching enevelope too.
This was another card requested by my friend Trisha for a friend of hers. Her friend really likes Dobby from Harry Potter. This friend also likes Dr. Pepper so why not combine these two things together into Dobby holding a Dr.Pepper can. I used the red & Yellow star ribbion and red and black paper because those are colors at hogwarts and they all work together. There is also a matching envelope for this card too.
One of my friends requested this card for her friends Birthday. They both like pugs and when they hang out they usually go for sushi. I was also told the person's favorite colors and this is what I came up with. There is also a matching envelope as you can see.
This card is for a friend. She asked me to make a card for her mom for Mother's day. The Bible verse Numbers 6:24-26 and the part where it says Happy Mother's Day!!! are transparency's and are held on by little buttons.
*This is also my 100th post here on my blog, so I thought that was noteworthy. I've made alot of cards. I'm know it's well over 100 because some I have posted together.
