This month our theme was flowers. We could choose any products that had flowers or that you could make flowers from. Sharon McCartney sent this card my way. This card was made using the Butterfly punch and they were turned into pansies. Perfect for Spring!
Notice also, how Sharon used the Square Lattice Embossing folder to do the fold on the card. I really like the tab aspect of the card! I get so stuck on the same orientation for my cards, it is great to be inspired to do something different!
Like I said yesterday, this Square Lattice Embossing Folder lends itself to simplicity. This time I used the opposite side of the embossing. I simply used Bermuda Bay and Crushed Curry. I added a little ribbon and wa-la it is done!
Every once in a while I think "what else can they come up with, that I can't live without?" In the new Summer Mini Catalog, SU! has another such product. It is teh Textured Impressions Embossing Folder Square Lattice. This folder is awesome. I received it in an order this week.
It is so easy to use, you almost don't need to add anything but a greeting. But, I also ordered the A La Carte stamp Motorcycle. I don't have any motorcycle lovers in my life, but I like the stamp.
This card is simply Very Vanilla and Chocolate Chip. And, I just love it!
Here is another try with MDS. Ryan had "share" day at school. He wanted to share about our recent trip to Cabela's. I always like to combine his picture printing with a scrapbook page. Kind of "killing two birds with one stone." So, he picked out which photos he wanted to show, and I printed them off.
I mounted it several times rotating between Always Artichoke and Whisper White. Then I embossed the deer and wolf from Natures Silhouettes. I also markered some of the pines from Autumn Days.
I have seen these cards all over on SU! and SCS. You simply use the XL Bird Punch and punch out the wing to make the tulips. I saw a card with a similar layout on SU!'s site. I changed up the colors and the greeting and this is what I came up with.
The DSP is from the DSP paper stack. It looks lovely! I used my Big Shot for the scallop circle and the Circle Scissors Plus for the WW circle.
