ANOTHER CHRISTMAS CARD

As I was making cards with this design (which I learned how to do in Cyndy's technique class) I couldn't help but think of the many Christmas carols that have been written in celebration of our Saviour's birth.

This card technique is simple, so I am including the dimensions of the dsp used here in case you want to try it.

Cut squares of dsp at:  3 1/4", 2 7/8", 2 3/8", 1 7/8" and 1 1/2"; then cut them in half.  You will have two rectangles of each size for two cards.  After folding down the top right and left corners of each strip, mount them on your embossed panel as shown, starting at the top.  Add a star and either a tree stand or greeting at the bottom.  I used a Crumb Cake card base and one layer of black cardstock underneath.

TODAY IS MY BIRTHDAY!

I've decided that birthdays are not about how old we are, but how long we've lasted!

MADE TO FIT...

...a standard sized 6 3/4 envelope available at any supermarket.  The paper is cut to 5 1/2 x 7" and folded in half.  This size works well with strips of any widths (as shown) and easily works vertically or horizontally.

CHRISTMAS IS COMING!

This makes the 43rd card out of 105 needed!  I thought I'd do something a little different than the usual card.  Here is the inside:


I'll be posting some of the other cards as I go along.  I usually try to come up with four or five designs each year, just to keep it interesting.

YET ANOTHER DAISY CARD

I sure am getting a lot out of my daisy punch!

This blossom has three layers of petals.  The top 2  layers are sponged with yellow ink and streaked with gold WOS.  In the center is a gem from my stash which I've had for literally years.

The birthday greeting was embossed with gold ep, and the leaves were stamped and fussy cut.

The rainbow dsp was a scrap from a previous card.and is a nice backdrop for the flower.

SILVER STAMPERS UNITE!

This is the card I'm bringing for everyone to make.  The kits are all made up and ready to go for our get-together next week..  
Pop-up cards are always a lot of fun!

NO DAISIES TODAY!



Talk about easy...

This was done with a few peg stamps and a hand drawn vine wreath for a late September birthday card.

The greeting is from an old wooden stamp set.
