Thank you card reusing a beautiful rose card front

I am seeing my Mom in the next few days and I wanted to thank her for all the good things she has sent my way in the last few months.  I found this beautiful roses card front in my stash and decided to use it to make a card for her.  I trimmed off the card front and layered it onto green cardstock.  There was a bit more room on the bottom so I trimmed it real close with scallop decorative scissors and pierced each scallop with a push pin.  Adds just a bit of texture and a decorative element to the card.  Next, I glued this large element to a coordinating red card front!!  I really wanted to add another element but in the end I could not decide what it might be so it remained as it was!! 


Embossed heart background with a chalk greeting for an anniversary card

 I need an anniversary card for the weekend and so went looking in my stash of card kits to see if I had anything appropriate and found this card from my last regular card class.  Just goes to show you how versatile this technique is!!
The hearts were gathered from my heart punchie stash and glued to a quarter sheet of white cardstock then embossed with the lattice embossing folder (SU).  After trimming it to size (4" x 5.25") I added the ribbon onto which I strung the greeting before adhering both ends to the back of the layer using double sided tape.  The greeting was one created for the class using a chalkboard tag set which I downloaded from online.  I added the greeting using a chalkboard font after digitally removing the previous art.  I laser printed it onto white cardstock and trimmed it out of the large sheet and then fussy cut it to leave a slim border.  A small hole punch quickly punched the holes on both ends.  After adhering the greeting I glued the large element to the front of a red card and tied a short length of ribbon with one knot to the length on the front of the card to simulate a bow!!  It always special to celebrate significant anniversaries with special people!!!  Therese
