Praying for you card that reuses a card panel

Always good to have a few of these on hand as well!!  This card features a panel from a commercial card to which I added a length of white seam binding.  I punched an opening (SU Modern Label) in the top right before adhering it to my purple card in which I added a small laser printed greeting in purple punched with the Word Window punch from SU.  I love the shimmer on this card and it's soft and subtle colour scheme.   These are always quick and easy because the large element is ready to go once it is trimmed.      Therese

A birthday card using new Spell Binders Ironworks Accent die, birthday greeting digital image from The Spruce and some shimmery ribbon

Another card for my stash!!  This one features a die cut from a "new to me" Spellbinders set - Iron Work Accents.  It is perfect for using with round greetings so I laser printed this one from The Spruce which is a fun birthday greeting.  I punched out the greeting (1.75" SU), sponged the edge and added a little silk flower with a sequin and a brad to add some texture to this card.  I adhered the greeting to the green die cut which I had embellished with a clear glitter gel pen.  The background is an embossed and sanded white core cardstock, layered onto pink foil gift wrap and then onto a green card front.  I added the layered greeting to the card using 3D foam tape.  It still needed a bit of something to I added a length of shimmery white ribbon and tied on a short length using a single knot to simulate a bow.  I used a slot punch (SU) to make a cut on th spine to facilitate getting the ribbon end adhered to the inside of the card.  Flagged the ends of the ribbon to finish off my card and that was definitely better.               Therese
