Christmas card with a snowflake brad, green tag and rhinestones

Here is another card I made with the donated supplies.  This card was already started but I did add a few elements to finish it.  The green tag was already attached to the card but the snowflake element was damaged so I removed it.  I was able to cover up the glue marks where the snowflake had been by adding this large bell sticker (it also needed double sided tape support) and then I added a red rub on greeting below the sticker.  That finished off the tag very nicely.  It seems somewhat a drift on the large area of striped decorative paper so I chose a strip of red paper and positioned it below the tag and that helped.  After gluing the strip in place I mounted the tag with assisted foam squares from the supplies. I added three little clear rhinestone on the right which is always appropriate for Christmas cards!!  Pretty happy with the way this one came out.  Therese

Another sympathy card featuring a 3D butterfly embellishment, decorative paper and a laser printed greeting

For this sympathy card, I started with an ivory card.  I added a dark green layer and then trimmed a piece of laser printed decorative paper to leave a border all the way around.  Next, I punched a 1 3/8" opening on the lower right hand side and adhered this layer to the front of my card over the green cardstock layer.  I sponged a bit of colour to the laser printed punched greeting before mounting it to my card using double sided tape on both ends and a small piece of 3D in the center which gives it a bit of dimension.  The butterfly was discovered in my stash and was the perfect colours for this card.  I did add a bit of clear glitter to the body so it would coordinate with the spots on the net wings.  A nice simple sketch which nicely features this beautiful paper and a butterfly.     Therese
