I made this card for a friend having a birthday soon!!!  I used a card kit from my stash and as often happens I was inspired to change it up a bit.  I adhered the decorative paper to my green card front and then added the embossed strip with a flagged end even with it on the right hand side.  I watercoloured this cute little gift image (Michelle Perkett) which was laser printed.  I trimmed the image into a tag shape and added a slot at the top then applied chalk around the edges to soften its edges.  I modified the ribbon in the slot to be better suited to the landscape format.  I adhered it with double sided tape.  I mounted the tag to my card using 3D foam tape.  You can check out the others here.        Therese

Cards as a gift made up from card kits

 A friend of mine is having a significant birthday in a bit and I made her a few cards.  I made these from card kits I have in my stash!! 
#1 - Embossed and sanded background with a serendipity heart and a bit of fiber.  Check out the other ones here.
#2 - a stamped image encased in a folded circle like a cathedral window quilt with a greeting tag.  I have included a couple of greetings so she can customize the card.  You can check the other ones out here.
#3 - decorative paper with an opening filled with a glittery flower.  You can find the other ones here.

#4 - decorative paper, some embossed rectangles and a layered silk flower embellishment.  You can find the others here.   Therese

Christmas card featuring a little snowman, a sanded background, some fiber and a layered greeting

For this card I started with a piece of blue white core cardstock which I  embossed with the Swiss Dot embossing folder and then sanded.  Love the texture it leaves - soft!!  I added a length of red fiber wrapped around the layer several times and knotted on the left before adhering this layer to a red card front.  The little snowman image (Torico - Birdie Brown) was laser printed and watercoloured before being layered onto a white rectangle and mounted to my card using 3D foam tape over then fiber.  The little greeting is layered punchies and also adhered to my card front using 3D foam tape.      Therese
