Birthday card from a kit featuring an embossed circle, a watercoloured heart (digital image) and a font greeting

I am making up the final few card kits from my September cardmaking class.  For this one I embossed the circle and trimmed it.  I adhered the stamped decorative paper onto my aqua card, added a little strip of aqua cardstock from top to bottom and then adhered the trimmed circle to the right hand side of the card.  I trimmed the heart image (Melonheadz) and used a corner punch on all the corners.  I watercoloured the heart to coordinate and then added clear glitter to the dots and in the striped fabric and then sponged the edges with purple ink.  I mounted the heart image over the circle using 3D foam tape.  I tied the purple ribbon to the greeting and mounted it below the image using 3D foam tape.  I did a bit of sponging on the greeting as well to soften the edges so it would blend a little better.


Birthday day card from a kit featuring a resist background, textured border punched strip and a glittered butterfly

Another card from a kit from my last cardmaking class in January  The resist background is silver embossed and watercoloured.  I changed up quite a few elements for this one - added a textured strip, replaced the oval with a round and removed the vellum layer.  I created the white strip by using the Eyelet punch (SU) on both sides of the strip and then adding embossed lines using my score tool.  I really like the look!!  I trimmed it to size and glued it over the front of my card.  I cut and embossed a circle to replace the oval in the kit.  I added a glittered butterfly to replace the white punchie from the kit.  I found a greeting in my stash, trimmed it to size using my cutter on both ends and scalloped decorative scissors on the top and bottom.  I used a push pin to paper pierced all the scallops and then sponged it with pink ink to help it blend in.  I mounted the circle with glue and the butterfly and greeting with 3D foam tape.  I added four little clear rhinestones to indicate the butterfly's flight path.  Worked out really well!          Therese
