One of my Goals for the new year is to be better about sending cards. I love getting notes/cards in the mail, and I know I'm not alone in that. I love that shaker cards are back "in style" so to speak. I enjoy making them, and I love the little interactive bit of them.
I am already prepared for Valentine's Day for my nieces and nephew. I used the same layout, just different colors.
|Stamps: stamps of life, Die: Simon Says Stamp stitched square, Memento inks|
|I added wink of stella glitter pen to the heart for some sparkle|
Then I started in on the birthdays in January and February.
|distress inks and hero arts white embossing powder|
And a quick circle card for a friend. Jennifer Mcguire posted a card like this and I had to try it. It was fun.
Then I went for a one layer card. All ink. I used distress ink for the backgroud and stampin up old olive for the plants. I have no idea what ink I used for the butterflies. The stamp set is from skipping stone designs. I don't think they are in business anymore, but I'm not certain.
This one was just using some scraps. Don't really love it, but that happens sometimes.
Then I made a thank you card. I wanted to use my smaller stitched square dies from simon says stamp.
I felt like it needed something.
Wishing you a JOY filled day!
