Easter card with lattice and butterfly

I love lattice and butterflies so when Shirley posted her freebie I was in 7th heaven.
This is my take on her file.  I know the colors are hard to see as they are so soft.  I used the shaving cream technique for the butterfly. I also really like this fold.
 See Beth, I finally did make something with the shaving cream technique.  LOL

Great grandsons first birthday

Our great-grandson was born 9 weeks premature but is now a healthy, happy one year old.  The sentiment is by Images by Heather and I raised it up on pop dots for a bit of interest.  Not much else to say about this card.  The polka dot background was from another card and the paper that the sentiment is on was in the stash and I don't know by whom.

Masculine Birthday Card s-i-l

The gold embossing is so hard to catch on film.  There is a meadow in soft green between the mountains and the cabin scene.
Stamped with Versa Mark and gold embossing powder.
Pretty basic.
Actually the mountains were an after thought, so the next time I will stamp the mountains first and then the cabin scene.
The nice part of being a crafter is we are always learning from our mistakes.  LOL

Shirt collar card and tissue paper technique

This shirt collar card is all the rage right now so decided to give it  try.  The back ground paper is actually green.  The quatrefoil under it is tissue paper all scrunched up and then glued to cardstock.  The butterfly is cut from a shaving cream technique piece of card.  I had to use a blue background for the card so the tissue paper wouldn't get lost on the lace background.
Pretty simple but fun.

Log cabin masculine birthday

A very simple masculine birthday card.  The stamp is from Inkadinkado in 2013.  I used Versa Mark and then heat embossed with Ranger Queen's gold Royal Satin embossing powder.
The photo corners are from the Dollar Store.  The sentiment is a peel off, and the border is gold from an old Christmas card. The background paper is brown card stock but it shows black here.  :(
I then used a Distress Ink for the envelope with the stamp.

Winter Scene Christmas

Birds Cards

This is going to be one of many like this.   The card front is an SVG  by Birds Cards.  The trees are from an SVG by  The starry sky is wrapping paper that I found at Wal Mart.
Pretty simple.

Upcycle and pop up Christmas card

Sometimes you find an element on another card that just begs to be used again on one of your own.  This season I have come across a few of those so will be utilizing them on my cards.
I love pop up cards and this one was so easy that I made a few of them with different fronts.
