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 http://www.quillingpatch.com/  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.  

Glitter window technique

Hi,This is such a fun technique.  I copied it from  Dawn and here is where to find it.
Not much to say because she does it all for me.
I have a couple more cards to share soon.  I am so behind on cards so maybe a  lot of people on my list will get New Year letters.

Hibiscus flower for granddaughters birthday

Thank you Shirley for a gorgeous and simple card to make.  http://shirleystemplates.blogspot.com/
The shimmery paper is foil.  The happy birthday is easy to read when the card is standing up.  Difficult to make cards or type when one arm is in a cast so this is short and sweet.

Thanksgiving napkin card

This is the napkin from Thanksgiving dinner with wonderful friends who are more like family.  It is mounted on cardstock and then mounted on the holograph paper which is more cardboard than paper.  I buy it at WalMart in a big sheet,  The napkin is ironed on the cardstock using Saran Wrap.
So left over swirls and that's it for this time.
