Wedding Card

I made this wedding card for friends.  This is by far the most complicated card I've ever made.  It took me quite some time to figure out what I wanted in all of the numerous spots to fill and how I wanted to personalize it just for them.  Of course I couldn't just take a standard trifold card size either.  A couple of the panels weren't the right size for what I wanted so I adjusted the over all measurements. And the layers!  There's layer upon layer.  The front has eight and a couple are even popped up.  I most like the bride and groom hearts on the front.  It's difficult to tell but they are stamped and heat embossed in a sparkly lace design.  The Celtic crosses are just for me :)

I love how this turned out and they loved it as well.  It's not something I'm going to be doing very often, but I really enjoyed making something so special for such a special occasion

Happy Birthday Card

I've been busy creating a better crafting area in my house to I haven't had a chance to actually make any cards in the past little while.  Now that I'm (almost) finished I can get back to creating!  There are a lot of birthdays in my family in January and February so that'll be my focus for the next little while.

I created this card for my brother.  It's bright and cheerful, but stills seems gender neutral to me. 

AnnaBelle stamps blog is having a color challenge this week so that's how I decided on the colors.

Valentine's Day Card

Wow, its been a long time since I've posted or entered a challenge.  It seems that all of a sudden it was time to make some Christmas cards and tags and now it's January.  Now I'm back to finding challenges to provide some inspiration.  The Catch the Bug blog is still one of my favorites.  I love the Bugaboo images as well.  They had a sale on in December so you'll see a lot more of their images on my cards :)  Today's card has been created with Bugaboo's 3 Hearts digital stamp.  CtB has a sketch challenge and I'm all about Valentine's Day cards right now so this is what I came up with.
