Two thank you cards

For CC52 challenge over at Soul Scrappers you have to use embossing folders on a card.

I chose to make two cards using two similar embossed thank you images.

The ribbon on each is velvet in a lovely sage green colour which I am really loving atm.

The flower is a tulle one with copper rhinestones by Webster's Pages. Just gorgeous.

These are nice, smallish cards which can be tucked in with a gift.

Music card

I have made an elegant card for the TTT17 challenge at Soul scrappers.

Hope you are having a wonderful day.  Thanks for stopping by.

My first Pocket Letter

I've noticed this pocket letter/page craze happening for a while now. I've always thought that it would be fun to make one.

June's challenge at Unstampabelles is to make one or make a gift holder. The twist is to include a crown.

I started out by deciding to use pink and green as my main colours. I collected lots of items that were these colours and selected a few sheets of complementary papers as well.  I already had the trading card sleeve to put them in as I keep my ATCs in them.

For the letter portion I made a kind of envelope using my WRMK envelope maker.  I had a pretty butterfly clothing label which I added two paper circles to with some embroidery thread as the closure. I used a small tag to write on (from Kaisercraft).

This is the finished product. I am quite pleased with it.

I hope you will consider joining in this month's challenge. Remember not to use any stamps on your entry in order to be in the running for this prize.

Masculine birthday card

Look at this wonderful inspiration photo provided for this month's challenge at Archiscraps. I decided to have a go.

It is my son's 19th birthday this Sunday and I needed to create a card for him.

I chose the colour of the potted plants as my background and created a diamond pattern using my 1"square maker and some complementary patterned paper.  I added a die-cut with a vellum word and I was done. Teenage boys like simple card.
