I've got a whole bunch of cards I need to make for people atm and it somehow seems like for every card I get finished, I find out/realise there's another one I need to make - birthday cards, thank you cards, baby congratulations cards...
These are the two latest cards I've made; a congratulations card for a friend who's had a baby girl and a thank you card for the friends of my mum who came and house- (and cat!) sat for a week while we were on holiday:
I just had to use this lovely new stamp by Stampavie - it's soooo cute and just perfect for a baby girl card! I coloured it in with Promarkers and used Nestabilites to cut out the image and a mat from pink card. I cut white shimmer card to slightly smaller than the card front and ran it through the BigShot with a nice script embossing folder and rubbed a little Tattered Rose distress ink over the embossed areas down the right-hand side. I added ribbon and gems before attaching to the card base. The greeting was stamped in Regal Rose ink with a Stampin' Up! stamp and matted onto pink card and the image and the greeting were attached using foam tape.
For the thank you card I used a lovely stamp by Paperbag Studios, stamped in sepia ink and matted onto ribbed cardstock. I used a Papermania stencil to dab Tea Dye distress ink onto a gold card base and stamped the greeting (a Stampin' Up! stamp) onto card and attached over a Prima flower.
