Cards to Friends



Just sharing some cards I sent to friends. The first one was inspired by Lisa's Button Boutique post.  This may be the first time I actually made a card the same day I saw the inspiration!   The next 2 cards include glittered borders.  I already made 2--HERE & HERE--after seeing the PTI MIM video & I'm sure there will still be more as I love what they bring to a card.  The last card was re-made from a challenge card.  I put the top layers on the original card with repositionable tape & took them off as soon as I took the picture.  I wanted to use another company's flower image & an Easter sentiment, plus it had to be flat to go overseas so couldn't have a bow.  Worked great!  Just wasted a bit of ink & paper (I can use the bow on another card) rather than having an entire card I really didn't need.  Since it's green I'm entering it as my 4th card for the Die Cut Diva's challenge.  Wishing you a lovely Easter weekend.  Thanks for taking time to stop by my blog.

  4. Hello Greta
    Gorgeous whimsical spring card, and of course the Green beauty is one I can attest to as being good as it looks here, as I have it sitting on my buffet. What a shame that you have to remove all your dimensional elements from your cards to post. I am glad you shared these Greta as they are all happy cards.

  14. These are all so pretty. I'm a sucker for white embossing over color or pattern and I absolutely adore the last card. The green is so fresh and the layered shapes are perfect.
