A Couple Cards

I should be mailing cards, but it's more fun to make them--haha!  My friend, Betty, is on the TTTC DT & Challenge 092 is her first board.  
I really love all the options, but in the end I went with the top, horizontal row.  I die cut SSS Birch Tree Window, brushed on Flitter Glu & covered with prisma glitter.  That is the best glue!  Almost no shedding after it dries.  
The background was made with Hero Arts Reactive Ombre Winter Sky ink pad.  I spritzed with shimmer mist--so pretty in person.  
The Penny Black word die was cut several times from vellum & I white embossed the Winnie & Walter sentiment.  The panels were die cut with Lil' Inker Stitched Rectangles & the top one was mounted with fun foam.  I'm also entering SSS Wednesday & WAW.
Edited to add: Also entering DCD.


Next is my card for ITP PTI Warm Wishes & ModSquad.  I white embossed PTI Take 3 Winter images & a sentiment from PTI Snowflake Flurries on a scrap of purple cardstock which is a darker more elegant shade in real life.  
I tied on white crochet thread, rounded the corners & added 3 white sequins.  Love using beautiful images for a simple, flat card.  This could be a friendship or Christmas card.

Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.  If your blog address is in your profile or comment, I will visit you as soon as I can.

  8. Lovely cards Greta. I can relate to the "more fun to make than mail". But if we didn't mail them I think we would be buried under a pile of cards!

  21. I felt sure that I'd commented on this post, but its not here, so I must be mistaken. I absolutely love the sparkly scene on the first card and the font used for the Peace title is perfect. The second card is so pretty in lavender and white. TFS
