Masculine Theme Birthday Card

I have a few birthdays coming up so I decided that I needed to go ahead and prepare. Making cards for men used to be pretty challenging for me, but I think I'm getting it down now. I used an old paper stack that I got from Marshalls years ago. (Yes, they used to sell craft supplies).   

Supplies used: Colorbox Patterned Paper ad Punch Outs
                        Craftwell Twilled Herringbone Embossing Folder

Thanks for stopping by!

Get Well Wheel Card

I love this card but it was a P.I.A. to make! The base of the card is pretty simple. Using my Cameo, I cut out 2 base 4.75 x 6.75 cards with half circles and then a 5 x 7 black base card.  The wheel is a 4-inch scalloped circle, also made with my Cameo. Now, the P.I.A. part was trying to line up the sentiments just right to show through the window! After a few tries, I finally got them somewhat lined up. The tissue box is from the Silhouette Designs Store. 

I used the "Royal Pain" stamp set by The Scrapbooking Queen for the sentiments.

Sorry For Your Loss Card

Anna Griffin "Say It Anyway" Stamp set was used to make the label for this card. I used a gold doily from a pack that I had gotten in my Hobby Lobby clearance haul a few months ago. The cardstock is from DCWV Whimsical World and the card base is from the Tuesday Morning haul of Fun Stampers Journey.  The picture doesn't do it justice, it's a beautiful deep burgundy.

Thank you for stopping by.

Thinking of you card

Sometimes when you're going through tough times, you just need to know that someone cares. Pick up the phone and call or drop them a simple card. You'll never know the impact you may have.

Sympathy Card - maybe

I made this as a Sympathy Card but once it was done, I was like "this is so not an appropriate card to  send someone that's grieving". It's much too chipper! I'm stuck with it unless I decide to change it later to a Birthday Card or something.
Spellbinders Beautiful Lockett die and Spellbinders Classic Oval dies
were used for the label. The borders are Spellbinders Graceful Fans

Thinking of you

I finally got around to playing with some of my dies today and this is what I came up with. I'm trying to go through and use each of my die sets (oh Lord!) at least once. I plan on purging my craft room soon and anything I haven't used must go.  I better get busy!
