Sympathy Card

A very dear friend lost her mom last Wednesday.  I wanted to send her a card to let her know our thoughts are with her, so I made this simple card.

The bird is cut at just over 1 3/4" from the Indie Art cartridge.  I used the shadow layer to reinforce the bird a bit since the main image is so delicate.  The pink and turquoise cardstock used for the bird is from Core'dinations....and so is the pink mat that is embossed. 

For the pink mat, I used the Cuttlebug Floral Fantasy embossing folder and then used a file to sand/distress the image a bit and let the white core show through.

I used a 1 1/2" oval punch for the label on which I stamped the sentiment.  The sentiment is from the PaperTrey Ink Mixed Messages stamp set.  Love this stamp set!  I added some ribbon to finish it off. 

The sentiment on the inside of the card is one I found on the web.  I printed it from my PC and then trimmed the paper down to fit on the inside.  I ran the trimmed piece of paper through my Xyron and then adhered the full sheet to the inside.

Thanks for stopping by.....

Happy 40th

Tomorrow is a dear friends 40th I made the following card to celebrate.  She loves my plan is to go and put a gift card in there also.

I used my scrap papers I had for everything except the card base.  I love how it turned out.  Have you noticed I'm on a 'pink' kick lately?  :)

I used the Forever Young cartridge for this card....sorry, I don't remember which art I used for the banner.  I don't remember what size's the cuts were at since I worked on this a couple weeks ago...but I think she was cut at around 4".  I used a Martha Stewart border punch for the pink border.  The letters for "Happy" and the bling ("40") are from letter sets that I bought at Michael's.

And.....thanks to Okie's (check out her blog here) inspiration, I gave sewing a try.  I love, love, love, the extra something the sewing adds.  I will definitely be doing more sewing on my cards in the future.  Thanks Okie!!  Here is a close-up picture of the border I sewed.

Hope you like it.  Thanks for stopping by.  Hope you have a great day.....
