Gift

This is long post and I doubt I will have the brainpower to keep all the goodies used to make these cards. This is a birthday gift I made for my favorite client ...... she is total doll. I made her 8 different cards and put it all together in the "All Boxed up Templet" I forgot that foam tape took up so much room ...... the templet looks like me in my jeans ....... busting out a wee bit at the seams :) My issue is for another time but for this project thankfully I had some scor tape and my ATG gun ....... that sucker is not coming apart. I kept the whole "All Boxed Up" pretty simple ..... Kraft card stock and a distressed dot paper from my stash and then on the front I used my nesties to cut out these cute cute cute flowers from a piece of K and Company paper. The photos were hurried because she wanted to see me today and I had to run right out the door .



This first card I used A little Argyle and Life ....... Love me some LJ :) (Lisa Johnson)


This card is Delightful Dahlia w/ Berry Sorbet copics and paper. I added some dark chocolate just because I love that color combo and wanted to put some twill on as well.




Now up is the Daffodil from YOF ...... I used the summer sunrise copic trio and twill. I also used ripe avocado copics, the matching floss and a nice white button




Here is another card using DD and A Little Argyle stamp set and impression plate. The pattern looks very Burberry to me ..... oh I love that store :) I used Pure Poppy Copics and Ribbon. I also used Amy's idea found here with my rick rack die.


The next 2 cards I used my FAVORITE set ....... how much do I love that car?? Here is one for a baby girl ...... love that little ABC charm.......


And one for a little honey baby boy.


Here is a card that is very similar to the one Nicole posted recently........


And last but not least a Sympathy card using emboss resist. I added an impression plate to play up the vintage cream cardstock. I swept the tea dye over the impression to make it stand out a bit more.



So that is it for me, after this post I need a glass of wine ......... I worked today came home made a fab dinner. Laundry in the AM and work in the evening and the same for Thursday ........ YIKES!!! Better catch up on sleep somewhere so I can be on my game for 0 Dark 00 on the 15th :)

I love each and every one of these, and in case you wanted to know (ha ha), my favorites are the "enjoy Life" card, the Happy Birthday one with the FAB argyle pattern, and the last one (love the emboss resist technique with those leaves!) Great cards my dear, you DESERVE some wine after this post ;)

OMG Sue Ann!!! I am just blown away....blow away I tell ya!!! These cards are fantastic and I have to comment on each one...here's what I like about each one:

Life--Love the pop of color with the argyle and button.
Dahlia--Love the white background for the dahlias.
Daffodil--Your coloring is SOO well blended! Love all the white.
Dahlia w/argyle--This one is especially pretty with that perfect argyle pattern and that rick rack trick !! This is my favorite card on this post!
Baby girl--the addition of the ABC charm is the perfect touch.
Baby boy--I LOVE this card too with those scallops and how you layered them!! Is that the large scallop die? If so, it will be on my next order!
Butterfly--Beautiful case of Nichole's card...what color is that? Hibiscus Burst, Melon Berry?
Emboss resist--LOVE the impression plate...it shows up soo well! I don't have any impression plates yet but this makes me want this one!
