Shelli's Going Away Card

I made this card for my friend Shelli who is moving to Germany next month. I'm so jealous! She has been such a good friend and I wanted to show her how "grateful" I am to have a friend like her. I got this idea from a sketch from Mojo Monday. I used some of my Glossy Accents to make the butterfly pop a little bit. The butterfly is from the Straight from the Nest cart and is cut at 3". The shape behind it is from the same cart and cut at 4".
I used pop dots to give it a little depth. Thanks for stopping by!

Baby Shower Thank You Cards

Hello everyone! Next weekend a good friend of mine is throwing me a baby shower, she's so sweet! I decided to go ahead and get a head start on making the thank you cards. I also need to send some to family members who have already sent us some adorable baby things. I used the bedding that we are planning on buying for our little one as inspiration for these cards. The bedding is a cute jungle pattern with all of these cute jungle animals all over it. I'm pretty happy with how these turned out.
I used Pop Dots to add some dimension to the "Thank You" sentiment...
And for the animals.
And here is the sentiment on the inside of the card. Thanks for stopping by! <3

Paper: Martha Stewart Baby Boy Paper Pad
Ribbon: American Crafts Dear Lizzy Leafy Ribbon
Embossing: Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Folder

Mother's Day Card II

This is the Mother's Day card that I made for my mom and nana. They absolutely loved this card. I wasn't sure if i loved it at first, but I think it's starting to grow on me, haha. I got the card sketch from Got Sketch again. The striped background is cut from the Storybook cart at 5". The flowers are from the Straight from the Nest cart, the stems are cut at 2 1/2" and 3", the flowers are cut at 1" and 1 1/4", and the middle of the flowers are cut at 2 1/2" and 3". I used my Glossy Accents for the middle of the flower to make it pop. The stamp is from a collection of stamps that I got from My Creative Time. Thanks for stopping by! <3

Mother's Day Card I

Here is the Mother's Day card that I made for my mother-in-law and step-mother-in-law. It's a bit late getting them out, but better late than never right? I got the card sketch from Got Sketch. I used the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder for the background and I embossed a stamp with blue glitter embossing powder. Thanks for stopping by!
