My co-workers grandmother passed and I wanted a clean and simple card to send. It seems that I never have any pre-made cards when I need them.
So to make sure I don't fall short of any cards, I have vowed (to myself) to begin making two of every card that I post. One for the recipient, the other to keep. For cards that are gender related, I will make one feminine and the other masculine.
Lately my design styles have been in a very simplistic kind of way. With this card, although I want to add more, I am satisfied with the cleanness of this design.
Maybe my next design I will add a few more deets and one or two more flowers. Although the picture doesn't capture it, a tiny squeeze of stickles was added to the center of each flower.
I cased the layout from a member at SCS but added a different twist of my own.
Stamps: best blossoms & PTI (sentiment)
Paper: PTI berry, SU white and black
Ink: PTI berry, SU black and Green

This layout is for SC178. My goal each week is to stamp one card and post. Instead of waiting for my Cuttlebug swiss dot folder to arrive I improvised. I stamped houndstooth background in craft white to soften the aqua paper and to add texture to the card.
I used my cuttlebug folder, tied the charm with ribbon and then popped it up using SU glue dots. There are a lot of soft details which is hard to see in the photo but very lovely IRL!
Thanks for stopping by...

I finally received my first set of Papertrey Ink stamps (yeah!) and immediately thought of trying Zindorfs' technique (http://zindorf.blogs.splitcoaststampers.com) for SU's inspiration challenge and what do you think?! I must confess. I am hooked with the technique! In real life, the card is stunning.

Masculine cards are so difficult to make. I saw the striped paper at Michaels along with a package of shimmer texture paper and thought they would make a good pair. I tried to keep the layout simple and not too much fussiness that ribbon sometimes gives cards.
I added some stickles to the truck and leaves of the tree to give is some added shine. A paper punch was used for the dots and they were also adhered with a dot of stickles.
After looking at the card, this card could also be used as a Christmas card for a male by using a holiday sentiment.
My inspiration came from this card:

I decided to make a gate folded card for my daughters graduation announcement. The finished card measures 5x5. I think I like the way this card turned out. Now only if I can find a envelope to fit.
All the papers I got at Michaels. The black is similar in texture to bazzill, as is the orange and the white cs has a nice shimmer which can not be seen. The cap and letters are of foam rubber which has a nice sparkle effect.
|Paper: black, orange and shimmery white|
|Accessories: Puffed glittery graduation stickers|
