Birthday Wishes Card

Hi friends.  Today I’m sharing a pretty pink and brown birthday card created with some of my favorite Cheery Lynn Designs dies and beautiful ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
8-27-16-1This beautiful Quadrafoil Square Doily is up there in my top all time favorites list.  Isn’t it gorgeous?!

You know I’m also in love with making beautiful handmade roses and today I used the wonderful Medium Tea Rose die.  I cut the layers in brown and tan and I inked the tan layer with an old script background stamp for texture and also inked the edges.  I then shaped the layers and assembled.

Thinking of You Card

Hi everyone.  Today I’m sharing a quick and easy card you can put together rather quickly with beautiful dies from Cheery Lynn Designs.

I had a beautiful piece of purple marbled momi paper in my stash and I didn’t want to cover too much of it, so I went with a simple sentiment die and added the dragonfly to the bottom.
For the sentiment, I applied a piece of Stick It Adhesive to the back of a piece of white cardstock and then cut it out.  I peeled the backing off and adhered it to a piece of the momi paper.  Then I layered it on the lavender and dark purple cardstock and added a piece of torn mulberry paper to the bottom.
For the dragonfly, I applied a piece of Stick It Adhesive to a piece of white cardstock and then cut with the dragonfly die so the adhesive would be on the top.  I cut the dragonfly again in grey and cut the wings off.  I adhered the dragonfly body to the center and then I added some white glitter to the wings.
I built the center panel layers as you see and then I added a piece of Regal Purple Delicate Stitched Satin from Really Reasonable Ribbon behind the sentiment before I added it to the card front.  I then created a double-layer bow on my Bow-it-All V3.0 with the same ribbon for the top of the card.  Then adhere the dragonfly to the bottom and you are done.
