Bright and Colorful Thank You Card

Hi friends.  Today I’m sharing a bold and colorful Thank You card featuring some pretty dies from Cheery Lynn Designs and colorful ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
 The wild and colorful Distress Ink background paper I created is a perfect backdrop for a bold white frame die.  It really shows off the detail of the die.  I also used some of the background paper I created for the Thank You sentiment which was backed with a turquoise layer for a shadow effect.

I also carried the paper through for some of the layers of the pretty flower to pull everything together.

The flower was created with the Daisy Strip for the petals and then I created the center using the center die from the Black Eyed Susan strip.  The leaves came from the Floral Bouquet kit.  Why not mix and match flower pieces to create even more options!

Cheery Lynn Dies used:

My card was topped off with a pretty bi-color bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using Hot Pink and Turquoise Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  The center of the bow was adorned with a Heart Shaped Pearl Embellishment and the four corners are embellished with 12mm White Half Back Pearls.  The pretty ribbon running across the middle of the card is Tutti Frutti Chevron Stripe Grosgrain Ribbon layered on Turquoise Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon.

Maculine Birthday

Hi Cheery Lynn Fans.  Bonnie from Make Time to Craft here with you today sharing a masculine birthday card I created with some great dies from Cheery Lynn Designs.
The truth of the matter is, I struggle when making masculine cards.  I’m more of a pink and purple with lots of flowers girl, but that just doesn’t work with cards for men.  Clean lines seem to be the way to go.

For this card I pulled out my Electric Guitar die  and Nesting Doll Tags 1 which are both ON SALE NOW, so if you like them, head on over and grab them for your stash.

I cut the guitar in a shimmery metallic and then added the accents in the different colors.  The tag was embelllished with a bit of brown burlap string.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Happy crafting!
