Birthday Cards

Monday, July 12, 2010


I'm still doing things with the Cindy Loo cartridge. I read on someones post that before she buys anymore cartridges that she makes at least 10 things from the what she already has. I am trying to follow that rule before I buy anything more.
Using the same color scheme with the polka dot paper, I created this Thanks card. The work Thanks was cut from page 71, font feature. cut @ 1.5" and then ran it through the swiss dots folder. The flower was on page 56 and cut @ 3.5". Added a ribbon on the bottom and then stickled the flowers

These three deer (1 is mirrored image)were also from the Cindy Loo cartridge on page 61. Used the shadow feature and cut out of the three colors because I couldn't decide how I wanted them to look on a card.

Both of these cards were made from the Cindy Loo collection. Using the same brown and golden yellow card stock for both cards. The size of the cut was made at 4.25" and with the shadow, it is slightly larger. I used the gypsy to cut the designs. The card above, the brown shadow layer was embossed with the swiss dots folder and then the yellow was stickled. Used a brown ink to stamp the Happy birthday and then blended the colors to match the background better.
The tree was stickled and used a brown pen to draw the trunk lines. I did cut another bird out of blue card stock and used a foam to add the dimension and blue ink to shadow the edges. Since I haven't decided what purpose that I was going to use this card for, I left it blank.
