Different Card, Different Day 2/18/18 February 18 2018, 0 Comments

I wish you love. This very colorful card is meant to send someone special to me, a message of love. My aunt Ann, who at 95 is not feeling the greatest and needed something bright in her world. So I made this card for her.

The blue paper ribbon/cord was wrapped around the matching blue paper before sticking it to the card front.  A gold swirl is from one of my die cutting shapes (made by using metallic paper) and partially sits under the popped up flower picture.

I matted the flower picture in matching blue and green papers to the outside border of this card. The actual drawing comes from the sample backing sheet of a child's coloring activity book. You know, the ones with the black velvet that you get at your local craft stores. I had this (as well as other images) that I set aside to use one day.  I added sparkly metallic pens to the drawing and made it have more depth with shading. A white pearl jewel sticks on to the center of the pink flower as added dimension.  And I'd like to point out the bumble bee flying around the top. Just in case you missed it.

If you want to find out how this card was made, using which supplies or how I possibly could design a card for you, please contact me.  Leave me a comment too and let me know what you think about today's card of my daily "Different Card, Different Day" blog series. 

Thanks for reading my blog. Enjoy your day.

With Sympathy. These cards are always the hardest to design whether they are personal or for someone else. This one happens to be personal and is going to a dear friend of mine.

If you ever do get a sympathy card from me, please know that I spend a lot of time putting one together. I try and add details that help make the card special.

The center of these flowers are star shaped brads and help hold the layers of petals together.

Enjoy the little things with a water-colored sunflower. What a terrific message. The flower was wishful thinking on my end, being in New England, in January. We typically have the white stuff on the ground and no flowers. 

The bright green border was another cheerful add to this card. The color just pops and is a positive vibe for the design. The silver Dazzles swirl in the background. 

The flower panel is raised off the card front with foam adhesive tape. It gives the card dimension.

This beautiful red festive card has a poinsettia with a golden center bordering around "Wishing you a warm and wonderful Holiday". Three black ribbons stick out from under the sentiment that is popped up with foam adhesive dots.  This gives the card more dimension.  The middle ribbon is tied in a knot to give it a different look.  

On the inside it reads in matching papers, "Hope your Christmas is filled with everything beautiful".

Four golden brads (like the three that made up the poinsettia center) are placed on the corners of the sentiment.

Being so close to the end of Autumn I felt the need to design a card exactly like this one. Utilizing beautiful orange, gold and red fall-ish colors. 

The black vinyl stickers are called "Dazzles". They are super fun and easy to work with. The little gold butterfly is popped up with a foam adhesive dot. Also, jute twine is tied in a bow on the white gift tag, just below three large diamond tip pointed gems.

"Some days you have to create your own sunshine". A beautiful yellow hand painted sunflower reminds you that the warmth and brightness of the sun is worth creating.

Since this card was created using a rubber stamp image and a metal frame die cut that I own, I can recreate these in any quantity needed.  Just click on either photo above to bring you directly to the sales page.

Thinking of you is always a great message to send to anyone.  Even better when it comes within a handmade card. Lots of coloring went into this card, using my Spectrum Noir alcohol ink markers.

I cut the butterfly wing out along the edge and stuck a foam pop dot under it to give it some dimension.

See the little white foam dot? That is all it takes to make something pop up off the front of your card.

Today's featured card for my daily blog series "Different Card, Different Day" is a pink and green sympathy card with a golden rose and matching butterflies.  There are several layers that were built up to make it thick and foam tape dots were used to pop up the message and one of the large butterfly wings, giving it dimension. Dazzles stickers from Paperwishes.com are placed inside and out.

The inside is also decorated to match the front and has one of my favorite quotes to stamp for sympathy cards.

Different Card, Different Day #9 May 09 2017, 0 Comments

Here's my first sympathy card to show during the "Different Card, Different Day" blog series.  These types of cards are always harder for me to make because they usually come with a personal reason for me to be making them in the first place. But I realize that if and when the time comes, I try my hardest to make it as beautiful and elegant as possible.  This featured card today is so lovely, in my opinion.  

I was fortunate enough to recently get these flower and stem/leaf die shapes in a recent Maker's Mart card making kit club I am a member of. They always send many usable supplies and are often complimentary with prior month's kits. 

If you want to find out more details on how this card was made, using which supplies or how I possibly could design a card for you, please contact me.  Leave me a comment too and let me know what you think about day #9's card.

Thanks for reading my blog. Enjoy your day.
