More Birthday Flowers

This is my next-to-the-last card using acetate backgrounds. The background looks a lot more blue in the photo than it actually is, as is often the case with purples. This card uses two pre-made backgrounds - one for the die-cut and the other the acetate background. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink and is embossed in silver. The flower panel is matted with shimmery silver paper.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Christmas Card Part

Another card made with a "card part" I've had in my stash for probably ten years. The background was done on acetate. My first thought was, "what an ugly background!" But then I realized how appropriate it was for a Christmas card. I added a die-cut frame and a die-cut sentiment. I also added three layers of the frame (including the insides) to the back of this piece for more dimension. The card base is ivory.

Happy Birthday, Amelia!!

We were recently in Chicago (it was just before schools, etc. started closing, and we stayed put in their house while we were there. We were also extremely careful on our trip home!!) visiting our daughter and her family. Our granddaughter, Amelia, drew me a picture. Since her birthday was coming up (she is turning ten today) I used her picture to make her card. I scanned it and printed it smaller than the original. I colored it with Copic markers. I kind of wish I had finished it a little bit "fancier" but it is what it is. I simply matted it and added the sentiment on the inside. Happy Birthday, Amelia!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Stained Glass?

One more card using a "card part" that I received several years ago. This piece was also done on acetate. I used a die to cut the flower out of shiny silver cardstock. It looks a bit like stained glass. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink. I matted it with silver cardstock and mounted it on Dimensionals.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Anniversary With Card Parts

Here are two more cards using backgrounds that were given to me. These were also done on acetate. They are many, many years old! These both had some gold in them, so I used gold accents. For this first one, I used a die for the sentiment and made it four layers thick. The cardbase is ivory. I used shiny gold cardstock strips on the top and bottom edges of the acetate.
For this card, I used a Papertrey Ink stamp for the sentiment. I used gold embossing powder for it. I also added the same thin shiny gold strips on the top and bottom edges.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!
