Have A Question On How I Did Something? PLEASE READ!

I love to share what knowledge I have. I'm finding it more and more difficult to respond to your questions because some of you are not leaving a way for me to contact you. I am not ignoring those of you who have questions, but the majority of the time no contact information is given so I am unable to respond to your inquiries. If you are serious about me answering the questions you ask and do not have a Blogger account with an email address linked to it, please leave your email address or email me with your question at and I will get back with you. If you email me, be sure to put "blog question" in the subject line so I won't think it's SPAM and delete it.

Thank You With All Of Our Heart

It's Me Again! My husband's sister and husband took us to dinner on Monday so I thought I would hit 2 mice with one stone by making them a Thank You card and by showing how I finish the inside of my cards. Last week my good Blogger friend Theresa asked me how I finished the inside of my cards. Since I don't finish them until I'm ready to send it out and this one is ready to go I thought I would post it. It's got 4 of my favorites...1) It's PINK, 2) My favorite embossing folder-Love Language, 3) My favorite House Mouse stamp and 4) My favorite edge punch, Martha Stewart Valentine Lace which by the way, I have cussed since the day I got it. I had always had difficulty punching even thin card stock until I was reading Sue Nelson's of Heartprints message board the other day--- her buddy Kay had responded to a question that another reader had posted about problems with some of the Martha Stewart punches, she suggested that you start out on a hard surface and then push down on the handle with one hand, while pushing down on the body of the punch with the other. I tried it and it worked! Not only on thin card stock but even Bazzill! is the recipe for the front of the card---The House Mouse was colored with Prisma pencils and OMS then layered on a heart/scallop Nestibility. The background layer was embossed with Cuttlebug Love Language embossing folder. Ribbon was added to the band that was cut with the Martha Stewart Valentine Lace edge punch and little bit of glitter was added to the heart that the mouse is holding. Words are computer generated.
For the inside---Of course the words are computer generated, then cut the top and bottom with the Martha Stewart Valentine Lace edge punch, and added 2 hearts cut with the small and medium Marvy heart punch.
For the back---words are computer generated then cut with a circle/scallop Nestibility and 2 hearts that were cut from the Martha Stewart Valentine Lace edge punch were glittered and added to the open space in the circle.
Thanks for stopping by, I'd love to hear what you think so please leave me a comment!

Kelly this is absolutely beautiful inside and out. Love the way you have done the border punch on the front. We have just started to get Martha Stewart over here but it is so expensive, $45 for a border punch, I really like them but not that much

Kelly! This is the most adorable thank you card ever! Love how you colored your cute little House Mouse and all the pretty embellishing. Been wanting that MS edge punch forever! Now that it is "retired" it sells on ebay for crazy prices...hold on to that one!
