A Few Cards for the Girl Next Door

Good Morning Everyone! Thanks for stopping by...I hope you had a great weekend! When the girl next door came over and asked me to make her a few cards, I had no idea what I was going to do because she didn't know what she wanted. She only knew that one of the cards needed to be special and needed the sentiment to be in Portuguese. Here is what I came up with...I hope you like them Stef. The first one is the "special" wedding card that is a 5x5 easel card, using one of my favorite Martha Stewart punches, Vintage Floral edge punch, Petite Oval/Scallop from Spellbinders and Cuttlebug Swiss Dot embossing folders. Because of the embellishments, I needed to make a box for it. It didn't photograph very well, what you can't tell from the picture is the background paper is paper that I made using the silk paper technique and is gorgeous in real life and really adds texture. You also can't tell I heat embossed the edges of the card and the branch punch in the flower spray with gold glitter embossing powder---

She had seen the wedding cards I had sent to my son and daughter in law and thought it would be nice for a friend's wedding that she had missed. I promise you, this will be the last of the bride and groom hearts you'll see for awhile. A very simple card, using another of my favorite Martha Stewart edge punches, Lace Hearts and the embossing folders from the Cuttlebug Love Language, Emily's Bouquet and Quick Kutz Stripes Label---
She also needed a card for her daughter's teacher who is pregnant. The image is She's All That Brush Set from Stampin Up---
This last one, she picked from my stash so those not new to my blog may have already seen it---
That's it for today...Thanks for stopping by. If you have a question on the recipe or supplies that I have used in my posting today, please feel free to email me. Til next time...enjoy your day and have a wonderful week!

I love, love, love the wedding card. The burst of flowers couldn't be more beautiful. I'm with the other writer, everytime I see the bride & groom style card it looks different to me and I'm amazed how a couple details and a few different colors change everything and make it new. Love all of them.
