Thank You Card

I made this card for my co-worker and his wife who had me over to their house for a party on Friday night. I used last year's retired In-Colour, Crushed Curry cardstock, which I LOVE, and retired DSP Razzleberry Lemonade. I created the butterfly using the Tim Holtz Fanciful flight die. I love the layered effect of this die, it is so amazing, I am excited about using it with some funky materials such as metal. I used the gold glitter from the Fine Galaxy glitter on the body, and the Elegant Thank you stamp with Rich Razzleberry Ink, and Rich Razzleberry and Whisper White cardstock. The butterfly looks really cool popped up on dimensionals. I'm so thrilled with how this card turned out, it was hard to send... but I put it in the mailbox this afternoon.

Wedding Stuff

Here are a card and money envelope I made for a wedding.
This envelope uses several current and retired products. I think it turned out beautifully! The belly band DSP was one of my favourites - I don't have the 2008 catalogue handy so I'm going from memory, but I believe it was the Parisian Breeze specialty. The gusseted envelope is another retired item from 2009/2010 from the Thoroughly Modern collection. I also use retired Kraft Taffeta ribbon, Gold Cord, and Baja Breeze button. I used the Vintage Labels stamp set from Sale-a-bration 2010. Current products I used on this envelope are Baja Breeze and Crumb Cake ink, Very Vanilla and Baja Breeze cardstock, 1-3/4" scallop circle punch,eyelet border punch, and crimper.

This card uses many of the same products including the Parisian Breeze specialty DSP, Baja Breeze and Crumb Cake ink, Very Vanilla and Baja Breeze cardstock, Kraft Taffeta ribbon, Gold Cord, eyelet border punch, and crimper. In addition, I used Crumb Cake cardstock embossed with the square lattice embossing folder and sprayed with Vanilla Shimmer Smootch Spritz which gives a beautiful, subtle, shimmer. I also used Victoria 5/8" crochet trim and accessories from the pretties kit which give a lovely vintage effect. Stamp sets used are Bella Toile and Curly Cute.
