Dandelion Embossed Card

I fell in love with this 3D embossing folder when I got my copy of the new Annual Catalogue.  I was already in love with the Dandelion Wishes stamp set and actually use a dandelion image for my theme!

So I had to make a card or cards using this folder.  This is my first one of many that I will share with you over time.

I decided to use the vellum over the Bumblebee patterned DSP to give some texture under the vellum.  The image from the embossing folder is so pretty and really looks great on its own....
I also used some texture in the label with the Bumblebee cardstock and the Tasteful Texture Embossing Folder!

Jar of Flowers Anniversary Card

On Tuesday, our middle son and his wife celebrated their 7th Wedding Anniversary.

I had to make their card quite a while ago as they live in Australia and the mail has been very slow!
I am pleased to let you know that it arrived a few weeks before their anniversary.....phew!

I used the Jar of Flowers set for the focal point and then added other sets for the sentiments.
  Here is the card:

I have found that having the flowers coloured in different colour combinations and cut out has made a few of my cards a much faster process!

This is the inside of the card:

We had lots of space to send them both a little note to wish them a Happy Anniversary and sign the card.
