Handmade Cards

What is better than getting a card hand made just for you. It shows the person you send it to that you care enough to spend some extra time making something special for them.

This card was made from a standard stock card from Michaels. The diamond background paper is from the Die Cuts With a View (DCWV) school stack. I cut the cupcake in blackout and regular image at 4" from the Gypsy Wanderings cartridge. I added some stickles to the cupcake and hand wrote "Happy Birthday".


This card was made using stock card paper again from Michaels. The Pilgrim boy was cut from the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge at 4". I stamped his face using stamps from Peachy Keen. His muzzle loader was highlighted using Tim Holtz distress ink. He has been popped off the card using dimentional adhesive. The pumpkins are from a self adhesive border strip. The inside sentiment is cut using Simply Sweet and punctuated with Plantin Schoolbook.
