I need to make a Birthday Card for my oldest today. He is turing Sweet 16. We decided to make a Ice Cream Pie instead of a cake since it has been so warm. I think we will take him for supper tonight.

Been a few days since I posted. I figured I should soon or I will be hearing about it from friends.
I am heading for a nap today. So tired from not sleeping much last night. We had rumbling and bangs of thunder all night and I did not sleep well. Everyone else slept like a baby. I guess I am a worry wart.
This card is created with papers,accessories and stamps from Close To My Heart.

Colors are citrus leaf, black, ocean. I used the white daisy ink pad from CTMH also. Scallop punch from SU. All stamps from CTMH. The 3 black brads are paper punches from the leftover black papers. Glued them down then applied liquid glass to them. Rhinestone to the center of the flower for a little bling.

Happy Holiday Weekend. We are hanging out this weekend at the house. No real plans which is fine with me. Relaxation is wonderful! Then back to work and school. This week is the last week for school also for the kidos. They are excited.
This card is something I was working on and it just happened. I started with the pattern paper and worked around that. The cuttle bug added texture onto the green paper. Then the paper flowers are from Prima. Laugh is a stamp from Tuesdays.

First off you need a piece of cardstock paper that measures 10 x 4 1/4 scoring at the 3 and 7 1/4.
To make this gift holder stable enough to hold a gift card or money you will need to add 2 eyelets to the inside to hold the sides together.
Then you want to decorate the front. To make the front stay shut you will need some stretchy cord which I bought at Hobby Lobby. They have black and white. Take a piece of that about 7 inches. Enough to wrap around the card without it buckling the card. I did 2 eyelets again to make the cording secure on the card so it did not rip it out. I tied and knotted in the front and mounted the flower on top with pop dots.
This is what it looks like from the back with the cord.
Hope this gives you some great ideas for graduations, weddings and birthdays!

First spritz your stamp very lightly with water. (If you do tooo much the water will pool and make a muddy mess when you add color.) Then take your color choice of watercolor pencils. I took a bright pink and a purple watercolor pencils. Color just the outline of the stamp with the purple. I then went back and added pink to the center of the flower. Stamp this onto your cardstock.
Lightly spritz the stem of the flower and add green colored pencils to the edges to the stamp. Stamp this onto your cardstock.
I again spritzed the stamp lightly and added color to the flower center edge in blue, stamp down into flower. Stamp this into your center of the flower on your cardstock.
This is the finished card with the papers layered and BGTP and ribbon.
