Sunday Afternoon Cardmaking

 I used one of my favorite Stampin' Up stamp sets on this one.  The citrus images are so versatile and can be used on many types of cards.
 These large flowers have been in my stash for quite a while.  I typically do not use them on my cards if the card is to be mailed because the flower gets crushed by the post office machinery.
This card was inspired by one I saw on Pinterest.  The playing cards were cut in half.  I printed the sentiment using card making software.  The inside sentiment is "Hoping yous is a winner!" 

This will make a good card for a man's birthday.

Burgundy Birthday Card

The background was embossed with a Brocade Cuttlebug folder.

The center squares that are set on point are 1 3/4" in the burgundy cardstock and 1 1/2" for the inset piece.

The sentiment is from SU's Create A Cupcake set.

Sunday Afternoon Card Making

Today is the first time in months that I've sat down in my craft room to make some cards.  The area had sort of become a storeroom and took me a while to clear it out enough to get to my work table.  Then I had to refresh my memory on how to use MTC software and Cameo!

Using the Stamp-A-ma-jig I was able to position the sayings on the hearts cut with my Cameo.

There are only four of this design so I just hand cut the opening of the jar.  It's pop dotted off the base for dimension.
 This is a good way to use up some of the striped papers you have that you really don't like!

The butterfly is SU's Elegant Butterfly punch.

The pink pearls were purchased years ago at a scrapbook expo in Texas.

I've had the hello stamp for a long time and do not know the maker.
On on of my shopping trips with Okieladybug, I bought a package of precut borders at Tuesday Morning.  I cut the borders and had enough butterflies to complete four cards.
