Acetate Card

I was so excited at how well this card turned out I just had to share. It took me a few tries to figure out what I was doing and how to attach the acetate without glue showing on the reverse side. I chose brads to attach everything instead of glue. It looks neater and worked out pretty well. I'm just not sure I like the three brads on the side. I plan to make a few more and see if I can improve it a bit. If you have any ideas on how to attach the acetate to the card please feel free to share. I tried eyelets too and those look worse. Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Life is Sweet

Today is the perfect crafting day for me. It's rainy and windy and cold. I do my best work when it's dreary outside. This card was inspired by the b/g paper from DCWV. I used one of my most favorite sets by Hampton Art called cupcakes. I also used some quilling paper to make the little curl. It works great! I'm not sure how it will hold up in the mail, so maybe a padded mailer is in order. I hope you are having a great day where ever you are! Thanks for looking.

Tookey Day!

I'm all out of order this year with my card making. I know we haven't had Halloween yet and I've made so many Christmas cards already, so Thanks Giving was the next logical choice. LOL! Actually this is the only one I've done so far. It's not a big card giving holiday, but I wanted to use some of my flowers and this stamp seemed perfect for it.

Hope you're all have a great day!
