Card Sets

As a change of pace during the last few months, I have been making sets of note cards for some special friends and as thank you and hostess gifts. So far they have been well received. Here are a few. I posted the teacup cards a few posts ago. This first set uses a Martha Stewart punch, die cut lace flowers colored with alcolhol inks, ribbon and stitching.
These small flowers were cut out with my cricut and a Flower font (who knew!), a Marthat Stewart punch, ribbon, and lots of Metallic gold spray paint.

These flowers were cut on my cricut and embossed with polkadots then hit with ink to highlight them. The punch is also a Martha Stewart. I used Alcholol Inks to "dye the ribbons. The flower centers are brads.

A lovely friend from EGA gave me a bag of lace so I made her these cards using it, dimensional paint, a punch border, embossed and inked paper, ribbon, and a dragonfly I designed and cut on my cricut.

Butterflies cut and embossed using a Cuttlebug 2-step folder and my Sizzix die cut, ribbon, flowers cut with my Cricut, dimensional paint, machine stitching.

More with the dragonfly using elements used before.

My oriental peony set. The large flower was cut with my Cricut, the paper ribbn a punch from Martha Stewart. those butterflies again (love them!) and my favorite, gold spray paing. Most of the papers were from a book by K and Company.
