Mother's Day Card & Gift Box

I'm a little slow at posting, but this is what I made for my mil for Mother's Day.  The first is her card, and below that is the 2-4-7-10 box that I made for her.  We used the box for a pair of earrings we got for her.  It was such a nice way to wrap up something so tiny.  These boxes are made out of a single sheet of 8 1/2" x 11" cardstock, and are extremely easy to make.

I used pearl embossing powder and Versamark ink for the butterfly, and for the sentiment I used a mauve pigment ink with the pearl eb powder.  The flowers were made with the Martha Stewart hydrangea punch.


Bridal Shower Invitation

My niece is in her friend's wedding and is hosting a bridal shower for her so she asked me to make the invitations.  The bride chose a tangerine orange for her main colour, so this is the invitation I came up with.

Bridal Shower Thank You Card

These are the thank you cards for the bridal shower.

Wedding Favours

My niece's friend is getting married so she bought 50 boxes of chocolates to give as favours, but she didn't know how to dress them up and put a thankyou tag on them.  That became my job, and this is the final result.  The tag sentiment is, "Sweets to end the sweetest day.  Enjoy!"  It also has their names and wedding date on it.

Sympathy Cards

I needed to make a sympathy card for a friend who lost his mother.  I made a card and then decided it was much too froo-froo for he and his wife.  They are a couple who loves the country and being outdoors, and recently bought their first home on a beautiful piece of property with woods and a stream.  I decided to make another card that suited them a little more.  Can you tell which card I decided to send to them?
I masked and sponged the oval and moon, then stamped
the tree using my Lovely As a Tree stamp by SU.

I stamped the roses (Judi-kins) and coloured them with pencil crayons and gamsol, then sponged ink on the edges.  I layered plain cs with a sheet of HOTP printed vellum.

Spring Birthday Card

I was asked by a friend to make a birthday card for her to send to her sil, something pretty with bling.  I thought it would be nice to use some bright spring colours.  This pp from Hot Off The Press was perfect for that.  The rest is from my dollar store.  Sentiment is computer generated.  TFL!
