This is a fall birthday card using fall colored paper from  Recollections.  An acorn stamp and a maple leaf stamp were used for the background stamping.  I used Craftsmart Chocolate brown ink for the acorn and Tim Holtze Antique linen distress ink for the leaf.  For the band I used versamark ink and clear embossing powder with the acorn stamp.  I used the same for the Happy Birthday stamp on the top piece.  The Happy Birthday stamp is a retired Stampin' Up stamp.  

Anniversary card

     Here is an anniversary card ordered from a Facebook friend for her husband.  It was done in their wedding colors which I like to do as much as possible.  qh

Gift card holder

     This is a gift card holder I made for a friend.  It is a 5" square.  The layers are as follows:: 
White squares are 43/4", 41/4" and 33/4".  
The orange squares are 5", 41/2" and 4". 
For the front piece, I stamped the image and sentiment on tissue paper, scrunched the tissue paper and then glued it to the smallest white piece.  I then added a green monarch butterfly.  I want to thank Brandy Cox for sharing this tissue paper technique.  The other two white squares are embossed with the Cuttlebug swirl embossing folder.   The large square base is 5" x 12" and scored at 5" and 10".  There are 2 white 43/4" pieces inside.  Each stamped with a coordinating stamp.  The pocket for the gift card is adhered to the inside with 1/8" wide score tape.  Have fun making one.  This size fits a Superstore gift card with the sleeve attached to it.  

    This is a birthday card I made for my son.  It is a waterfall card with coach related stickers.  He has been assisting coaching on the senior football team he played with prior to his graduation.
