Hi, there!

Just popping in quick to share with you a couple cards that I made today.  Very CAS cards for me, but I wanted to send one of these for a friend's husband who had surgery.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts and the leaves are from MFT.  I used distress inks for the background.  Gold Nuvo crystal drops for the final touch.

On my next card, I did the inlay technique with the sentiment.  I'm thinking that I like this card better than the one above.  What do you think?  It was my first attempt at the inlay technique and I really like the dimension.  I didn't get it centered exactly.  Note to self...measure next  But, was a fun try.  And, here is my second card...

Well, that's all for now.  I hope you have a great day!  Take care!



  1. Beautiful cards, Maria! I love the inlay technique, so the second one is my favorite! Great idea to use the leaves at each end of the word!

  2. I think you did a FAB job. Perfection in CAs; I especially love the second card with inlay technique. I LOVE how that sentiment stands out!

  3. Both are great cards, Maria! So fun to use new techniques and play around with inks and dies!

  4. I love them both but I have a thing for the inlaid die technique... It's one of my favourites! I'm sure your friend will be very appreciative!

  5. Two beautiful cards Maria, love the distress inked background is gorgeous!

  6. My dear friend, both of your cards are beautiful! They will certainly deliver healing love. The first one is positively radiant as it glows with divine light. The inlay technique in the second one is indeed stunning. The dimension is lovely. Everything you create is gorgeous and sweet, Maria. You truly are a gift to the crafty community. :) Have a wonderful day, friend!

    Hugs and blessings,

  7. Both are great but I like the second one best. Never would have noticed it wasn't centered if you didn't point it out!
