I hope all is well your way! We have rainy cold weather today. So, it was a good day to spend the afternoon making birthday cards for December. I'm entering over at Simon Says Challenge.(Christmas or winter/festive)
My first card will be going to my friend, Dorothy. All cards were made with SU poinsettia stamps/dies. The sentiments vary, which are from PTI and SU.
I just couldn't resist purchasing the lovely poinsettia stamp set and design papers from SU this year. For this card, I did add a scallop border that was die cut using a die from MFT. The sentiment is from PTI. Gems and twine added to finish the card.
This card will be going to my sis for her birthday. I went with a buffalo plaid theme for her birthday this year.
On this card, I gold embossed the poinsettia. The design paper is from MME. The sentiment is from PTI. Gems and ribbon to finish this second card.
This card will go to my friend, Peggi. I used to work with her at the hospital where I worked. She was the administrative assistant. She was so sweet and organized. I miss her and my good nurse friends, Nola, Mary, and Michelle. But, once this crazy covid virus is over with I'm sure we will get together and meet for dinner.
I'm sure they could all pass for Christmas cards, but they are needed for birthday cards. For this last card, I used the dies that embossed the poinsettia and leaves. I did case the design from the SU Christmas catalog. The background was stamped with the pine bough stamp in DO rustic wilderness. The sentiment is from SU. Love the very pretty beaded pearls from SU, also. Pearls and gold thread bow to finish the card. Which one is your favorite? I guess I am leaning towards the last card because I love all the pretty layers!
Ok, friends, that's all for now. May you have a blessed week and a wonderful Thanksgiving for all of you in the USA!
