So many thank you cards!

Here are some more ...  I'm loving this paper pack that I bought a few weeks ago at Michael's.  There's probably six cards so far that I made with the papers in the pack.

This one is my very first attempt at an organza flower with melted petals.  I added some sparkly greenery behind it as well as a flourish made with my Expression 2 ... I used an old cardboard box, cut the shape and then used embossing powder on it.  The sentiment was made in Photoshop to fit the Labels Ten die.

This 6x6 gatefold card is tied with ribbon to match the paper.  The sentiment was created in Photoshop and cut on the Fleur de Lis die.

Here's my second attempt at an organza flower.  I added some glittery red leaves behind it.  The sentiment was made in Photoshop and cut with my Labels Ten die.  I then set it atop a rectangle that was edged and then run through my Big Kick with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder. For an added touch of bling, I placed a swirl of pearls just above the sentiment.

Both of the organza flowers have a center made by covering a brad in hot glue and then dipping it into glitter.

And finally ... a change from the same paper pack.  This is going to a gal who loves to post photos of high heels on her FB page.  I cut the shoe using my E2, added white embossing powder to the cutouts and colored the heel with Black Soot Distress Ink.  The top part of the shoe has blue embossing powder.  I added some jewels to the shoe as well as to the inside.  The shoe is mounted on white cardstock upon which I included a thank you sentiment and topped it off with embossing on the bottom using Cuttlebug folder Swiss Dots.  It's mounted on a black card base.  Hope she likes it!


  1. Way to go ... These admins are gonna love their cards - rightfully so!

  2. Hi Dodie,
    I really appreciate your comment on my blog. Thanks so much.
    And, wow, the card with the organza flower! I love it. Lucky you that you can buy at Michaels! There is nothing like this here!
    Have a nice and sunny week!

  5. P.S. I thought I should answer you here, since you stopped by to ask about an embossing folder (but your account is no reply on blogger so I couldn't email, sorry). The embossing folder is a Provo Craft Cuttlebug folder called 'Seeing Spots.' I got mine here: I've 'debossed' it on the card. Hope that helps! :o) [I added this comment separately so you could erase it after you get the embossing folder info, if ya like. :o)


I love hearing your comments! Thanks for visiting!
