Throwback Thursday

I made these cards quite a while ago, but for some reason never posted them here.

They are really sort of gift cards, and a unique element is the hangar on top, which allows the recipient to display it on a knob – like I have here in my kitchen.

The pink one is just a single sheet of paper decorated on both sides, the purple is an actual card, and even has a thin magnetic closure, which was required because of the heaviness of the back (see below).

It’s the chocolate bars, frankly, but maybe also because these are sorta “stuffed” with tags and mini-booklets!

Personally I think they are adorable, but then, I’ll admit, I’m kind of biased!

Thanks for stopping by!

Shabby Chic cards

Just a couple of designs, mixing it up, and trying for the Shabby chic look.

I used several doily type die cuts, gossamer ribbon, and Vellum flowers on one of them, the other has a standard paper flowers in the center and vellum for the others, all handmade, using the Heartfelt Creations dies, of course!

I just love this lacy die (white piece)

I even used vellum for the butterflies!

Paper is some Tim Holz I found at Tuesday Morning, it’s about 5”x 8” and has a fabric feel to it – very interesting and fun to work with.

Just Thinking of You

I made some cards for friends that we’ve been separated from during the pandemic & social distancing. Sometimes we can see our friends for lunch (outside seating!), sometimes not! So many people are going through a lot these days, so I’ve tried to give cards and a small treat to my friends, at least once a month. These are the ones I’ve made for them this week. (Plus some cupcakes!)

All of these use the Heartfelt Creations Regal Frames & Accents die, and the background paper is from my stash. The first one here has some yellow roses.

My second one is pink, with Double Petunias (I just love petunias!)

And the last one here is the Wild Aster. Asters are such a joy to make!

And now to make some cupcakes without eating them!

Sweet Peony Tag & Folio

Playing with the Heartfelt Creations Sweet Peony paper, I’ve made several cards, and one little booklet. This is just beautiful paper, and I love making the peonies, they are a little bit easier than the rose. I’ve used a Graphic 45 large square tag just below.

The little card actually has what I like to call Azaleas for the flowers.

Below is Tag Folio – meaning that I took three long tags, folded up the bottoms to make pockets, and then created a little booklet or folio out of the,. The little folio has a peony, a rose, and several small blossoms that I made. I just love creating paper flowers! And the HFC die cuts make it so easy! I used lots of ribbon and some charms to doll it up. Isn’t it adorable? Slip a treat into one of the pockets, and it a sweet gift, as well.
