Quote for the Day

"Learn the art of patience. Apply discipline to your thoughts when they become anxious over the outcome of a goal. Impatience breads anxiety, fear, discouragement and failure. Patience creates confidence, decisiveness, and a rational outlook, which eventually leads to success."

More Card Creations

I created a couple cards recently. This flag card was for a neighbor for Memorial Day. He served in the Marines and is a very proud American. He is a great neighbor!
This card measures 8.5 inches by 7 inches. I stamped a couple stars inside, with no sentiments. Unfortunately, I didn't get the stripe size just right. There are only 11 stripes, not the usual 13. Hope my friend didn't notice those tiny details!!
It was a big hit!

This "coffee card" was for a swap on SplitCoast Stampers. The only requirement were that the front had to have coffee on it somehow. No tea bags or tea pots allowed!! :-) This was a swap for hard core coffee lovers!!

Finally, this was a card for a different swap on SplitCoast. It was an all occasion swap, I decided to do a birthday or celebration card. Here I added 2 pictures of the same card because the embossed cupcake was difficult to see. The first card (hopefully) shows the cupcake with not so good colors. I used a previous card for inspiration.

And, this second card shows the colors much better. It looked better IRL! Hope this makes sense and you can see the details. I love embossing with folders and I used 2 different ones here. The background has circles, I thought it looked like wrapping paper.

Thanks for looking.
Have a great day.
