Sometimes it’s fun to take colors that typically belong to a holiday and try make another project from those colors. This card has “Halloween” colors, but instead of Halloween, I made a Hello card for summer.
I used a Fiskars border punch, layered craft flowers with a black glimmer brad, some ribbon I got from Michael’s dollar bin and letter that I cut from my Cricut Plantin’ Schoolbook cartridge, cut at 1.5″. Stickers or rub-ons will work too.
Hope you enjoy this card :).
Sometimes it’s fun to take a simple shape & give it a little twist! This card is an easy one, and elegant for a ladies birthday. You can also change up the colors, lace & flowers for another trim & embellishment & turn it into a guy’s card! Use what you already have & design your card. I would love to see your projects!

I started with 4 square pieces of paper, 1 -1/2″ each, and then used a corner rounder on two sides of each square. I also used lace, layered flowers with a gold glimmer brad, a birthday wishes stamp (or gold birthday stickers are great too!), black ink & iridescent gold embossing powder.

Next Sunday is Father’s Day, so here’s a fun card you can make in a hurry! The secret is Hot Off the Press Outdoors Dazzles Stickers. I also used a button, a southwest corner punch and some generic brown twine that you can find in a hardware or craft store. I think the twine is a great way to embellish a man’s card without getting too floofy 🙂
I hope you take that time to make your dad, father-in-law, husband or stand-in father a great card for Father’s Day!
I was looking at a piece of artwork one time, and I got the idea for this card. You would probably scratch your head if you saw the artwork and then wondered how I got this idea lol, but I take inspiration wherever it strikes me :).
I took 3 different-sized paper flowers and cut the petals off, just snipping in between the petals with a v-shape, so they had that nice rain-drop shape. Then I layered them in a half circle shape. After I placed them the way I wanted, I glued them in place and stamped the word smile at the top. Simple, fun & bright!
