Batty for You Halloween Card

This is such a stinkin' cute Halloween card and so easy to make!  This was one of the selections at my September Buffet Card Class and was a huge success.  Click on the Events tab at the top of my blog for my class schedule.

Batty for You

The card base is Flirty Flamingo with a layer of Basic Black cardstock and the Cute Halloween Designer Series Paper.  The greeting was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Flirty Flamingo cardstock and mounted on a piece of Black Glitter paper.  Easy-Peasy!

Heartfelt Wished Christmas

The Merry Christmas greeting from the Heartfelt Wishes stamp set takes center stage for this Christmas Card. This stamp set has awesome greetings for the Christmas/Holiday season, but also for Thanksgiving and even Valentine's Day.  I just love the font on this stamp set, it makes me happy!

Heartfelt Christmas

I used the Silver Specialty and Red Foil Papers for the snowflakes.  There's even a tiny strip of the Red Foil at the bottom of the greeting.  The Gingerbread & Peppermint Designer Series Paper was the perfect blend of red and green for this card.  

After I made my card in portrait layout, I wondered what it would look line in a landscape layout.  So of course, I had to try it out.  I'm having a hard time deciding which layout I like best.

Please leave a comment on which layout you like best - portrait or landscape.

"Scrap" Birthday Card

This is a great way to use all those scarps of cardstock - just line them up like toy soldiers.  I wanted to create a masculine birthday card so I pulled out scrap cardstock pieces, cut them to various widths and attached to a piece of Basic White cardstock covered with a piece of adhesive sheet.  Easy-Peasy!

Masculine Inspired Thoughts

Remember that color plays an important roll when creating a masculine card.  Yes, this card has two thin strips of Petal Pink cardstock, but the overall colors, Bumblebee, Just Jade, Calypso Coral and Gray Granite have a masculine feel when paired together.
