hey guys! I just wanted to share a card I made recently for my friend's 18th birthday :)Here's what it looked like when I was finished:
I used Crate Paper's Restoration collection 6x6 paper pad for all of the patterns on the card. The card base is a regular 4.25" by 5.5" A2 sized piece of kraft cardstock. There is also a very thin mat of creme colored cardstock that I cut to create an eighth of an inch border around the patterned paper. I stamped the sentiment (a dollar stamp from Michaels) with Tim Holtz distress embossing ink, and then I embossed it with white embossing powder. Then I added some American Crafts chipboard Thickers for the numbers. Lastly I added three rhinestones/bling to the centers of the flowers on the main patterned paper. I really hope you guys like it! :)

These are some of the cards I made recently to try out new layouts/ techniques that I had not tried before! The winter wishes card is made using 1 x 1 inch squares of patterned paper, that I accented with bling and glitter-glue. The sentiment is made using American Crafts letter stickers in white.
Next, the thanks card is made using a card base of kraft cardstock that measures 4.25 x 4.25. The large red heart is cut from the "George and Basic Shapes" cricut cartridge at I believe 2 inches. It is embossed with the "Victoria" cuttlebug embossing folder. I added a stamped heart from an American Crafts "Thanks" stampset and a smaller heart cut out of white cardstock, along with some American Crafts white letter stickers for the sentiment.The next card is made by stamping a polka-dot background stamp by Inkadinkadoo on half of the card base (standard sized) diagonally. I did this by covering one side with a scrap of paper while I stamped in brown ink. Then I added some diagonal strips of red, green, and brown cardstock and some white letter stickers from American Crafts. I added a little bit of red glitter-glue for the finishing touch!And last but not least, the "You Make Me Happy" is made from a standard sized card base of Kraft cardstock. I stamped the background using two different flower images and some brown ink. The sentiment is from the American Crafts stamp set entitled "thanks" and it is stamped on a piece of yellow cardstock which I then adhered to the base. I added a strip of light blue cardstock for some color and some white gel pen around the outside edge of the card :)
I hope you guys like all of the cards!
