Card Night

Last night I got together with 4 very talented ladies for some card making fun!  We each designed our own card, then brought the makings for everyone else. So we all walked away with 5 beautiful cards AND we learned a few techniques in the making! The theme for the evening was "Miscellaneous". Meaning you could make whatever type of card you'd like. Here are their creations:

April made a congrats card.  I really liked her bright and cheery colors.

She knows exactly how life is.  Don't we seem to accomplish MANY great things all at once? Just circle the appropriate occasion inside! And I love the tiny note box in the middle!

These buttons were my favorite.  I need to do more with buttons!

Rebecca made this "get well soon" card.   If I received this card, it would surely put a smile on my face.

The paint chips were so clever!

Here's the inside of the card. The velum added the perfect touch by not taking away from the "paint" theme.

So cute!

Lisa made this "thinking of you" card.  We all loved how it opens in the center and I liked the fun edges on each paper. 

Her whole card was warm and soft and just darling!

Both Lisa and Katrina's cards had some rubber stamping in them which I just love. Katrina did a "birthday" card and brought a new technique for us to learn along with her. You can check out more of her amazing paper crafting here.

I should have made Katrina stay another 30 seconds and tie my bow for me.  I stink at bows on cards! Nonetheless, it gave the finishing touch and was a beautiful card to create!

Oh, I almost forgot!  I did one too! ha ha! So here's my birthday card.  I decided it would be good for a grandmother aged person since it talks about "age" and feels a little sophisticated. The cut was Storybook "cockatoo" for the tree with bird.

I designed the circle with the saying, but I swiped the words from a quote book.

The frame is a belt buckle from fabulous finds.
