Yes, *gasp* there was a lapse in posts but in my defense, it was due to
technical difficulties with my internet connection. I am currently
hiding out from the flu and dreary cold winter in Mexico and thus the
internet and phones are not always reliable! So here are a few more
cards I wanted to share--
These are still part of the series of the gift set I am making for my sister who shall be visiting me in Mexico in a few short days! I am out here with my 2 year old son and husband and while I adore them, a 2 year old is not necessarily much for conversation and a male cannot partake in discussions about Grey's Anatomy, hehe. But I digress, this one I intended for a more mature woman. I started off with the gingham cardstock from Michaels and layered it with a Spellbinders Lattice Rectangles Die. I sponged it using Tim Holtz's distress ink in Salty Ocean and then stamped with Memento Love Letter the flowers, which are from one of the My Mind's Eye stamp collections. The side flourishes are from an older stamp set, I cannot remember the manufacturer. I finished it off with red vintage seam binding and mini floral pearl accents at the flower center and a blue rhinestone at the corner. I love the contrast of striking blue and red. This card could also easily be altered to accommodate a card for Independence Day.
Hope you enjoy these cards as much as I enjoyed sharing!
Have a fabulous weekend!
