Getting back to card making...

Hello Everyone!

Happy Tuesday to you.  This weekend, along with continuing to work on mini albums, I took some time to make a couple of cards.

My elder daughter asked me to make a thank you card for a professor.  She suggested a box card, and this is what I came up with.  She knew that the professor likes daisies, so I altered my fav "SVG Cuts" Autumn Box Cards file by changing out the pumpkins for daisies.  
 I love adding dimension to the daisy centers by forming them with my ball stylus and adhering them to the petals with foam tape to keep them popped out. 

 I added a bit of detail to the white petals and the outside edges of the centers with a yellow brush marker.  I also added a bit of Distress Ink to the embossed card stock trim. 
I needed a sympathy card for some special friends, and cased a card I saw on Pinterest.  The original was made by Cindy Gilfillan and posted in the SplitCoast Stampers gallery.  She used paint chips, rather than designer papers for a really elegant look.


I made this card a month or so ago, for a friend's birthday.  Looks a bit familiar, doesn't it? 

Hope you have a terrific rest of the week!



  1. I love your "daisy" box cards using the SVGcuts Autumn Box Card. My brain is working overtime with new ideas thanks to you.
