Mother’s day card

Hey!

Today I show you two very similar cards i made for Mother’s day. No, it’s not too late – Mother’s Day in Poland falls on the 26th of May so there is still couple of days to spare.

The cards are very simple. I used embossing resist technique and Distress Inks. The sentiment says “for Mum” in Polish.

Communion card for a girl

Hey!

This is a card I made on request. I took pictures and gave the card to the person who ordered it, not realizing that the pictures are not the best, with long shadows and side light… so my apologies for the quality.

Anyway, this is a very simple card. The cross was cut out by hand using a craft knife. I used two different shades of pink ribbon for background behind the cross. The sentiment I written by hand too, using embossing pen and silver embossing powder. I added very delicate glitter on the edges of the cardstock.

Unusual wedding card

Hey! Today I show you the card I made for my friend’s wedding.

I knew my friend wouldn’t like a traditional card so I tried to do something a little bit different. I used a lot of  patterns but  not too many hearts and personalized the card with a date stamp.

With sympathy

Hey!

Another sympathy card today.

It’s an one layer card (well, two if you count the card base), made using flower stamps from various sets stamped in shades of purple ink. I used masking paper to cover the sentiment and frame and then stamped around it. I was inspired by this card from Jennifer McGuire.
