Embossed Flowers for a Friend

Can you believe we're STILL doing tax stuff? Of course, our taxes this year are a little more complicated, since we've lived in 2 different countries and sold a house!! I thought I'd try to post quickly while scanning some documents for the hubby! Doing something I want, while doing something he needs, good compromise, right?? :-)

So...I've really enjoyed the cuddled cardstock Cindy sent me last month, and here's one of the projects I made recently. I sent this card to my upline and very good friend Rachel in SoCal, and now that I know she's received it, I can post! :-)

For this card, I just took the full quarter sheet (trimmed a little for layering) and pulled out my Stampin' Pastels to color and highlight it. I used the Bravo Burgundy, Elegant Eggplant and Always Artichoke pastels for coloring. Then, I just finished off by adding some ribbon and a tag created with this year's Designer label punch box kit (I trimmed the very vanilla tag down so it would fit on the punched artichoke label.)

It was a really simple card, but I think it turned out looking rather elegant! I think I"m going to have to break down and have my mom get me a cuttlebug before she comes's just soo much fun! Especially after seeing all the cute die-cuts people are using for yesterday's Ways to Use it challenge over at SCS. :-)

  1. Ugh! Taxes... I started mine but haven't gotten around to finishing them yet :o(
    Love the card! I bought a cuttlebug but haven't gotten to play with it much yet (story of my life it seems...)


I love reading your comments, thanks for leaving me some love!
