On of the pluses of having my sister visit last week, was she brought me a bunch of embossed card stock. I picked out embossing folders that she had and I did not and had her emboss 1/4 sheets with the ones I chose. Today I played with some of them to make some birthday cards.
The star embossing folder - cute isn't it. Random stars all over the paper. These could be used for a birthday card of a graduation card.
I used up soem of my retired DSP on these cards. I like this embossing folder, Zig Zag. I asked her to use the Regal color collection for these and I plan to use them for masculine cards.
Another card using the Zig Zag embossing folder and some of the stars that I cut out on the previous cards.
This is a 50th anniversary card for a friend at church. The ribbon is not Stampin Up - I had it from some previous project. The ribbbon is not really woven. You put the stripes on one diagnoal and the the opposite diagonal. So the ribbons are just criss-crossed and not woven under and over.
I really like the way it turned out. 50 years is a long time and they deserve a special card.
