Love & Sympathy card

Here's a real quick sympathy card. I used the Love & Sympathy stamp set. I made a masking template using a transparency sheet (so I could see where I was placing the mask on the card) and the decorative framelit. I sponged using crumb cake ink on the inside of the cut transparency to create the shaded design. I stamped the flower before removing the mask and then added the text at the bottom. I used the scoring pal to add a little dimension to the sides of the card. I thought it needed a little something along the outsides.

Honeymoon Paper bag Mini Album

Here is a mini paper bag scrapbook album I made for a bridal shower. I didn't embellish, but gave plenty of space for pictures and journaling of their special honeymoon trip. I hope the bride and groom can have some fun putting pictures in this album.
There is a left side pocket and a bottom of the page pocket.
The flap with the words, "We saw . . . " lifts up to reveal more space for pictures. There is a side pocket to this page too.
I made this envelope out of card stock, which is held shut by velcro. Ticket stubs or receipts could be placed in this envelope to keep and look at years from now.
Here's the back inside cover.

Father's Day card

Here's a Father's Day card idea. I used vanilla cardstock for the base. I actually had to look up how to tie a tie to wrap the ribbon. The vanilla piece behind the tie is corrugated using the crimping tool. Using a black marker, I drew lines on the card base to represent a sleeve cuff. Added a little color in the layering. Pretty simple, but something different. Hope you like it.
