Handmade Cards/Paper Crafting Thursday!

Kelli hosts Paper Crafting Thursday! You can go to her blog here to see some other paper crafts!! You will love her blog and what she makes so stop on by!

Today I'm sharing a couple of cards I made.

This one is a Valentine card

Pale pink cardstock for the notecard, celery green cardstock, floral paper, pink organza ribbon, specialty scissors, pop-up mounting squares, and a pretty premade heart embellishment from Michael's (made by Jolee)

I measured and cut the pieces
Trimmed the edges with the scissors for a little touch of fancy. Glued down printed paper piece.

Applied the heart to the green piece

Punched holes with a small hole punch to make a bow
Threaded ribbon through, tied bow

Applied mounting squares to back

Applied green piece w/heart to printed paper
All Done!!

Here's one I made for a friend

The pretty embellishment is from JoAnn
Have a joy-filled day, and thank you for stopping by!!

  9. What gorgeous cards! I adore the pinks in your Valentine card. So pretty. But I adore the one with the feather! I read somewhere once that if you ever find a white feather it means you were visited by an angel! I am sure your friend loved the card!
