Quick All-Purpose Card

Here’s a quick card I made while I was playing with some feather die cuts (from Spellbinders):

I haven’t added a greeting because I may use it for a fall birthday (this is a good masculine card) … or it may be for a Thanksgiving hello. The card base is 4 7/8 x about 7″, then folded in half. The bottom embossed design is from a Darice embossing folder. The leaves were cut from random scraps, then the tips were embossed in copper powder. This was so fast and easy!

Pretty Prima Papers

Here’s a short, but sweet, post.

Yes, it’s taken me more than two weeks to sift through all my notes from the Craft & Hobby Association Mega Show! But now I’m ready to share some of the goodies I’ve found.

Like these nifty papers from Prima Marketing (I remember when they mostly sold flowers! They’ve come a long way.)

The tag was made during a fast make-and-take at the Prima booth. The papers are from the lovely Cartographer collection. The ribbon is spritzed with Prima’s Color Bloom spray.

Ahhh…. Summertime!

I can’t believe summer is halfway over and I have not posted these cards yet!

Enjoy:

(I cut the car out using a Spellbinders’ Nestabilities die — the only way I’d get that perfect circle! Sentiment by Hero Arts.)

I am off to CHA — the big craft show in Las Vegas. I’ll be reporting on the show for Crafts ‘n things magazine’s blog beginning in August. Thanks for stopping by!
