Love is in the Air

I made this anniversary card for a friend to give to his wife for their first anniversary. I like the shimmer and softness of the card.

The CS is a gold and chocolate shimmery Bazzil paper. The bird image is from "Our Daily Bread" designs and is called "Sing Unto the Lord". The "Love You" image is from StampinUp. The DP is from last year and I don't recall the company name. Ribbon is a brown sheer ribbon from a local craft store, the brad is a beautiful pink and bronze butterfly.

The inside sentiment says "To love and be loved is to feel the sun from both sides". Not to mushy but very sweet.

Tea Bag or Candy Holder

I have been busy playing with this teabag holder template I found on Splitcoast. Fun Fun!

While it is a great tea bag holder, I find I prefer to fill them with Ghirardelli chocolates. I just know you are saying "Well of course". I used a variety of papers, this is a great way to use your scrap papers, of which I have an abundance. This is the case with all of the items shown here except for the layered large flower, it is SU's Tea Party designer paper and I just had to use it on at least on of the holders.

Birthday Card with Coordinating Box and Gift Card Holder

Happy Birthday Jennifer!!!!

She won't see this post however, this is her birthday assemble, it is a card, matching box (Dawn on YouTube again), and gift card holder.

The card stock is SU's Lovely Lilac, the designer paper is from Creative Imaginations and is double sided. No name on the paper, unless it is "Renae's House". There was a lot of paper cutting involved in this project. The flowers are embellished with glitter pens and gems for the bling I love so dearly.
Until later...

Masculine Birthday Card and Coordinating Gift Card Holder

Hello again! It has been a while and I'm sorry about that, however, the yard has been a life sucking force for the last several weeks. You know, raking, digging, pulling, planting, hoeing, once done, the cycle starts again. Our yard is beautiful, but man it is a lot of work. Also, we have had several happenings in the family, husband returning from overseas and several birthdays.
So, I have been creating, just not posting much.
The photo I'm sharing now was inspired by a card that was created by pair-a-dox creations. Kudos ladies, this is a great man card. The smaller card is actually a coordinating gift card holder. I found the template for the gift card holder from Dawn on YouTube. The colors for both projects are SU's River Rock and Baja Breeze. The stamp set us SU's Nature Silhouettes. On the card I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder for the background.
For the gift card holder..to create do the following:
cut card stock 4 1/4 X 11
Score at 3, 5 1/2, and 8
Fold score lines accordion style
Tape the two center folds together using tacky tape
Use the SU Word Window punch to create a straight line within the center fold.
Use a 1/2 inch circle punch to create an indentation that allows easy grasp of the gift card.
You can add a belly band if preferred over the ribbon, cut it at 1 X 7 1/2.
