Those are really some nice cards. I wish I had the patience to cut things out. I may try it one day, but I normally make my cards online and just print. Beautiful and fancy cards you have.

What beautiful cards! You know I was just thinking this morning on what I wanted to do for Christmas cards this year, and what I came up with was putting three (or two if three won't fit) wallet-sized family photos on the front, kind of like you did with the last card with the butterflies. Thank you for the extra inspiration! :)

Making greeting cards is one of my favorite things to do, thank you for posting your beautiful cards and instuctions.

Barb said...

I am so over the top impressed with all your cards.
Question:
What do you use to cut the scallops and circles that are just a bit smaller than each other for the layered look?
Do you have punches for all those shapes??

Also, you refer to cutting a slit in the edge of the card to put ribbon through.
Does the ribbon show on the inside then?

Thanks for all your sharing, and blessings,
Barbara Jean

Oh, this makes me want to get in my car and go down to Michael's right now! Our Senior Group at church saves the fronts of greeting cards sent to them, glue them onto co-ordinating cardstock and I guess they buy envelopes at discount. Sometimes a card shop owner will donate them. They resell these card for a very minimum fee(less than $1)that money goes to a specific mission project. If you can't use all of the greeting card, maybe you can use some of it. Glue it to a piece of colorful cardstock and finish it off. Helps stretch the budget a bit too!
