Note Cards

These two cards will be for friends I will soon get together with this weekend. I can hardly wait to see them again. These as well as one I posted yesterday are cut using the largest Labels One Nestabilities being sure to leave an edge to make the fold for the card. Double is the word for the first card. There are two Labels One cuts, two hearts and two butterflies. Have I told you how much I love my Nesties!! This one should justify what I mean. Actually, I didn't realize all I used were Nesties on this card until I began describing it! And I certainly didn't realize I had so many doubles, ha! It just happened. The only thing you may not notice is the sponging I did on the white base card inside the larger die.

Paper: Basic Grey Two Scoops, Bravo Burgundy, Pretty in Pink, Vellum, White
Other: Nestabilities: Labels One, Hearts, Butterflies, foam adhesive for the butterflies

I just love the softness to this next one. Pink, pink and more pink. Delicate, feminine and whimsical. Turning the card on its side made this a landscaped card. The base was lightly sponged in Pretty in Pink with tiny flowers stamped in second generation PIP. A couple of Martha Stewart leaves (one of my favorite punches) were punched out of PIP. A Labels Three was punched out of PIP to "house" the main image. An Oval was punched out of white c/s, stamped, sponged and placed on top with foam adhesive. Only two of the three layered stamps were used from the Cutie set of Stampology. The first layer is in PIP and the outline was in Rose Red. This oval was edged in PIP. The small flower of the Flourish Accent Spellbinders die was cut, embossed and then stenciled in the Rose Red.

I hope you enjoy these little cards. Thank you for your sweet comments!
