One of my teammates is changing companies and today is his last day with us. I made this card rather quickly last night for the team to sign so that he had a good send off from us. Yes, I made an underwear card, and I love it!
The card base is my trusty white card stock from Walmart.
The kraft paper is from Recollections at Michael's.
This card is very similar to the one I made for my brother and sister-in-law for Christmas. I liked the papers and the layout so well that I made a couple of cards like this. This one I gave to my boyfriend's step-mom for Christmas. We had a gift card for her so I made sure it would fit inside the card first.
The gray dotted paper is from the Sparkling Sleigh Ride stack from My Mind's Eye.I bought that stack on clearance a few years ago from Hobby Lobby (I don't shop there often but loved this stack when I found it).
The reindeer image is from Hampton Art. It was colored with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.
I found a cute pinwheel card on Pinterest and followed the link to see if there was a tutorial. Sure enough, there was!
I have seen other tutorials for this pinwheel, but I followed this one and I found it to be very easy and fun. I had some Christmas patterned paper in my stash that I pulled out. I wasn't sure that these two patterns would really work together, but I think they work well. I planned on turning these into cards, but I used them for gift tags instead. I wrote the person's name on the green squares (yes, all four of them). I think they turned out well. Once everyone had unwrapped their gifts one of my friends took the tags off from the wrapping and saved them. She said they were too cute to throw away. I will definitely be using this technique in the future.
I woke up this morning and realized that I forgot to wrap the gifts for our Christmas family get together today. Since one of the gifts was a gift card, I needed to make a holder or a card to put it in.
I decided on a card.
The card base is from Stampin Up. I bought it from a beautiful woman who, due to health issues, couldn't craft anymore. I don't know the name of them or the color.
The snowflake patterned paper is from the DCWV Christmas and Winter 180 stack.
Since it is such a similar color to the card base, I inked the edges of all of the papers used with black ink.
The gray dotted papers is from the Sparkling Sleigh Ride stack from My Mind's Eye. I bought this stack on clearance a couple of years ago.
The image is from Hampton Art.
I stamped and colored a bunch of images, including this one, weeks ago with my Spectrum Noir markers.
I have much to learn with these markers but I think it turned out pretty cute.
My brother and sister-in-law are big fans of University of Michigan so I decorated the tree with their team colors.
The rhinestones are from my stash.
I also made tags from previously stamped and colored images but I did not take pictures of those.
