Love getting cards from other card makers and was happy for Valentine's Day I received two cards. The first is from Mary from SC and her blog is: carolinacardsbymaryh.blogspot.com. Here is her card for Valentine's Day:
Mary's cards are always dimensional with her papers, textures, and layers and this card does not disappoint. Her stamped image is too cute -- from the blue eyes on the elephant to her pink toes. Mary embossed the hot pink card stock for the card front with a hearts embossing folder and it has a shimmer to it. Then adding her two scalloped squares of black/white hearts is a nice touch to the card front. As usual Mary does magic with her Copics for the colouring on her stamped image and the shading around the die cut circle for her image is a perfect touch. Her hearts on the card front have pop dots and that adds more dimension to this card front. Once again, lucky me to be on Mary's mailing list -- :0)
This next card is from another friend --
This card is on a white card stock base. She used the Flutter Tree die from Spellbinders for the tree. Added red butterflies to that. The greeting is from the Stamp Of The Month stamp set from Close To My Heart (you can order from donnaschaeffer.ctmh.com). The center white piece the tree is on is a textured card stock and that brings dimension to her card front. She added red crystals by the holiday greeting and in person they sparkle.
Happy me to be on the mailing list of these two card makers :0) --- TFL and YOLO
