Place Card design

Recently I was asked to design a larger than normal place card for a seniors residence.The colours match their green table cloths and yellow napkins which are the colours of the residence's logo.

Place card dimensions 4X 4 1/4"  The green name plate is 3X 3 3/4"The decorative edge are Martha Stewart punches  as well as the Monarch butterfly (edge and body is chocolate marker) 

This is the greeting that was chosen for the inside of the place card for each lady attending the breakfast at the residence.

Here is another greeting I found that I enjoyed as well. 

Maybe you would enjoy it for one of your cards!

Decorative doily edge card

              The Following are invitations I created for our church ladies group for May.
I love the lacy look of this design.  If I remember correctly the inspiration for this card came from a site by card-making-magic which I found on You Tube.  Check out the many other  videos uploaded from card-making magic.There you will find many beautiful creations made with Spellbinder products!! 

This is the Mom's Day invitation card for this month's Women Of Worth meeting.  Each month I design a different invitation for the ladies as my contribution.  I usually adhere the details (speaker, etc) with a removable tape on the inside of each card  and ask the ladies to recycle the invitations by adding a personal note and  use it as a greeting card to a friend or relative.

The Mother's Day stamp was from Michael's.I found the Violet stamp pad colour around the edge andfor the stamped lettering enhanced the card.

I added this frame from Cricut Cartridge sized at 3"

Finished card/invitation..Enjoy!

1. Cut  Pink (8 1/2 X 11") card stock to measure  8 1/2 X 10 1/2" .  
2. Cut diagonally (Right to left) from the top right corner 10 1/2  
    down to 4"on left  side of paper's edge.
3. Score card stock at 3" and 7 1/2"
4. Punch decorative edge along the diagonal edge
5. Fold in a mountain valley fold as shown.  
6. Decorate as you desire.

The butterflies were chosen from Close To My Heart Cricut Cartridge 
and cut using  1" setting with 5 depth and 4 speed.
and the floral edge was a Martha Stewart border punch.
Here I dressed the card for a greeting card I will use for
Mother's Day this year.  The butterflies are from a Martha Stewart punch.
The flowers and leaf branches are from the CTMH Cricut cartridge with the centre
flower cut 1/4"   smaller than the base flower.  The pearl in the larger flower was
 coloured to match the mauve using a Bic Marker. The double bow accents the 
circle punch and the Close To My Heart stamp (I Love You).  
The larger flower measures 1 1/2" (centre 1 1/4")  small flowers 1"and centre 3/4"
