New Card Designs you might enjoy

This is my Mom's Card for 2013
Material and Tools used –

Purple 8 ½” X1 1” card stock  is scored and folded at  5 ½”  and cut at 7” to measure  a  5 ½” X 7”  card base.  The corners were rounded with a corner punch.

The decorative white card stock was cut using a Gypsy, Close To My Heart Cricut cartridge and expressions 2 machine.  Using the Gypsy and adjusting measurements I joined the decorative outer edge with the inner oval. 

The Mom embellishment is cut from the Cricut Mother’s Day cartridge and further embellished with stickles.

The lilac flowers are cut using 2 tools 1) Heartfelt Creations  (5 petal posies ) and 2)  Martha Stewart violet punch and the floral vine punch (used as a background base).  The flowers are layered and retouched on the edges with Tim Holt’s Dusty Purple distress ink pad. Mint green pearls were added to the centres to add a finished touch.
The bigger leaves are simply hand cut and ink embellished then glued in place as a filler behind the posies.
The green bow is the pull string type ribbon bow glued in place with Beacon’s glue. (I appreciate its grip on bow materials.)  The final embellishment is a handmade jeweled hat pin inserted behind the bow.

This is a Sympathy Card for a dear friend.
The Card base is 5 X7" cut from 8 1/2" X 11" mauve card stock.
 The dry embossed folder is from Darice,
 the butterfly is from the new Martha Stewart  collection (CHA 2013)
with tiny pearls to accent the body and the stamp is one I purchased from Michael's craft store on sale (A great find at 4$).
This was a play day card using the same new MS butterfly punch as the card above.
The card's dark brown base measures 5 1/2" X 4"
I used mauve on blue card stock for the butterfly and added some bling using  stickles
to coat the openings of the wings.
The DMCV design paper mat is cut from the new Creative Cards cartridge from Cricut
and glued unto the blue 5 1/8" X 3 3/4" background mat.
The banner was cut from the same cartridge and is cut at  3" long X 1 3/4" wide
 the edges are inked using a Memento Coco brown ink pad.  
The thinking of you stamp is from Stampin' Up and embellished with a dark blue rhinestone.
