Coming up with a card with six different colors in it was quite a challenge, but with fall almost upon on us, the leaves from the Colorful Seasons Framelets solved my dilemma.  The "thanks kindly" from the One Big Meaning stamp set seems to add a lot to any card!  Add a Petal Burst Embossing Folder to Espresso Cardstock and the whole card just fell together!   Make sure you jump onto the rest of the blog hop to see how everyone else incorporated all of these colors into their creations!

Christmas in August???

The new Holiday Mini is fabulous with a lot of hidden gems in it.  Some of the sentiments are wonderful because they not only are large, they also have great fonts!  I have made this style of card many times before, but it is an oldie but goodie.  It holds a gift card and takes only a few minutes to make!  It is great for birthdays, weddings, practically any occasion.  The tree punch is discontinued.  If I had the holly punch in the current catalog, that would have been a great addition to this card!  The Christmas paper is Be Merry from our regular catalog and the sentiment is from the Swirly Snowflake Bundle.  Below the photos is a great tutorial for those of you that  are not familiar with this fold!

Sympathy Cards Made Simple

Online I found a white on white wedding card.  I used the basic design and made it black on black for a sympathy card.  It is stunning and I hope the photo does it justice.  The Florishing Phrases Bundle makes the entire card.  You only have to run the flourish die and small flower through the big shop one time and glue it to the Softly Falling Embossed Card to create this fast and easy Sympathy Card.
