Die Cut Flower Thank You Card

This is something a little different
I used my die cut floral and swirl shapes and of course embossing panels to make this Thank You card
It was interesting to work out how this was going to come together and I think it looks quite affective

I also entered this card for the Rainbows Last 2011 Challenge

Silhouette Thank You Card

This time of year I get to make some Thank You cards for the friends that have sent me Christmas Presents.
Most of them are simple little cards, and it makes me think a bit more how to make a none 3D card interesting :D
Generally I try and use embellishments to make the card interesting.
The topper was from a Making Cards Mag and it worked well with one of my spellbinder layer dies.
Punched flowers and butterfly - the butterfly I painted in with cosmic gold paint - gives it a lovely shimmer

This was a last minute Christmas Card that I made using a Thomas Kinkade design from a Joanna Sheen Craft CD

Thank You Cat Card

Its the time of year when I made the odd card to thank a friend for a festive present in the New Year
I tend to use all kinds of themes for these cards, as I don't feel it really matters what images or designs you use

Sepia Vintage Lady Card

I used a vintage photo design I have on CD to make this lovely birthday card

The embossing pattern in the base cad doesnt show very well in this photo, which is a shame as it's quite delicate.
