Anniversary Tunnel Card

Last Wednesday was my sister and her husband's 10th year Wedding Anniversary!  I can't believe it has been 10 years already.  This card is a tunnel card which was another fun card to make.

The card measures 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 and the inside part measures 8 x 5.  Score the outside at 4 1/4 and the inside part is scored at 2, 4 and 6.  Easy peasy!!   Hope they love it!  Happy 10th Anniversary Connie & Russ!!

Sunflower Pop up Book Card

Here is my first Pop up book card!  Easier than I thought.  My sister,  Chris gave me one she made for my birthday in August and I have been wanting to make one ever since.  I used the Graphic 45, French Country Paper which I think now is retired but I have been hoarding some sheets of it.  It is a beautiful collection but what collection from Graphic 45 isn't!  I used the cut aparts from the collection on the front with a fleur-de-lis flower from $1 bin at Michael's.   I always find great things in that $1 bin!!

Decorated the inside with more sunflower dies from Dienamics and the vine die is from Memory Box.  Love the way that this card came out but I am not sure who is going to get it.  October is a big birthday month so I am sure it will be used!  Can't wait to make another one!  Thanks for stopping by!

Shoes are the best!

My daughter's birthday was last week and I saw this card on pinterest.  I thought it was cute and perfect for my daughter who likes shoes.  Black, white and red always is a great color scheme.   The shoe die is from Die-namics, I think.  The butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch.  The flowers are from the $1 bin at Michael's.  The paper is from DSW from Joann's.  Love the Tri-shutter style cards. Happy Birthday Lindsey!!
