Sweet Friend by Diana Nguyen

Hello, sweet readers!  Diana here again to share a clean and simple card that is perfect for any occasion.  The front is a simple greeting to a sweet friend – inside you could write Happy Birthday, Hello, Thank you, or just a note of friendship.  Read on to see how I made this card.  Though clean in design, a lot of interest is added by use of a veritable rainbow of colors, along with gold and some sparkly rhinestones.

Male Card by Sandy Diller

Hi friends, it’s Sandy with you today.  I hope you have had a chance to see the wonderful new ModaScrap papers. They have some great designs including masculine ones called “Manly Man.”  It is sometimes difficult to come up with cards for the guys in our lives and these papers sure help.   I just finished this one for my dad.  I was inspired by Kerin Tamir who showed a mixed media card on YouTube.

Pocket Cards with Shimmer Sheetz Lining By Judi Kauffman

by Judi Kauffman

I love making pocket cards. They’re easy, but impressive, the kind of card that announces ‘you’re worth the effort’! This time I designed a trio, working in an assembly-line fashion – all die cutting first, then all assembly.
