My Largest Card & Other Card Creations

Happy Sunday! Hope your July has been a good one so far. I have made several cards and wanted to share a few with you. First, one of our customers wanted us to make a card for her pastor's wife. The pastor's wife happens to be my mother-in-law and of course I was so honored to make something to celebrate her birthday.

This card was the largest card I've made so far. (The size is 6x10 inches) It was a fun challenge and love how it turned out. Plus Ron did a great job writing something special for the inside. I know this going to bring great joy to a woman that deserves this honor! Take a look.
I used Prima pp on this white cardstock, Jolee's white fabric flower with jewels, bling swirls from Zva, rhinestone strip from David Tutera Collection and green leaves from Recollections.

This lavendar lace paper in so pretty with the silver and white flower.

I added the lace paper from the front to the inside right. Then on the left I added her picture as a backgound to Ron's writings. Looked amazing in person. WOW!

I had another card order for some female and male birthday cards. Here is a quick look at how they turned out. 

I used My Mind's Eye patterned paper. Love how it looks like a wooden fence. Looks so masculine.

I know our customer will love using these cards to celebrate her special loved ones.

Finally, here is a special congratulations card I made for a sweet cousin's engagement. I hope this card bring them more excitment and joy as they prepare for their wedding.

Used purple cardstock, Prima floral pp on the inside, Zva purple bling, Recollections flowers and leaves and this cute flag sentiment.

Hope you enjoyed looking at all these creations. Take care and have a lovely day!
