A Little Catch Up With Cards

I hadn't gotten around to sharing these cards that I had made over the last months so I am sharing them in one card catch up post.

First up... a birthday card for a friend.

Supplies:  Patterned paper (Fancy Pants), glittered chipboard pieces (DCWV), cardstock and sentiment stamp (CTMH), ink (StazOn), Baker's Twine (Maya Road), letter stickers (October Afternoon), boarder punch (Stampin' Up), jewels (Dollarama)

This one is unique in that I made the chevron strip with chipboard photo corners and edged two of the chipboard pieces with Maya Road baker's twine.  I really like the weight and thickness of this twine.  It shows really well on projects.

Second up... a birthday card for Dad.

Supplies: Stamps [bow ties, monticule and 'stache sentiment and sentiment stamp], chipboard and cork label (Magenta), wht cardstock and coloured inks (CTMH), black ink and Stickles(Ranger), paint (Plaid), blk cardstock (Bazzill), jewels (misc.)

This one was made using stamps and chipboard from the new Magenta Gentle-made collection. For how-to tutorial, head over to my post on the Magenta blog here.

Lastly,  a card for mom.

Supplies: Patterned paper and pink cardstock (DCWV), black and white cardstock (CTMH), border punch (Fiskars), letter stickers (Reflections), baker's twine (Jillibean Soup), jewels (Dollarama)

I love when you can take some scraps and create something pretty from them.

Great cards, Cassandra! Really loving all the shimmer and shine on the first, the repetition on the second, and the bold pops of color against the black background on the last! So pretty!

I absolutely adore the bows on the second card. These are all really fabulous!
