Busy, busy, busy...

I have been busy this past weekend creating and boy, was that fun! I'd like to share a few of the things with you today!

The first thing is a birthday card and an envelope. Here is the card:

The light messed this pic up a little bit. There is only kraft card stock as the base of the card with a transparency from Glitz on top. The pic makes it look like there is something white under the transparency but there is not. Other supplies used include: Crate paper, my Cuttlebug, Hero Arts stamp, EK Success border punch, and vintage ribbon.

Next is the envelope:
This pic above shows the front of the envelope. I used more Crate Paper and Hero Arts stamps on this envelope.
Here is the complete set:

Unfortunately I had the need to make a sympathy card. I used some scraps and plenty of Glimmer Mist on the butterflies. (The butterflies were from a Nestabilities die). The In Sympathy sentiment was a rub on.

A close up of the sympathy card:

Thank you for stopping by today! I'll have more to share tomorrow!

These are so wonderful! I love the matching envelope!!! I am sorry to hear about the gentleman from church passing away. My sympathies to his family. He sounded like a really neat person. Are you all shoveled out?

Gorgeous cards! The butterfly card is beautiful and I love the use of the doily. Sympathy cards are hard but mean so much more when made from the heart. Wonderful job on all your cards.
