Fancy Fold Happiest Birthday

Came across this folded card on Pinterest and just had to try it myself!  It was easy enough that we did it for Therapy Card Nite and the girls loved it!!!  Now that I know how to do this type of folded card I will be doing others...(already have one in mind for June's card class to keep in touch)
I did change up the colors a bit for this card and although it looks complicated it really is not.  We used markers to color in the image after stamping it in staz on so it would not smear/bleed when we colored.  Yes, that is some old retired SU ribbon...  ;)

Diploma Congratulations

Here is another one of Therapy Card Nite's graduation cards.  With this card I did have different colors (blue, red, green, purple) for them to choose from according to the schools in the area.  The girls all enjoyed getting to make a card according to specific school colors.  This card was a great hit!

Mother's Day Kindness

I have to say that I love this color combo!  This is another Mother's Day card that we made at Therapy Card Nite last month and I think this rates as one of my favorites.  Although this set was a Sale-a-Bration set I really like it and will use it for years to come.  This is one of our photopolymer sets.  This card uses So Saffron, Calypso Coral, and Wild Wasabi.  These colors were made to go together!

Mother's Day Flower Pot

This card is a rendition of one I have made at Therapy Card Nite a few years ago.  It is a CASE of someone, but I can't remember who.  With this card I did use some washi tape to design the flower pot and I used our retired Buttons set to make the center of the flowers.  When you pull up the flowers there is a card attached that says Happy Mother's Day.

Graduation Cap

May is a busy month for most.  Especially if you have kids or know of kids that are graduating.  In case you don't have any this year, it is good to have some neutral cards made up just in case!  We made this one up for last months Therapy Card Nite.  I kept this one as a neutral one so it could be pulled out and used at any time.

Wedded Hearts

It's that time of year when weddings are in full swing and my family is no exception.  My youngest brother will be tying the knot this summer.  I have loved these wedded hearts that I have been coming across lately and since everyone has their own special colors I decided to stick with black, gray, and white when making this card.  I really like how the embossed edge gives it that elegant look too!

Basic Black CS, Slate Gray CS, White CS, Heart Punch (retired), Tulip Edge embossing folder (retired), Sassy Salutations Stamp Set, Basic Pearls, Black Grosgrain, Glue Dots.

St Augustine Pirate

Quintin loves pirates, especially Pirates of the Carribbean!  So it was only fitting that he got his picture taken with this pirate statue we came across while walking the shops in St Augustine.  This was also the year that we went to the new Pirate Treasure Museum.  I used one of the maps from there in the back ground because it was so fitting.
