Here's the new version of the card:

Owl Birthday Balloons

I made this card for a customer's birthday.  She loves owls, so I thought the Owl Builder punch would be perfect for her card!

Some of the products are retired (the DSP  and the Coastal Cabana cardstock), but I used them anyway because . . . well . . . because I have it and I like it!!   I really like the pop of color from the Real Red; don't you?

Bright Bouquet Customer Thank You Cards

This weekend, as I was designing customer thank you cards for last month's orders, I wanted to do a card that evoked the complete opposite of what the weather was!  We had a pretty big snow storm this weekend, and it was VERY cold, so I designed a bright card with lots of raised flowers that reminded me of sunny, summer days!

As always, I'm happy to answer any questions you may have about this project or any other!

Embossed Thank You Cards

These cards were made as customer thank yous a few months ago.  (I know -- I'm trying to catch up with my posting!  I've got a list that I'm working on!!)

These cards re notecard size -- 7 x 5, scored at 3 1/2.  The embossed piece is 2 x 5, and the border is approximately 2 1/4 x 5.

I inked up the Woodland Embossing Folder using Soft  Sky ink, and then ran the small piece of Whisper White through the Big Shot.  It was then mounted onto the Soft  Sky and affixed to the Thick Whisper White card front.  You can't see it in the picture, but I lightly went over the Soft Sky background with clear Wink of  Stella to give it a glistening look.  The sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set.  Super easy and perfect for when you have to make a lot of them at once!

As always, I'm happy to answer any questions about this project or any other paper crafting questions you may have.

Happy Stampin'!
