2 Cards

>> Tuesday, April 20, 2021

Hi Everyone,

It's a gloomy weather week here in north east Ohio, so I needed to spur on some spring though my stamping.  

This lovely greeting is suitable for Easter, or even a sympathy card.  It's always nice to have those in one's stash, for unexpected moments.  I dry embossed one half with flowers and stamped and colored the other side to match.  After attaching the die cut greeting, I added a few square gems to balance out the design. 


Did you know that DRS Designs has a birthday stamp for every month of the year?  They do, and it's such a fun way to personalize someone's card!

Here I used the month of April and designed it using extras and leftovers on my craft table.  The chick was a spare from my place cards, the die cut grass was also an unused extra, the background stamp is always on my table, and the flower is one I didn't use on this card.  The moral of the story is, don't throw anything out!

Here are the links to these stamps:

Cheers to sunny days ahead...  
 Thanks for visiting!

Great embossing folder to pair with the stunning floral branch and great layout too. And that little chic is super cute in the tall grass die cut. Both cards are beautifully designed.

I totally forgot about the birthday month stamps and your April card is fabulous. The EF and dogwood branch image go so well on your other card - very encouraging and sweet, Karin. Two GREAT cards. Hugz and wishing you some sunshine too!

Lovely cards, Karin! I really like the EF paired with the dogwood flowers - so pretty together. And I agree that new sentiment does work well for a sympathy card. Your little chick pairs nicely with the birthday greeting too. These are both sweet springtime cards!

Your cards certainly did the trick for me! My day was brightened immediately upon viewing them! Like everyone else said, I'm stunned at how well your EF matches the dogwood image, but it's a gorgeous card regardless. Your chick birthday card is a cutie too :)

Such a pretty card on top with those dogwood and the matching ef! That makes a beautiful combo!
The second card with your cute chick and great layout is super cute!
