Anyway, I no longer dream of writing cards for Hallmark. Now, I want to sell cards that I personally designed. Last weekend, I finished 5 which I made for friends who will be celebrating their birthdays this week.
A closer look. - I stamped the sentiment. I painted the letter B with acrylic and embossed with 3 layers of UTEE (Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel).This is for a girl friend celebrating her birthday today! I sewed the button on the flower shape which I cut from kraft paper. I embossed the word "delight" using gold embossing powder.

This is for my colleague who celebrated her birthday last week. I stamped the words, flowers and butterfly and created layers for some dimension. I punched the edges of the 2nd layer paper with Threading Water Border Punch from Fiskars. The re was such strong demand for this puncher that I felt so lucky to have snagged one - on sale too!
I love the vibrant colors on this one. I stamped and inked the flowers and butterfly. I also created layers and added glitter for some sparkle.

Last but not least, this is for another colleague who will celebrate her birthday on Sunday. I dry-embossed the flower on Kraft paper and inked the raised image. I stamped the sentiment and wrapped a ribbon along the lower portion of the card. I so love the simplicity of this one that I am thinking of adding this to my favorite styles.
So, will you buy my cards if I start selling them?
