More Card Makin'

Yesterday while I was off I made two cards. One was a sympathy card. My friend Marja's grandfather passed away and so I wanted to make a card for her parents. I was able to use something I made at another workshop...actually my very first workshop at Lisa's.

At the workshop we used Stampin Up's die cutting machine to make this elegant shape. I then stamped the tree and sentiment (my first time stamping!). I was able to use the piece for my sympathy card. I just adhered it to a background and then to the card base. Inside I stamped "with sympathy" and wrote a little message.

The next card I made was for my sister. Her birthday was at the end of October (I know, I'm a little late).

The inside of the card has a little pocket for the gift card that I got her. I just cut a piece of card stock to fit the card and then used my scallop edge punch on one side. I adhered the card on the three straight sides and that's how I got the pocket. The gift card fit in perfectly (sorry, I don't have a picture of that).

And there you have it, two simple cards!

I used to make all my own cards, and then I got away from it. I need to start doing it again. Those are beautiful!
