A few cards I made recently

I thought I'd post a few more cards that I've made recently. I'm having fun making these and I just got a new embossing machine, so I'll be an embossing fool for a while lol.

Without further ado, here they are: (Sorry, all were taken with my phone camera)

The first is an anniversary card for a sweet couple celebrating 40 years! Right below is a close up of the background. I'm not sure how well you can see it, but I like how the white on white turned out.

This next card was to uplift a friend who is going through some really rough times:

This next card I just made trying out the new digi stamp and paper I got as freebies from Create with TLC:

A birthday card using more images from Create with TLC:

A going-away card:

Father's Day cards:

And two thank you cards:

That's it for now...now to go play with my embosser!

Wedding Card

I want to share with you a card I made for a friend who is getting married. I'm still a newbie at making my own cards, but I'm sure having fun with it!

I made the background with my Silhouette. The cake is a sticker that I bought and I made up the saying (I didn't 'make it up' lol, but I designed it with paintshop pro) and got the frame design around the verse from Silhouette also.

Then I added some ribbon and a bow. That sounds awfully easy, but this card was probably the hardest I've taken on so far. The background was painful...making sure it didn't rip while getting out all those tiny cutouts! And the pink part of the frame was really hard to align. But I am happy with how it came out!

Here it is: (Sorry for the quality of the photo...I took it with my phone)
