Thanks so much for your understanding as to why I haven’t been posting. I arrived home a few days ago after being at my mom’s house for four months but I plan to go back in a few weeks. My Mom lived in her home for 53 years! We contacted a realtor and will be selling our family home. My sister and I have been working hard each day to go through all of our mom’s things, which has been excruciating. She loved Christmas and decorated her house so that it was a magical place. Last week we went through her Christmas decorations and I will be bringing quite a lot of them home with me (so many memories!!). Since my dad passed away first, we didn’t have to take the house apart and I really didn’t understand how very hard it is to disassemble someone’s life. My heart goes out to everyone who’s already done this. 


I still won’t be posting every day but today I do have two cards to share that I made a few weeks ago. They both use the same products but I used different Designer Series Paper for each one.  Both cards were made with the Wanted to Say Dies, Scalloped Contours Dies and one of the Stripes & Splatters 3D Embossing Folders

For this first card, the base of my card is Bubble Bath cardstock. Then I added a piece of Fresh as a Daisy Designer Series Paper to the front of the card. I used the Scalloped Contours Dies to cut a piece of Basic White cardstock and then cut another piece of Basic White cardstock to fit on the scalloped rectangle but first I ran it through one of the Stripes & Splatters Embossing Folders. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the scalloped rectangle and adhered it to the front of the card. 





Next, I used the Wanted to Say Dies to cut the words, Happy Birthday. I used Bubble Bath for the background piece and Basic White for the actual words. I adhered the two pieces together and then added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back to adhere it to the card front. 




To complete my card, I added a piece of Basic White cardstock to the inside. 



For this next card, I used Bright & Beautiful Designer Series Paper and Berry Burst cardstock.
