Two Similar Cards

Another day, another thunderstorm….and more on the way. We just cannot seem to have two or three nice days in a row this summer…..but we have been having two or three rainy days in a row.

I recently made two cards almost the same but with different sentiments…..and I may do this more often!

Here is the birthday card.

The flowers were a free download from the Internet that were coloured and cut out. Stickles were added to the centres. All the paper is from my stash – as usual! Luckily I had some purple cardstock to match the purple card base and some designer paper with small purple flowers on it. The labels were die cut with a Spellbinder’s fancy rectangle die and glued together. First I stamped the sentiment and then I glued on the flowers and leaves. Then the little flower stamp was added to fill in some blank spaces.

And here it is as an Anniversary card.
This time I went with a light purple card base and used the same cardstock as the inner fancy rectangle. Other than that, the card was made the same way. I think I like the birthday version a bit better but this one is more subtle so suitable for an anniversary.

That’s all for a thunder stormy Wednesday, July 12, 2017.

  1. Oh we could use the rain Violet... a usual it has stopped raining around here after a fairly wet spring and beginning of summer it has dried out and gotten HOT! and HUMID... and ridiculous.....I KNOW there was a reason i moved here... oh yeah... hubby nearer his family... its not dead brown west tx... 'cheaper'.. okay i have my priorities straight again... I just know i didn't move here for the summers... lol

    Well you know i love purple so you had me there. :) But really those are pretty flowers you found on the internet.. I just don't have your kind of luck when i go searching... I tend to find cutesy , cartoony things and thats just not my thing... Very beautiful Violet! I'm a little partial to the darker background too... but i love them both!

    i have a meatloaf in the oven.. well really a turkey loaf i guess i should call it... We'll have it with baked potatoes and a veggie.. And i have some cornbread to stick in the oven since i have the oven going i might as well make it.. Take care girlfriend!!! Hugs! deb
