Birthday Wishes

My card is a 5"x5". I used a beige cardstock for my card. I embossed the top and bottom of the card with a Sizzix, I don't know the name, sorry. I then inked the embossing with Dew Drop- Pearlescent Orchid. For the flowers I used vellum paper in pink and white and the Cricut cartridge- Mother's Day Bouquet, cut at 1" and 1/2". The leaves are cut at 1" and 1/2". I used a McGill petal shaper to add dimension to the flowers. The sentiment was cut from a My Creative Time Die- Fancy Frame Die and for the sentiment I used My Creative Time- Gift Card Sentiments. The pearls are from Michael's $1.00 bin.

Sympathy Card

I needed a sympathy card for one of the ladies that works for me, her mother passed away recently and I wanted her to know I was thinking of her.

There are no Cricut cuts, oh no! I started with a 4.25x5.0 card. I used the Stampin Up embossing folder- Manhattan Flowers, I then used pink chalk on the roses. I topped off the chalk with stickles to add some sparkle. The ribbon is from Walmart. The sentiment is from Stampendous- Encouraging Words.
