Just for fun

I made this card for a male's birthday.  It is fairly simple and the colors are masculine.  The paper is by BoBunny and the ribbons are from my stash.  I used one of the journalling spots from the paper line as the backdrop for the sentiment.  The sentiment is from the store kit:  The Right Words.  This set is so very useful!  I punched 4 circles of different sizes and stacked them up after crinkling and inking them.  I topped them with a Basic Grey button tied with Karen Foster floss.  Love to make these kind of flowers--they are easy and cute.  I used my Scotch ATG to apply adhesive down the length of the brown velvet ribbon and then would stick it down the crinkle/pleat it then stick it down again--love the effect that makes!  This card was very simple, but really pleased with the results.

I made this card using a scrap of Creative Imaginations paper laying on my desk.  I also used more of the BoBunny paper that I used on the previous card to complete it.  I cut two smaller rectangles and distressed the edges with my craft knife and distress ink.  I stamped the sentiment from the October 2009 kit, Wherever you Go with chocolate chip Stampin Up ink.  Then I stamped the sun from the July 2009 kit, A pocket full of.  I cut the sun out, glued it to the corner of the card and trimmed it to fit.  Simple, but cute.

Thanks for stopping by.  All comments are read and appreciated.
