THANKS

Good Morning !!! This week kinda snuck up on me. Suzanne wanted the DT to show you how versatile The Special Edition Ornament set by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD can be. They can be used for so many different occasions. I used the Partridge in a Pear Tree image to say Thanks. I can think of many other ways to use this image - Just For You - A Gift For You - Happy Birthday - I am sure you can think of more.

I am entering this card in the Cupcake Craft Challenge - Thanks a Bunch and the ABC Challenge - E is for embossing - the image is heat embossed.

It has been a really long time since I made a Pocket Card. I forgot how much fun they are to make. I heat embossed the image and colored it with Copics. Then to make her dress a little fancy, I added Inspirations to the leaves on her dress and hair. Her socks have Shimmerz. The pears have Crystal Effects added to them for shine and the ribbon and pot have just a little Stickles. The punched (MS punches) background is popped up to add dimension. To finish it off I added flatback pearls.


The inside is pretty basic, I just added a lace bow. Talking about bows - let me get a little side tracked. If you have not tried the BOW EASY - you must. They are only $5.00 and the bows are perfect every time. Now back on track. The sentiment is heat embossed and tied with a gold cord. This card is really prettier in person. I will have to give it to someone special.

Be sure and check out the other DT samples here. They are awesome !!

Thank you for stopping by. If you have time, please drop me a short note.
