Christmas in July Card

Hello Bloggers,

A Christmas card today. No July can pass without one! :)

After staring at this beautiful green paper for a very very long time I decided I wanted to make a card that shows it off. Properly.

So, here is the only patterned paper I've used on this card. The white layer is rather pierced.
 The words Happy and Wishes come from a Happy Birthday set, but I replaced the word birthday with Winter from a totally different set. :)

Mixed Media Birthday Card

This card made it to the Top 3 @C.R.A.F.T. Challenge!!!

Hello Bloggers,

a very fluffy card today :)

I added some not exactly very floral layers into the flowers, and this is the result of it :)
Modelling paste, threads, buttons, tiny balls, inking, stamping, sequins, a whole bunch of die-cuts...
This card is of a really not-standard size and shape, so I had to use my envelope calculator to make an envelope for it. Successfully! Lots of thanks again and again to my dear husband who made this wonderful tool for me!

Girl's Dream Jumble Card

This card is the winner @ Crafty Calendar Challenge!

And it made it to the Top 5 @ Crafty Cardmakers!

Hello Bloggers,

A girly stuff card today. I know it's all kind of jumbled up :) Well, anyways... dreams are not necessarily always organized and orderly, are they?

I just used a bunch of die-cuts in their original form - cut and embossed only, no extra inking or anything.

Finished with only a couple of pearls, this card was to travel a long way, so I tried to keep it as flat as possible.

Thank You Card. Bedankt.

The major inspiration for this card was the beautiful Marianne Design Creatables Lr0300 Anja`s Border. It's a very pretty die, yet I find it a little tricky to use. It's rather specific and not easy to show off. This is my attempt to create something unusual with it. :)

The roses are punched and so are the lovely 3D leaves around them. The Nellie Snellen Floral Punches are great!

PS Detail: Nellie Snellen Floral Punches
I love these punches. They are not cheap, but the elements they produce are really beautiful. Look at the leaves! They are not embossed - they are really 3D!
These Cameo Punches are from the same family. Lovely!
