Shaker Card

I saw a tutorial for this card about 2 years ago and have been meaning to try it for just that long.  One of my nieces turned four over the weekend, so I decided to give it a shot.  I didn't remember where I saw the tutorial, but I remembered the basics.  I veered from the tutorial and put the "bulk" that creates the shaker effect on the outside of the card rather than the inside.  I use dimensional foam a lot on my cards, so it seemed for logical for my needs.  By the way, my niece is IN LOVE with the card and has told me "thank you" about a million times!

Mother's Day Cards

This is a tryptic (if you will) of cards I made for my sisters and sister-in-lawe for Mother's Day.  One of my sisters gave me a card like this on my last birthday (September) and I've been meaning to try it out ever since.  I must say that I really love this card now because it is VERY simple t make and can be easily adjusted to any size.

Telephone Card

I made this card for Administrative Professionals' Day.  I'd never used this cut from Wild Card and decided to give it a shot.  I ended up creating a tri-fold card that I ended up really liking.
