Happy Holidays Christmas Greeting Card

Happy Holidays Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

I love the traditional colors of this card and the plaid patterned paper sends it right over the top.

Great coordinating flowers accented with spiral stamens, twine, and you guessed it…more plaid.

I used a paint pen to highlight the sentiment cut apart and heat set it for fabulous dimension. Sequins are fun here as well and since they’re clear they add detail without making it too busy.

Cute holiday postage stamp is layered over and attached with a wooden clothespin. I like to finish the inside of my cards with coordinating papers.

Pirate Graduation Card

Standard

Hey Peeps! We’re starting a new Anything Goes with Ribbon or Trim Challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Okay. I’m just gonna say it. This may be the coolest graduation card ever. At the least it’s the coolest one I have ever made. This card was gifted to an awesome young man who is a friend of our youngest Son and a fellow Boy Scout. We are super proud of him. He has a very bright future I’m sure  : ) Well done Zachery!!!

Pirate Graduation Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

Did I mention it’s a shaker? And did I mention that I die cut and embossed those stars with a shiny silver finish? That’s how you an tell how much I like this young man.

Pirate Graduation Card Polly's Paper Studio 02

I wanted the Pirate P to be inside the shaker…but I didn’t want it to get turned over or stuck in a carner so it’s secured in place with fishing line.
