These two cards were made by request for my husband's coworker.  Unfortunately, the specs were pretty much non existent.  I wasn't even sure what the thanks was for other than it wasn't a wedding or shower, the recipients are hillbillies, and nothing feminine. So, this is what I came up with.  Virtually identical but the strip of cardstock.  The only ribbon I have is rather feminine or holiday specific so that was an ix-nay on ribbon.  i didn't use any dimentionals since they're being mailed. The only added touch was the brads.

Lone Ornament

I saw a few cards like this but with a single, round, glitter ornament.  I changed it up a little but and used a layered ornament and glittered the top layer.  Again, I used my faux branch punch for the tree branch. The card is embossed with the cuttlebug D'vine swirls folder.

Christmas in July

So my mom and I were making cards the other day and decided if we make a few Christmas cards each month, there won't be that last minute rush right before the holidays to crank out 50 cards.  This one was from the very first file i actually purchased from Silhouette, lol.  When I bought the machine, I was given a $10 credit to the online store.  I still have a $9.01 credit :D.  I have pinned nearly a dozen cards using the Martha Stewart medium branch punch....which I do not own.  I duplicated the punch on the Silhouette and mashed a few of the ideas together.  The door knob is just a gold brad.

Happy Fall Y'all

So the weather has been awful (like everywhere else).  90 degrees during the day, high humidity and an air conditioner that just can't keep up.  Cruising around pinterest makes me just crave fall which we don't get in Florida anyway, but still makes me dream of pumpkin pie, cinnamon and cooler evenings.  I have seen a million of these punch pumpkins but since i don't have an oval punch, I just used the silhouette. I used my cuttlebug embossing folder from the  cooking set for the main background. In retrospect, I should have just printed a sentiment since I am not fond of the placement of this one and was unable to fix it.

Just Bee-Cause

This is another card I made for a friend using the Bird's Cards mix and match free digital cut file.  I added a brad for a tiny bit of bling.

Thank You

This is just a thank you card for my mother-in-law that I made using a free silhouette cut file from  Bird's Cards mix and match collection.  This was just made with some scrap ribbon.
