Two Cards that I made recently and forgot to post!!!

First of all I want to mention that on August 3rd we found out that my darling husband has prostate cancer and on September 6th he took his first of 45 radiation treatments.....so please keep him in your prayers!!!  So far, everything is going pretty well.

This first card is one that I made for him for his 77th birthday which was on August 27th.  Some time back I had seen that "Even when it rains" phase and thought what a great idea for his birthday card...so here it is!


I found the image of the couple under the umbrella somewhere online and turned it into a "cut and print" file to cut on my Cameo.  I also found the puddle and cloud images online and made them into regular cut files to cut on my Cameo.  I made a "raindrop" stencil and used embossing paste to make the raindrops.  I used some liquid pearls on the girl's dress and boots.

For the inside of the card I found the "sun rays" and "you are my sunshine" images online and made them into cut files for my Cameo.  I used some Wink of Stella on them.  All of the "text" was computer generated.

The second card is a "thank you" card for my oldest brother and his lovely girlfriend!  They were here from Alabama for a brief visit the end of August and I had them here at our home for a luncheon and they brought me a lovely bouquet of flowers.


I scanned a die cut of the large rose from the Stampin'Up "Rose Garden Thinlets Die Set" to cut different sizes of it in the same pink color as my pink panel, cut them with my Cameo and adhered them using matte glue to make it look like I had embossed it.  I used Lil'Inker dies to make the frame and added the lovely Gina Marie oval die ("Fancy Floral Frame") and butterflies (from JustRite "Elecant Garden Label Dies") and after making a mat to go under the Gina Marie "Thank You" I added them to the outside of the frame.


For the inside of my card I used an extra pink die cut on the left side and I made a rose background that I printed on my Canon inkjet for the right side.  The message is computer generated.



I altered another die cut of the Gina Marie oval frame to make my "signature label" for the card.


 I just want to add that Ron & Ann loved their card and I also want to make mention of how much I am loving the Gina Marie dies that I have been purchasing and I love that they are SO affordable!!!
