Valentine's Card!!

Hi All,

Here is a Valentine card I created a week back. I always fancy different fold cards.I dont know why. I always end up making simple cards.

And with the very limited tools I have in my Mother's place (Am missing my paper trimmer a lot. I just use scissors for cutting which has always been a difficult task for me).

Here is the card I made for my Hubby for this Valentine's day and hope liked it too.

A Anniversary Card!!!

Here is a card I created for my dear Husband on our 4th Anniversary few days back. I have always noted him liking me making simple cards.

So I decided to do a simple card but wanted a lovely sentiment as the center piece of the card. Have been searching for a perfect stamp and finally liked the one from MFT. Love this stamp set a lot.

Took a card stock, Attached a Heart diecut in the centre and then distressed it, removed the heart diecut and stamped the sentiment in the centre. Added a few Butterflies from Bo Bunny Stamp set colored with water color pencils.

This is the end result and am happy with the outcome. Pls leave your comments. That encourages and motivates me.

Christmas card 2013!!!

I have not been crafting much for the last three months except on special occasions and festivals. Christmas has always been so special to me and how can I not create a Christmas card.

I used my new Tim Holtz Ornate On the Edge Die in the card (Never got an opportunity to use it since I bought it three months back).

I have used a Pattern paper which Colette has sent as a gift... Loved the Bright colors of the paper. I just wanted to use all of those Papers she sent. They all were cute.. The Ribbon was also part of her gift.

I wanted a Poinsettia flower but had no stamp or die for it. I used a part of the Tim holtz tattered flower to create this flower. Colored the diecut with water color pencils. Added Glitter balls in the centre and wow I loved the result.

The Oak Leaf is a RAK from Devika of Kukies Basket.

Here is the card:
