You Are Incredible

Hello Everyone,

Today I am here with a card that I made for my best friend. She has always faced all the challenges, which come her way, very strongly. And I really admire her for this quality. Now that she is going through a tough decision making time, I thought I should cheer her up with a handmade card to tell her that she is Incredible!
Now, about the card. This is an A2 sized card. I adhered a pattern paper to the card base. The front panel has been die cut leaving a little margin on all the edges for the pattern paper to be visible from all the sides. For the front panel, I applied the inks on acetate and smooshed it onto the cardstock. Then I stamped the images and sentiment. Then I die cut the card front. I adhered the die cut piece with a foam tape and rest of the card panel with white glue. I added some sequins to finish the card.
Hope you like the card. Supplies are listed at the end.

Leafy Thank You Card

Hello Folks,

Here with a clean and simple card. I just love how just how quick this card was. It is simple yet pretty. This is an A2 size card. I have die cut the card front. Then I stamped the images with selected colours. I used the solid and outline leaf images. Then I stamped the 'Thank You' sentiment. I finished the card with splatters of some black paint and silver sequins. And adhered the card front on a green card base.
