Merry Christmas to my LOVE

What do you get when you cross a Christmas card with a Valentines Day Card??? a little something like this. This was a card that the boyfriend of a friend of mine commisioned me to make. He was very clear with what he wanted, he even picked the colours. His exact words were I want a WOW card that will show my Sweetheart how much I love her. AWWWW challenge accepted and this is what I came up with.

Reindeer Games

This card brings back a funny memory when I was making the gifts for this card we were currently having a power outage, in December at night. I made the bows with quilling paper by candlelight. My darling husband thought I was nuts. Lol. πŸ˜‚

“Excited Puppy Birthday card”

This card is pretty funny if you happen to know my dog. She loves to sit in the window to wait for us all to get home and she gets crazy excited when we do, and she has little yellow tennis balls all over the house. The dog on the card also rocks from side to side, (like the Hoppy Birthday frog from October 8th/18 and the Snappy Birthday crab from August 11th/18)

“Hoppy Birthday”

So this little cutie actually dances in the waves, as you can see from the photo he moves from side to side (he has a pendulum type mechanism). This style of card is a little thick for mailing but he is sure to put a smile on someone’s face. To see a card with a similar mechanism check out “Snappy Birthday” from August 11/18.

“Forest Friends, Happy Birthday”

This card was an experiment. When I originally saw the video for Karen Burnistons Cascading Tag card {see card “Back to the Beach” from Aug 17,18} my brain started churning if she could do that with the Adirondack chair die, what could I do with the Garden Bench die {see cardΒ “Friends” from Aug 30, 18}, I assumed that in theory that it should work, long story short, it didn’t, well not as well as the Adirondack chair turning into a cascading tag card but I did come up with this.

“Chillin Chihuahua”

Good day all, this card was a request, I had a lady who wanted me to make a card for her daughter. Usually, when I make a requested card I ask for a few ideas so I can make the card more personal. Well, this person requested a “yellow Birthday card, with yellow flowers, a yellow lawn chair, a tree with yellow flowers, a brown and black chihuahua, and the number 43 had to be on it, and white candles. I got everything but the white candles lol.Β  The Butterfly on the front is covering up a glue boo boo, (I wasn’t starting this card over because of a little glue.)

“Friends”

Hello, today I’m sharing a card that I made for my daughter to give a friend. It was a winter birthday so I chose to do a winter scene. When making this card I originally made the inside too big so the cat ears were visible when the card was closed, so I added the teal borders to make the card bigger, which in the end made the card a little brighter and better. It just goes to show that sometimes a mistake can turn a project into something better than it would have been if you just keep working on it and use your imagination.
