Sympathy cards are not my favourite to make, but I try to have a few in my box to have on hand when needed. To make this card I used the “Ghosting” technique (no pun intended). This technique gives a soft image (see the white flowers) and depending on the colours or effect you are looking for you can decide on whether you only want a subtle 2toned effect or if you want to add another colour (see darker blue flowers) to add more contrast.

So I was going through my previously made Valentine cards when I came across this gem, apparently, I shouldn’t post the new cards that I am currently making as they are all part of valentines gifts and I don’t want to ruin the surprise 😊 This card is what is called a “Neverending Card”, it is an origami style of card that as you open one layer it brings you to the next layer, when you open that layer in brings you to a third layer, when you open the third layer it brings you to a fourth layer, when you open the fourth layer it brings you to the first layer which starts the whole thing over and can be done continuously which is why it is called a Neverending Card, this one just happens to be a Valentines card 💝

I can’t get enough of these 3-D roses, they make a card really special, and this was a card for a very special girl, my daughter. This was a card I made for her quite a few years back and it is still a favorite.

These cards are super fun, this card was my Christmas card a few years ago. I had a lot of surprised reactions from my family and friends. When the recipient receives the card it looks like the image is Black and White and we see the “Wishing you a Merry Christmas” greeting, but as they pull up on the tag Santa gains some colour and our inside message is also revealed.

This card was a labor of love, that I made especially for my niece. She loves all mythical things, like mermaids and unicorns and it was so great hearing her voice when she received her very special mermaid card. 😊

I’ve got a quick one today, here is a fun circle flip card. I should have arranged them in a different order. The top pic is when the card is closed, the bottom pic is when the left side is open, and the middle pic is when both sides are open.
