Thinking of You "Spring Card"

This is called a spring card because of the way it folds flat in an envelope then 'springs' up when taken out of the card. Here is the front view

And here are two pics of the card open. Enjoy!

For A Wonderful Aunt

I did another glitter card, this time for my wonderful aunt who is living in the U.S.A.

It's black with squiggle lines done in burnt orange, outlined with gold glitter.

I found this lovely vintage poinsettia image and just had to try it out. I glittered the edges of the card with gold polyflakes.

Cards Galore!

The cards with images of cardinals and robins were made with hand painted toppers by Mary Helen Sims, a very talent artist. (Thank you Mary Helen for your wonderful work). The teabag tiles on these cards were also made with her images.

Vintage Holly - All Glittered Up!

This card came about as a bit of a surprise. I saw the image and decided I must use it this Christmas. After about a half hour of trying different layouts, I thought - wonder how it would look with glitter. And here it is in all its shimmering glory.
