Thank You Card

I wanted to use my border embossing folder so I decided to use it for this card.  It's one of the borders in the Pop Culture pack from Cuttlebug.  For the background I used Versamark and 'thank you' from the Wonderful Words SU set. The sentiment came from the SU Curvy Verses set.  For the piece of paper I used the SU ticket punch corner punch and the ribbon slot punch from Fiskars.  I tied the ribbon in both directions to change it up a bit.  I also cut the front of the card narrower so that the embossed border could be seen while the card was open or closed.

Tools: CB embossing folder - Pop Culture; Fiskars ribbon slot punch; Versamark ink (background); SU stamp sets: Wonderful Words, and Curvy Verses; SU ticket punch corner punch; ribbon; Cuttlebug machine

Anniversary Card

Friends of ours got married the same year we did...and they have the same initials as we do!  They live across the country from us and we always send them an anniversary card.  This is what they got this year:

For this I used the LOVE set from SU and matted the small squares on a piece of red paper that I used the border and corner SU punch for.  Don't you just love punching all the way around a piece of paper now?!  I cut the gold ribbon to resemble an arrow and for the background I used my Cuttlebug to emboss (using the Textile embossing folder).  I used SU Stampin' Pastels to highlight the embossing.  I chalked around the edges as well.  Inside I used the Full of Life set from SU and the 'happy anniversary' is from Inkadinkado.

Tools: SU sets: LOVE & Full of Life, Cuttlebug, CB Textile embossing folder, SU border and corner punches, corner rounder punch, ribbon, ST Stampin' Pastels, Inkadinkado stamp
