Cards are Blooming in the Command Center!

With my 2020 goal to send at least one card a week going strong, I now need to add cards to my card box. The goal started because the box was too full, but it has been slimming down (at least something is in my craftroom!).

I was commissioned to make a 40th birthday card for a friend. She said the recipient likes red wine, the rustic look and jewel tones. This is what I came up with:

I absolutely LOVE how it turned out and so does my friend. I used the Cricut to cut the Polaroid frame (I actually cut two to give it some more bulk), the number 40 and fabulous. 

Since I was stamping, I also made this card but instead of the black outline, I embossed in gold. I actually like the black ink better. LOL I kept the 40 theme since I had cut a second set.

This beautiful flower stamp is from Concord & Ninth and comes with the shading stamps to color in the leaves and flowers.

I originally created this card but changed my mind. I felt like it was too light for the jewel tone she was looking for.

Isn't the acrylic front cool? I cut this at 6 x 4.25 and scored at 5.5 to make a tab. The tab was adhered between the card base and the card front (although technically, it's the card "inside"). I used a variety of stamps and the masking technique to get the flowers in the jar. I used a variety of stamps (Altenew and my stash) and alcohol markers for this one.

Because of the clear front, it was hard to get a good picture of this.
