A friend of mine, Lucie has requested a couple of custom creations and here is what I came up with.... First, she needed a birthday card for her sister. This birthday is a BIG one so she and her sister are heading to Italy next year to celebrate. She found a card she liked in the "Originals" idea book and I took it from there. I used a downloaded picture of Italy and gold embossed one of the frames from the exclusive convention stamp set around it. This took a lot of masking as I didn't have a frame large enough to fit around the picture. I used chocolate ink to stamp flourishes around two corners of the card front and then used my craft blade to create a cut out frame to see the map that was inside. I really liked the look. Next I created two small tags to include the sentiment and attached them with gold embroidry floss.

Some Custom Creations...
Hello again and be careful not to faint since I have actually posted something before the month is up!
Next she needed a wedding card. While she picked out another card from "Originals", I didn't have the ring stamp set, so I bought a ring set in the bridal section at Michaels. I used the Card Commentary stamp set stamped in Pansy Purple and then a piece of the dimesional elements borders and some dry embossing and I think a quite elegant card was finished.
Hope she likes them and I plan to be back soon with the baby cards she requested as well.
