Have a wonderful and safe Memorial Day weekend!
My next card I made for my dad. He has a tenant that just lost her mom so he asked me to make a sympathy card to give to her.I used SU! Fall Flowers DP. For the sentiment I used MSE! Sympathy Cards Sentimental Rubz. I just love those Rubz, they are so easy to use and you have a instant sentiment that looks great. The flower is by Heidi Swapp. It was pink, but I painted it with my Making Memories light blue paint, let it dry and then used my CTMH liquid glass (I got from my good friend Kat) and covered with glitter. After letting that dry for quite some time I added a white foam flower by Petaloo that I got over at PSB and attached it with a black brad. I really like the way it turned out. I need to use altered chipboard more often! It really adds to a project. Again finishing the card off with some white ribbon. Using the MSE! Rubz again, the inside of the card reads:
In the picture it looks crooked but it's not on the actual card:) I'm not the best photographer!
I may post later today, I'm working on another photo album for someone:)
Have a wonderful day and Happy Stamping!

For the cover using cardstock I covered a piece of 9 1/2 x 11 inch cardboard with Modge Podge and adhered the cardstock. I folded it under the corners like wrapping a present. I then cut a piece of same color of cardstock for the inside of the cover and adhered it with Modge Podge. I then let it dry. I made the back cover the same way. Once dry I Modge Podged the entire cover front and back with a good amount of Modge Podge to give it a glossy look. After letting that dry for several hours, I punched three holes using my Crop-a-dile, to line up with the page inserts. To decorate the front cover I used a 2 inch white ribbon and wrapped it just like you would a present and tied it in a bow. I used glue dots to make it stay nice and pretty:) I used book rings to hold the book together and tied some 1/2 inch white ribbon on each ring for an added touch. The first page reads who it's for, the date and who it's from in a pretty font from my computer:) The inside holds 25 top loading scrapbook pages for her to place her pictures from her shower and to decorate as she wants. You can't have a gift without a greeting card! So I made a 5 x 5 inch card mimicking the album. The front of the card reads "it's a shower for you". The inside reads "a special day for you". I stamped both using my CTMH Special Days set. I made an envelope using matching cardstock and to close it I included a white bow to keep it shut:)Hope everyone has had a good week:) And has a even better weekend!

Isn't this soooo true:) After having kids we need a little extra support! So this is for my dear friend who has a little boy and another on the way, gender still unknown:)
This next card I didn't stamp too much on it. The stamps I did use are from CTMH Amour Lower's. My girlfriend, Kat is a consultant, love their stamps! Another bifold, sweet and simple.
Hope you all have a wonderful day! Happy Stamping!
