Not my best work, but pretty good I think for my first try! I had an issue doing one of these because I do not own any punches, with the exception of 3 MS border punches, so I had no way to punch out the semi circle as indicated by the directions, so I improvised, TFL!
Part one of my attempt to take over the spare room...
This is the newest addition to my craftroom, aka my corner of the spare room that is slowly growing. I'm very excited about this for many reasons
A. 50% off scrapbooking storage at michaels (ended sat.)
B. My mommy bought it for me, so it was essentially FREE.
C. I put it together all by myself and I didn't even mess it up! woohoo
This is part of a large set, I intend to collect them all!
I know its a little early but I had to make it while he was busy! This card was inspired by a previous RAQ challenge. the little heart with the people fit inside the velum pocket. The people are EDPD cut at 2.5'' the heart is cut at 3''. The bkgd paper heart is a stamp and i used souffle 3d gel pens to embellish. The inside is from the DCWV wedding scrapbook kit.

When going through my surplus of cards to protect them I also noticed that I have a shortage of general congratulation cards, so here's two to add to the stack.
blue card: 10x 4.5 '', paper DCWV all dressed up and recollections, stamps are from technically tuesday and stamped in MS black ink and colored in with gel pens for the added sparkle. celebrate is cut from the celebrations cart (i don't remember the size) and cut from the same paper as the bkgd. The matting for the drinks is embossed with divine swirls folder and brushed with silver colorbox ink. The middle is left blank to coordinate with a specific event (promotion, new home, etc ). edges inked with metallic blue colorbox ink.
red card: 10 x 4.5'' card, c Top 2'' black square matted on a 2.25'' silver square, dragonfly stamp from targe stamped in white MS ink and stickeled over(silver and icicle). ribbon better homes and garden. bottom :2.5 silver matting embossed with circles and dots cuttlebug folder congrats cut @ 1'' font missed your exit SCAL.
I did these cards based on a AD challenge on the cricut messageboard was my inspiration for the colors / style. I decided to go with get well cards because I had to reorganize my card stockpile the other day because they were just laying around everywhere and I had an unforturate Coke(r) accident and there were casualities and in that process I realized I only had one get well card, people get sick all the time!! lol so here goes
solid color papers are recollections : essentials, cape cod, and jewel tones.
font is "missed your exit"
also used recollection brad, gold and icicle stickles, butterfly stamp from target.
