Christmas Card

We woke up to snow today which meant a perfect time to hunker down (when it snows in South Carolina you don’t leave the house for a day) and make some cards. Check out my entry for the #festivefridaychallenge – challenge #FF0022: Christmas and/or Snowflakes. I decided to incorporate both! I also had a hard time deciding on if I wanted the card to be portrait or landscape so I made one of each!

The front was all done with thinlit dies run through the Big Shot machine. The Big Shot die brush, precision based plate and fine tip glue pen helped get those delicate images and text cut and onto my card.


This may be my first card where I didn’t do any stamping on the outside of my card – for this card, my only stamping is the sentiment inside.  IMG_8209


Post update: I was selected as a Festive Favorite Fave for this entry!

Country Thinking of You

I used three different stamp sets to achieve this country thinking of you card. I started off by stamping the boots on Whisper White cardstock and coloring them in and blending with watercolor pencils. The background stamp in the Love What You Do set added a splash of color and a background to highlight the boots. I masked part of the sentiment from Lilypad Lake so I would have a simple “thinking of you” sentiment. In layering up my card, I cut out the boots and popped them up on the card with dimensionals. I tucked some linen thread around the boots to be a lasso.sentimentsbysara_boots

Sunflower Birthday

Much to my excitement, fall is approaching and there are lots of sunflowers in the area blooming. Those flowers were my inspiration for today’s card. I popped the sentiment up with dimensionals and added one of the leaves behind it for some extra layering. I don’t have the leaf punch (yet – it is on my next order) so I fussy cut this one out.
