Amazing Cards with Fine Details

Yesterday I mentioned that my friend Jackie scrapbooks totally opposite of the way I do it, but they both seem to work. Her scrapbooks are beautiful, but she creates DELICIOUS cards! Her attention to detail is exceptional, and she always completes the card with some artwork inside.

Take a look:

Card 1: Done in pink tones and embellished with lace, ribbon, bitty pearls and sparkly tulle. A lot of the pieces are cut from the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge available from Close To My Heart.

Card 2: Using dry embossed white paper for the bottom, Jackie created this simple but elegant card using the Pemberly paper packet (top and denim paper "ribbon"). On the very top of the CTMH background and texture paper packs, there are three different decorative 1/2" strips you can use to complete or embellish your work.

Card 2: A lovely message stamped and placed upon another Art Philosophy Cricut piece.

Card 3: Here is a gorgeous blend of "vintage" pale green, brown and pink paper that features a silk rolled flower, pink tulle, "vintage" cut outs and a stamped message flanked by perfectly set pearls.

Card 3 - Inside:
What a stunningly detailed and adorned message, again using hand-set pearls! Who wouldn't want to receive a card like this?

Card 4: A beautiful butterfly is stamped in gold ink (you could also heat emboss the image in gold). The background is a sheet of background and texture paper from the Florentine paper packet from Close To My Heart, and the stamped message is placed on a torn piece of colonial white sponged around the edge in Lagoon ink. The sponging really accentuates the message, especially when it lies against the white knit fleurette and tiny grosgrain ribbon.

Card 4 - Inside
A nicely placed message inside the card with a small butterfly stamped in gold and twilight. Both word stamps feature CTMH's honey ink.

The back of her cards are also stamped indicating handmade - nice touch. (sorry I forgot to rotate it).

You can also stamp the outside of the envelope to further personalize your handmade work!

OK, Jackie. I'm inspired now. Gotta go create!

PS - Thanks for letting me share!
