Marine theme

For my mother in law’s birthday I made a card with sea and marine theme in mind.


 I made an oblong card in white and attached a red paper and punched the edge with scalloped border punch from Stampin Up.

Then I did a pennant and attached the pennants with adhesive pads and silver thread behind.   
I punched out the name and the word congratulations (Grattis) with dies from Marianne Design. I added three gems. 

Finally the gift had to match the card 😉 


Baby boy Felix

When my cousin and his wife (who lives on the other side of the Atlantic) had a baby I wanted to make a card and send it to them. 
I used a die from Marianne Design to cyt out the letters for the name. I added glossy accent for the heart and attached a gem at the end of the name tag. 

I have no stamps with English subtitles but I had a paper that suited and then wrote my own greeting inside the card.  


Turquoise card 

I gave away a piece of jewelry in turquoise and wanted to make a card that matched the gift.
For the turquoise paper I used an embossing folder with dots. The white paper strip I cut out and glued. 

Then I punched out letters in the turquoise paper. (”Grattis” is congratulations in swedish). 
I attached a gem and a flower and  rounded the corners of the card and the paper.
