I Want To Soak Up The Sun!

Cold weather brings a need to look forward to warmer days.  I thought I'd take today to look forward to summer!!  Here is a simple note card to send cheer to a friend or loved one!  Take some white cardstock.  Cut it 1/2 smaller on both sides than a colorful card base. 

 Stamp your large image onto the white cardstock.  Run your stamped image through your embossing machine using your favorite border folder.  Now tape it to your card.  Note that when taping down an embossed piece, you should tape all four sides all the way to the edge, all the way around.  They don't stick as well as a non-embossed piece and you don't want them coming up once they reach their destination!!  Here is another look at the same stamped and embossed white cardstock on a different base.  Have fun!!

Happy New Year!!!!

The New Year is here!!  
I had bought a card kit from Basic Grey a couple of years ago.  The kit used their "June Bug" paper kit.  It is discontinued now.  In that kit was small stamp sets for a variety of holidays.  One of the cards/stamp sets was this Happy New Year card.  The only thing I did differently to the card was to add some Stickles glitter glue to the "fireworks".  It is a cute card.  A little hard to tell from the picture, but the center is a clock pointing to midnight.  

I needed to send out New Year's greetings to my treasured customer's, so I pulled this card out and "Up-cycled" it. This is what I came up with!  Let me know what you think!!
