Welcome to Cards by Amy K.

I am SO GLAD you stopped by to check out my blog!!! Here I will be posting my current projects for you to see. PLEASE feel free to leave me a comment. I would LOVE to hear what you think about what I'm working on. I have been a scrapbooker/paper crafter since I first caught wind of this wonderful hobby in 2006. I am lucky enough to get to spend my days doing something I love so much and which brings so much joy into my life. I first started scrapbooking as a way to pass the time as I found myself at home alone all day suddenly, now I can't imagine life without it. Too bad I don't get paid for it, then I really would have it all!!!

A birthday card for my cousin, Nicole

I made this card for my cousin, Nicole.  She and I are pretty close and I wanted to make her a special card.  I used a paper line from Websters Pages for the background and then I added some teal trim and a pink pokadot ribbon and then, almost as an after thought, I added a double bow made from black seam binding, The sentiment was a stamp from a Close to my Heart set called Celebration. I used black embossing powder to emboss the sentiment.  I used some perfect pearls spray on the whole card.

This a picture of what the inside of the card looks like.  I've been trying to spend a little more time on the insides of the cards  I've been making lately.  I want to make the inside match the outside as best I can.  for this one I just layered the different colored card stock and layered a cream colored piece on top that I used a martha stewart punch along the bottom on.  I inked all t he edges with Walnut stain distress ink,.  I hope its a card that she enjoys.  Thanks for stopping by to take a look and I'll talk to you again next time with a masculine Birthday card for my Brother.  Hugs.
