Monday Monday

Happy Monday! Today was a warm and beautiful day in Connecticut. I think we are going to wind up skipping spring, though and going right into summer.

Today I want to share a few cards that I have created but have never shared here. I need to be a better blogger!!

Birthday cards seem to be my theme as of late. Not sure why because as every one of my relatives will tell you, I am the WORST at sending them out on time. Um, as I am writing this, I believe that I need to send a card out to my niece! Anyway, here are two cards I created using the same die.

I chose to do this in green so it could be more masculine in nature. This die is from Taylored Expressions and I ADORE it. It can be used in so many ways. I also used a stamp from Technique Tuesday for the sentiment. Like I said, I miss a ton of birthdays so belated cards are a must for my stash!!

For my second card, I used the same Taylored Expressions die but went in a whole different direction.

I chose to make a shaker card for this one, using gold and silver with white and black as accents. This card is relatively flat and I made a pocket to hold the sequins rather then use foam.

This might not be everyones cup of tea but it was SO FUN to create. The first shaker card that I have been proud of. Usually I just want to throw them away.

The happy die cut is a Mama Elephant die and it is my new favorite. I also had a blast using patterned acetate by We R Memory keepers. Isn't this an elegant and festive card?

Well, I thank you for stopping by tonight. Have a great Tuesday!!
