85th Birthday Card

Floral with Buttons Encouragement Card

This card is related to a previously mentioned conversation with Cousin Pati. The two larger buttons were purchased as crafting accessories. The smallest button came from a blouse I owned back in my Software Engineer/Mathematician days.

The stems were all cut with the same die, and I embossed them with an embossing folder. Then, I trimmed them by hand to make them unique.

This cannot be sent through the mail in a regular envelope.

Long Neck Dinosaur Baby Card

This dinosaur family may be brachiosaurus, but I think of Littlefoot in the animated movie “The Land Before Time” – he was a Long Neck.

One of my cousins just welcomed a new grandbaby, and she requested another dinosaur baby card.  (The original dinosaur baby card is HERE .) I couldn’t make the cards the same…it took me a fair amount of time to have my epiphany.

I blended the sky with a cloud stencil, then built the scene on top of that with my die cut pieces. I struggled with where to place the “new baby” sentiment and finally decided to put it on Soft Sky paper so it blended with the sky.
