Sharing a project - more cards

Check out the trio of cards I made last night in less than an hour! Woot, woot!

The first card is a birthday card that would work for just about anyone. I used some random patterned paper in my scrap stash, a 3 X 4 PL card, and some K & Company birthday diecuts. Popping up the diecuts really added fun dimension to the card. On the inside, I used an acrylic stamp from Studio G with black StazOn ink.

For this congratulatory card, I also started with scrap patterned paper and a popped up PL card for my title treatment. Isn't this a great way to use the one million PL cards I've collected so far?! Lol. I added a few glittered embellishments on top and on the inside either a diecut sentiment and called it finished. Easy peasy! 

 For the final card, I decided to start with horizontal strips of  scrap patterned paper. I didn't like the seam between the two wider strips, so I added a narrow strip on top to cover that seam. After that, I added some flowers and a title diecut from a coordinating package. I prob wouldn't have used those honking flowers on a layout, so this was a good use of them. To make the diecuts more seamless, I tucked the clipboard one slightly under the flower edges and trimmed the section of flowers that were hanging off the edge a bit. I haven't put any sentiment on the inside of this one yet, so it might just be a plain notecard for someone.

Did you make any cards recently? I'd love to see them if you'd like to share. Happy crafting!
