Here are the latest two cards I made.
This sympathy card is an A2 size card (5 1/2 x 4 1/4"). The blue mats are 5 1/4 x 4" and I rounded the corners. The paper is from the Close To My Heart Free To Be Me paper pack that was offered in May. The flower stamp is from Stampin' Up!, which I borrowed from my friend. The sentiments are from the Close To My Heart Words of Comfort stamp set (item # C1524). This stamp set is retiring, so if you are interested in purchasing it, you may do so by visiting my website at http://brendahalstead.ctmh.com/.
This best friend card is also an A2 card (4 1/4 x 5 1/2"). All cardstock is Recollections. The bottom white mat on the front and inside measures 4 1/8 x 5 3/8" and the pink mat measures 4 x 5 1/4. The next layer on the front measures 3 3/4 x 5", and I used the smallest strawberry and stem stamp from The Stamps of Life Club strawberries2stamp stamp set. I then stamped the sentiment and large strawberry and stem from the same The Stamps of Life Club stamp set and used the coordinating die set to cut the large strawberry and stem, as well as the leaf. As you can see, the die cuts and embosses the leaf at the same time. The white mat on the inside of the card measures 3 x 4 1/4", and this sentiment is also from the strawberries2stamp set. All inks used are Close To My Heart.
