October 2010 cards

Sometimes it seems the need for various cards is endless these days. Here are 4 cards that I did this week. 2 birthday cards and 2 Halloween cards. With the use of Cuddlebug embossing folders, Spellbinders Nestibilities and Martha Stewart Punches, different effects are possible with different embellishments.

Our grandson, Hayden, took part in the Diamond National World Karate Tournament in Minappolis MN. today and came in 2nd place for his age and class in form. They orginally were going to only watch the events and his instructor convinced our daughter to let him compete. He is so excited, and so are we.  We are so proud of him.  He should be very proud of himself, he has accomplished alot for a 7 year old.

Cuttlebug Embossing folders

I made this card using the triptyph template and then embossed the front flaps with the gate Cuttlebug embossing folder. Cut out and embossed the rectagle piece on the front with a Spellbinders rectangle die, added a Holographic 3D flower and some peel off borders and corners. makes a pretty and unusual shaped card. For the inside I used a text weight star dreams paper  and run it thru the computer to put the verse on it, cut it a little smaller than the original template  and then trimmed it with peel off edges.
