More Cards..

I joined another Card Swap at Ravelry, for the month of April. (Just Because Greeting Cards Group). So, I thought I would get a head start on making some cards...  I think I am more than covered so far. :P  I actually did this card last, but I finished it first.  It's from the Sept/October 2010 issue of Paper Crafts magazine.  It isn't "exactly" like the one in the magazine, but.. 

Side view to see the "3D~ness" of it. :P


I thought I would post a picture of this card, before the other cards.. (This is an old one btw)  I was trying to copy the ones below, here... But I didn't have the butterfly stamp, or the edger.  (So you can compare :P)  It was so ugly, I don't think I ever posted it on here.  :P  Here are the ones I made today that are closer to what they're supposed to look like:

These are the cards I actually started first, today...  I just wanted to make cards that said "Hello" or "Hi", and I had these in mind.Then while wondering what to do for the "hello" or "hi" part (and the ribbon part); since I didn't have anything for it, I started the other card.  The only other thing I would like to have done differently for these cards is to have had different ribbon. But, I couldn't find any in this lame town.  I did find some on ebay that would work.  Anyway, this card is from a 2008 "Stamp It! cards" magazine. It doesn't really have a month on there; it just says "Display until 08/12/08. So...  Maybe it was a summer issue.  (It's actually a "Happy Birthday" card, too; but...  I did it this way. And I think it would work for any greeting.  "Get Well Soon", or "Thank You", or any saying..)

Very nice cards Tina, they look better than store-bought ones, and of course more special :)
