here to see Stacy's video. I needed to make a card with somthing that flies on it for a swap so using Stacy's card as inspiration this is what I came up with. I was pleased with the results. Of course the pretty paper and Elizabeth Craft glitter helps too. Thank you Stacy.

Time has been getting away from me lately so quick and easy cards are the way to go. I've been playing with embossing folders and so far I find that Cuttlebug folders work the best for me in my Cuttlebug machine. A friend has that very cute Sizzix Texture Boutique machine that looks like a purse and she has great luck using all embossing folders evern on thin papers like vellum - no breaks or tears. I just might have to make a little investment in one of those for myself.
This card was made for a friend who loves green. I pressed way too much when adding ink and so added a big flower to try and take attention away from all that ink. If there was more time in my day I would have just started over, but have not figured out how to add more time to my day.

Hooray for velvety stickers. Could not resist adding some glitter to the card, but I sure do like these nifty stickers. I made it by taking some double stick tape and placing the stickers on the tape first then adding the glitter. Added the ribbon above and below, used an edge punch and glued a piece of matching paper to the bottom of the card. Quick and easy.

This card was made with some clip art copied on to a transparancy. Art Institute glitter was sprinkled on each area after coloring in glue from a Quickie blue pen. The paper was from DCWV.

When I first learned the technique of making glitter lace I was so excited. Luckily my husband like cards with flowers, lace and glitter. He does not get many "manly cards" from me. This card was made as a sample for a glitter demo. I used Martha Stewart glitter.
