Cards and more cards

Birthdays and other important dates have been keeping me busy with my card making lately.
This one was a birthday card for a friend. The flower petals were made from scraps from another card. I can't bear to throw any piece away of the paper I buy! These are all from Basic Grey's Urban Couture collection. It is so yummy! The colors and designs beg to be used. I found a scrap store in the area (finally!) that sells lots and lots of it. I scrap-lifted this idea from a design I saw in Creating Keepsakes.

I also made another card that I really liked with the same patterned paper, but forgot to take a picture. Oh, well.

This was for my daddy-O on Father's Day. The card in the pocket pulled out and said something like "You Are: kind, patient, loving, Godly....." This is more paper from Basic Grey. The letters are Making Memories rub-ons.

I'm slowly starting to get a better handle on coming up with an idea for each card. That's what takes the longest! When I give myself a time limit, that seems to work better. It's been such a fun craft to dive into and learn more about.
