Bird Nest Box Card

This box card  was for my friend Joan Buttignol in celebration of her 80th birthday. 

It is a box card so it folded flat for mailing but pops up into a box so it can stand by itself.  

Joan loves nature so I thought she would enjoy this card.

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is the St. Patrick’s Day Box card I made for a former Irish pastor. I wish I could see his face when he opens it.

My first grandson was born a month early and the lovely ladies in NICU did such a great job with not only him but with helping my daughter. This was a little thank you for them.

This is a card I made for our new priest. He had an anniversary soon after he joined our parish.

Then I took ink and shaded.  A bit of embellishment and wallah!  A quick and pretty card!

This card was for my niece.  I enjoyed making it for her.  I would be quite easy to do it in school colors.  On the inside I used a picture of her school and the bottom is a pocket to slip a bit of college funding.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

These are cards I made just using the printer and a bit of embossing an edge.

I used the child’s names to make each cross.

These cards were fun to do and not as hard as they look.  They did take a bit of time though.  It was hard to find some of the Easter embellishments that I wanted but I made do.

To the right are some of the cards ready fir mailing. On the back I left space for a hand written note.

This was a card for my mother.

I was trying to send her a card a day.  With the plan of most of the cards being handmade.  I would spend hours on the weekend making cards that I would send during the week.  I always wanted room to write something personal, either boosting her spirits or something about what was happening here.  This was an attempt of a folding card.  I liked the way it turned out and should have made some more similar ones right away so I would remember how everything fit together.
