Project 32 of 365: Father’s Day Suit June 17, 2010

The other day I was searching all over to find a tutorial on those oh-so-cute shirt and tie cards when I ran across something even better…A tutorial for a card front that looks like a suit.  It is PERFECT for Father’s day!  I made this one for my Father- In-Law (still trying to come up with a card for my dad).

In this card I also incorporated the colors from the Curtain Call Color Challenge Act 34.  (Can you believe that Dusty Durango and Rich Razzleberry look good together??!!)

I think this turned out just perfect.  While my father-in-law dresses nice he is not a “formal” guy, so this more casual card, with the off-beat colors is such a better fit!  I’m really liking this one and I am likely to make more “suit” cards in the future.

Project 21 of 365: Blue Bride June 9, 2010

Isn’t it funny when you sit down and you have a project in mind, and you work, work, and work on it….Then in the end your project is nothing like the one you started making?  Well, that is exactly what happened here.

While I like this card, I was NOT planning on making a wedding card, and I was NOT planning on running the Frilly Lacey border all the way up the card.  So this is truly one of those projects that revealed itself as it went along…Luckily I am happy with the outcome…but it does seem like something is missing, so if anyone has any suggestions on what this card needs for that “finishing touch” please let me know by leaving a comment below.

This card started from the Mojo Monday 142 challenge, and then I also got the colors from the Curtain Call Color Challenge Act 33.  I love combining these two challenges!  They both come out on Monday and it is SOOOOOO much easier to jump in and get a project finished when you already know what colors AND layout you are using.

It is probably a good thing this became a wedding card, as it seems like every week we are getting another wedding invitation, so I will need plenty of wedding cards this year.  Hmmmm, maybe my husband and I should get around to having that Wedding Reception we told everyone we would have when we broke the news that we decided to have a small wedding in Vegas instead of a big wedding at home…
