Some Sweet Gifts

Hello! I'd like to share with you a few cards I've made lately.  This first one was created for a friend of mine.  I wanted something simple and so I chose to use this cut out from a paper sheet with a bunch of great images on it. All I did was layer it over some decorative papers, added some seam binding and ribbon with a pearled crochet flower.  Then I made the inside (below) to compliment the front.

This second card I made for a friend's wedding.  I wanted something simple and not too fussy, with a touch of the wild to it.  So I used some paper from Momenta and created a kinda chair rail with it.  To hide the seam, I added some simple lace.  To add a special touch to the card, I also made the inside to compliment the front. But switched the papers.

Here is a pic of the blanket that I made to go along with the wedding card above.  This couple loves the northern lights so I made them a blanket that reminded me of the dancing lights surrounded by the night sky.  This is the biggest blanket I've ever made and hope it's big enough for them to snuggle under comfortably as they watch the northern lights someday. :)

Thanks for dropping by! Praying you have a lovely day!
