Special Occasion Cards

Our pastor's wife asked me to make some cards for special occasions to be available for the card ministry our church does. Birthday and anniversary cards are sent out to our attendees and their families. There are many people who never get cards from anyone to mark a birthday or any event in their lives.

Here are some of the ones I came up with. Nearly all of the ideas are cased from a Cuttlebug website.

This card is shimmery white. The design is done using the Cuttlebug With Love border folders and ScorPal. Self adhesive flat pearls were added on the flowers.

Very simple - very elegant.

This card is done with the tiny heart embossing folder from Love Language and the long stem flowers from With Love border folder and the ScorPal.

The flower centers are tiny self adhesive nail decorations. The sheer ribbon bows are attached with Zots.

This card was so easy and quick to make that I got carried away and made it in several other colors!

The same rough diamond shape cut around the flower bouquet was placed in different positions on the cards.
Each one is embossed with a different Cuttlebug folder and the ScorPal.

The "Thank you" and "thanks" were embossed using the Thanks small embossing folders.

I really like this card - very simple and can be used for any number of card giving occasions.
The Just My Type embossing folder was used for the dots and the lines are ScorPal!
Small sentiment words can be easily stamped near the bottom of the stems or above the daisies.

I used several different colors of dotted sheer ribbon on the cards.

One of the embossing folders from Fancy Corners was used for this card. It was embossed three times along one side of the card. A fourth one was mounted alone and used as the focal point of this card. The sheer ribbon is lined up along two ScorPal lines. Another plus for this card is that it can be either top fold or side fold.
Hope you enjoyed seeing these cards!
