Ok, so I'm not a big card-marker...

I know, gasp!  I do make cards but simple ones.  If I have a lot of time to spend on a crafting project, it is usually a scrapbook page!  But I've been putting together a few cards lately to showcase some of the products carries, so I thought I would share them with you.  For this card, the die cut Happy Birthday sentiment was done with a Sizzix sizzlit die and I mounted it on cuts from Spellbinders Nesting Lables Three.  The polka dot paper is from American Crafts Heat Wave line (love that paper!).  I added a few primas and jewels and voila instant birthday card.  Oh, the base of the card is a Bazzil die cut paper folded in half that I had in my stash.  [click any photo to enlarge]
The base of this next card was cut with the Sizzix Bigz XL Card fronts die - love, love, love this die.  The paper is from October Afternoon as is the piggy sticker which I mounted again on Spellbinders Labels Three.  The Thanks sentiment was die cut with an old Quickutz phrase cookie cutter set.
Finally, I used the Tim Holtz for Sizzix Woodgrain embossing folder as a background for this card, rubbing it with some chalk for effect.  The stamp is from the Unity Stamps Sports Squares collection and I colored it with my Copic markers.  Super simple, but this will make a great thank you card for my son to send to his Baseball Coach now that the season has ended.
Thanks so much for checking in today and Happy Crafting!!

Jenn...your cards are beautiful. I like every single one and you did a terrific job on them.
I am the opposite. I like making cards and I lack layout skills :) Not that I am an expert card maker either :P
