Cards to Make People Smile!

Hi! Lynne here with some happy cards inspired by the Valentine-themed pieces in my latest goody box from Gina, as well as some of the other great items.

I love painting my chipboard, then stamping and heat-embossing it for  an ornate effect, like I did on the clock and large heart here:

For this one, I trimmed a birdhouse piece to become the jail cell (my friend and I call each other our partner in crime!) and added the lovely heart flourish piece as well:

This card is for a bird-lover's birthday, so the cage and the bird on the branch were perfect accents! I first dry-embossed the birdcage. I then covered it with crackle finish before heat embossing it. Texture paste was applied to the branch before I heat embossed that piece:

I placed the inside sentiments next to the cards to give you a better idea of the finished items (and the first two really wouldn't have made much sense without them!)

Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a wonderfully creative week!
