Golf Themed Get Well Card

Hello! I "borrowed" the idea for this Get Well card while browsing in the drug store, greeting cards section. The sentiment is computer generated. The stamped golf bag image is an old one from a garage sale. The inside images are from the Dollar bin at Michael's. You can substitute any golf RS images you have.

I stamped the image on chip board for a more masculine feel to it.

Here is the first opening of the inside of the card. You see a small brown paper bag glued to the inside of the card and folded in half. The golf images are stamped in black dye ink.

Then you unfold the brown paper bag and flip it up to see the whole brown paper bag. It's REALLY a light weight golf bag! Clever, and I wish it was my own idea, but as I say, I "borrowed" this idea from a similar greeting card in a drug store. I purchased a lot of these small brown paper bags from Costco. Now I need to find more ideas on using them.

St. Patrick's Day Cards!

Here are a few St. Patrick's Day Cards. The first is an easel card featuring a charming leprechaun from SPARKLENSPRINKLE where all of their rubber stamps are Made In The USA!

Here are examples of plain card stock turned into "designer paper" by randoming stamping a background.

Here is a simple tea bag fold pattern. A tiny green button brad is in the center.

These Valentine Cards were created using "Happy Heart Day" from Stampin' Up, for the images, Nestie diecuts, Martha Stewart heart border paper punch, and bits of ribbon and craft thread. I hope you all have a Happy Valentine's Day and lots of goodies, too!

Masculine Cards: Get Well and More

It's a rainy day here in Florida! That's OK, because it is not snow, sleet or ice. I do hope the weather where you are, is good or at least improving.

Here are a few cards I made using a retired Stampin' Up Set for the images. The sentiment, "Dog Gone Sick" is from SparkleNSprinkle. The first three are gate fold cards.

Thanks for stopping by. Valentine cards are coming!
