Looking Into The Future

This is for my cousin's fiance who's bridal shower is coming up really soon.  I wanted it to have that "vintage" look yet kinda romantic. I still need to find some kind of sentiment that talks about making the preparations for the wedding... Also, this was my first time making a "Gate Fold" card. Plus, the flowers in the bouquet below the bride, they are handmade.  Those took some time but I am very pleased how they turned out.  I think it all turned out really pretty.  I hope she likes it and appreciates handmade cards.

I used:
Gypsy Font Cartridge
Forever Young Cartridge
Paper Doll Dress Up Cartridge
Potpourri Basket Cartridge
Gray Card stock
DCWV the glitter card stock stack
K & Company Life's Journey Paper
Red Ink
Mustard Glimmer Mist
Recollections Pearl Stickers
Ribbon, lace, and rose button are from my stash

The inside after it is opened.  The sentiment/poem with signature will be on each side.

Thank you so much for looking and stopping by!  I hope you have a wonderful day!

Graduation Tent Fold

I made this card for a cousin of ours who just recently graduated from HS.  I have never made one of these before, but when I saw it, I thought that the top looked perfect for a graduation cap.  So that was the start and inspiration for his card.  I think it turned out pretty well. HERE is the link to the tutorial on how to make this one, which is known as a "Vertical Tent Fold". She also has other tutorials on how to make a Horizontal-tutorial   It is a small sort of card, but perfect for a teenage guy.  Simple without all the fuss. 

I used:
Tag, Bags, Boxes, and More Cartridge
A Child's Year Cartridge
White/black Cardstock
Graduation paper from Hobby Lobby
Tassle from Hobby Lobby
Stamp from Hobby Lobby
Ribbon from my stash

Thank You so much for stopping in and seeing what I have been up to lately!  I hope you are having a terrific day!
