Last of the Ethnic cards (for now)...

Good afternoon!

I know it looks like I borrowed the pictures from another post, but unfortunately we were hit again with another snow storm. I took these pics this morning! It took about an hour for two of us to shovel our way to the street, but we managed to clear a path. It looks to be over 2 feet. I will worry about the car once it stops snowing. But I was afraid we wouldn't be able to get out the front door if we didn't do something BEFORE the snow stopped. It's working so far...


Now on to the creative stuff... :)
I love to take a design and make multiples of that one design, yet try to make each one unique. That's what I have tried to do here in this last (for now) ethnic card set. I'm ready to move on to something new, and my "card" obligations have been satisfied. I'm pretty satisfied with how these turned out. They are mostly for a gift... (Quote for today is from US Games Systems Daily Quips)

The photos didn't exactly turn out how I envisioned them. Don't you think your cards always look better in person. :)

Quote for today: Never ruin an apology with an excuse.

This is the image both on the inside and the outside of the card. I ordered her years ago on the internet, and have no idea what company she came from. She was unmounted. She came as part of an 8 1/2 X 11 sheet of images. The rest were Native American and Asian. The supplies are at the very bottom. I tried stitching on a sympathy card a while back, and I loved it. It didn't take long, and I like the quality it adds. Look for more stitched cards soon!





Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill, The Paper Co. and DCWV; Patterned paper: DCWV; Specialty paper: Clear acrylic (3M); Rubber Stamp: unknown (unmounted from the internet); Accents: brads from JoAnn's Crafts, Ribbon/ Fiber: Floss (Bazzill and Making Memories various colors), Ink: Stazon on black, Tools: flower punches (EK Success, Stampin Up), Cuttlebug folders, Fiskers border punch, Stitch Templates: (Bazzill, and Oriental Trading)
