watercolor gnome trading cards

trading card size (i use these for bookmarks)

just like rose

happy hello anytime

love these colors together!
this is a great "just because" card.

set of 3 w/envelopes: $5

soft background

this is much, much nicer in person.
the background is soft while the foreground is bold.

many occasions

This card reminds me of weddings, but can be for any occasion.
I can also picture it as a sympathy card, get well or even for a birthday.

inspired by: scs lost in the 60's

birthday chick

non traditional grad card

graduation card. the school colors are purple & gold. the flying bird reminded me of graduation (leaving the nest....;)

this card would work for either a boy or girl.

the saying on the lower right hand side says "dreams come a size too big so we can grow into them".

the inside with the tab pulls out for a sentiment similar to "celery sticks" which is also a pocket card.

trees of thanks

this can be either masculine or feminine. trees stamped on naturals white cardstock.
it has a subtle texture to it. not quite as smooth & bright as regular white.
it's one of my favorites to use.

part of the brown is embossed with dots, the upper half is stamped w/leaves.

Bronco Jr.

stitching done around main panel onto cardstock. bronco on dimensionals.
this card is done with the 1" fold to the inside where you can insert cash, game tickets, etc.

jasmin birthday

card was made for a little girl's birthday. the close up shows the detail in the name. letters were embossed and watercolored on the inside and around the outside which gives it an antiqued look.

the front panel has a 1" fold to the inside for insertion of $$$.

this card would work for either a boy or girl.

any part of this could be changed to fit your needs, like the color combination, sentiment, or stamped image inside scalloped circle.

this would be a $4 card.

a little birdie told me...

this sentiment can also read (instead of you're the best):

  • it's time to celebrate!
  • it's your birthday!
  • you're getting married!
  • you're under the weather
  • you got a promotion!
  • about your good news!

girl thank you

part of a set of cards made as a thank you for orders that were placed during a school fundraiser.
set of 5 cards w/envelopes $5

give me the addresses (and sentiments you'd like included) you'd like each of them to go out to and I'll mail them for free!

organic sea shell

this card looks very organic, with the craft base & naturals white paper stamped in Sahara Sand ink. this makes a great 'just because' card but other sentimnets can be substitued.

set of 5 w/envelopes for $5

name frames

name frames for various clients.
chipboard letters with decorative paper with the exception of "Calvin" which have various stamped backgrounds and on dimensionals. the birth announcement from the newspaper was placed in the corner.
