Graduation and Birthday Month

In addition to sewing a lot for my little great niece,  I have another great niece graduating from high school!  Courtney is a young woman who is a triple threat - smart, beautiful and talented!  I made this card to celebrate her graduation.  The easel card is my all time favorite format.  And yes, I made those roses using Heartfelt Creations Vintage Floret stamps and dies.  They are very labor intensive!  But Courtney is worth the effort.

Then there are several birthdays to celebrate this month.  My sister, Charlotte, is another year older!  I made her a pop-up card using the new die from Stampin' Up!  Since we both sew, it is perfect.

And since I am an interior designer, I couldn't resist the temptation to add wallpaper, a chair rail and a window!

Making masculine cards is always a challenge.  These two are for a couple of my "adopted" sons.  This little pinwheel die is so cute, but sooooo hard to put together because it is very small.  However, it is worth the effort.  And I adore this stamp set.

And one more!

  1. Stunning, beautiful, masculine, pick the appropriate adjective for each card, I love them all! What die is the lacy corner on the 2nd card?
