Dakota Card CTMH

It is so hard for me to pick a favorite paper pack from the new Fall/Winter Idea Book. Each time I make something I think this is my favorite! LOL! This card uses the Dakota paper! It has a great western feel to it! Love the weathered barn paper1 This card layout came from the new pattern book Make It From Your Heart (only $7.95!). There is no stamping on it!!! I did use a couple ink pads to distress the stars and the edges. I also pop dotted them and added black brads and a medallion. Super easy! You could add a sentiment towards the bottom if desired! Happy Stamping! Sandee

August SOTM Wedding Card with Artiste Rosette

I had the pleasure of attending a good friend's wedding last night! It was a beautiful wedding in traditional red, white and black! I made this card for them using papers from our Pear and Partridge collection, the August Stamp of the Month and the stamp set 4 My Friend (D1510). I added some of the new black tulle and a rosette I made from the Artiste Cricut Cartridge. This is the same card pattern I used for the last card I posted! As a bonus, I made another card using the same materials turned sideways for my sister's Birthday! Happy Stamping! Sandee
