Top Ten cards in 2012

Here are my top 10 cards I made this year.  All but 3 were for OWH.

The first one (Praise God) was made for the nursing staff at Mt. Carmel Hospital when my father-in-law had his open heart surgery.









 The wedding card was made for my friend's son and daughter-in-law who got married this year. And this deer one was my son's b-day card.
Have a blessed 2013...and keep your heart open to change someone's life.  Susan

The bride & groom card is fab; wish I'd had that in July when my son got married! The deer card you made for your son is a stunning masculine card! Keep it going in 2013! Happy New Year!

  16. Thanks for all the great comments.

    The wedding card...start with white cardstock for the base. Emboss a small white block (about 1" square), set aside.

    Cut the dress out but use scrap paper so you get the right fit before using cardstock. I then embossed the top and bottom. I also used glimmer mist on the dress Use a piece of ribbon, tulle or fabric for the waist and button or bling.

    For the tux, I used textured black cardstock so it looked more like a suit. And it the same size as the front of the card. I cut a slit for the opening and folded back the lapels. Slip the 1” white square and glue down. The buttons are black pearls. The buttonaire is a small piece of paper twisted and rolled. The bow tie is a small piece of black ribbon knotted.
