A Few Simple Cards

Got loads of birthdays and a couple of anniversaries in October and the beginning of November, so had to make a start on a few cards. They are only very simple as the people receiving them, don't really appreciate them - mostly family!!!

This first one was inspired by Sue (ex Paper Paradise)

She was holding a class yesterday and showed me the cards she was using as samples. I fell in love with the 'green' one on her blog, no surprise there then!!! So created something similar. The image on the one I made is a rub on, kindly given to me by Maz, rubbed onto a piece of cork, kindly supplied by Hilda. I love the way the rub on crinkled as I tore the piece of cork off!!

Again very simple, a couple of pieces of paper, joined by a piece of ribbon. A flower, a couple of leaves and a sentiment added

Again a couple of different papers, a piece of sticky lace to cover the join. A couple of skeleton leaves and a paper leaf, 5 small flowers bound together and a bow added to hide the join

I found this car on the internet, printed it 4 times and decoupaged it. It obviously looks flat on the photo, but it's actually come out pretty well

Love the cards especially the car one, I can imagine the depth on this. I also like the pink one with the skeleton leaves and flowers.

Lovely cards Sam, no pink yet though? Glad I inspired you, thought maybe the cards would be too flowery for you lol. Oh and thanks for adding the link to my blog, it's appreciated.

Lovely cards Sam, I have never tried a rub-on on cork - must give it a go - it looks so good.

Excellent - I bet it looks really good IRL - decoupage is hard to show up on a photo.

OH! Didn't realise they were all on one posting - lovely selection - I bet the recipients will be delighted.
