Two More 365 Cards


Ah, now I am only one card behind this week I believe.  I hope to get the other done this evening if things are favourable for me.

Day 170 – Vintage Plus Blue


I had fun with this card.  I added my own sentiment onto this elegant graphic I downloaded from Graphics Fairy.   I cut it out using my Silhouette SD.  I painted her skin, hair and hat using watercolour pencils.  I added glitter to the pieces beside her waist. 



I cut the swirl out using my SD – I purchased it today from the Silhouette Store – every week they have a “clearance” bin, so I took advantage.  This machine really can cut out some very intricate stuff so nicely. 



The finishing touches were some pretty white lace topped with a sheer blue ribbon, a tiny tatted ribbon, then embellished with charms, a flower and my own tatted flower. 


Day 175 – Mixed Drinks

Well, I went with the Strawberry/Lemonade theme in my colors and this is how it worked out for me:



The yellow background designer paper is from Mind’s Eye – Quite Contrary, an umbrella theme on the side you can’t see – I think it was called umbrella something.   The happy birthday stamp is from Studio G – Michaels!

I designed my own cutting template – very simple rounded edged size you can fit nicely on the front of a 4.5 by 5.5 portrait 1/4 fold card.  I designed slots for you to run ribbon through, this ribbon is 3/4 inch wide. I will put the template for this in my cutting files tabs up top of my blog, both in png and .studio format so you can make your own! 



I made these little flowers by layering – inked the edges.  The flower shape is my own, I will offer it sometime in the future.  I embellished with a small gold gem.

Off to make 176.  Thanks for visiting. Don’t forget to scoop the templates for this card.


  1. Love your Vintage plus blue...a job well done. I am just learning or trying to learn the watercolor pencils but still have a bit of practising to do.

    Love your take on the mixed drink one....love how your mind can just think up stuff...i tend to get stumped or can't think out side of the box sometimes.

    Sending lots of love
