In the midst of all of the monogramming and sewing yesterday, I even found time to work on card making....I have so little experience with it, that I went to http://www.cardcreationsbylorraine.blogspot.com/ to watch some videos. I love Lorraines cards and thought I would try to make one of her more simple cards.



I started with the "Cute as a Button" card because I just purchased the Martha Stewart button puch/embosser and I just love it.



I then went further down her blog and saw a pop up birthday card and tried to "CASE" it. I had to deviate from what Lorraine did with a cake because I didn't have one. I tried to put a cupcake in mine, (I cut out two different ones) but both of them stuck out of the bottom of the card when I closed it! LOL What I ended up doing was putting some flowers I had on the inside and it worked out much better. The cards aren't perfect, but I'm still learning and have a long way to go, but overall I am pleased with them!
