For my friend in LA. Actually, she was my host mother when I first moved to the US as a foreign student. She took care of me like her own daughter… I miss her and Santa Monica! I would move back there any day if I have a chance.
So I just cut out a bunch of circles and embossed with different folders. But the hardest part was to make sure it would look like a cupcake in the end since I was just guessing how it would look like as I glue them from the bottom. Slightly different than what I originally designed, but I think it looks like a cupcake.
I got this tree embossing folder a while ago, but had not had a chance to use it, so I finally decided to use it! I also bought stamp ink long time ago, thinking I could use it to create vintage feel to a card, but never used it. So I tried it out on this card. I am pretty happy with how it looks!
For my friend’s son’s birthday. Well, he is actually my husband’s friend’s son, so I don’t really know what he is into… It is hard to make cards for people I don’t know well, especially kids. But I think I got an inspiration from pinterest.
My friend and her husband managed to buy a house last year and just had a house warming party after 1 year of remodeling. It is very hard to buy a house around here nowadays, so it is a great accomplishment! Their new kitchen looked amazing!
My friend’s son just turned 1! We were going to his birthday party, so I made a card with 1, even though he probably has no clue what it says…
Our niece was turning 21 this year, so even though I usually don’t put a number on a card, I put a number for this one. I already had “happy birthday” tag I bought long time ago, so I wanted to use it. A pink paper under the green is embossed.
So finally, for my husband. He is a surfer and loves octopus, so I often try to find a design with octopus. So when I saw this design in Cricut Design Space, I had to use it! But boy, there are so many layers… 12 layers to be exact. So in the end, it is a very thick and heavy card.
The design is just for a flat card, not a folded one, so I had to add white part to make a folded card…
And for my dad in Japan. Embossing adds so much to the design! I really should use it more often.
And this is for my hubby’s stepfather.
OK, so I have 4 people I have to make Father’s day card for… Father-in-law, my husband’s stepfather, my husband and my dad. This one is for my in-law… I got this cream/natural color paper at an estate sale, so I have a lot! So I am trying to use it…
