This week is our 2011-2012 Design Team's last week here on the Bella blog. But before saying our final goodbye, we still have a ton of projects from these designers to share with you. Today, it's all about cards!
"Celebrate" card, by Gretchen McElveen.
These Dahlia crochet flowers coordinate perfectly with the new Birthday Girl line! I combined the flowers with papers and stickers from the Birthday Girl line and the Sophisticates miniature card sentiments to make this card. I think it turned out pretty cute! Thanks for looking!

“Happy Day” card, by Kathy Martin.
If you love flowers, buttons and texture like I do, you’re going to love these Bella Blvd Crochet Flowers! For my ‘Happy Day’ card I thought a string of these beautiful Crochet Flowers would make the ideal accent for a happy card.

“Birthday” card, by Kathy Martin.
These bright and colorful Designer Tapes from Bella Blvd make the perfect background for this adorable chipboard Birthday Girl cake, don’t you think? I tried to mimic party streamers by lining up the designer tapes and attaching them to my card vertically.

“Happy Birthday” card, by Kathy Martin.
I’ve always been a huge fan of buttons! They are so versatile, perfect for most any project. I love the Button Market collection from Bella Blvd because of the large variety of shapes, sizes and colors. These buttons work well together and look awesome together as I have them on this card.

"Wish Big" card, by Morgan Bandkowski.
I love using my old scraps of Bella Blvd! I used some old product to make another quick Birthday card.

“Amazing Birthday” card, by Morgan Bandkowski.
I love the new birthday lines. They are perfect for any age, which makes them ideal for card makers! I enjoy using the designer tapes as borders on cards & layouts.

"I Love Summertime", by Wendy Wagner.
The Sunshine & Happiness line is perfect to pair with the Sophisticates Sprinkles & Lace. The polka dots are so fun & cheery! I used a circle punch five times to create a border along the right side. The chipboard creates dimension along with the green & white polka dot border to look like grass.
Sunshine & Happiness: Popsicle Kisses, Borders, Miniatures Stickers, Chipboard Icons; Sophisticates: Sprinkles & Lace Punch, Sprinkles & Lace Ice
"Everyday Moments", by Morgan Bandkowski.
I am really enjoy polka dots & pin dots & wanted to make a card combining them. I decided to cut out the sunflower from the cute cuts sheet and then layered the chipboard sunflower on top of it. It creates great dimension.
Thankful: Perfect Day, Burlap, Our Spot, Cute Cuts, Just Write Journaling Stickers, Chipboard Icons; Designer Tape: Pony Dot
"Turkey Time", by Morgan Bandkowski.
This card is very simple, but I just loved that Turkey and wanted to make a card where he is the focus!
