It's Thursday, which means we have a wide variety of amazing cards from our Card Designers to share with you!
"You Make My Days Better" card, by Gretchen McElveen.
I used the 'Love and Marriage' line here to make a general greeting card to send to a friend. I love the soft, pretty colors in this line and there are many pieces in this line that can be used beyond wedding projects!

"Congratulations" card, by Gretchen McElveen.
I did a lot of fussy cutting on this card! I cut out all those flowers and the 'congratulations' sentiment. Then I used a lot of foam adhesive to adhere the different elements to the card to give it all kinds of fun dimension. Thanks for looking!

“Classy and Fabulous” card, by Gretchen McElveen.
I got a little crazy with the flower-cutting here! They are just so fun! I adhered some of them with foam squares to add a little dimension to the card and added some bling to the centers for a little sparkle. Also I punched a bunch of circles and used them to create a scalloped border on either side of the card. Thanks for looking!

“Spend Your Life” card, by Laurie Schmidlin.
I just adore the new Freestyle Sophisticates collection! I couldn't decide which colors to use first, so I chose five of them! After I stitched on the background pieces, I layered on some chipboard, stickers, Designer Tape, and a Pink Flower button!

”Birthday Wishes” card, by Carina Lindholm.
I really like to use banners on my cards, I think they are very festive and fun. On this card I wrapped some string around my card and tied a bow at the left side. And to make my birthday banner I used both chipboard and sticker pieces. I adhered tiny pearls between all the sticker pieces to give the card some glamour.

“Amazing Birthday” card, by Carina Lindholm.
For this card I started off by adhering strips of designers tape to my card base. I then stitch down all the strips using my sewing machine. Then I die cut a doily out of green paper, I adhered a large orange sticker flower and the sentiment label in the centre of the doily. I adhered everything with pop dots to really give this card some dimension.
Birthday Boy: Eat Cake, Just Write Journaling Stickers; Designer Tape: Orange Stripe; Button Market: Orange Stars
“I Only Have Eyes For You” card, by Carina Lindholm.
On this card I wanted to make this glasses cut out the focal point. I made the card in a soft color scheme to really make the hot pink glasses pop off the card. And to really draw your attention to the glasses I adhered a strip of green designers tape right under them.
Kiss Me: Bouquet Kisses, Cute Cuts, Alpha+Bits Sticker; Designer Tape: Pickle Juice Chevron
“So Many Of My Smiles Begin With You” card, by Carina Lindholm.
Bella Blvd has so many great designer tapes, in lots of different colors and patterns. I like to use my tapes to make fun and unique backgrounds on my cards, like I did on this one. In the centre of the card I adhered a sentiment sticker and a scallop border sticker from the “Just write” sticker sheet. I also cut out a flower from the “Cute cuts” sheet. I adhered it to my card using pop dots to give the card more dimension.
Collection: Kiss me: Cute Cuts, Just Write Stickers, Alpha+Bits Stickers; Designer Tape: Piggy Pink Stripe, Gulf Dot
