It's all about cards here on the Bella blog today. I happen to come across all of these cards in my files that we hadn't gotten around to sharing yet. It's a shame they were just waiting around, considering how cute they all are!
"Mine 2 Love" card, by Gretchen McElveen.
I would like to pat myself on the back for using 3 different Bella Blvd lines with the crochet flowers on this card! Yep! I used a little paper from the "Kiss Me" line, stickers from "Engaged at Last", and the background paper is from the "Sand and Surf" line. Go me! Thanks for looking!

"Love" card, by Gretchen McElveen.
Shame on me for not realizing how well the poppy crochet flowers go with the "Kiss Me" line! The pink in the flowers matches perfectly with the pinks in the "Kiss Me" line. I love that! Thanks for looking!

"You're My Fave" card, by Jenny Evans.
I knew immediately that I wanted to do an all red and pink card when I opened my Crochet Flower packs. I went straight to the Kiss Me collection and pulled out the Flutter and Cute Cuts papers. I accented with some of the new Designer Tapes from the 12mm Combo Pack. A great card to have on hand.

“Congrats” card, by Carina Lindholm.
On this card I have mixed the pink and blue papers from the Kiss me collection with the grey paper from the Sophisticates collection, I really love the color combination. I punched out a few stars in all the different papers and adhered then to my card mixing them with white star buttons. The grey stars are adhered using foam adhesive to make them pop of the card.

“Celebrate card”, by Carina Lindholm.
I went a little crazy with my butterfly punch when I was making this card. I punched out butterflies in different colors and sizes, using papers from the Birthday Boy collection. And then I adhered them all over my card. And to make my card just a tad more festive, I adhered a gold pearl on all the butterflies.

“Eat Cake” card, by Kathy Martin.
This card was an experiment in mixing tags of different sizes and zigzag stitching. I like the way the tags are arranged together and thought small accents like Bella Blvd’s Flags, a button and sticker would complement them well.
