A Few Cards ...

... to share.
I love how Jennifer used the u-turn symbol as a "u" or in this case, a "you". That Cosmo Cricket paper just begs to be cut up into the little shapes. Jennifer's second card makes use of her embossing machine to add texture to her front. The thin border of patterned paper behind the embossed paper ties into the green doily rub-on.
The adhesive backed Studio Calico rip strip makes quick work of duplicating a pleated ribbon.
My cards aren't as elaborate as Jennifer's.
A strip of patterned paper, a rub-on along the bottom, a thin piece of rip strip between and a chipboard piece are all I added.
And just a quick trim around the edge of the rub-on.
I love the wide trim but it can be overpowering on a small project. I punched old book paper and misted it with Shimmerz.
Sea Monkey on the lower layer, Before Dawn on the middle.
