An Ace of Spades

Hey! Sarah, part of Wendy's CT here!

Since Wendy hasn't had a new release in a bit, I figured I'd take advantage of the amazing stuff she does have, and share some of what others have created with these amazing hybrid projects!!

Square Card

This was from DownThisRoadDesigns. I just love the theme!! Pirates are SO much fun!!

These were done by Evie. She seems to have so much fun playing with hybrid cards, and I don’t know about you, but I just love to see them!

This one by Mara just makes me smile so broadly. It’s so elegant and beautiful and looks so professional! That’s what I love about Wendy’s products! They look so professional!!

2 Birthday Cards

This weekend was my both my stepmom and “stepdaughter’s” birthdays.  I say it in the quotes because she’s my boyfriend’s daughter.  We don’t live together but I love her :)  I made them each a card and thought I’d show them off!  First up is stepdaughter’s:

I used Funky Funk by Marni Designs.  She turned 14 and this kit was perfect for her!

I used a corner punch on just one corner to add some interest to the shape.

The fun button detail:

And a close up of the word art I created with shrunken down elements, 6 different fonts and the alpha from the kit:

For my stepmom, I went with a traditional birthday kit, Make a Wish by FlutterbyeFaery Designs, though I decided to leave off the obvious birthday elements:

(don’t mind the crooked bracket – homemade charm, right?)

And a close up of the layers:

I printed the layers separately and attached them with pop dots.  I forgot to put a sentiment on the circle before I printed, so I grabbed a fine tipped sharpie and tried my best not to screw it up ;)

I realized afterward that I should have included something in the picture to give you size perspective, because the large box is big!  Even the small box is bigger than any other box I have yet!

Large - approx. 5.75" across x 2.25" tall

Medium - approx. 4.5" across x 1.75" tall

Small - approx. 3.75" across x 1.5" tall
