Jessica's Special Order

I really LOVE to create for others...especially when they make it so easy!
My newest friend Jessica asked for a few cards
and gave me a few directions...

1 Father's Day card for a Dad who loves fish:
For this card I used October Afternoon paper and MFT die-namics
Fishtail Banner.  I added my favorite twine from The Twinery,
inked the edges with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain distress ink
and the shiny gold fish was from a pile of crafty leftovers a friend gave me.

1 birthday card for a Mom who loves pansies:
For this card I used my co-brand Bella Blvd + Unity Stamps Bella Fiori
I colored the flowers and leaves and cut them out
and paper pieced back onto the card
That might be crazy but I don't like how the markers bleed through.
I finished the flowers with three yellow buttons and again some more twine.

She also ordered 5 mini cards...
I might show those later this week.
Hope like 'em Jessica!!!

Love both cards, Erin, especially that last one. You can easily fix the bleeding problem by ordering 120lb pure luxury white cardstock from Gina K Designs! It's so thick and lovely for Copics that you'll never go back to anything after you've tried it!! It's the only white cardstock I use. ;)
