World Cardmaking Day (& then some)

Saturday was World Cardmaking Day.. To celebrate, I made 8 cards (and an envelope). 7 are for a card exchange with friends from a chat board, and the 8th (& envelope) are for this week's SOS challenge -black & white + 1 color.

SOS 19 entry
First, challenge card. For this challenge, I used black, shimmer white & rich razzleberry.  I CASE'd my own card for a wedding we're going to next weekend, with just a few changes. The main change was that I switched the silver matting to black, which I spritzed with shimmer to dress it up a bit. I stamped the branch in all black (I never stamp in black, hah), and then used razzleberry & white buttons on some of the blossoms, and razzleberry-esque Stickles in the centre of the others. I used razzleberry DSP for the envelope, and made a razzleberry heart for the envelope closure. Et voilĂ !

card exchange x 7
The other 7 cards are CASEs of this card from Pinterest. Bashful Blue skies instead of kraft, and a funky Unity sentiment for my friends, and there ya go. I do not sew on cards, so I used tombo multi glue to hold buttons on. On one of the cards, I tried filling the button holes with coordinating stickles, but it just looked messy. So I stopped that nonsense.

Unity sketch
There is a Unity WCMD sketch challenge up at SCS that I had wanted to do Saturday, but got to it on Sunday instead. The card uses three different Unity stamps - 2 from Heartstrings & Moonbeams & 1 from Could I be any Cuter? The elephant's googly eye is driving me nuts now, but hte ink is all smudged under it, so it's staying now, dammit ;)

random CAS

Last night I also made this random CAS, just because I felt like it :P It was actually supposed to be another card using the Unity sketch, but I couldn't handle the flower being in the top right corner, so I just put some ribbon on, and I like it. I think I'll glitter up the middle of the flower though - maybe with pink stickles?
