Friends 'Til the End Cards

Hey all! I got some great mail today...yarn! I'm making little baby cardigans for a couple of friends that are having babies soon but I have to work quickly!

Card-wise, I have two more cards that use the "Friends 'til the End" PTI stamp set, which I love! I didn't make either card as a friend card but rather a sympathy card and a birthday card. The sympathy card is already in the envelope and just needs dropped at the post office. They have completely different color schemes as well, but of course, PTI papers :).

The first card is a sympathy card for my husband's aunt who lost a very close friend. The sympathy sayings combined with the Friends 'til the End set made a very appropriate card. I hate having to send sympathy cards but I'm glad to be able to. I used a Martha Stewart butterfly punch and lattice punch. I also ran strips of pearls along the butterfly's body.


The other card is a cheery birthday card. I grabbed a piece of Lavender Moon, used Versamark, and then embossed the whole sheet with white embossing powder. I had forgotten how much I love to emboss! The punch is from Martha Stewart and I just punched both sides so the ribbon would go down the center. I saw something like that on Jen Caputo's blog...very cool!

Lovely, lovely :-) I especially like the color combo on the card with the bitty dots background. Well done!

These are both so pretty! I just got my goodies last night finally and can't get over how beautifully the flowers in Friends Till the End stamp. They rock!!! I love them stamped in white like that!
