Sending some love overseas

A handmade card, the base was made a couple of weeks ago, for my niece. Can you see the little embossed dots on the card! It is so lovely!! With this handmade card I send some love overseas:-))
I just could not decide which image to lay on the card. Then I saw stickers laying on my desk. I do not like stickers on greeting cards and I seldom use them for these cards. But the stickers I am talking about are especially for card making or scrapbooking. There was also a small one with a greeting, very cute. That's how I had the card in my mind, with these two 3-D stickers. Check the card out:-)

Isn't the picture very clear? At least better than my other pics on the blog! My youngest daughter took this picture for me and I am very happy with the Nikon camera, although I haven't play really with it yet. Love how the pictures come out and it really puts me to go out and take some nice pictures. It is something I did a lot in the past using my Nikon F55 which is not a digital camera. Still as new and still making awesome photo's.

In the past I did not mat my cardstock or patterned paper a lot, because most of the time I eye balled bad and after matting and looking at my greeting card I could see it was not matted perfectly. Sometimes I would be very disappointed:(( The industry helps us a lot and there is always a solution for problems, right? Well, I found my solution in the Perfect Layers Border Tool. You can see on both greeting cards that the papers are nicely layered. A relieve for me☺ and I enjoy making cards more, yayyy!!

I wanted to make a greeting card with multiple layers. A success I think, but I also wanted to use more embellishment to make a 'heavier' card. I stopped, because I went blank and didn't know what to add to the card. Yes, yes I have a lot of embellishment, it's just ... which ... what ... I will continue and finish the card .... guess I have to look for my mojo first, hehehe☺ Enjoy your Sunday!
