Becky’s Cards

My girlfriend Becky, who lives in Charlottesville, Va., has sent me a couple of cards this year that I just loved. I thought they were so beautiful. In fact, I thought they were so beautiful that she BOUGHT them. Guess what? SHE MADE THEM. Here’s a couple of pictures:

Pressed Flower Card

Isn’t this pretty? It was made with real wildflower, or dried flowers of some kind, and they were somehow adhered to the white panel, then mounted on the green and the red panel, and then mounted on the card. Really beautiful – and I don’t know how she did it.

Then came this card:

Lady Card

Isn’t this pretty? And it was three-dimensional, one of my favorite things to do with cards. I think it really makes them pop. I think this was done with rubber stamps and decorative scissors, but again, I am not sure.

Listen, Becky, I know you read this blog. Will you please leave a comment here and tell us how you made these – did you design them yourself, copy a picture in a magazine or did you take a class? If you took a class, tell us where so other folks can sign up, too, if they’re in your area.

    The beautiful flowers on the first card were made my a local artist, it was a case of reduce, reuse, recycle. The second card is a combination of stamping and scrap book material I had around the house. I’m glad you liked the cards, they are nothing like the very pretty cards you make.

    Rebecca Grace, do not make me bitchslap you from across the United States. I’ll do it, you know. They were so gorgeous I assumed they were purchased. Lovely! Send me more!

    These are awesome cards Becky. Y’all have such skills. I can’t do anything like that. All I can do is argue with people, have good hair, hit on inappropriate-age women, and come up with snarky zingers. Basically I could be a southern Governor.
