Cards 5 & 6 In Gift Sets

Here are two more cards that I made while on vacation.  (these are also for the gift sets)

With Sympathy is on lavender CS and white embossed.  The stamp is Stampin Up's French Flair.  Sentiment is A Muse, from the Damask Greetings set.





















They are rather simple cards, but perhaps that's best for sympathy cards. the inside has a portion of the swirls & bird and a sentiment.

The next card has an Asian theme, and uses an old beauty from SU! "Oriental Paintings".  Red CS for the base, damask embossed black panel, image heat embossed with gold EP on red, mounted on shimmery gold paper.


I must admit, these two pictures have been giving me fits. This is the third day trying to make this silly little post.  Not sure what the issue was, but I just could not get these two pictures to upload to Blogger.

I haven't quite finished this set yet, still deciding what type of sentiment to add.  Probably a "thinking of you" type.

This makes a total of 60 cards made, 10 sets with 6 each. Not too shabby for a few days off from the office.

Thanks for stopping by and thank you for your comments!  I really enjoy it when you visit this bitty blog (and it keeps my editor happy, ha ha!)
