I'm going to share multiple cards today. Because I can. And I'm worth it. At least that's what the commercials tell me.

The first card is a card that I made for my husband's birthday. His favorite color is green and it was his golden birthday. The only gold I could find that I already had  were on these patterned papers.

I cut a ton of circles. I mean, a ton. Like, 30 more circles that I didn't use on this that you see here. I had a lot of fun mixing and matching. I adhered each circle to be flush with the base green cardstock, then added more cutouts on top of most of those circles with dimensional adhesive.

I used Glossy Accents on every other dot around the perimeter of the circle. I love Glossy Accents!

Not one of my best cards, but I had fun.

The next card I whipped up quickly to send to someone. No idea who, I made this months ago. It must've been around fall because of the acorn/leafy paper I used.

The last card I really like. I made it for my employer at the temporary agency that hooked me up with this job. I still am employed through the temp agency, but I think the contract runs up in a few weeks. 

I used both labels in the die from Tim Holtz. One I flipped on its side and used it as an anchor for the center one, then embossed my sentiment and inked the edges.

And of course I adhered it with dimensional adhesive. I love that stuff!


  1. A great selection of cards, Tessa! I have left a little award over on my blog for you. :-)

  2. Hi, Tessa. This is a great collection of cards. I really like all those circles on the first one. I have some glossy accents that I've used on glass tiles, but I have never used it on cards. I must give it a try. :) Ann Y.
