Cards

Sometimes you have to run with it. I realized late last night that I have a class tonight, I was not ready for it. So this morning with a fire lit under me, I set to work getting some new samples made and my class cards done and prepped. I'm holding out on one of them, I am expecting new stamps this afternoon and want to use them to make one of the cards. I got 5 cards done, and 2 cards prepped for 11 in less than 3 hours. I've used the new Manhattan flower embossing folder, even though the catalogue says it's a die, it is not a die, it's just an embossing folder, but a darn cute one at that. Here I sanded the patterned paper so you could see the flowers better.
This is right from SCS, but I can't remember whose card I copied, sorry. I embossed on the cardstock vellum.

For this one, I used the 'wrong' side of the embossed imaged and with lightening speed and a fine tipped glue pen, I filled all the ditches with glue. It didn't matter that the glue was no longer 'blue' and was starting to dry. The ultra fine glitter stuck to it anyway.
A close-up that doesn't do it justice.

Awesome, thanks for the tip!! And btw the cards are fantastic! I really should emboss more, but now that I have it stored so neatly all together in one tote, it would be a shame to mess it up!!

Well our passes were $389 but they include parking and have no blockout dates. I think you have to live in California to buy the annual passes, but Im not positive on that. Also there is a promotion right now to buy 4 days and get 3 free so your friend should check that out before buying anything. I suggest going to disney.com and clicking on the parks link, then choosing disneyland resort. The specials are shown there.
