Demitri's Birthday Card & Mother's Day

I finally took the time to take a pic of my sweetheart Demitri's birthday card and a few other pics . The picture certainly does not do this card justice as it looks much better IRL , even Demitri said so , he loved the card . There is no stamping on this card , I used 2 different cuttlebug embossing folders to add the texture to the main image and the background . The dark brown background paper has flecks of woodchips in it , if you look close you can see them . The main image is a piece of DP that a friend gave me , the side panel was punched with a Martha Stewart punch on both sides and then 13 brown brads added for embellishment , this is my first time using that many brads on a card . Both main image and side panel are attached with pop dots .
Above is the Mother's Day card that my oldest son Dan & his wife Heather and their son Kyler sent me for Mother's Day , almost looks hand made , I think card companies are trying to make their cards look more like hand stamped ones these days . What do you think ?

The flowers in the above pic were given to me by one of my stamping buddies that I stamp with every Tuesday , Thanks Gerri ! How sweet was that , she is such a great friend !
Hope all you Mother's had a wonderful Mother's Day & have a great Monday !

  1. i agree with you about card companies...i have gotten several cards that are home-made looking. which is good for ppl with no ability. i really like dimitri's card, can't believe you didn't use any stamps!! >"<

  2. Yep, agree with the comment re the card comments. They know that there's no comparison between mass produced & handstamped! Very nice card tho. You have a son, who's married?? You don't look old enough to have a grandson!! Obviously the stamping keeps you young.
    Have a great day

  3. I agree with you about card companies {yours is very pretty}. My husbands bday was yesterday I kept looking on the backs of the cards to see the price and I kept saying they paid that for this card lol. Hand made such better quality.
    How sweet of your friend to get you flowers

  5. Demitri's card is cool. That's a lot of brads. I'm a hoarder, not sure I could give up that many in one pop!

  10. you are so right about the card companies... they're trying to master the hand-made look, but they'll never compare! (just my opinion.) I love the masculine card you made... great job!
