Stampin' Up's card stock vellum is fantastic to print or stamp on. I recently printed some anniversary invitation for my son and his wife and decided to try a similar overlay with the vellum on a thank you card. It looks much better than the picture indicates.
I saw this type card on Dawn's blog (Buggin' Around). She called it a simple gate fold card but I think it is simple yet elegant. Dawn, you have lots of beautiful cards on your blog. Thank you for sharing. I used Stampin' Up paper, scalloped punch and stamp. I cut the flowers with George Basic cartridge on the Cricut.

This birthday card was made for one of my friends. Aimee Grey showed me how to make a flower using SU's 1" circle punch and scalloped punch. I love the flower. Jeanne thanks for encouraging me to create at least one card on my own. The colors I used are cameo coral, gable green, and barely banana. The stem stamp set from SU adds the birthday greeting.
This is a simple but elegant card made for an anniversary party. The embossing was done using the cuttlebug and the ribbon is SU. This design could also be used to congratulate someone on their wedding or anniversary. Thank you Jeanne for your help with this card.

This card is the work of four crafters. My friend Jeannie taught me how to make this window card Christmas. I decided to make an Easter card like this for my grandchildren. My friends Dianne and Sondra also wanted to make these for their grandchildren. Using the rabbit on the ZooBalloo Cricut cartridge, I cut a 3" rabbit and some 1 3/4" grass. The lowerlayer button was used to layer the grass. The windows were cut in the card stock using the George Basics cricut cartridge and the center point button. This was really neat. The basket is 3" and the eggs are 1 1/2" and 3/4". The tag was made using SU's large tag punch and stamped with one of the stamps in the Loads of Love Accessories stamp set. I hope our grandchildren enjoy the cards as much as we enjoyed making them. We made a total of twelve. Stamping with friends is always fun and I have some talented and sweet friends. Thank you all for sharing in the creation of this card. Children, grandchildren and friends are our greatest blessings from God.

Leslie Miller has a beautiful card on her site "Running with Scissors" using the "Time Well Spent" stamp set that SU gave their demonstrators last year. I was excited to make a similar (I hesitate to use that word) one so that I could use the stamp set. I also used the Butterfly of Happiness stamp set for the first time to complete the inside. Thank you Leslie for sharing.

This card was made for my nephew's 11th birthday. The idea came from a card that my friend, Jeannie, has on her blog with this dog. I loved his wagging tail. I used my cricut Paper Pups cartridge for the "Yappy birthday" and "Best in the Yard". The grass was cut with the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge. The tag inside was also cut using this cartridge. It is called an end cap tag and I shadowed it with baseball paper because he is a great baseball player. The best in our yard for sure.
