I will have multiple posts today since I am submitting a few cards for the different card style challenges at the Moxie Fab Blog. I love this special issue because it has helped me to identified my card style. I have been making cards for a few years now and still have not defined my style. Well, I think that this process has help me determine that my dominant style is shabby with a twist of fun & cute. I may be wrong, or my style may develop a little more, but for now I have named my style the "Shabright Style".

Having said that, in the process of naming my own very special style, I made my version of each of the styles shown in the magazine. Here is my version of the fun & cute cards.

The first one is a hybrid one. I design it in Photoshop, resized the paper and the tag and printed it. I made the flower with felt and the base is a Prima flower.

Paper: June 09 digital collection Jessica Sprague
Flower: Hand made
Stamp: PTI Blooming Button Bits (leaves)
Finished size: 3 X 3

For this one I used an acetate piece to make a window in the card front. This way I was able to decorate both the outside and inside of the card.

Here is a close up of the button detail.

Finished size: 3X3
Stamps: PTI Chairished & Spots & Dots
Misc buttons, acetate piece from stamps packaging, hump.
BG Design Paper

Hope you like the results. Have a great day!!
