These cards are not available, they were all entered into the House of Cards exhibit in 2005 



ATC Earthy To Glitzy:  I layered a piece of cardstock with double sided tape and placed my pieces of fiber creating swirls and contours. I glued on some holeless gold beads and a pearlized button for accents. I also attached some metallic fiber strands. I put a double row of machine stitching and then wrapped the edges with a ribbon border.

With Understanding #1: Prior to painting the paper I rubber stamped some butterflies and flowers using clear embossing powder. Then did above instructions.  I added the words Fly with me in gold embossing powder.

Each Flower: I thermal embossed using a flower stamp with white embossing powder. "Just living is not enough, one must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower" Hans Christian Anderson. done with black embossing powder.

All the Flowers #1: I thermal embossed using a flower stamp with white embossing powder. "The flower that follows the sun, does so even on a cloudy day." Robert Leighton in copper embossing powder.

ATC Life's A Puzzle: I used hand decorated tissue paper textured paper. I cut it into strips which I adhered to a piece of cardstock which was then cut into strips again. I adhered them in a bargello pattern on cardstock. I  used funky rubber stamp lettering and embossed it. I attached a decorated puzzle piece. ATC IndianProverb: Using a piece of white sculpey I impressed a rubber stamp (Prairie Rubber Stamp) of flowers into it. Baked it. Painted the flower area and sanded that slightly, then painted the background. I glued it to a piece of mat board which I painted a matching color. I put several coats of clear embossing powder. The quote was r=written on a piece of vellum and attached to the card with embossing powder.
