Simple Elegance

I wanted to make a couple cards using my Cuttlebug. I love the simplicity of these, but also so elegant.

The first one is a Thank You card for my BFF (Hi Kari!) for a wonderful girls trip we took a couple weeks ago to Waikiki! Such fun! We decided we would do it every year! (And also to her hubby, what a sweetie, for a wonderful treat of a reflexology treatment! Thanks Pete!) I am also working on a mini book to remember our trip with!

The stamp is from Stampin Up Illuminations, ribbon from Michaels. Cuttlebug folder is D'vine Swirl.

The second one I did for my hubby's boss as a going away card, wishing him Good Luck. He has decided to leave the company for other interests. I will stick a little Stonecold Creamery gift certificate in it! I scanned both these cards, I will try to take pictures next time and see if the detail comes out any better! I also did the embossing on the envelope flap. I saw this on GinaK's blog and loved the idea.

The outline stamp is from GinaK Festive Labels set the sentiment is from Stampin Up Sincere Salutations, bling and ribbon from Michaels, ink Stampin Up Ballet Blue.
