Oldies Part 1

Ok, I just realized that in my last posts I didn't give the supplies I used on my cards. If you have any questions about what I used, please send me a comment. Most of the time I'll know what I used, but you know us old guys, eh? Sometimes we cannot remember ...

Anyhoo, welcome to Oldies Part 1! Some of these cards were made for a swap I belonged to a while ago. Others were made when the "lightbulb" went off in my head. This first card is a simple wedding card. This one was definitely made during my early card making years.This next card was made during one of my "I gotta think outside the box" sessions. One weekend, I challenged myself to make cards I wouldn't normally make. This was one of them. I got the idea from SCS. I think its called a criss cross card. You can easily make this type of card now with the SU Sizzix XL pennant die. Its really simple!Here's a close up of the belly band:This card was made for a challenge we had at work. There are quite a few card makers in my office and although we don't all craft together, one day I decided it might be fun to do a small card swap. The theme was "Gratitude" and this is what I came up with. At Teri's 50 Tags Class, she made a tag using the SU scallop border punch. I decided to use her idea and make the "tag" as an embellishment to my card.

That's it for Oldies Part 1. Stay tuned for Part 2 ...
