Yesterday at work, I was asked by 2 fellow co-workers for some cards needed by Friday.  And of course I can't say no lol after all, making my cards is what I live for :)  LOL   so I needed 3 Communion cards (2 girls, 1 boy) and a masculine birthday problem.

I love doing this card for a masculine card.  this stamp set is so versatile.  And you can put just about anything in the bed of the pick up truck!

 I love this technique using the Stampin Up! top note die, and cutting the "scored" edges and making a shadow of a brighter colour.  It really gives it a punch.  The truck and present are water coloured, and the grass and clouds are stamped with ink and a sponge. 

Now for the Communion cards, I had a bit more of a moment with them.  I wasn't sure how formal I wanted to take it, but I think it works.

here are the girl and boy versions.  I made 2 girls, so they're the same.  The cross is made with the Stampin Up! lattice die (a pretty neat technique) and I added the matching ribbon to make the gold embossed area stand out. I like how they came out.
