Good Luck Cards
I do love how holidays can inspire the types of cards we make but, as you can see from the designs below, Good Luck Cards can be any color, with any embellishment for anytime of the year. Some occasions that we might want to wish someone luck could be for a job promotion, an upcoming move or change in life like graduation, marriage. There are other events like a friend or family member who has a performance coming up or a presentation at school. Maybe you just want to slip a note of encouragement to your spouse or child as they go off to work or school. Whatever the occasion, you have to admit it is always a nice feeling to get these cards that wish us well and leave us with good thoughts.

Good Luck by Carrie Ferrier
Supplies: Paper: My Mind’s Eye, Prima Marketing, Alphabet Stickers, Brads: Making Memories, Ink: Colorbok, Floss: DMC, Other: ribbon. Tools: Punch: EK Success.
Design Notes: One of my favorite things to do on cards and layouts is to cut out images from pattern papers that have large designs on them. On this card I cut my flowers out from one of the beautiful papers from Prima. Because the flowers are so colorful, I wanted to make my card have a whimsical feel to it, so I placed the flowers on the card in a “floating/flying” way, and then added fun little colored circles at the base of the flowers.
Good Luck by Debby Hughes
Supplies: Paper: Cosmo Cricket, Cardstock, Ribbon: Papertrey Ink, Ink: Versafine (Tsukineko), Other: embroidery thread. Tools: Die Cut/Embossing Machine: Cuttlebug (Provo Craft), Dies: Papertrey Ink, Embossing Folders: Cuttlebug (Provo Craft), Stamps: Waltzingmouse Stamps.
Editors Notes: What really caught my eye with Debby’s card is how successfully she combined colors. They are bold but so pleasing to the eye with the white cardstock and beautiful shades of blue and pink.
