Carla called her card “a glimpse of a geisha slipping into a teahouse” – OxfordLanguage
We love how you combined all of these elements into one wonderful card!

Victoria said, “I finally had a chance to try my handle at a tunnel card. I took inspiration from a card Anna showcased when the Feather papers first came out a few years back.”
This is just beautiful, Victoria!
Jane wrote, “What started as a birthday card ended up a major project. This is for my 1st born daughter. Started with the concertina dies and combined the fancy french frames and the new clock dies. Never planned to take it this extreme but it’s a great keepsake. I’m sure she will treasure forever.”
Dorothy wrote, “Love these Card Toppers I think they are the best ones yet. I promised a friend that I would make her a bunch of Birthday Cards I used these toppers to make 4 of the cards in no time at all. Everyone needs these in their Craft Stash.”
Carri shared, “I was fortunate enough to pick up the Giant Happy Birthday Box card kit during one of Anna’s special sales. Opening the box was a little overwhelming with so many embellishments to choose from, super thankful for the idea sheet. I’ve completed about 36 cards so far with the plan to gift this completed box to my mom for her birthday. This will be the largest gift of cards I’ve ever given her. I know she will appreciate this beautiful box full of AG cards.”
Terry said, “First card made with the gorgeous Heirloom Lace Papercrafting kit. I tried adding flowers here & there, but when I did, I thought it detracted from the prettiness of the paper. Love it as is.”
Julie said, “Tired of all green, wanted to use some less common colors.”
Maritza posted, “This is my 3rd time trying to post. I’m new to finishing school and look forward to sharing and learning from you all.”
Jennifer said, “When I saw the clock dies, I knew this was the card I wanted to make. This is my interpretation of my cuckoo clock I bought while I was in the Air Force stationed in Germany. I felt a little outside of my comfort zone when I started making the card b/c it is not as feminine and floral as most of my Anna Griffin cards are. However, in using the brown matte foil for the 1st time, I couldn’t believe how much I loved it. It is another level of gorgeous and I feel it really made my other elements all work together.”
Sharon wrote, “I absolutely love Anna’s new Salon Nouveau paper kit! The patterns are so beautiful and versatile. I was challenged by Anna in the FS tutorial to do some fussy cutting of the image and will do more of that in the future!”
Robin said, “I had a completely different vision for this card. But my Lillian papers were scattered all over the table when I inadvertently dumped my elements and they landed on this paper. It really spoke to me and I thought really made the card pop. Decision made.”
Terry posted, “I love this die set. Easy to make. I’d love to see a tutorial with any tricks for decorating the inside. A second photo, below, shows the side view and interior.”
Laura said, “Good afternoon my Sunday Share friends. When I find a diecut I really love, it becomes a favorite of mine and I use it alot in various different ways and styles. I cut the Slimline Fanciful Die in half and made it the focal point on front of one Anna’s Foil Impressions card 5 x 7 background.”
Tom shared, “I bought the carriage easel card when it debuted, but had never used it, this was definitely out of my comfort zone. Seven years ago, I made my first and only scrapbook page to date, to commemorate her third birthday– well, Ella is now 10!”
Superb card, Tom! Happy 10th birthday, Ella!
Penny said, “A friend asked me for some angel/fairy cards with no sentiment to use as notecards. Here is one of them. I’m in love with the ribbon edge dies!”
Elaine shared, “Beautiful Heirloom Lace card and Papercrafting Kit! I made this Easter card for Sunday Share.”
Donna posted “Today I used the Heirloom Lace Paper-crafting Kit to create this card for my friend. The papers from this kit are so lush and I’m hoping we will be able to purchase more of our favorites on Anna’s website! I also incorporated embellishments from the Favorite Tea Embellishments! I’m also loving this new Birthday Die.”
What a wonderful card! The embellishments and details really take the cake!
Tina said, “These two cards were made from the Concertina Dies. I love how you can make everything start to finish with one die set! They make such beautiful cards! Thank you Anna for such a wonderful set.”
Vera posted, “This is my Sunday’s work from my new lace kit cards box.”
Tammy shared, “I need to get this heirloom lace paper crafting kit. I have the square cards finishing school kit but I love the 5×7 size best. Here’s a card I made past couple days with some this-n-that Anna stuff from various kits.”
