Gears birthday card

My brother has a birthday this week and this card is sure to be one he likes.  He's always tinkering with something or building things so the gear card is perfect for him.  I used the Artiste Cricut cartridge to cut the white insert and Jackson paper for the outer part of the card.  Then cut gears as a fun accent and used sponge daubers to add a little more texture.  The Holiday Tag set matched nicely for the greeting.

Main supplies used:

Butterfly Birthday Card

Butterfly Birthday Card
We made this card at a home gathering and it was just in time for my sister-in-law's birthday!  This is a fun and easy card to make.  I was inspired to create a square card when the White Daisy envelopes were placed in the "while supplies last" category at a reduced price of just $6.95 for 50 envelopes.

  • Grab a square 4.5" White Daisy envelope
  • Using the card option on page 46 of the Artiste Cricut Cartridge, cut a 4.5" base with the Glacier cardstock and the bellyband with Blossom paper
  • Cut a piece of White Daisy to 1.75" x 2.5" and Sorbet to 2" x 2.75"
  • Use the broad tip of the ShinHan markers to shade the White Daisy paper piece.  I used pastel peach, pastel green and light orange
  • Your pieces should look like this now:

Pre-assembly items
  • Using the "Your Kind of Wonderful - D1627" set, stamp the butterfly image with black archival ink and the birthday greeting around the edge of the base in Lagoon ink.

Mini summer card - Enjoy the Little Things

The DeForest Scrappers group is meeting tomorrow to make summer themed cards for the local Meals on Wheels program.  We make 3x3 cards from scraps we have on hand.  This month, I thought it would be appropriate to work with retired products since Close To My Heart recently announced their retiring products. (You can check them out on my website to see if one of your favorites is retiring.)

These cards use Lollydoodle paper and a Hostess set from the past, these are quick and easy cards to brighten someone's day.

Thank you card kit

Z2063 Thank you card kit

I was putting together the cards from the Thank You Card Kit and remembered that I needed a graduation card as well....problem solved, the supplies from the card kit worked out nicely.  Then since I was on a roll with doing something a little different, I decided to mix up the remainder of the cards for some variety, they turned out so cute!
