I had some free time Sunday evening and worked on a few cards...
This is a "matchbook" type of card that I'm going to give my BIL. I accidentally printed off too many "Birthday Blessings" from my George and Basic Shapes Cricut cartridge...so I got creative and made another card. The card is a metallic midnight blue folded as a matchbook. The star is cut from the same paper with a white shadow. I used my Xyron repositionable adhesive, so the star can easily pop up to reveal the inside...where I plan to put a Best Buy gift card.
Here's a card that I want to give my neighbor, who is battling cancer. I want her to know that she can bug us any time, if she needs anything. I fell in love with this mushroom stamp that I found at an outlet center, and I try to find a reason to use it any time I can. I am fairly new to stamping, so I just improvised with water color colored pencils, Stickles to add nice bling to the mushrooms, and ribbon across the bottom to match the pink at the bottom of the mushroom tops. The ladybug is cute, isn't she?! :)
The Owl from the Cricut Wild Card cartridge is by far one my favorite cuts!! I love it and how you can customize it. I plan to send this card to a friend who needs some cheering up...I want her to know that I give a "hoot" for her. :)
Thanks for stopping by...Hope you are enjoying spring!
