Christmas Cards with Leftovers

I used the leftover letters from the previous card. I mounted the letters on to pattern paper and then mounted that to a solid color paper and then attached to the card. For the striped card I ran a piece of the striped paper across the card to look like ribbon. I went around the edges of the letters with a glitter pen. The other card I put glitter on the letters. I used Martha Stewart Glitter. I will put ribbon on the one card and they look as though they need something. I will look at the cartridge and find something to put across the top. Until then Enjoy!

Getting a Jump on my Christmas Cards

Here are some Christmas cards that I made. I used the christmas solutions cartridge. I cut the NOEL at 3 inches. I used the shadow cut with the green paper. I cut the frame that was on the shift key. I wanted to get a jump on Christmas cards instead of waiting until December. I used the NOEL letters for another set of cards that I will post later. Enjoy!

No Frills Father's Day Card

This card is for the father that does not like all the frills that can go on a card. Just a basic card. I used the Cricut to cut the background. It is from the Wild Card cartridge, the Argil cut. The wording comes from They have some great freebies and they also have great selection of svg files to buy. Go to their blog to see their freebies. This cut was a freebie cut. I used grey cardstock for the base. I used a pattern paper for the argil cut. I used a white gel pen on the diamonds. I cut the words out of red cardstock and put pop-dots behind the letters to pop them up off the front. Like I said a no frills card. Enjoy!

Good Luck Card

For this card I designed it in inkscape and used SCAL and my cricut to cut it out. It is for someone getting ready to start school for cosmotology. The cut file has the card and also seperate letters to cut out with different paper. I used clipart found in Creating Keepsake software, I cut out the images and used pop-dots on the girl cutting hair. I used yellow stickles on the letters. I will be adding the cut file for the card base and letters later. Enjoy!

Flower Pot Card

I used design studio for this card. The cartridges that I used were George and Basic Shapes, Plantin Schoolbook and Walk in My Garden. Everything was cut from design studio and I even made a stand to attach on the back of the flowerpot so the card will stand-up. As you can see in the pictures the flowers get attached to the card that gets pulled out. I used ink on the edges and a white gel pen for the stitch marks and I wrote the Happy Birthday on the front. Enjoy!
Here is the cut file- flowerpot card.cut

The Bear

Here is a scrapbook page. This bear was in front of my porch walking across the road. I was able to get this picture. I used letters from the computer to make the title. The frame came from PC Crafter Hug Club. I printed the frame and I did the stitch marks around the frame. The buttons were on the frame. The bear cut out was a .svg file from using the Sure Cuts Alot program. I cut it at 4 inches using my cricut. I cut it little big, but I like how it copies the way the real bear is walking. Enjoy!

Bird Thank-You

For this card I used scrapes for the rectangles. The large retangles are 2 inches by 3 inches. The smaller squares are 2 inches by 2 inches. I inked all the edges. The bird is from Storybook Cartridge cut at 2 inches. I put a branch under the bird so it didn't look like it was floating in the air. The branch was cut at 4 inches. I added green stickles to the leaves. I inked the edges of the bird including the wing. The sentiment was stamped using a Studio G stamp. I like these stamps for card. They are the right size. I used a white gel pen at the bottom of the card to give some stitched look. Enjoy!

A Card for a Child

Here is a card that could be used for a little boy's birthday. I used Paper Doll Dress Ups for the rocking horse. It is one of the many extra's on this cart. This is a must have cartridge. I cut the rocking horse at 2.5 inches real dial size. I used three different papers to make him. Tan for the horse, Dark Brown for the tail, mane and rockers and a pattern paper for the saddle. I cut the cowboy hat smaller to fit on the head. I cut a large square to mount the horse on and then cut smaller squares to put across the top and bottom for a border. The squares looked to plain so I used my Studio G stamps to stamp the small images on the squares. The stamps were the perfect size and the stamps were from a boy's collection which is perfect for this card. I did some inking on the edges of the horse and then used a brown pen to do the stitch marks. I also inked all the edges of the squares with a black ink pad. Enjoy!
