Best Wishes (Wedding)

(click image to enlarge)

I made this card for friends of ours who are getting married this weekend. The bride made her own wedding invitations, so I wanted to use some of those elements in the card I made.

I was inspired by the "L & R" theme on the wedding invitation and the colors (red, orange, and yellow). I used my cricut to cut out the circle tag as well as the "L & R." I used an orange eyelet to attach the tag to the card. I stamped the wedding cakes and used yellow ribbon to accent that section of the card.

The inside sentiment says "Best Wishes!"

Happy Birthday

I made this card for a friend from College. I wanted to do something simple- that said Birthday without being too over the top.

I embossed the pink background paper using my Cuttlebug. I cut the "j," oval, and cupcake out using my Cricut. I colored the "sprinkles" on the cupcake using a gel pen and then went over them with iridescent glitter glue. I finished off the card by using a rounded corner punch on the background paper and the card itself.

The inside is blank.

I made this card for my nephew's birthday. He is having a baseball themed party, so I thought it would be nice if the card matched.

I cut ten 1-inch circles out using my Cricut. Then I used a gel pen to draw on the baseball stitching. I used my Cuttlebug to emboss the "Birthday!!" sentiment. I went over the raised lettering with a silver gel pen to help it stand out more.

The inside sentiment reads "Hope your Birthday is a real ball!"

Many Thanks

This is a card I made for my Mother & Father In-Law as a thank you for my birthday gift.

I just purchased a Cuttlebug (which MIL & FIL gave me birthday money for), so I wanted to make sure I used it on this card. I used the Cuttlebug for the little frog in the lower left corner and the white square shapes on the card. I used my Cricut for "Many Thanks" and the black circle behind the frog. I outlined the circle with a silver gel pen to help it stand out more.

The inside of the card is blank.
