I made this card for my daughter’s 8th birthday party last week. The base of the card is 5.5 in x 5.5 in, kraft colored cardstock. The second layer is white cardstock cut at 5.25 in x 5.25 in. The third layer is cut at 5 in x 5 in. I embossed the blue cardstock (third layer), with my Cuttlebug embossing template. I cut the green paper on the bottom half of the card at 2 in x 5 in and used a border punch by Martha Stewart Crafts. I cut the monkey at 3 in, using my Cricut and the Create a Critter cartridge. The vine is also cut from the same cartridge in green cardstock. I stamped Party on cardstock and adhered to the top left corner. I finished with a pink ribbon tied at the bottom half of the card.
This card was for my grandmother’s birthday a few weeks ago. I used a cream colored cardstock for the base, which I cut out using my Cricut and the Accent Essentials cartridge at 4.5 in. The second layer is paper by DCWV. I cut the second layer a half an inch smaller than the base. I cut out one of the butterflies from the paper and folded the wings back a little to give dimension. I also used a few little pearls from Making Memories and added them to the butterfly. I finished off by cutting out a title and adhering it to the top left corner and added some pretty blue ribbon across the lower half of the card.
Cat Card September 1, 2010
Did I already say that I love Halloween? I love it! Cute stuff. This card is another 5.5 in x 5.5 in size. The base card is 5.5 in x 11 in, folded in half. I used purple cardstock for the base and white for the second layer. I used an Inkadoo cat stamp in the middle and colored it in with purple colored pencil. I punched out 3 different sizes of circles in a lavender, purple, and green cardstock. To get the circles perfect, I used a circle template cut out at different sizes and made pencil marks around the edges so that I could glue the dots at an equal distance apart. It’s not perfect, but it’s close enough. To finish it off I used purple Stickles around the edges and in one layer of the dots.
