Cards Unveiled!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Thursday! One more day till the three-day weekend!! Can’t wait! Hope everyone has some great plans! Already been invited to a couple cookouts, and can’t believe Notre Dame is starting their football season off in Dublin! Early morning game, means a breakfast party somewhere!!! Go Irish!!

As I promised, a couple more cards that were hidden can now be unveiled.

The first card was a birthday card I made for my brother for his girlfriend Rina. There is no story attached. Just a cute card made with a few scraps and a little help from my Cricut. If you are looking for the flower border it is on the cartridge, Doodlecharms. Cute little cartridge with lots of cute-sy fun things to add to cards.  I used an 8 1/2 by 11 piece of soft green paper cut in half and folded as the base of the card. I then found a piece of pattern scrap paper and used that as the bottom layer. I wanted a layered look so I added another scrap cut to fit over top in a blue that matched fairly close to the blue in the bottom pattern, added happy birthday in white (from the beyond birthdays cartridge), her name (from printing 101 cartridge), and another single flower (from the Doodlecharms cartridge).  I think the result was super cute, fun, and a tad bit sweet!


The second card I kept under wraps was an anniversary card for Joe and Rina. I can not believe they have been together for a year already! I wanted to make the card extra feminine. For some reason I always think of lavender and dark purple, as very girly colors. So I chose that as the base for the card, a dark rich purple. Then I layered a metallic silver over the purple, and a vellum heart scroll to the right side. I had two heart stickers left from a previous project (one pink, one blue), instantly thought (boy, girl) PERFECT! Haha, yes that is really how my brain works. I added a border on the bottom of the card with my Fiskars Heart punch, putting a lavender color behind the border. I finished with a tad bit of white ribbon, with a silver border, to add a sweet little  delicate break! The Happy Anniversary is in a metallic black, and from the Cricut Cartridge, Beyond Birthdays. Inside the card I used the punch again, on some white paper so my brother could do some writing, and the project was complete. I think it turned out totally feminine and a tad bit romantic!






All the plain paper used for these cards are from Recollections. Love their paper, and you can buy it in packs with multiple colors! Right now Michael’s has their multiple fifty pack papers on sale 3 for 10! Check them out!! Enjoy!!
