Easter Card

With tomorrow being Easter, I wanted to share with you an Easter egg shaped card I made.

Card Recipe:

White cardstock
Yellow cardstock
Easter Egg Shape Card by Daniela Angelova #57794

Close up of the flowers:

Yellow cardstock for the flowers
Yellowstone Rhinestones for the centers

This is the inside view of the card:

I will include my sentiment just before I mail this out.  The sentiment will be stamped on the raised white egg side.

This file can be found in the Silhouette Store - Cross with lilies by Sarah Bailey #17099

Cross - Brown cardstock
Lilies - White cardstock
Vine - Green cardstock

I tried to take a closer picture of the lilies to show you the glitter glue that I used in both the leaves and the lilies.

If you should decide to make this card.  Be patient and reduce your spend down to a 2 from a 3.  The vines are very small and I still had to cut it away from the cardstock (only in two small spots).

Thanks for stopping by on this gorgeous Saturday afternoon.

Today I have another fun card to share with you.  For this card, I used two different cricut cartridges:  Fun in the Sun and Graphically Speaking.  This man reminded me of my Father-in-Law.  Just chillin'!!!  So the family decided to send him this card for his birthday last year.  HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

Card Recipe:

Brown Cardstock - 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
Patterned paper (clouds) - 4" x 5 1/4"
Tim Holtz Distress Ink "Tumbled Glass"

Fun In The Sun - Beach Bum.  I personally can't remember what the size was.  However, a lot of inking was done to accent things.

For the clouds, I'm not sure what I used.  However, there are lots of cartridges or SVG files you can use to make your clouds.  I again inked the clouds with Tim Holtz Distress Ink "Tumbled Glass".

The sun was cut at 2.5" using Graphically Speaking on page 28 with the icon blackout key.  I ran blue and white twine around the card before placing the sun on the card.

I wish the weather was as nice as this card.  We are currently receiving "snow".  Yes, I said "snow".  But here in Montana, we can receive snow everyday.  Go figure!!!  Anyhow, have a fantastic day.

Baby Diaper Bag

Today I'm sharing a real quick gift bag for a baby shower.  The pattern paper is from DCWV Nana's Kids.  I chose these colors since it could go for either a boy or girl.  I used #44907 diaper gift bag by Megan Hardy Designs from the Silhouette Store.  I decided to use rhinestones in replace of brads for the buttons on the straps.   

Thanks for stopping by.  Hope everyone has had a wonderful Saturday.

You're A Peach!

Today's card was simple.  You're A Peach!

Card Recipe:

With the help of my gypsy I used Cricut Cartridge Wild Card 2 (Page 53)

White cardstock - Base card @ 5"
Lighter Green cardstock - Stripes @ 5"

Yellow ribbon from Michael's $1 bin.

The phrase was all cut @ 1 1/2".  I used several cardstock (darker green, white, and yellow).  Each piece was layered over each other.  When adhering this to the card I used both my ATG and thicker foam tape.

The Peach was also cut @ 5".  The cardstock colors used were lighter orange, orange, brown and darker green.  I swiss dotted the peach and used the swirl divine folder for the leaf.  I used thin foam tape to adhere it to the card.  

If you have any questions regarding this cut.  Please feel free to leave me a comment and I will get back to you.  If not, please still leave a comment because I really enjoy reading everything everyone has to say.  So with all that said, have a wonderful Friday.
