Happy Turkey Day Card

This week challenge over at FCCB is using the colors red, orange and brown in a Fall project. And the Cricut Cardz Challenge #95 was to make a Thanksgiving card using the card feature from any cricut cartridge. So for the card I used Damask Decor for the card base (that cart has an awesome card feature!) and the turkey and "gobble gobble" are from Create a Critter (my absolute all time most favorite cartridge ever!) Anyway, enjoy and have an awesome Thanksgiving!!

Thanksgiving Cards

 Thanksgiving has become such a neglected holiday! It seems like everyone goes straight from Halloween to Christmas these days. Well I for one have many many tings to be thankful, like the precious angel sitting on my lap right now as I type this :) and I plan to celebrate Thanksgiving to the fullest! Here is a  Thanksgiving card I made for this year. The card features leaf cuts from the Stretch Your Imagination cartridge (an oldie but goodie) and the rosette was made with a Martha Stewart edge punch and a 2 1/2" x 11" strip of paper folded accordion style every 1/4". Then you just connect the ends, push down the center, and viola: rosette!

Birdie Wedding Card

I am so happy with how this card turned out! I made it for my friends wedding and it also works for the weekly challenge over at FCCB. This week was "for the birds" themed :) Anyway, I used Birthday Bash for the card base cut at 8" (Love that cart, it has some very cute card shapes in it!) and the birds, nest and " Bless this Nest" saying are from the Sweethearts cartridge. The shape behind the saying is a nestabilities die. And I added a veil to the birdie bride with some wired ribbon I had. I pulled the wire out of the bottom and them used the wire at the top to gather it. I know it's kinda hard to see in the picture but the background, leaves and nest are embossed, to add some more texture :) The picture just doesn't do it justice at all! :)

Wow I can't believe it's been a year since I added anything to my blog! I promise I will try to keep it updated better! But a lot has happened this year, like I became a MOM! YAY! (which explains neglecting my blog!) Anyway our little girl is adopted and we have send updates every month to the birth parents so I decided I was only going to send them handmade cards!

  • "Happy Halloween" - 1 3/4"
  • Hello Kitty - 5"
  • pumpkin (front)- 1 1/2"
