Birthday Card

Here's a Birthday card I made for a friend.
I used the cricut cart "Teddy Bear Parade" cut at 3.41"h.
Added some stickles to the collar and liquid pearls to the buttons and heat embossed the shoes.
I think it came out really cute.
The balloons and sentiment were done on the silhouette.

Thanksgiving cards

Finally finished my Thanksgiving cards. I used the cricut cart: Stretch your Imagination (turkey cut @ 5.25),embossed the background with a decorative tile folder and made the tags with the silhouette. The card is 9.12"h x 8"w (scored at 4" - 4"w)
This was my original idea......

it was OK, couldn't decide between the dark or the light brown. It needed more though????
SO.......I took the "guts" (extra cuts) and switched them......YES, I like this better!!!! I also have two different colored backgrounds (only because I didn't have enough of the other color..ha ha)

Now for the inside.....urgh......I've got to practice on dressing that up....I was really stumped.
 I made my own buttons (to match the front of the card) and its OK but I don't like it. I used vellum for my sentiment. I don't even like my sentiment. At first I thought it was kind of cute but after reading it a thousand times.... Nope... I  should of come up with something else. Oh, well....next time.

its 2 weeks till Thanksgiving and at least my cards are DONE, I need to make a few Birthday cards.....but I'm working on a  VERY CREATIVE  project I really want to get done so I can share it with you all.....it is SO CREATIVELY CLEVER!!!! suspense...........and No, its not my craftroom....after rearranging it....I liked the look of the set up...but after crafting...Nope, I had to move some things .....which lead to moving more things and now I don't have time to finish....maybe AFTER the holidays..........

Witch's Boots...improved!

The other 50 plain Witch's boots (in previous post) are going to be taken into work Friday and be given to my co-workers (there will be a bag of M&M's in each boot). For my family..well....I decided to dress them up a bit....
Instead of embossing the side panels like the others....hhhhhmmmmm....I de-bossed the side panels and added stickles in the grooves . PRETTY GORGEOUS!!!! if I must say....HA HA HA

 Stickles: Crystal, Silver

Stickles: Stardust, Diamonds

adding the stickles to black cardstock changes the original color but I still like how it came out.

Birthday card

A card I made for my niece. The card is 4" x 9" it will fit into a business size envelope.
I used the cricut cartridge Paper Doll Teen Scene. I used the "hair (no bangs) and body layers" on pg 37 and then I used the bangs from the hair on pg 33 and I used the dress and accessories from pg 39. I love how she came out, she's cut at 6.5". The rest of the card was done on the Silhouette. I LOVE how the two play so well together...he he he
