Post 5-Valentine's day card

Hello everyone,
This is a very easy, very quick 15min valentine's day card.

I used my current favorite cartridge 'create a critter' and only 3 different bits of card stock to make this.
I cut the background shape at 3 3/4" for both layers and the Phrase at 3 1/4", stuck it all together and embellished with 5 small heart shaped gems. so simple yet so affective.

Past 4-Nice Pad card

Hello everyone,
Here is a new home card I made for my sister-in-law, and its so cute I just had to share it.

Create a critter cart seems to be my favorite at the moment as it is for many others too. It's just such a versatile cartridge. I made this card by cutting the frog out at 3 1/2 inches and the Lilly-pad was cut at 4 1/2 inches. I used googly eyes and two different shades of  blue for the background or though the pic don't show the colours very well. I put a green ribbon across the middle and embellished with a wooded little lady bug. How sweet. I cut the letters 'nice pad' from Don Juan cart using scraps of paper. I put glossy accents on 2 of the letters and that was it. this took me about 40mins and that's only because I'm slow lol. hope you like it as much as i do?

Catch you later

White card base
patterned paper of your choice
3 difference colours of cardstock (I used purple, black and white)
Pink pearlessant card
googley eyes
white gel pen
black ink pad
happy birthday stamp

I cut the birdie banner out at 3 1/2 ", circle at 1 3/4" and the scalloped circle at 2". once this was all stuck together the rest was just matting and layering, oh and i corner rounder the bottom corners. i thought it looked a bit plain so got my white gel pen out and did some stitch lines around the card and then for a extra touch here and there. i stamped happy birthday and glued on the googley eyes. very easy card with a lovely look well worth trying!

Post 2- Get whale soon card

Hello everyone,
Here is a lovely get well card that will put a smile on anyone's face.

Such a cute card and very quick to make.
You will need:
3 different coloured cardstock ( I used white for the card and cut outs, light blue and a slightly darker blue)
blue holographic paper
2 small prima flowers
1 blue baby brad
3 mini creative papercraft mosaic tiles in blue

Cricut cart.- just because cards
Glossy accents

I cut the whale at 5 inches and used the stencil feature key for the phrase and cut it at 2 inches.
I used a pre-cut card which is a standard size, matted the holographic paper on then the blue for basic layering. I punched a holographic strip on the top and bottom and used it for some interest. stuck everything together and embellished with prima flowers and mini mosaic tiles. Finally i put glossy accents on the whale to make it look like its on the water.
