This is a birthday card I made for my sister-in-law. For onceI didn't use any Cricut. My youngest daughter picked out the theme and we used a cute die-cut we found at our local scrapbook store. The cute papers are from DCWV Pets Stack. This is also my first ever easel card - wow, was it super easy to do - don't know why I was so afraid to try it! Thanks for looking!

Black, red and white wedding tri-fold card

This is another card made for a coworker using the black, red and white color scheme from the wedding. Not my favorite...wanted it more elegant, but again, I was a little lacking in creativity last week. Will try to do better next time...

Onesie Baby cards

I made these for a coworker - without any preferences other than it had to be 2 girl and 1 boy card, I was free to do what I wanted. I was a little short on energy, creativity and time last week, but I still think these turned out pretty cute.
I used basic white 5 x 6.5 cardstock for the base. Background papers are all from The Paper Studio (so CUTE!!). The onesies were cut from the B is for Boy cartridge - cut at 4.5" for the girls and 5" for the boy card. The monkey on the boy card is from Everday Paper Dolls (cut at 2"), the rattle is from Sugar and Spice (also cut at 2") and the heart is from George and Basic Shapes (again, at 2"). The "Wee One" is from B is for Boy (cut at 1", I think...) and the "Little Princess" is from Sugar and Spice (again, at 1", I think).
Thanks for looking!

Baby shower card

I made this one for a co-worker who is expecting, but not finding out the sex of the baby until he/she is born. I applaud that, but it made it a little more difficult to buy presents! I ended up getting a crib-to-floor light-up piano that had jungle animals on it, and made this card to match.
The animals were all made using Everyday Paper Dolls cut at mostly 3.5" (I can't remember for sure on all of them - MUST start writing this stuff down!).
It seemed to be a big hit at the shower. Thanks for looking!

Second 60th Birthday card

This is the card she chose. I added some "bling" to the big empty spot on the front, but unfortunately forgot to take another picture. Also, I know the diaper on the inside is hideous. I don't have a cartridge with a good diaper. Had to do the best I could with the diaper from the Paper Dolls cartridge. I'll remedy this by buying a new cartridge soon.
All that being said, I love how this turned out. It was my first attempt at a "pop-up card and I think that part worked well. I also have to give big kudos to my friend Trudi who came up with the idea for the sentiment. It got a big chuckle from all the girls at work.
Thanks for looking!

60th Birthday card

One of my co-workers asked me to make a humorous 60th birthday card for her sister. And I had less than 24 hours notice. Now, I can be somewhat witty sometimes, but this one had me stumped. I decided to make 2 and let her choose. This is the one she didn't pick. I paraphrased a quote from George Carlin for the sentiment.
I used 5" x 6.5" basic white cardstock and some paper I had laying around (don't know the maker). For the background, I used the Twinkle Toes cartridge and for the circle shape, I used the Sugar and Spice cartridge. The number 60 was cut from Plantin' Schoolbook. I also used some birthday rub-ons for the balloons and confetti (again, don't know who made it).
Thanks for looking!
