Recent Cards

Here are a couple cards I made for challenges on the Message Board at A Cherry On Top.  Message Board members volunteer to host challenges each month.  Some are for random prizes of gift cards to the online store!!

This first one is for a challenge to use fussy cutting.  I'd seen ideas on Pinterest to make a gate fold card like this . . .

I stamped the cake and the circle with the sentiment, then fussy cut them before adding them to my card.  I used lots of papers from We R Memory Keepers Hip Hip Hooray collection.

I got mine at A Cherry On Top online store.  You can find it here

My next card is a multi-fold card, again for a challenge.  I used some Stampin' Up! stamps for this one:

It was kind of tricky using my exacto knife to cut the inside of the window out, but I was glad I did it.  This card was for a dear friend who moved away.  We'll miss her!

Thanks for checking out my blog.  Hope to share more with you soon!

Hello Kitty Shaped Card

Just when I think I'll keep up with my blog again, I get behind again!  Well, today I checked out the blog challenge at Bitten by the Bug 2, and it was a shaped card challenge.  I needed a cutesy little girl birthday card, so I dug out my Hello Kitty Greetings Cricut cartridge.

I used the Card feature, which I haven't done before, so I'm glad I was challenged to finally try it out.  I cut my card out at 6 3/4", because I'm pretty sure I have some 5x7" envelopes.

I was glad to see that the base cut fit right on the front of the card.  You just never know when using a feature for the first time . . .

Supplies used:
Patterned paper--DCWV Kidlet Stack
Cardstock--white, pink, black from CTMH
Glitter paper--The Paper Studio
White gel pen--Sakura Gelly roll
Glue pen--Zig 2 way fine ball roller pen
Cricut cartridge--Hello Kitty Greetings

I'm entering this card in the Bitten By the Bug 2 Shaped Card Challenge.  You can find it here.
