Pierced Star Card

Here’s a fast and easy card you can make for all sorts of occasions! I like it because it works not only for Christmas, but also for a man’s birthday card. For me, it’s very difficult to come up with men’s cards. I always like things fluffy & flowery 🙂 For some reason, guy’s don’t appreciate that so much 🙂

I used the Hot Off the Press Paper Piercing Template and also 3-D star brads, and added a simple greeting at the bottom. That’s it!


Vintage Thankful Card

Well, this card might not be totally vintage with the fresh colors of the paper, but the lace, flowers and jewels remind me of vintag-y things 🙂

This card was so fast to make, it was crazy! Hope you get a chance to look during this busy Thanksgiving season :).

I used Ranger Distress Ink to color the lace in just a few seconds, that’s all the older I had time to make it look lol

Ornamental Iron Cricut Card

This is a card I made using Cricut’s Ornamental Iron 2 cartridge. You could use any type of circular die cut and still get the same feel. Think of maybe a scalloped circle or something similar. If you want holes for your ribbon, simply cut a wide slit on each side of the circle.

The bird is from Inkadinkado’s Mindscapes stamp collection. I also used my favorite embossing powder, Red Dragon. The bright sparkles just make me happy 🙂

Fall Colors Card

This is a fast and easy card that you can adapt to any fall holiday! Try adding a leaf, a turkey or whatever you want to the middle and it will work for Thanksgiving, Thanks, Birthday or about anything 🙂

I used a Cuttlebug Fleur-de-Lis embossing folder for the front, but you can use whatever you have, perhaps Tim Holtz Texture Fades. I matted the embossed paper on copper cardstock and added a copper ribbon. Seriously, maybe 5 minutes for this whole card start to finish!
