Pop-Up Butterfly Birthday Card

This card is one I made using a Butterfly Pop-Up Punch. Only part of the shape is actually punched, and the rest stays attached to the paper. If you have an intricate shape, like this butterfly, you will want to use a thinner cardstock or maybe just regular scrapbook paper.

The Corners were made with the Southwest Punch and the Happy Birthday was embossed with Red Dragon Embossing Powder. I also added some jewels to the butterfly bodies.


Cricut Framed Friendship Card

This card is simple and can be made in a variety of ways if you don’t have a Cricut machine. Try pre-cut frames, or you can use other die cut frames such as Spellbinders.

I used gold embossing powder, gold stickles, and gold peel-off stickers for this card. It’s simple & fast!

Smile Pennant Card

I keep seeing pennant cards everywhere, so I thought I would give one a try 🙂 My triangle shapes were just made using a punched square cut in half. That made it super easy since I don’t have a triangle-shaped punch.

I also used adhesive jewels and a Smile stamp (one I got from a markdown rack at a craft store). So it’s a super easy card, but really cute for everyday, birthdays, etc. This would also work for a guy’s card, a major bonus because I always have a hard time coming up with guy’s cards!

Thanks So Much Card

This is a very simple Thank You Card, but the different placement of the greeting with the ribbon woven underneath sets it off quite nicely.

Because I used pearl paper, I also used a solvent ink (StazOn) so it wouldn’t smear on the slick paper. The ribbon is just a generic 1″ satin white ribbon.
