Cricut Create A Critter Baby Card

Cricut-new-baby-card

I haven’t made a baby card in a while, but decided to use my Cricut Create A Critter cartridge to make this sweet baby card. This card also works great for a young boy’s birthday card too. Now of course you don’t need this actual die cut to make a similar card, just look for an image to print, a stamped image, or a sticker to use in place of the giraffe. I just wanted something thin and tall to fill that space and I cut the giraffe at 4″.

Besides the die cut, I used a white card, brown cardstock, white cardstock, 2 different blue patterned papers, ribbon, brads, and silver letter stickers. Thanks for stopping by!

Geometric Happy Birthday Handmade Card

geometric-happy-birthday-card

The card for this week was one I just made from rectangles and squares. This is a great way to use up scraps! The triangles were cut with a square punch, then cut in half twice, so you don’t really need a punch. I know there are a lot of you out there that appreciate when there’s a card design that doesn’t use any special tools at all. So if you have a way to cut paper, you’re good to go on this one :). I used a rub on for the greeting, but any sort of sticker, stamps, or even handwritten greeting will work. Thanks for stopping by!

Thank You Tags Handmade Card

Thank-you-tags-card

This is a super simple Thank You card that makes use of ribbon and 2 tags for an interesting look. The ribbon is hard to see, but it’s a white background with a silver design printed on it. I actually got it at the Dollar Tree at Christmas time, so keep your eyes open in those sorts of stores for economical supplies that can be used all year.

To make this card extra easy, I used silver Thank You stickers instead of stamping and embossing, and I used a metallic red heart brad for an accent. The small tag is from a McGill punch, and the white tag is a Cricut die cut tag that I cut in half. I believe the cartridge was Accent Essentials. I inked the edges of the tags with Ranger Walnut Stain. Thanks for stopping by!

Silver Butterfly Birthday Card

Silver-Butterfly-Birthday-Card

Sparkles fix everything lol….well anyway, if you have sparkles and add embossed stamping to it, you can’t go wrong. This card was so spectacularly easy! I picked 3 butterfly stamps from 2 different sets (the top 2 are from Inkadinkado’s Gemstone Insects), and even placed them all on the same acrylic block to stamp.

TIP: If you place several stamps from different sets onto an acrylic block, just make sure they are the same height so it stamps evenly.

To make this plain card fancy, I embossed the stamped butterflies in silver, then also used glitter paper and a small length of silver and white ribbon. So easy and fast! Thanks for stopping by!

Father’s Day Vintage Car Handmade Greeting Card

Antique-Car-Card

Father’s Day is coming up quickly, so here’s a fun idea for a card.  I am making some of the die cuts available if you’re interested: Antique Car Die Cut. The car is 2″ tall and the letters are 1 1/2″.

Besides the fun die cuts, I used a dark brown card, striped patterned paper, 3 strips of brown patterned cardstock, 3 gold 1/4″ star brads, and a large postage stamp die cut. This card went together quite fast and easily. Hope you enjoy it. Thanks for stopping by!
