Elegant Happy Anniversary Card



I made an anniversary card this week for my aunt and uncle. It was actually their 50th anniversary, so I wanted something a little more sparkly, but not too overdone either. I made the die cut on my cricut, and the “Happy Anniversary” is just a peel-off sticker. The longest thing to make was the die cut, and of course you know that an electronic machine doesn’t take too long to do it’s job :).

Afterwards at the end of the video, I show how I finished the inside…a very easy task. Just grab some elements from the front to put inside, and you will have a completed card in no time! Thanks for stopping by!


Ornamental Iron Handmade Congratulations Card


This week’s card uses a Cricut die cut from Ornamental Iron 2, but you could also use a patterned paper or an embossed paper to achieve a similar design. The background card is 5″ x 5″, and the die cut is a 4″ square. The bottom patterned paper is 4″ x 2″, then I used a strip of another patterned paper, which is approximately 1/2″ x 6″. Besides the paper, I used adhesive pearls and a peel-off greeting. The video below has all the details. Thanks so much for stopping by!

Cricut Cameo Bridal Shower Card

I had a bridal shower to attend this weekend, and had been thinking for a while of making it with an old fashioned Cameo design. The cameo I used is from Cricut’s Heritage cartridge. This cartridge has been getting difficult to find for a decent price, but I recently came across an affordable one on eBay and snatched it up as fast as I could :). I cut it at 4″ on paper from DCWV Luxury Stack. The other papers on the card are also from the same stack.

It’s a bit difficult to see it in the picture, but the card is a light blue design, then a dark blue mat, then another piece of the light blue paper, which I ran through my roller embosser with a Cuttlebug handwriting folder.

On the inside of the card, I used the dark blue paper again, and then a silver piece. The writing was just done in Microsoft Word and then printed onto a thinner paper with a light blue design.  You can follow along with all the details in the video below. Thanks for stopping by!
