Geometric Happy Birthday Handmade 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!


Black & Neutral Handmade Card For A Man


This week, I grabbed an idea from Pinterest and added a few other things to the basic idea. I really struggle making men’s cards sometimes, and this one really seems to work well. I think the Pewter Screw Top Brads add a nice touch :).

Here are the dimensions of the different square panels:

Black card: 8.5″ x 5.5″, folded in half

Gray patterned paper: 4″ x 5.25″

All of the following papers will be matted on black papers. Just cut the black papers slightly larger than the patterned papers.

Striped paper on bottom of the card: 3.75″ x 2.75″

Small striped paper and small beige paper: 2″ x 2.25″

The black circle is 1.5″ and the smaller circle is 1.25″.

Cricut You’re My Anchor Man’s Card


This is a fun and easy Cricut card, but you could easily substitute letter stickers and Google an anchor, print and cut it out for his card. I also used some twine, a white card, a patriotic striped paper and some blue cardstock. I used a permanent glue stick and hot glue to put the card together. See the video below for complete instructions. Thanks so much for stopping by!
