Merry Christmas!


I finally wanted to share the last few cards that I had been working on before the holidays. I finished wrapping and baking, finally. I hope you enjoy these new additions that I made.

I really had some fun with my Cricut this time around. I used all my holiday cartridges Christmas Cheer, Speaking of Winter & Joy of the Season. I really liked this snow globe idea so I went with that. I used Stickles glitter to give the appearance of snow. My niece and nephews really liked this card because it represented them.

On this card I kept it simple. I got an SVG file that someone made with these holiday phrases and it was pretty small for this card so I went back and colored in the individual words so that they would stand out. I think this would probably work better in a slightly larger size. I guess it was a lesson learned.

Holiday Cards

With the holidays just around the corner there is plenty of card making to be done. This year I will be sending out some extra special cards that I made in the last couple of weeks. I think it really is a great way to show those special friends how much you care and appreciate them this year.

The first card I designed incorporated a 'winter wonderland' theme that works well for just about anyone. I liked the use of some craft foam snowflakes that I had tucked away in my embellishment box. They add a nice texture to the card and really pop. I also added some Ranger liquid pearl and glitter to the flakes to give them each a special look.

I used some silver wire ribbon so that the bow would stay in place. Using my SCAL software I was able to cut out the lettering and finally I used a gel pen to complete the sentiment. I chose to try a glitter cardstock and a silver metallic to see which I preferred. I actually think that both w…

May the Force be with you!

I can't even begin to think about holiday cards just yet, though I have been working on them like crazy! I have a special birthday card to share with you this post. I consider it a very masterfully created card.

Using my trusty Cricut and my SCAL I created this little beauty. It's for a special birthday boy and I can't wait to see what he thinks!

I looked around the net for an image that I could use and found this Darth Vader image. Since I know how big a fan this guy is of Star Wars I thought that it would be perfect. So using my SCAL software I took what was an alarm clock image and made it into the correct shape. I reshaped the feet myself but it wasn't too hard using Inkscape. I welded together the wording using the Loki Cola font.

I hope you enjoy this one!
