A few Birthday Cards
Since I am so far behind in posting I thought I would share a few birthday cards I have made lately.
All the cards have been made following sketches each week on the Cricut message board
Wednesday's Weekly Sketch Challenge click above for the
link to this weeks challenge. If you have a Cricut we would love for you join in the fun. I can not tell how doing this challenge over the last 4 years how much my card making improved.
The first one, the papers were all printed using my Imagine and the Lori's Garden cartridge. The dragonfly is a sticker I have had for sometime in my stash.
Next is one with a newer technique that I tried. I stmped the wine glass imagine on 3 pieces of paper in descending size then matted them with black paper.
I wanted to give it a vintage type look so I Google vintage paper and found this one.
Pennants seem to be pretty popular to use on card right now, so I strung these pennants cut from Art Philosophy on some twine. I also printed the papers on this one, last week Sassy Designs had a sale on their digital paper packs. They were just 24 cents each, although I do NOT need more papers I could not pass up this bargain. It is nice to have these papers ready to print in whatever size you need, plus they are easier to store. :/.
One last one for right now. Quite some time ago I bought some Washi tape (just had to have it) and rarely used it, so I used it to make the background of this card. I added some flowers I made and a stick pin behind them. Not sure what this card will be used for so will add a sentiment at that time.
Well that is it for now, hope to be back in a couple of weeks and share some more cards I have made. We will be leaving on vacation this weekend so not sure I will get a chance to post before then.
Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you have a wonderful 4th of July with family and friends.
