Male Birthday Card

Hi all,

Today is my husband’s birthday.  I find male birthday cards hard to make.  I guess I just love frilly things.   I used  paper from a  6×6 pack I purchased at AC Moore.  The cake is a cut and print using my Cameo.  I welded the 64 to the top of the cake.  I also used the paint feature to color the candles to match the cake.  The inside is also a file from the silhouette on-line store. I added some glitter with the Wink of Stella pens. birthday cake20141113_083203 front cake20141113_082954 close up cake20141113_083037 inside bday card20141113_083126

Shaped Birthday Card

Hi all,

Today I made a shaped birthday card using LD Birthday Fishes file.  I brought the image of the Octopus to the Cameo mat.  Then I made 2 offsets to get the layers for the image  to sit on.  I duplicated the image and moved to the side.  Then I created a box for the image to be welded to.  Once that was done, I mirrored the image to the left and welded the two shapes to form the card.  I used the cut and print feature to create the water with the sentiment.  I  separated the duplicated image ( saved from above) and cut each layer out. I then cut all the layers out and assembled the card.  I was able to match the colors for the layers by using the eyedropper and color bucket in the silhouette.

Square1Printable Rainbow Dash Shirt

Hi all,

I finished my granddaughter’s Rainbow Dash Shirt for her birthday.  I used the Square1 printable material.  I love Square1.  I designed the shirt with my Cameo using the Designer Edition.  I then colored the shapes in using the paint bucket.  I sized the image to 71/2 and printed it out–using registration marks.  Make sure you print on the fabric side-shiny side goes down on the mat.  I then cut it out with my Cameo.  I used the settings for cotton fabric, blade 5 and double cut.  All I had to do then was iron it onto the shirt.  You can find out more about Square1 here http://shop.square1masterpiece.com/?Click=657    Square1 is a safe alternative to vinyl.   I can’t wait to give my granddaughter the shirt.Rainbow Dash shirt2014-06-03 20.06.54

Castle Box Card

Hi all,

Today I made a Castle Box Card for my granddaughter’s birthday.  The file is from SVGCuts.  You can find it at SVGCuts.com.  It was fairly easy to put together.  I cut all the pieces with my Cameo.

I also added vellum behind the windows and door.  The jewels and little flowers were from my stash.  I often cut out extra little pieces to keep on hand.  I am also making her a My Little Pony Rainbow Dash shirt (her favorite pony)  and will share that later.   Castle front2014-06-02 19.30.06

Square1 Printable Iron On

Hi all,

 I made these cute shirts for my grandchildren using Square1 Printable Iron On.  I love the Square1 products. You can find out more about it here http://shop.square1masterpiece.com/?Click=657 .  I designed the images using the Sillhouette DE and the print and cut feature of my Cameo.  I washed the shirts first and ironed them.  Then I printed my design, using my home printer,  cut them out with my Cameo and then ironed  the images onto the shirts.  It is that easy.  The heat of the iron sets the ink.  They are washable and can be put in dryer on low heat.

Princess Pop-Up Castle Birthday Card

Hi all,

I just love some of the pop-up cards in the Silhouette-on-line store.  I used the 3d castle pop-up card by Lori Whitlock Design ID #39780 along with LD Happily Ever After files to create this Princess Pop-Up Castle Birthday Card.

 

 

Princess pop up card inside Princess pop up front  It was very easy to put together.  The Pop-Up file cuts a perfect A2 size card.  I used the Silhouette Cameo print and cut feature for the card front.  Of course I added some bling on her ears and gloves.  The paper was from my stash but I think I got it at Michael’s.

Hope you all have a great day!

Waterfall Birthday Card

Hi all,

Here is a card I made for my daughter-in-laws birthday.   The waterfall birthday card is from the Silhouette store Design ID #42692.  It is a Lori 2014-03-10 15.14.10Whitlock design.  I watched her video to learn how to put it together.  It was very easy to follow.  2014-03-10 15.14.332014-03-10 15.14.552014-03-10 15.14.102014-03-10 15.15.09

Once you download your pictures, you can add them to the shape in the Silhouette DE studio.  You place the pic behind the shape and select crop.  The pic then becomes the size of the shape.  I added the pics to the pink squares and assembled the card as per the instructions on the video.  I attached gold star brads and a little handle.  The pics cascade down when the handle is pulled.

I really like the way this came out and it makes a birthday card very personalized and special.

My daughter-in-law loved it.

 

 

Disney Box in a Card

Hi all.

20140219_180148 20140219_180200 20140219_180234 20140219_180255Today I made my first Box in a Card.  I used the Disney Mickey and Friends Cricut Cart.  I followed the design that Cara Miller posted for the box on her Let’s Learn Cricut Facebook page.  It is a closed group but if you are interested let me know so I can get you added. She provided the CCR file for the box and I was able to figure out the size of the images I wanted to add.  I cut most of the images at 2.5 inches. When it is closed it folds flat so you can put it in an envelope.  It was a lot of work but I made it for my grandson’s first birthday next week and he is worth all the effort!

I am also going to enter this in CARDZTV   3d birthday challenge.  I hope you all have a great day.

Fun Birthday Card for Male

Hi all,

I don’t know about you but I find it very hard to make a card for a male.  My brother-in-law’s birthday is coming up and I decided to make this Fun Birthday Card for him.  I used the SVG Cutting File’s Santa’s Helper – FARRAH #PP-1025 and their Fold Over Card Base Essentials #PP-1021 for the card base.   I used the print and cut feature on my Cameo for the image as some of the pieces were too small when I tried cutting them out.  My card is an A2 size card so the image had to be cut at about 3.5 inches in order to fit. I added some bling on her shoes and belt. 2014-01-29 11.42.54                                                                                                               Since he is turning 65,  I figured a sexy girl on the card would give him a laugh.
