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.

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

Hulk Card for Operation Write Home

Hi all,

I hope you all had a great Easter.  The weather here was perfect and my grandchildren had a blast looking for their eggs.  Spending time with family and making memories is what it is all about.

I made this card with SVG Cutting files Hulk image.  I love their images. They come together easily.  I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the image and the print and cut feature to print and cut the sentiment.  I think this will be perfect for a little boy and will add several of these to my box of cards for Operation Write Home.  It is an A2 size card and the image was cut at approximately 3 inches.  I used Tim Holtz distress inks on the edges. The gate is a Martha Stewart punch.

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!

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.

Valentine Cards for Children

Hi all.

I hope everyone is staying warm during all this frigid and snowy weather.  We had another 12 inches of snow today followed by sleet and possibly more snow tonight. We didn’t get mail today  so I am glad I already mailed my grand children their Valentine cards.  I hope they get them tomorrow.

I used images from the silhouette on-line store and the cut and print feature on my cameo.  The cards are 4.25 by 5.50.  I decided to use the z or s fold after I was inspired by Cardz tv’s card.   I used the cute owls for my two youngest grand children and the adorable dogs for the two older ones.

I hope you all have a wonderful and warm Valentine’s Day!20140211_194356 20140211_194409 20140211_194626 20140211_194653 20140211_194758(0) 20140211_194827 20140211_194853
