Before school closed for the week, I had a few co-workers ask me to create a couple birthday cards, 2 Bridal shower cards, and some Easter cards. I thought this week would be an ideal time to get them started. Here are a few that I worked on last night and this morning. I had to leave space on the cover since many of the cards will be personalized. I did not want to add any names until I go back to school on Monday and each person picks their favorites. Once they select the ones they want for their grandbabies I can add a few embellishments if needed.
I have a couple more that I need to finish, but they are taking a little longer since they are a different fold. Click here if you are curious to know which type I am making.
I am going to enter this card into a couple of challenges:
Here are the supplies I used:
Create a Critter chick ~ 3"
We R Memories Keepers paper pad ~ Madame Royale
purple ribbon and gems
Create a Critter (standing rabbit), Simply Charmed (chick), Give a Hoot (sitting bunny), and Hello Kitty Cricut cartridges
various papers, ribbons, brads, florals, and wiggly eyes
I am trying to use my stash and scraps, but who can pass up a good deal? Target's goodies were 50 - 75% off. Those Color Box pads were regularly priced $6.99 but they were on clearance for $1.49. The Cuttlebug embossing folder was regularly priced $9.99, but it was on clearance for $3.99. My daughter picked out those buttons from Joanns. I LOVE how they coordinate.
Only one more day left of Spring Break. Then it's back to school until June. I need to make 2 Bridal shower cards on Sunday and I am going to try and use those awesome stick pins that Carri has been using. I found some pins laying around the house and Kelsey has tons of beads. I am hoping I do not stab myself!
If you get a chance, please visit my daughter at One Creative Teen. She just posted two great projects. She also started working on changing her background. We still need to adjust the header, but it definitely reflects her personality.
Enjoy the rest of your night.
