Sympathy Card

I needed a sympathy card for one of the ladies that works for me, her mother passed away recently and I wanted her to know I was thinking of her.

There are no Cricut cuts, oh no! I started with a 4.25x5.0 card. I used the Stampin Up embossing folder- Manhattan Flowers, I then used pink chalk on the roses. I topped off the chalk with stickles to add some sparkle. The ribbon is from Walmart. The sentiment is from Stampendous- Encouraging Words.

I made this card with a few challenges in mind. My card is a 4.25 x 5.25 card. I used red card stock and the paper is from the $1.00 bin at Target. I used the Storybook cartridge and cut my hearts at 2.5', 1.5' along with the shadows. The rhinestones are from Studio G and the ribbon is from my stash. I used Creative Time-stitched oval die for the label. The sentiment is from Studio G. I used foam squares to add dimension to the hearts and the label. Hope you like my card.

Sweet Valentine


I hope you are enjoying your weekend. I made a Valentine's Day card for one of my granddaughters. My card is a 5" x 6" card. I used Core'dinations cardstock for the base. The printed paper is from the dollar bins at Target. I cut the paper at 4.5" x 5.5". I used Valentine's Sweets Digital cartridge in the Cricut Craft room and cut my bear at 3" and all the layers. I inked all the edges with Stampabilities Ink-Pink. I added twine and rhinestones to the heart from my stash. The ribbon is also from my stash. For the sentiments I used My Creative Time-Tiny Tags on the heart and Studio G on the tag. I think my card turned out really cute don't you?
