Autumn Anniversary Card

Just a short post of an anniversary card I made for my cousin.  Somewhere, and I forgot where, there's a challenge to use layers on a card and I got the idea of using another multi-cut  image from the Preserves cartridge-this time a lid, to make a large sunflower.

I used the sunburst cut also from Preserves for the "leaves".  I put the flower cuts through assorted cuttlebug folders to heighten the layering.

There isn't any yellow card stock, I guess the lighting  from the camera flash made the orange turn yellow???

The corner elements are made from one small gold doily cut into quarters.  I embossed "Happy Anniversary" in gold from a Michaels dollar bin stamp.  Tim Holtz antique photo ink and Dazzle gold gems are the rest of the decor.  This is a 5" by 5" card made with Color Bok card stock.

Thanks for stopping by. If you have a chance leave a comment, I'd love to hear from you.


Christmas Card - 1 2 3

This is a "Use it or Loose it" project.  I have some designer papers that never seem to fit a project so they wind up in a big stack.  I decided to pull out this retro looking plaid, tomatoey red, and lime green and make something for Christmas.  Here are the results.

 1. The retro tree was cut from Christmas Cheer.

 2.  The cuts were from Cricut: the ornament  from Christmas Solutions, the star from Christmas Cheer,  and "Merry Christmas"   from Jubilee.

 3. I used the skate cut from Winter Woodland combined with an oval from George to make the  skater card.
 The skater is also from Winter Woodland.  The eyelets are Dazzle Gems.  I may change the bow, becaue I don't like the way it looks.
Sometimes the paper lets you know what to cut.
Thanks for stopping by.
