I haven’t been able to post the last couple of days, because I’ve been busy re-working my website. I hope you like the updates. I made this cute little mini card for one of my co-workers, who likes Hello Kitty. This card’s finished dimensions are 3″ by 3″ with a 1/2″ depth. I made a slot in this cute little card to hold a roll of smarties. Watch my youtube video to the see how made this card.

 

 

Hedgehog Happy Birthday Card

Hedgehog Happy Birthday Card

Handmade Hedgehog Birthday CardI just got the Cricut Birthday Bash Cartridge. I thought this cartridge would be useful, because I make a lot of Birthday Cards. I was really excited to get this cartridge because each button has so many features.

Page from the Birthday Bash Cartridge

Each button has:

  • a Cute multi-layer Birthday Image

  • a card or tag shape, plus coordinating card layer

  • a two layered Birthday phrase

  • Two characters plus shadows, so you can write your own sentiments.


The card is from page 43, and I cut it at 5 1/2″ in craft cardstock. I cut  the scalloped layer at the same size in red card stock, and then used my Happy Birthday embossing folder. (the embossing didn’t show in picture) I cut the fat oval shaped from the tag on page 70. I cut it at 5″ in a piece of designer paper from the Sweet Nectar stack from K & Company. I cut the hedgehog at 4″ I think. It cut him out several times trying to find the right size. After assembling my hedgehog, I embellished the hat and blowout with white gel pen. Everything is recollection cardstock except the top layer, which is Bazzill Bitter Chocolate. After adhering the circle layers, I attached the hedgehog with some pop dots. Then I punched some holes in the top and tied a bow.

  • Cricut Birthday Bash Cartridge

Handmade Back to School CardThis super cute back to school card is a 5 x 5 square. The base is recollection craft card stock. The background paper is from  DCWV The Green Stack and has really cool texture. I used a piece of brown paper from The Green Stack for the first layer of the apple. The ruler was cut from a piece of card stock from the K & Company Paper Stack Sweet Nectar.  I don’t like any of shades of green that Recollection makes, so I stock up on variety of Bazzill green shades. I used lime crush for the apple leaves and the bottom green layer of the inch worm. The top layer of the inch worm is a sheet of green from the DCWV Blossom Stack. Both images are from the Create a Critter Cartridge. The apple is from page 25 and the inch worm is on page 65.  I hope you like this card and it inspires you to make a back to school card.

All the cats are super cute in this cartridge. Most the cats have fours layers, and are generally easy to assemble. The noses and are ears can sometimes be really small.
