Cards I Have Made in the Past Couple of Months

This is a card I made to thank the instructor I had for eight weeks to learn Italian before I went on a recent three week vacation in Europe.

Paper from scrap stash, Cardstock: A C Cardstock and The Paper Company, Cuttlebug  and Thanks folder, Martha Stewart Scoreboard, Hemp, Adhesive: Glue Glide Pro

One of my son-in-laws loves to read, so I thought this would be the perfect birthday card for him.

This is a birthday card I made for one of my sisters. Her favorite color is red, so I had to use a lot of red for her card.

Last week one of my granddaughters celebrated her 9th birthday. It was fun making this card for her and seeing her joy when she opened the envelope.

This card was designed using the Provocraft Gypsy. The little girl shape is from the A Child's Year cartridge. I took one of the shapes and flipped it than welded the two shapes togethter to form a shape card using the Gypsy. Than I welded the number nine from the Birthday Cakes cartridge to the cupcake. The Happy Birthday with balloons is also from the Birthday Cakes cartridge.

LOVE the cards! Especially the girl one...from A Child's Year? How did you do the book one? TOO cool!

Vernetta--the book was made using the Cursive 101 Cricut cartridge. I used paper from the Tim Holtz Idea-ology paper. Than I inked all the cut edges with Ranger Distress ink. Thsn I taped a ribbon as a bookmark to the back before adding to the front of the card.

Thank you for your comments, they are highly appreciated.
