Tinker Bell Just Because

A just because card I made for my youngest granddaughter to put in a package I’m sending her.
This is a large card 6 X 12 inches. The card base is Wausau cardstock. All of the remaining paper and cardstock are from my stash. Rubons from my stash were used for the sentiments.
Using the Gypsy and the Tinker Bell & Friends cartridge, I cut the Iridessa  character (page 60) and mushroom (page 69)  and all their components at 5.98 inches width by 5.47 inches height with the Cricut Expression. All the parts were adhered with Zig 2 Way and Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive.

Close up of Iridessa, she is popped up with  Scotch Foam Mounting Tape. The fringed layer of her wings is EK Success Laura Ashley vellum. The butterflies are from K & Company. Various markers were used for accents such as Sakura Gelly Roll and Zig Millennium. A little Glossy Accents was used on the pupils.

Patchwork Birthday Card

This is a card I made for my sister Joan. She is three years younger than I, but we share the same birthday.
The card is 6 X 6 inch. I chose the printed papers from daisyd’s cardstock Sweet Baby Jane 8 X 8 inch pad.

2 X 8 inch strip of the printed paper
Cut the 2 X 8 inch  strips on an angle at opposite corners to form triangles.

I used the Xyron 900 to apply adhesion to the triangle pieces.
Using a piece of Georgia Pacific cardstock cut 6 X 6 inch as a base pencil mark the center of the sheet.

Starting at one corner of the base adhere the first triangle with the tip placed at the center point of the base.

Continue adhering all the triangles to completely cover the base.
Using scissors or paper trimmer cut off the excess paper from the base.

Used Bazzill cardstock for the card. Adhered a 5 3/4 inch piece of printed paper using ATG adhesive. Made a 5 3/4 X 2 1/2 inch decorative strip using the Martha Stewart Swirling Lace punch.
