My first and second easel cards based on Darsie Bruno's tutorial


I made two easel cards loosely based on the card Darsie Bruno made.  I have posted a link to her blog and she also has a youtube video on how to create this card.  I have never made an easel card and this one is not exactly like hers but I like the way it turned out.

Second and last (so far) easel card.  This is the link for Darsie's gorgeous creation and I hope she won't mind my very loose interpretation of her tutorial.

Marc's valentine card 2016


This is the card I made for Marc this year using "fall squirrel" and "nuts for you" files from Miss Kate's Cuttables site.  The squirrel originally had acorns and leaves at the bottom and one he was holding but I imported the acorns with hearts on them from the "nuts for you" file and then just popped up two extra layers of the hearts on the bottom to stand out.  I just printed the leaves out for the corners and cut them with scissors.  On the inside I just printed the sentiment and did not cut it out.  Just a little glitter on some of the hearts and all done. I used crystal effects for his nose and eyes, one of the eyes shows up glossy and the other one doesn't. The links for these two files are - http://www.misskatecuttables.com/products/product/fall-squirrel.php and http://www.misskatecuttables.com/products/product/im-nuts-for-you-title.php.

Christmas cards using Silhouette Store files and glitter paper






This is a file from the Silhouette Store that I cut mirror cardstock with and glued down to glitter paper and then attached to a 5.5x5.5 heavy card base.  The aqua one is one I did for Amiti and it is the only one I made from this cut file which is also a Silhouette store file.

Finally - a Christmas card!

This is a card made from a free cut file from Bird's Cards at this post http://www.birdscards.com/snowflake-card-cover/.  The words are Chopin script font from my computer.  Also thank you to Glenda Brooks for the advice on adhesive. The glitter cardstock is a pain to both cut and glue down.

Melba's BD Card from a CUP file

This is a 3D image I got from CraftsUPrint.  It was printed on my printer and cut out with scissors and then the layers were popped with pop dots.  I added sparkle on the background and on the roses.  I haven't posted in a while and really haven't made many cards, this one was made in June.  I had planned on having most of my Christmas cards made by now but I have not even made one!  Definitely running behind.

Janice's BD card



This is the card I made for my niece Janice for her birthday.  The first one shows how it looks closed and the others are with the front open and then the inside of the card.  I had to use my knife to cut out the opening and also the frame so it isn't perfect but I hope she likes it,  She is only 8 months younger than me and this is a picture of us when we were a lot younger so I hope it brings back some happy memories for her!  The corners are cut from a La La Land die and the swirl is from Spellbinders.
