Happy New Year!
2012I am working on updating my card inventory for the New Year. I have decided that with my new Cricut and the lovely cartridges I got for Christmas, I will be able to make my own cards. I started out with making cards without my Cricut. My next plan is to use the Cricut to see what amazing things I can do. Here are a few of my non-Cricut made cards;
I am using up my Stampin' Up cardstock. Here I used a brown cardstock, layering on top a soft pink cardstock. I put a brown and pink pattern piece I had in my "leftovers" file. I then put down a pink ribbon. Over the ribbon, I layered brown cardstock with green piece to which I stamped "find joy in the little things". I then stitched ivory white stitching on the top and down the right edge about halfway. I layered a piece of the brown with ivory white. I stamped three green stems and two flowers on this white piece. I stamped a third flower on another piece of the ivory white cardstock, cutting it out and pasting it at the end of the stem to give a 3-D look. Over this, I put down a pink ribbon. I glued this work piece to the card, overlaying it on the brown and green piece. I then tied and glued a little brown bow onto the floral piece. Once dried, I glued it all to an off white pre-made card.
I really enjoy making cards and I do not duplicate my creations. I am thinking maybe with the Cricut I can make up some multiples. This may be the year to make some changes. I love to give cards as gifts, and my friends tell me they really appreciate receiving them!
