Graduation Cards

14 05 2017

This week was INCREDIBLY BUSY. Two of our boys celebrated their birthdays on Tuesday. Wednesday, two of our girls graduated from high school. Friday we had a kiddo graduate from pre-k. There were various doctor appointments – planned and unplanned. We had family in town for the day on Saturday. I had a lesson to prepare for church, and today was Mother’s day. It was a long week, but we did it 🙂

And in the chaos, I managed to make graduation cards for my girls. Both can be found in the Silhouette Store.

 

I wasn’t too happy with the size of this first one. I thought it would be bigger and I told my daughter I would make her a new one. She likes the small one, so it’s all good 🙂

Overall, the second one turned out how I thought it would and I’m okay with that 🙂

Thanks for stopping by!

Butterflies equal Spring, Right?

20 02 2017

We had another 70* or so day, so my spring card making must be working 😉

Here’s a cute butterfly box card I made for a friend. I’ve been itching to make this for a while and finally the time was right 🙂

I cut the butterflies out on colored paper then embellished with copics, using the examples Mary used in the kit (found here at SVG Cuts).

Thanks for stopping by and happy almost spring!





Spring Box Card

19 02 2017

I’m kind of in love with box cards. This one is part of the Springtime Box cards kit from SVG Cuts.

One of the things I like about floral box cards is the ability to give flowers that last longer than traditional flowers and don’t cause allergic reactions 😉

This card is nice and simple to put together. You can do it quickly, or take some time adding details to the stems and flowers.

I cut the tulip bulbs out on white cardstock then used my copics to color them 🙂 I used my prismacolor pencils to add shading and highlighting on the stems. The little paper beside it is for the greeting. I’ll add this to the back after it’s signed. This kit also contains envelopes for each card. Let’s face it, non-traditional cards don’t fit into traditional envelopes 🙂

Thanks for stopping by!
