This card is for my son's birthday in February. He loves the outdoors. I cut the fish from Potpourri Basket cartridge. I decided to make it look rustic and cut the fish from some thin metal. I likes how I could bend the fish to look very realistic. My husband was very generous to donate one of his flies to add to the card. I love the black feathers!
All our grandson wanted for his 3rd birthday was a fire truck. He got some for Christmas, in fact he got one that is battery powered. His birthday party was fireman themed so I made this cute card for him. The fire truck is from Independence Day Cartridge and the clouds and fence are PTI.
My son's birthday is in January. He loves the snow so I made him a snowflake card. He is so funny. He always thinks I don't put much time into his cards so I proceeded to explain how I printed the paper myself, cut the snowflakes from the PTI die and then added glitter to the snowflakes rubbing in the glitter so it would sparkle. I embossed the SU stamp from Perfectly Penned. I added a black button and some twine. Then there was the inside... After I got all done explaining all that I did to make the card, I think he finally recognized the work I put into it! He is a great son, he just wants equality in his birthday card. We just laugh!
My husband celebrated his birthday in February. This was the card I made for him. The card uses the PTI banner set and stamp set for the background. The anchors are from Going Places Cricut cart. Inside the card says, "to the one who keeps me anchored." He loved it!
For my thank you cards after Christmas I found this card online and thought is was so cute, but I made a slight change and exchange the greeting to thank you. I used the PTI Holiday words die cut and cut the bell from my Cricut using the Christmas Cartridge. The paper is all PTI.
Here is a thank you card I made with the Friends til the End stamp from PapertreyInk. The ribbon is from Stampin Up. I love the bright colors. My husband needed a card to give to a store who donated a some money to the local community, he being a co chair on the community council. The woman on opening and receiving the card said she had never received a thank you card for all the money they have donated. Pretty sad. She loved the card.
This is a fun card I made for my dancer granddaughter. I used the SU die as the background for the dancer and the PTI Mat Stack 3 for the inside. The background was stamped with Stitches and Swirls. The dancer is from Everyday Paper dolls.
