Card-making Fun!


Hello, friends!  Today I want to share with you 3 cards I made recently.  Two were for new babies, and one was for birthday.

For this one, I used some scrap paper and my Cricut Maker.  I cut the design out of the green and had the Cricut marker add the words.  I added some adhesive lace from Hobby Lobby on the left side of the card (they don't seem to carry it anymore) and a simple bow between the onesie and the words.  This one was pretty easy, and I think it looks "just okay."

For this one, I did some ink blending first using yellow, green, and aqua from my Color Petal inkpad.  I like the way the inking turned out. I used ink blending tools with the dome shaped foam.  I layered the message Special Delivery and layered the clouds.  I used scrap paper for all of the cut images.  I had the last name on the tag in the stork's mouth, but I colored it out to protect their privacy.  The stork had 5 layers and was very tedious to put together.

I just noticed a balloon without a string!  Oops!  I used stamps from for this card.  I used the Cards for Kindness stamp set to do the "Happy Birthday" part and the Sunny Studio Birthday Balloon set.  I drew the strings with a Flair pen. I then sprayed with Tonic Studios Nuvo Mica Mist in Nebula Blue.  It tends to curl the paper, so I had to leave it under a heavy book for a while and iron it on low to get the curl out of it.

I am still learning.  If you have any tips and tricks for me, I'm open!  In the meantime, for more crafty goodness, visit Crafty Creators and Friendship Friday.  Have a great weekend!
