Birthday Card for my Son

Hello Friends,

Today I wanted to share one of the birthday cards that I made for my sons birthday this year.

This card was cut @ 7 inches from the Artfully Sent cartridge.
I used The new Explore to cut this and it cut so smoothly, no snags in my paper and 
it cut fast as well. I did not have to worry about the depth of the blade or any thing else for that
matter just set the dial to card stock and that was it.

I used my new scor pal to score the card at 5 inches.  The paper came from CTMH.

The hardest part of making this card was trying to decide what
pieces of paper I wanted to back my words.  I wanted to used bright colors and I think that I
accomplished my goal.  The pieces were cut different sizes just big enough to cover the word.

Here is the finished card I like how it turned out.

So now on to the inside.  I took a piece of paper from the scraps of the card cut it at 2 x 5 and 
placed it on the top I used the stamp set called
Cricut Artiste Birthday Collection for the sentiments.

I used the scor pal to make an envelope for my card this was one of the templates that 
came with the scor pal.  It worked out great.
I hoped you liked the project today.

Thanksgiving Card

Hello Friends,

I wanted to make a card today for Thanksgiving.  What are you thankful for this Holiday season?

This card was cut @ 5 1/2 by 12 inches and them scored to give it a swing card look.

I used paper from CTMH Adventure Assortment and from My Minds Eye 6 x 6 paper pad called All Spice.  The Ribbon is from a Thanksgiving roll I picked up form Dollar General last week.

I cut a white  piece of paper from  Colorbok @ 4 1/2 by 4 1/2.
The sentiment on the inside was from Bo Bunny Rubons fall collection.
The jems are also from Bo Bunny 
I hope you all have a wonderful Holiday season and check back for some more Holiday crafts.
