I thought I’d share some of the cards I’ve made recently.
This was for a friend.
The wording was made with a stamp. I don’t remember where I got the stamp, but I love it.
This one was for Jim’s birthday in March.
The wording was done on the computer and it and the background shapes were made with two different sized punches.
This was for Timothy’s birthday:
Since these are licensed characters (PJ Masks, for those of you unfamiliar with preschooler TV heroes. 🙂 They provided the theme for his birthday this year), I wanted to be careful not to just copy images from the Internet. I searched for free PJ Mask printables and found these as cupcake toppers, then printed and cut the figures out for the card.
The rest are for Mother’s Day. This one was for a sweet lady I’ve looked up to as an adopted spiritual mom since my college days.
The paper was so pretty and detailed, I wanted to keep any added decorations simple.
This was for a friend, and I ended up using the same basic idea, but on a square card.
This was for my mother-in-law:
The design was done on the Cricut, but was a little smaller than the card, so I filled in the corners with these stick-on 3-D flowers.
And this is one of my favorites, for my daughter-in-law:
This just looked like her and Timothy! This design was on the Cricut also, so all I had to do was choose the design and papers, push the right buttons to cut them out, and then glue it all together.
You can tell I am not a professional, with not-the-best lighting and my fingers in some of the photos to hold the cards down. But I make them as an expression of love to the recipients and for fun and a creative outlet as well.
