This is a Cricut card that I made for Valentines Day, I think it turned out so cute. Cards for boys can be tricky but this one turned out really well. The cartridge I used was "Robotz" and he was cut out at 3 inches. I used Bassill card stock. in red black and gray. Some black and white patterned paper I had in the scrap paper drawer. The hearts are from a Cuttlebug Die/Embossing set "Love Always" and I used a gold gel pen to highlight the words on them. The Embossing folder I used was a Darcie folder named "Swirl". The card is an A2 size in black. The mat is 4 x 5 1/4 in red. The band is cut at 5 1/4 x 2 1/4 in black and 5 1/4 x 2 in polka dot. The large mat is 3 3/4 x 3 3/4 at bottom 2 3/4 at top. Then embossed with Darci. Striped paper is cut at 3 1/2 x 3 /12 at bottom and 2 1/2 at top,
Mechanics of Love
As always have a great day. Thank you for stopping by and taking a look. I hope you enjoy the card and please feel free to leave a comment.
Hello everyone I am tired of Christmas cards, so I decided to post a beach scene. This is not Stampin Up and I did not use the Cricut. I did use the Cuttlebug as an embosser and Die cutter. This is a shaker card. One of my favorites. I love using the sand, I think it makes this card. I also used a die cut starfish in with the sand as a point of interest. I used the Gamasol technique with pencils to color in the stamped image. The flip flops are an EK success punch. I truly hope you like it. It is very different than what you are used to seeing from me. This would be very easy to replicate with Stampin Up products.
Day at the Beach
This is a A2 size card 5 1/2x4 1/4. I used the Oval framelits of three sizes. The clear celaphane was from the back of a stamp set. The stamped image was adhered to the celaphane with foam tape, and it made a complete seal so that the sand doesn't shake out. Glue dot the celephane on the card first, then place foam tape all along the edge of celephane, put small amount of sand and starfish in center of celephane, remove backing from tape and place stamped image on tape. Tah-Dah a shaker card. Hope you enjoy the card.
These two are takes on two cards I have done before, so I hope that you like them. By the Tide one, I feel like is much more my color style, compared with the one I had posted previously. Please remember to send Thank You cards out to all of your family in this season of giving just to let them know you are thankful for all the thoughtful gifts. I truly believe that in this world of text and email, a handmade card shows someone that they are worth your time and energy, and that still means something.

The button was colored in with Cherry Cobbler marker and the linen thread was loop through and a bow tied. The photo corner was an embelishment that I had lying around.
