I got my inspiration for these cards from the July/August issue of Paper Crafts magazine. They give you a card layout design and some samples and then you use them as inspiration. And this is what I came up with. They are super easy to make. The only Cricut on it is from George and Basic Shapes. It is the square shape. They are cut at 1 1/4”. I used 12 squares per card. The paper is from the K and Company stack Watercolor Bouquet. The prints are a double sided paper. The sentiments are rubber stamped. The lace is from my stash. The flower is from a ribbon. I just cut them apart individually. TFL.

I got the inspiration for this card from the current issue of the CARDS magazine. The card size is 5.5” square. All the paper is from DCWV Glam Gal Stack. I had some chipboard letters that I wanted to use, so I glued them down to the paper I liked and then used my Exacto knife to cut around the letters. Then I put them on pop dots. I made the rosette by using a 1.5” x 12” piece of cardstock and scored every 1/2”. I used ribbon that I had on hand for the leaves. The button in the middle is an antique button from a stash a friend gave me. The doily is from a pack I got at Michaels. All the borders on the front, back and in the middle are from the Cricut cartridge Elegant Edges.
I am sure I left something out. But, I got a tooth pulled yesterday! Oh my word, did that hurt. Not during, but afterward. And it still hurts something fierce! I have tried to save this molar for 5 years with root canals, crowns, etc. But, it just didn’t work. And now I have a big old hole in my mouth. It’s a bummer getting older….lol!

Hi Everyone! today’s card is just a quicky. It is a card that could be used for just about any occasion. I like having a few of these on hand in my card stash for emergencies. Then I can just rubber stamp or print a quick sentiment to go on the inside.
The card is close to an A4 size. It is just a bit bigger. The scallop shapes are nestabilities. They are the largest 2 scallops in the regular scallop shapes. The butterfly is a K&Co. Sticker. The base is embossed with my cuttlebug and a quickutz folder. The ribbon is Making Memories. I just rippled it back and forth and used my hot glue gun to glue it down. the brad is a find at the Target Dollar Spot. Thanks for looking!
