Baby shower card

Here is a card I put together for my neice's baby shower. I used mainly scraps along with a couple sheets of plain cardstock.
Its a pretty simple card. I thought the monkey was cute, and thats her theme. He was cut from the Paisley cricut cartridge.
Close up of the monkey's face. I used some stickles on the tassel on his hat.

Inside the card. Below you can see I also made an envelope to go with the card.

I used a Dew Drop ink pad to make "leaves" for the envelope. I used and ink pen to make the "veins" of the leaves.
Well thats all I have for today. The shower is saturday, so I hope she likes it! Thank you for looking today, please feel free to leave a comment. Enjoy reading your comments. Have a wonderful day, God bless!

"UR A GEM" card

Here is a card I made today for my Mother-in-law for Mother's day. We didn't get to visit her on Mother's day, so we are going to see her this weekend. I hope she likes it.
All the papers, except the card, is from the scraps. The jewel cut is from "Once Upon A Princess" cricut cartridge, "UR A GEM" is from Cricut Classic Font cricut cartridge and I welded it together on my gypsy. The ribbons are, once again, from a bag my dear sister gave me.

I glittered the white part of the gem and ran the purple paper through my cuttlebug using the swirls embossing folder.

Here you see I layered the two ribbons. I love those colors together.
I popped the gem up for a little dimension. I left the inside blank so I can hand write a little note, but I'm thinking I am going to put a piece of the green (same color as the sentiment on front ) on the inside to write it on.
Thats all for today, thanks for stopping by. Hope you liked it. Have a blessed day.

Thank you card

Here is a card I made using some scraps from other projects. This is probably one I'll keep in my stash for when I need a card quickly. It is a pretty simple card. The ribbon is some from a bag of scraps my sister gave me, the flower was cut from Sweet Treats cricut cart.
Front of the card.

Here you can see the ribbon has a lighter color on one side.

I made some pop strips out of some scraps to pop the flower up a for a little dimension. I;m thinking I cut the flower at 2 1/2". The base is 4 3/8" x 8 1/2 ( I think ). LOL

This is the sentiment on the inside. This was a stamp I got at JoAnn's a while ago in the dollar bins.
Well that's about all for now. Like I said all the papers were from the scrap pile so I'm not sure whay stacks they are from. Thank you for stopping by today, hope you liked my card. As always, I love to read your comments so feel free to leave some.  Hope you have a blessed day.
