Today I wanted to share a birthday card I made. The dogs are from Nate's ABCs as well as the ball he is playing with. "Happy Birthday" on the front is from the Celebrations cartridge and the font is from A Child's Year. I wanted to make the ball bounce as it spun so I used the rope font from the Old West cartridge. I connected a s,c and ) so it would wrap up and down more.The ball even makes a bouncing sound as it goes up and down.
The inside of the card - the ball in the corner rotates as well.
Hi, I wanted to share a card I made for my grandma's birthday. I used the frog from the Mini Monsters cartridge for the front. I don't have any embossing folders with dots, so I ran the frog through the embossing machine over some jiffy grip fabric to get the raised spots all over him. After I put the words on, I noticed they were off-center. I stuck some ribbon on the side of the front to make it look more even. The frog on the front is a shaker. I love the phrase "I was toad... it is better to get laugh lines than to get worry warts;" which was cut from the girl font on the cupcake cartridge. The frog inside is from the Paisley cartridge. He and the "hoppy birthday" both pop-up when you pull the arrow tab.
So, this is a shaker card my little sister and I made for our nephew. Our internet wasn't working, so we couldn't use any design software. It's been a while since I only used the machine. My little sister hand-wrote the message on the front. The dinosaur and phrase are from Create a Critter.
I tried to keep the card simple. I added eyelets all around the border and put an extra paper behind it that I glittered so you could see some color in the middle. My little sister helped me to color the image.
This is the card when you pull on the tab:
I love the image of the little outfit with the airplane on it because my Mother-in-Law enjoys collecting baby clothes with a plane theme and this is meant for her. Now if we only had a kid to wear some of the clothes :-)
I'm going to enter this into the following challenges:
Hi! I'm so excited that I actually won top 3 at My Craft Spot :-) I put the little caption thing on the sidebar.
I just wanted to mention about dressing up my blog, I added a new background that I made out of blue paper - I inked it and chalked it to get the texture look then cut out the cloud shapes and added different kinds of puff paints to make the clouds look more realistic. I also found a cloud font online and used that to cut out the title then inked it pink. I used a google image to cut out the plane with Make The Cut. For the look of the propeller moving, I cut two circle shapes from an old plastic shell the cricut cartridges come in. Then I inked the edges black and overlapped them where the prop would be. Here's a picture of what just the plane looks like against the cloud background:
I hope you like the new look, I'm excited about how it turned out!
