This is my last post for Stampin’ Buds as a design team member. I can’t believe how fast the time has flown. I hope I’ve provided plenty of inspiration! This week, I wanted to feature the Picture My Life feature of the Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge as they do so much more than scrapbooking.
A few weeks back, I needed a couple of birthday cards in a hurry. Out came the Cricut, and two cards were done in no time. Here’s a feminine card:
Then, I flipped my paper over and cut another one for this more masculine one:
I added a few of the adhesive stickers from the Confetti Wishes Compliments to dress things up. To add dimension, I placed the gold sequins both on top and under the cut-out “HAPPY”. On the first card, I also tied a small knot of Thistle ribbon around the outside edge and inside of the “H”. The banners were cut with my paper trimmer then fish-tailed using scissors. For the second card, I attached the Topiary Washi Tape before cutting the fish-tail. (Please note, I couldn’t find the link for Topiary Washi, so the shopping link below goes to Topiary Chevron Ribbon instead.)
Everything else is pretty self-explanatory I think, but let me know if you need clarification in a comment below and come back to see the answer.
So quick! So cute! So sad to say good-bye, but I hope you’ll visit me on my blog at Expressions and, therefore, will leave you with my customary closing…
Until next time,
