Here is another fun card. I haven't done a tri-fold in a while and this is a blast to make. I used Cricut Sports Mania for the jersey, Basketball and Hoop. The lettering on the jersey and the number were made with Cricut Lite Varsity Letter cartridge. The name is a whole 1/4 high (I had to cut that one a few times :) The background paper I made using a jpeg of the logo and just repeated it throughout the sheet. Here is the card closed.
I hope you like it. It was a blast to make!

Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!! This valentine's day is the 16th one I've spent with my wonderful Hubby. He is so supportive of my paper habit and always gives me the extra boost of confidence I need.

I was requested to make a sympathy card. When you hear of someones passing, the first thing you want to do is send flowers. That was my inspiration for this card. I wanted to keep it elegant and I used muted colors as it was for an older lady and I thought she'd like it more. I used the Mother’s Day Bouquet Seasonal Cartridge for the flowers.

Here is another stand card I made. I was requested by my wonderful Co-worker Susan to make this after she got her standing X-mas card I made her :-) Her daughter is going to give this to her God Mom for Chinese New Year. We talked about an idea, I sketched it out and this was the final product. I've added a bunch of pics to show the different elements close up. Hope you like it. The card measures 6x12" The Pagoda, Tree and Bridge were all cut from the Pagoda Cricut Cartridge. Since it's the year of the "Rabbit", you will find two rabbits cut from the 2010 Easter Seasonal cartridge.
This first Picture is the card closed.
This is the card opened and standing. We talked about continuing the rocks to the inside to hold the card open. I also used Origami paper as the background paper.
Here is a side view. It's a bit dark but it's the only way you can see the clouds clearly. I used zip 2 way glue and white flocking to make them.
Here is a close up of the little girl "Her Daughter" It is a Mo Manning digital stamp which I colored with copic markers.
Here is a side view so you can see how the bridge pops out. I glued one side then let it pop forward and glued the other side. I'm not sure if you can tell but it has a glossy but not shinny finish on it. I did that by painting it with clear nail polish. The water or stream is made from cutting and crinkling a piece of blue cellophane wrapping paper. It too is only glued on the ends to hold it in place .
Here is a close up of the tree and the rabbits. Both are flocked to give them a fuzzy texture. The grass is also flock with a zig 2 way glue pen.

Wow you would think my specialty was baby shower cards!! They are just so fun to make. Here is another baby shower card I made for my co-worker who expecting twin boys!! This set of 50 was requested by her Mother in Law and I had a blast making them. I hope everyone that got one enjoyed them too! The idea was her Mother in Laws and I just ran with it and made it come to life. The whales are cut from the Create a Critter cricut cartridge at 2 in. I used my gypsy to reverse the image so I could have them facing each other. The water was made using an old making memories wavy paper trimmer using light and dark blue paper. The saying I printed on using my inkjet printer and the font is Harrington. Hope you like them!
Thank you Diane for your business!
