First up is Friendly Butterflies!
This 4X4 card features a Recollections patterned paper with colorful butterflies in cool blues, teals, and greens. I complimented the patterned paper with the pretty butterfly on the Indie Art Cricut cartridge, cut in a bold plum. I think the touch of coral in the mat really pulled the card together! Sassy!
Up next is I Heart Rainbows and Clouds!
Another 4X4 card in pretty pinks and purple! I found the rainbow paper by Recollections in my stash, where it's been hiding for a while and it was absolutely perfect for this card! I ran the heart from the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge through the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder and then 'floated' it on the cloud cut from the Once Upon a Princess cartridge. I think it turned out great! So pretty!
Finally, I wanted to do something a little different with the packaging for these cards. So instead of the traditional envelope, I created wrap-around bands with themed establishments. The 2" bands are wide enough to write on and slip on and off of the cards pretty easily. I thought this was a unique touch and I really hope my co-worker's daughters like them!
Welp! There they are! Two bright and fun V-day cards that I hope everyone will enjoy! Now I'm not quite sure if it's 'persuasion' when you just kind of *tell* someone that you're going to make cards for them...but either way I appreciate my co-worker and his family for letting me get my Creative Daze fix! LOL
See you guys next time! Thanks for stopping by!
