Birthday Party Invites

Birthday invites are always fun and definately a lot quicker with the "Wild Card" cartridge. The first one was made for a birthday that had a Wii theme.It is meant to resemble a Wii wheel. I cut the circle card from using the wild card cartridge and then I cut the blus circle and the Wii from vinyl. For the circle I used the George cartridge.

The second one is much more bright. The colors are lime green and deep hot pink. I stamped the "You're invited" with white versamark and the used lime green embossing powder and heat embossed it. I also inked around the edges of the white cardstock and heat embossed those edges also in green embossing powder. Just click on the picture to get a closer look :). I used the "wild card" cricut cartridge on both invites. Can I just say I LOVE the wild card cartridge. It is perfect for quick cards, and it also has the envelope to match! I LOVE IT!!!!

Fun Get well card

This is a card I made for my daughters birthday party a few years ago and then I thought it would make a cute get well card. I made the ladybug by punching out 2 - 1 1/2 " circles (one black and one red). Cut the red cirle almost in half, pull it apart slightly and add to the black circle. Add brads for spots.

Note: I don't know why it looks a little blurry by the words, if you click on it you can see it better and it is clear :)

Thank you cards

These colors and patterns of these cards were inspired by a card my by amazing and talented friend, Natalie. She makes the most beautiful cards and I loved the colors so much...I made some different cards with her color scheme. Thanks are the best!

Happy Birthday

These cards were simple to make. I actually did about 6 colors in all, but only have pictures of 3. I used my cuttlebug and the happy birthday embossing folder. Inked the cards and added ribbon. I also did white cards inked and accented in orange, lime green and torquoise blue.
Note: I lined up the square for the present to match the background.

Princess Birthday Invite

I have not made cards for awhile, so this was especially fun. I made these for my 4 yr olds Princess Tea Party. I used the Wild Card cartridge...which is wonderful, cuts out the invite and the envelope. I embossed the invite with the cuttlebug folder Princesses. I used violet ink and inked all the edges and then tied the envelope shut with ribbon. I love purple and so does my 4 yr old.
