Slim Mariposa Birthday Card

Image
I absolutely adore the new die set that I purchased called Mariposa. There are three different packs of dies that can be used alone or combined with one another to produce endless styles and designs.

This is the first card that I created to see how the dies would cut. I used my Cuttlebug and this particular set cut beautifully. However, some of the dies in the set are quite large. In fact, they are so large that it would be better to use this with the Grand Calibur by Spellbinders or one of the Big Shots by Sizzix. 

I am calling this my slim card. It measures 6 x 3 inches.

Christmas Cards

I know Christmas has just passed but I really want to build up my collection of Christmas cards. I don't want to wait until the last minute to start making them. So, I will be posting Christmas cards that I have made.

Here are two quick and easy cards you can make in less that 10 minutes. The first card was created using the Christmas Kitsch cartridge by Anna Griffin.



This next card was created using the Holiday Cards #19. The cards in that collection a perfect for the beginner or non-crafter. It will cut out the base (this cuts out the image on the front of the card) and the backing piece. Fold in half and you are done. I will be posting more of these in the weeks to come.

Hello Kitty Valentine's Day Card

Here are a couple of cards made with the Hello Kitty Cricut cartridge. This was made using the "Print then Cut" feature in Design Space using the Cricut Explore. I was able to add text to the heart and printed everything before cutting it out with the Explore.

This card is a shaped card. I cut the card base out separately and added the image on top.





This card used a base and background papers from Recollections. The Hello Kitty image was designed and cut and them added to the card base.
