Easter Cards

Good morning friends.  I would like to showcase a couple Easter Cards I made recently.  The first Easter Card is for a child and some digital/cut file designers call this a 'shaplie card'.  What I did was created the front section first, using a background cut out of the bunny.  I used the boolean technique through Make the Cut software, but I do it differently than the tutorial I read way back when, but come up with the same style.  Than once this is done, I create the back of the card with mirror option and than weld the two together to come up with the card base.

The image itself is a cut file from misskatecuttables or Treasure Box Gems but I downloaded the eye files and placed where their eyes had been.  The mouth, I typed in the ), turning it upright to make the smile.  The nose is a heart I cut out with my cutting machines.

The inside of the card, I print and cut a bunny rabbit with Easter Eggs, and attached, as a border, to the bottom edge.  Stamped the sentiment using the Stampin' Up " Wacky Wishes'  stamp set.

This is a overlay from Creative Kuts that I got as a free file from Cheryl.  I cut the Cross base from gray card stock, the cross from taupe (?) card stock.  I had the flower in my stash so placed it n center of the cross.  Easter sentiment tag is print and cut and from Cricut Design Space.

That's about it for today.  Thank you for visiting with me today, and may you all have a blessed weekend.

What I am doing now-a-days

This is what my craft table looks like NOW.  Have been painting several pictures which I plan to frame and hang on my bare walls in my new apartment.  Long process, but it helps with the stress level.  But my cat, Deena likes to join me and get in the way. LOL

Thank you for visiting with me, and have a blessed day.

Daughter-in-law's Birthday Card

Good morning all.  Yesterday was my daughter-in-law's 40th birthday and I created this card for her which I have not given to her yet because I finished it last evening.

The floral image I colored, using a ipad app called recolor.  I have to confess that I erased the hand/arm from the center as I didn't find it appealing!!  I printed it out using Adobe Photoshop Elements, and than cut the image with Brother's Scan 'n Cut (which I will be using more as my Cameo for some reason will not recognize the registration marks when print n cut).

I have the ribbon in my Silhouette Studio library so brought it up and sized it to fit the card, and before applying to the front, I sprayed it with glitter paint.  Apologize for the smeared look because of handling it.

Here is the inside of the card....

The birthday presents are by miss kate cuttables.  I used the jpeg file included with the cutfile and finding a verse on the Internet, I printed and  once again using my Brother's Scan 'n Cut machine, cut it out and placed in the center.

I will be posting more of my projects as I finished them.  Thank you for stopping by to visit with me today, and God bless you all.
