CPS #145 and Color Throwdown #71 - Christmas Star

Ever since I bought my Cricut Expression last February, I have been wanting to buy a Christmas cart so I can make Christmas cards. But since I ended up buying a whole whack of Christmas cards at amazing prices in January, I told myself I would use those up first. When a co-worker asked me to make a card for her son for Christmas, I couldn't resist. I turned to CPS this week for the sketch and used colours from Color Throwdown to come up with this card. I used a 4" holly border from the Cricut Stretch Your Imagination cart, Swiss Dots embossing folder and a star I designed in Microsoft Word. I can't say I'm overly thrilled with the result but I can always change it, I suppose.

ICSketches #45 - Little Prince/Baby Boy Card

I have finally forced myself to create a card for a challenge and, though I had to stay up really late, it was worth it. I was asked to make a baby boy card for a co-worker and so I turned to ICSketches for the layout of my card. This is a 5 1/4" square card. The name is cut out twice at 1" using the shadow feature from the Pooh Font cartridge. The cute puppy is cut at 3", twice on two different blue papers, and once using the shadow feature from my new Sweethearts cartridge. I used my Fiskars border punch and dollar store stamp for the sentiment. I also used a hole punch for the eyes, coloured them in and drew on the mouth.

I really like how it turned out. It seems I'm using chocolate brown in my cards a lot lately.
