Graduation Cricut Card Idea

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

June is a busy month especially because  lots of children will be graduating from kindergarten, middle school, high school and college too!

Our Great Niece just graduated and is heading to Kindergarten 🙂

Using my Cricut machine I had a cute Cricut Card Idea and created this card.

~ Congratulations to Iliana and all the Graduates ~

Job Well Done!

Cricut Card Idea for A Sweet Sixteen Birthday

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

Celebrating special birthdays are more fun when you get to create a birthday card using a Cricut Explore Air Machine and rubber stamps 🙂

Today I am sharing a card that I made for our niece Nicole who is having her Sweet Sixteen Birthday.  I am really starting to feel old… LOL

The cake was made with the Cricut Explore Air and the candles with a stamp and thin die cut set from The Stamps of Life.

I stamped 16 candles on white cardstock then put it through the Cuttlebug® Machine using the matching candle die cut.  I love die cuts because it so much easier and quicker then cutting each image out with a scissor.  Colored each one using Copic Sketch markers.

Then the fun part came when I put it all together using ATG tape and also dimensional to make layers of candles.

Another great thing about handmade greeting cards is that if your creation doesn’t fit on a regular A2 size card, you can make it any size that you need too!

~ Happy Birthday Nicole ~

Happy 1st Birthday Step Up Card

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

I had so much fun making this birthday card for our great nieces 1st Birthday.

happy birthday

This Cricut Explore Air machine is the BEST and using the Design Space to create these fun looking cards is so much easier then I expected (since I am really not a computer person) 🙂

I also used the Cuttlebug with an embossing folder to get the flower image onto the white cardstock.

There are so many great things about the Cricut Explore and Design space but what I have noticed is that I am not wasting paper anymore. I know exactly where everything is going to cut on the cutting mat because your computer screen shows what piece of the image is going to cut next.  I think that’s SUPER COOL 🙂

Creating Graduation Card Using Cricut Explore Air

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

Hope you are enjoying your day.  Today I want to share with you a card that I made for our nephew who graduated high school.

Using my new Cricut Explore Air Wireless Cutting Machine was AWESOME 🙂

Finally took the leap from the Cricut Expression to the Explore Air and I am so happy.  I am still learning how to use the design space, but with the videos that Cricut has available, I am doing better then expected LOL

The  Cricut Cartridge, Wild Card  is what I used when making this graduation cap and it was super easy and fun.  But I guess when you are crafting and doing something that you love it is always fun 🙂

A Happy Birthday Zentangle Cricut Card Idea

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

Today I want to share with you a birthday card that I made for my Poppa (my husbands dad).  I always have a hard time making masculine cards and I wanted to make this one just a little different then all the others that I have made for him over the years.

I am still fascinated with each Zentangle design that I create because I never really know how it will turn out and the biggest thing when you Zentangle there are no mistakes (can’t erase) which makes it really challenging at times

I used two Cricut Cartridges to make this card – The base of the card was made from the Close To My Heart Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge.  Its hard to see in this picture but the sentiment Happy Birthday is on a pop-up.  That is one of the great function keys on this cartridge.

The Balloons and the Happy Birthday sentiment, are from Hello Kitty Greetings Cricut cartridge.  First I cut the balloons on white cardstock.  The I took the blade out of the Cricut housing and added a black marker to write not cut the Happy Birthday sentiment.  If you are going to look for these balloons on your cartridge Hello Kitty was actually holding these balloons and I cut her out of the card – sorry Kitty just wanted your balloons LOL 🙂

Then I drew all of the Zentangle designs on each balloon (it took awhile but was sooo worth it) with a Sakura Micron 01 black marker.  It is so much fun to see the end result when you Zentangle.

Since I made the base of the card black so that the images would really pop off the page, I used a pattern paper for the backing for this pop-up card.  The pattern of this paper really looks like a Zentangle pattern but I didn’t make it.  I just wanted to show you how I put my handmade stamp on the back of this card so it could be seen with that patterned paper.

Well this was another super fun card to make.  Hope you all have a great day and a wonderful weekend.
