Card # 3

I love the dashing reindeer. This was another silhouette that I traced. I cute some reindeer from paper and some from glittered vinyl. I like the 3 D of the paper but hate gluing the scroll antlers, the glitter vinyl was a much better choice. Here is the file leaping deer 11 2018

Card #2

Here is my second card. It is a simple gate fold card.

I had some cute buffalo plaid paper and used that to make the card. It was then simply cutting the vinyl and applying it to the card.

Thanksgiving is tomorrow…

And that means it is almost  time to get Christmas cards into the mail…I know, it seldom works like that.

I LOVE making cards!  I send out about 100 Christmas cards, crazy but I love it!

So for the next few days I will share some quick and easy cards I made along with the files.

I saw this on Pintrest and knew I had to make it!  I Googled 3 wise men silhouettes and found one that I liked. I imported it into KNK Studio, scanned it and vectorized it so it was a cut file. I then sized it to fit the card. I also found a star that I liked and did the same. I cut both from vinyl. I used a paper cutter to cut the blue paper and the brown was a cheap paper bag that I hand tore. I chalked the edges. The stars are just dots from a white paint pen.

I have an adorable little great niece whose name is Lucy and she just celebrated her third Birthday. When it came time to make her Birthday card I pretty much knew what I wanted.

Isn’t she cute! I forgot to take a picture of the card I made for Lucy so this is a remake, but Lucy’s card had the number 3 in the balloon. After making this card I tweaked the file so that the dress sleeves were more solid and the top of the dress had no little pieces. Here is the updated file lucy

Pandas with heart part 2

Last month I made a card out of a panda I modified. At work, we had a secret cupid and I knew I wanted to do something with that panda again. So I sized it up and made a panda shape card.

The person I was secretly giving gifts for figured out it was me.

She said that she heard I was the one who “made cute cards.” So I guess I outed myself.

I stamped some envelopes to match.

It was a lot of fun and even though she figured out it was me, it was worth it.
