Christmas tree flip card

Look familiar?  Yes I did make a similar card a few months ago.  This is a slightly different version of the Christmas tree flip card I made in Sept.  I used the same red card base and diagonal paper, but cut out a solid green tree.  I embossed the tree with a Cuttlebug swirl folder and added some red twine and a tiny gold metallic star which I cut out with a Whimsy die.  The other pieces were cut out with my Silhouette Cameo using a cut file from the Silhouette store.

Thank you card

It's been raining on and off all day so I am staying inside and playing with my Silhouette Cameo.  I am running low on Thank you cards so I went through the cutting files in my library that I purchased from the Silhouette store.  I found this pretty floral one that I bought a while ago but never cut out until today.  The colors are a bit off in the photo, in real life the card is bright white and hot pink on a black card base.  Pearls are white too but look yellow in the photo.   But the dark overcast skies are making me use a flash this afternoon which alters the colors.

Pine tree starry night scene card

Working on the last group of cards to go in the package to the Caring Hearts card drive on Monday.  This pretty starry night scene is a precolored digi image I bought from the Fred She Said store.  The name of the digi set is Pine Trees.  I cut a dark green frame 1/4" larger than the image, then punched the edge with a EK Success corner punch that I have had for ages, but rarely use.  Added some gems and a pretty navy blue ribbon.

MSC Thank You Card

Went shopping at the My Scrap Chick store and bought some new cut files during the sale last week.  This is the first test cut of a thank you card from a set called "Happy cards".  Cut out all pieces with my Silhouette Cameo and lots of cardstock scraps from my salvage bin.

Puppy Card #2 for the kids

Another puppy card for the little boys at the children's charity. 
 Made with left over paper scraps and a tag I printed then cut out with a Spellbinders die.


Puppy card #1 for the kids

I'm getting ready to send another package of cards to the children's charity.  I made lots for the teenagers and older kids, but  needed some cards for the little boys.  Thought they might like some with dogs on them.  I found these fun print papers in my scrap bin and made up some quick cards with simple layouts.

Merry Christmas

This cute little elf is a precolored image by Mo Manning and sold by The Hobby House. 
This is going in the box for the children's charity.   I think they will smile when they see this one.
