Dad - U Rock - Father's Day Card

Hello!  This is a Father's Day card I made for my Awesome Dad!  It's a fairly simple card, but I like the way it turned out.  I love this cute digital stamp from Tiddly Inks.  Dad was cut with my Cricut using the Cuttin' Up Cartridge at 3/4".  I colored the image with Copic markers then distressed the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink.

Birthday Easel Card with Handmade Roses

Hello!  I just finished up this cute birthday card.  I learned to make these roses using 4 flowers cut from the Cricut George Cartridge and just had to use them on a card.  The cute stamped image is from Tiddly Inks - they have some really cute digital stamps.  I colored the image with Copic Markers.  The roses are also colored with Copics.  The patterned paper is from the DCWV Pocket Full of Posies Stack and the ribbon is from Chatter Box.  The flowers for the roses were cut at 3/4" for the small roses and 1" for the larger ones.  The sentiment was embossed with a Cuttle Bug Embossing folder and then inked - "to you!" is hand written.

I found this video on YouTube that shows how to make the roses.



This is a picture of the card when it is closed - I wanted it to look pretty either way.

Here is a close-up of the colored image.  I haven't had my Copics very long - I am still learning how to color with them.
