Cricut Giraffe Baby Card

Here is the third card for the card party.  I always include at least one or two baby cards.  I wanted this one to be gender neutral, and I just love this little giraffe, it's so cute!  The giraffe is from Create a Critter.  The patterned paper is DCWV from 'The Stack 6.'  I store some of my acrylic stamps in a 3 ring binder in acrylic folders from Inque Boutique and I didn't save the packaging so I am not sure where the baby stamp came from.  This card is A7 size.  I used the A7 honeycomb Cuttlebug Embossing folder for the kraft background and theQuicKutz A2 Embossing Folder POLKA DOTS Mixes for the blue behind the giraffe.  I used  the Martha Steward fringe scissors for the grass.

Masculine Birthday Card - Golfer

Hi - this is the second card I designed for the card party.  I always like to include something masculine, otherwise I would probably put flowers on everything!  I used a Cloud 9 Designs background stamp I got on clearance at Joann's for the houndstooth background.  I can see why it was on clearance, the quality of the stamp is not very good and it was difficult to get a good image out of it, but for the way it was used I didn't need it to be super crisp.  The golf stamp is from an old See Dee's set called Father's Day that I have had for years.  The Happy Birthday stamp is from Stampin' Up, I love their stamps!  Other than that I just card stock from my stash and a button and some twine.  I got some cool acrylic shapes a while back at Pat Catan's that came in different sizes.  They are very thin and they are for tearing out the shape, I used it for the cream behind the image.  I also inked all of the edges using Stampin' Up Chocolate Chip.

Mr. & Mrs. Wedding Card using Artiste Cricut Cartridge

Hello - this simple wedding card is going to be used for a card party that I am hosting in a couple of months.  I am trying to keep  the cards fairly simple this year because everyone had a difficult time finishing up last year.  I used the Artiste Cricut cartridge for the Mr. & Mrs, the circle and the decorative circle.  The patterned paper is from a Recollections paper stack from Micheal's.  The ribbon is from my stash.
