Two Special Cards

These cards are for two special people in my life: a good friend and my loving husband :)

~The first card is for a friend who has been going through a rough patch over the last while. She has been experiencing  a lot of ongoing stress and has just come to the end of her ordeal with a happy ending! I feel very happy for her and wanted to let her know so I made her this card:

All of the cuts for this card is from the Create a Critter Cricut cartridge. I started out by welded two fish bows together with my Gypsy to create the card.
The sentiment is from My Pink Stamper and Memento Tuxedo Black ink was the ink I used. Once I was done stamping I used some Inkadinkado chalks to fill the bowl up with water.
I finished off this card by adding a ribbon to the top...I love how this card has turned out and I am really excited to give it to her :)

~The next card I made was a anniversary card for my wonderful husband. On Wednesday we celebrated our 9th wedding anniversary :)
Since I was making this card for a guy I did not want to add to much bling or embellishments to it, so I kept it relatively simple.

The cow is from Create a Critter Cricut cartridge and her eyes have been altered to look like she is dewy in love. They start at ½ inch and are from a circle punch and the Platin Schoolbook cartridge.  I have added some Glossy Accents to them and her smile to add some depth to the card.

The sentiment is from My Pink Stamper and has been heat embossed with some black embossing powder to help it stand out. I finished it off with some white faux stitching around the edge of the card with my gel pen.   

Having just moved I was really happy to be back at crafting again this week! We are just about settled in and have everything almost where we want
Thanks for stopping by,
I had a lot of fun creating these two cards this week!

  1. Love the cards. Isn't it great to have the gypsy to help us make the most of our cartridges. Have you tried the new cricutroom?
