Cheers! Card

I made this card for a swap.  The theme was summer shaped cards.  I used the Pack Your Bags Cricut cartridge to cut the card.  I added Stickles, rhinestones, ribbon, twine and a cute button to finish it off.  I hope my partner likes it!  

Happy crafting!

Congratulations Pop Up Box Card

Here's a card I made for a GF daughter who just received her Master's from Florida.  I wanted to try the box card...

I think it is a fun card and will definitely give this type of card another try.  

Here's the Details:
Image - clip art I found online; I added the graduation cap.
Sentiment - both are from Stampin' Up:  Starburst Sayings & Occasions Alphabet
Papers - all from my scrap basket
Extras - Stampin' Up Starburst Framelits Dies, tag punch, rhinestones, brad, CM corner rounder & ribbon

Here is a tutorial for this type of card: Card in a Box  I did adjust my measurements so my card would fit in a 5x7 envelope.  

Hope you are having a crafty day!

Fun in the Sun Card

This was the only crafty thing I accomplished this weekend...we were busy, busy!  

Here's the details:
Image - Beach Cutie Toots from Simply B Stamps; I colored her with Primscolor pencils and accented with lime, yellow and orange Stickles; as well as Crystal Effects on the sunglasses and float.
Sentiment - came with the digi; added Crystal Effects
Papers - all from my scrap basket, I don't think you can tell in the picture but the patterned papers are pearlescent
Extras - Prima flowers in yellow and pink, ribbon, button, small pompom, and that cute crab is a cupcake pick.

I may have gone a little overboard with the embellishments....

I am entering this card into the Anything goes challenge at  Simply Challenged Challenges.

Happy Monday!
