Snow much love





I created this pull out style card using a darling precolored digi image from the Paper Creator store called Snow Much Love.  Cut out the card base and layers with my Cameo using cut file 104086 from the Silhouette Store.  Please note I altered the cut file to remove the bottom row of snowflakes.  It now has a flat area for the bottom of  the card to sit on.  Recollections polka dot paper and white ribbon are from Michaels.

Just dropping you a line


Just a silly card I made to cheer up a friend who is having some problems.  She likes to sew and I thought this cute little mouse from Paper Pretties would make her smile.  Colored the image with Prismacolor pencils.  Cut out the image and background layer with Cottage Cutz Stitched Square Set.  Chevron background layer and scalloped border were cut out with MFT dies, tag with Spellbinders Charmed I'm Sure die and photo corners with Quikutz photo corner die.  Added some lace and prima flowers with punched leaves.
