World Card Making Day was Saturday, Oct 4, and I actually got a couple of cards made. Well, I made one card on Saturday and the other one on Sunday, so it was a weekend endeavor.
First up is a birthday shaker card. I love shaker cards and this one has a birthday cake on the front. I used the Arched Top Card Base and Party Shaker Tags from svgcuttingfiles.com to make this card. The stamps are from Jaded Blossom — Birthday Treat Tags and Birthday Candies. I also used one of the Mini Tag 2 dies to cut the sentiment circle. I heat embossed the sentiments.
The pattern paper is from SEI and I used Doodlebug Design sequins inside the shaker. I outlined the candle flames with Stickles.
The next card I made for our dog, Fifi, to give to Steve for his birthday in a couple of weeks. Steve doesn’t look at our blog, so I don’t have to worry about him seeing the card.
I used the Dog Bone Shaped Card and the Pomeranian Pup files for this card. Fifi is a mix of Pomeranian/Chihuahua, but she looks like a Pom.
I used the computer to generate the sentiment and cut it out with one of the Flag Dies from Jaded Blossom.
I am entering both cards in svgcuttingfiles.com’s monthly challenge, which is a Birthday Card Challenge. I’m also posting them to the Cricut Circle Message Board, where Sara is hosting a challenge for World Card Making Day.
