Easter Cross Cards

 As usual I've been in my crafty room and this
time it's a FREE svg cutting Easter Cross card.

Isn't this simply Gorgeous!
This is Bird's sample card that she made and is offering it FREE
to everyone.  I love the yellow card
base and the all white Cross and background with the pretty lilies.

Click on the link below to get this file.

First up is my purple and gold card. I cut the Cross out of shiny Gold paper and
backed it with purple cardstock. For the background I used a pretty purple leaf pattern.
Gorgeous card and perfect for Easter and other occasions.

Next up is my soft green and gold card. I used the gold flower cutouts
from my goldcross above to add a little sparkle and also cut the flowers
in various colors.
For the background and leaves, I used a Anna Griffin embossing folder.
  I added a sheer white bow under the flowers.
Simply elegant!

I used the Cricut  "Wildflowers" paper
pack. I bought them when they were on sale, plus I used Melody Lane's
10% code. This is the first I've used Cricut paper and I love it. It's beautifully
textured and a nice weight for cards and also any 3d projects. It also cuts
beautifully with the Cricut Maker, Sizzix Eclips2 and Explore.
Great papers!!
Snag it when it goes on Sale!
You can view the papers by clicking on the links below.


I also picked up this Hello Kitty's soooo cute!
I'm not sure what I'll make with it. Do you have any suggestions?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
"Hello Kitty"

Up last is my white embossed card. Again, I used an Ann Griffin folder to
emboss the background and a simple purple sheer bow.
 After seeing Lee's finished cards, I've added Pearls
to the flowers and cross to give it a touch of elegance. Thanks to Lee, I've
added gems to my other cards also.
Beauty and simplicity all in one card!

That''s it my friends for another crafty collection.
Hope that I've inspired you today.
Have a great week!

Truly- Madly- Deeply- Valentine Heart Lantern- Lips Box- Ornate Cards

Hello my crafty friends. I hope that everyone that had that flu
is well again by now.  Your well wishes really helped lift me up.
Thank you all!
I'm back to normal and have been crafting this gorgeous
Valentine heart lantern and cards by Bird's collection,
"Truly, Madly, Deeply"
It's simply divine!

You can get the collection by clicking on the link below.
And it comes with a step by step tutorial. How cool is that!

Up first is this lovely heart lantern that I cut out on my Cricut Maker, 
using white cardstock. I embossed the top lid with a dotted pattern. The
butterflies were in my stash that I bought a long time ago at the goodwill 
and knew that someday I would have good use for them. 
For the middle heart, I embossed it with Anna Griffin Aviary Cricut
Cuttlebug folder. I love this folder and it's the first time using it. 
I think it turned out perfect, wouldn't you agree.
 Since I used velum and it is pretty thin, I cut another heart out and
glued them together.
So pretty when the light shines through!

Side view and closeup of the pretty hearts going up the sides. I put a
multi colored led light in it and it's so beautiful at night and also during
the day. Quite fun and easy to assemble watching the tutorial.
Gorgeous lantern!

Close up of the pretty embossed bird on velum. There were some spots that kind
of tore and that's why I glued a second plain layer of velum behind it.
I love how it turned out!

This is Bird's Ornate framed love card from the collection.
I love how the envelope matches the card. So lovely!

Up next is this lovely ornate framed card all done in blue willow
and white. I used the Blue Rose Cottage from The paper studio that
I got from Hobby Lobby awhile back and I simply love this pack.
I added pearls and a florescent heart to the middle that could be
used for Mother's day or actually any occasion.
Very easy to assemble and is a gorgeous card to send to a special
friend or loved one.

Up next is my pretty pink and black card. Do you notice anything
different on this card? Well, I got distracted by my little pup, Katie
and I glued the roses in reverse. lol
And, when I pop dotted it, I put it on upside down.
I couldn't change the glued one, but I was
able to pop it off to turn it around. Whew! Thank you, Katie! haha

I also cut the love out in white, but also cut it in black and white
polka dots. I wanted the top to be in white and bottom dotted to
give it a different effect.
Hope you like the finished card. I think it turned out great.

Up last is my special card with a cameo in the center. This would make
a lovely Mother's Day card for anyone to be proud of and a keepsake for sure.
I used Graphic 45 paper with two shade of Lilac. I glued only the
black letters on this one, so that's why the "O" is smaller. The paper
was so pretty that I didn't want to cover it up with the full piece.
There are so many colors and patterns to make this lovely card very special.
 The picture doesn't do it justice, it's soooo pretty in person.

I wanted to thank, Bird for her gluing tip in her tutorial, while she glues
 the roses on. I've never thought of putting glue on that way.
If you haven't watched her video, you should watch it for sure.
 Great tip!
