Eagle Scout Congrats Card

Posted on

Hello Friends!

My nephew in Pennsylvania has just earned his Eagle Scout Badge and will be honored at a Court of Honor this weekend!  I wanted to make a special card for him to celebrate this awesome achievement.

I used Sketch 188 from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenges to create my card.  I think it was the perfect design for my card so I am linking my project to their blog–check it out!  The paper is from the Enchantment Fundamentals collection from Close To My Heart along with coordinating cardstock colors of Cranberry, Sapphire, Whisper and White.

The Cricut images were cut from the Be Prepared for Boy Scouts cartridge.  I don’t own this cartridge, but I was able to purchase the two cuts I used for only 99 cents each.  I love my Explore and Design Space!  The cuts were so intricate, but they cut beautifully–another reason to love my Explore!

More November Stamp of the Month Cards

Posted on

Hello Friends!

Yesterday I shared a few cards that I made with the November Stamp of the Month called New Year’s Wishes that were NOT related to New Year’s events.  While writing that blog post, I thought of another way to use the snowflake stamps on that set and here is the result.  A random stamped and heat embossed background and sentiment in non traditional holiday colors!

Since one of the latest challenges at Heart 2 Heart was to create a holiday project using non-traditional colors (no red or green), I decided to link up this card to share.  Check out their blog and the other great projects!

Take a look at the sketch above from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge!  The next card I made using the November Stamp of the Month was based on this sketch so I am entering it in their challenge.  I was pretty ambivalent about the colors while I was making this card, but it turned out to be one of my favs!  Check out my previous blog post for more ideas on using the SOTM for non New Year’s creations and visit Atlantic Hearts for even more creative inspiration!

I used the gray side of the Uptown Fundamentals paper along with Slate ink, Whisper cardstock and the Slate polka dot ribbon that coordinates with the Uptown papers.  Won’t it make a great wedding or anniversary card?  Just change up the sentiment on the inside to fit your occasion!
