It’s Beer and Pizza Day!

Posted on

Hello Friends!

It was my turn to choose the challenge for Bitten by the Bug 2 this week and as I was searching around for a bomb-diggity idea that was non-Halloween and non-Autumn related, I discovered that it is Beer and Pizza Day!!  It will also soon be the birthday of my beer and pizza loving husband, so BOOM, the challenge was decided!!

I used several Cricut cartridges as I designed this birthday card in Design Space–St. Patrick’s Day (beer), Elegant Edges (background) and Phrases (speech balloon).

I used some older Simple Stories patterned paper from my stash along with Close To My Heart cardstock.  On the front panel, I made a collage of lots of CTMH birthday stamps.  I stamped them in tone on tone ink, then heat embossed with clear embossing powder to give a subtle textured finish.

I decorated the inside of the card with matching shapes as a focal point for the sentiment.

Here is the Design Space file if you would like to make this card yourself.  You do need to own the cartridges I used or subscribe to Cricut Access in order to cut the files.  Enjoy!!

Get Well Cards

Posted on

Here are the Get Well cards I included in the card collection for the silent auction (see previous post).  I used old Die Cuts With a View paper, sticky ribbon from American Crafts, and  the Phrases Cricut cartridge.  The tea cup on the first card is a holder for a tea bag or package of hot cocoa or whatever!
