Shabby Chic

I have been inspired lately by all the shabby chic cards and layouts I have seen.  I am impressed by how a card or LO can almost be more of a work of art than "just a card".  It has never been my style, but I am a good faker, lol.  I decided to try my hand at the shabby chic style, and this is what I came up with.  It is a birthday card for my mother-in-law.  I really like how it turned out.  Luckily she saves every card I have made for her, so the effort is not lost on her!

I used lots of distress ink, the lace is dyed with distress ink.  The flowers are hand-cut because I dont have a flower cart yet.  There are real pearls in the center of the flowers.

Card Swap

I joined a Birthday Card Swap on the Cricut Messageboard.  I have to create a set of man, woman, girl, and boy cards.  The card in my last post was used for the woman card.

I found the man card on Pinterest.  The coolest part about it is that the pocket can fit a gift card in it!!  LOVE IT!!!!

The boy card is from the Batman Cricut Cart.  

And the girl card is from the Smiley Cards Cart.  I only have this one in digital form on my gypsy, so I overlook it  a lot, but it is SO CUTE!!

I scraplifted this card idea from the cricut messageboard and this blog, A Time to Craft.  

Imitation is the best kind of flattery, right?

Feb Technique Challenge - Storytellers

This page was for the Ink-y Heart Challenge at Storytellers.  I inked the hearts and then I stamped the word LOVE on the large heart in the center.  I love the challenges.  Makes sure I actually get stuff done!

On a Card Roll...

Heres another kiddie card.  I had already pieced the puppy together earlier, from the Create A Critter Cricut Cartridge.  I completed the card for Connies Card Challange on the Storytellers Club Forum.
