Baby Crib Cards

Hooray!  I have been on vacation for a week now- with one more week to go!  The weather has been great!  It has been hard to play in my craft room with all the outside work that I wanted to get done.  But this morning I decided to finish these 2 cards that I have been working on a little bit at a time.  I was inspired by a bunch of crib cards I saw on Pinterest.  It seems they have all been made by "cut files".  I don't have one of those ( not sure I know what that is) but I do have Tim Holtz's bird cage die.  I took 2 of those and overlapped them a bit to make the crib part of the card. 

I bought the ribbon on the bottom of the girl crib from Joann's.  I am thrilled to use it since I have had it for some time.  The giraffe, bear, baby, bottles and pacifier are all Sizzix dies. 
Now I have to admit I used a Jolee sticker for the mobile on the Boy card.  It was so adorable!  I decided to make my own mobile for the girl card.  That is a Spellbinder umbrella die. 
The cards do fold so you can mail them.  I am sure the postage will be greater since I added so much stuff to them.
Here is a picture of the back of the card.  These were fun to work on!  Now back to my gardening!  Oh, I am having a yard sale this weekend too!  Wow, I have forgotten how much work those can be.  But it is fun to meet and talk to people who come to the yard sale.  The weather is supposed to be great too!!  Have a great weekend!

Co-Worker Pop Up Book card birthday!

I have made another Pop Up Book Card for a Co-Worker -this time I used Graphic 45's Typography line of paper!  I have been hoarding my Graphic 45 paper and the new me is now not afraid to use it!  I even lined the inside of the envelope with some of this beautiful paper!  I don't know if you can see it but I layered the front of the card and put some Crystal effects on the "Joie De Vivre".  You might see it better if you click on the picture below. 

Here is the inside of the card.  I did some "fussy" cutting and added a few flowers.  I just love the bright, vibrant colors of this paper!

The Pop Up feature of this card makes it a different type of fold that is fun to make!  The last few cards I have made have used this type of fold for the card.  You can check out the last few posts I have done to see more examples of this type of fold for a card.

I didn't leave enough room for everyone to sign - so we will sign the back!  I love the sentiment from this paper line.  How true!  It's a Good Day to have a Good Day- especially on your birthday!  I hope you have a Good Day too!
