Little birdie

The sweet little bird and the branch are from the Straight from the nest cartridge. I cut the bird and the branch with CCR. The phrase "tweetheart" is also from this cartridge and is cut at 1". The phrase was too large for the card base, so I cut it up in two parts. I added the phrase "heart" inside the card.

Handmade Spring card

I haven't used my cricut expression for a while and I thought this project would be nice to make with the cricut. I used the cindy loo cartridge and create a critter cartridge to create this Spring card. The flower is cut at 4". All circular cuts are done by using CCR. The smiley is from peachy keen, size 1". The greeting is cut at 1¼ " from the artiste cartridge.

Yellow and white mail art

I gave the card an embossed layer using an cricut embossing folders (stylized flowers) on light yellow card stock. I thought that the yellow colour was too light, so I added a flower cut out of bright yellow card stock. Check the inside of the card for a surprise:))

The envelope is obviously stamped using clear stamps, a water brush and an ink pad. The flowers are coloured with prisma color pencils. I covered most of the white of the envelope using my water brush and the su stampin' pad ~ yoyo yellow for a nice watercolour background. This is also to get rid of the white parts of the envelope. I went through the borders of the thin folding lines of the envelope for a deepening effect and finishing touch. It's very nice to see!
