Sending Samuel love

We hope that you had a wonderful birthday. We love ya💓

Card cut at 4,5", but it is quite small. From top to bottom is 4,5". So keep in mind when you use the
Wild card 2 cartridge that you adjust the measurements. I forgot that I had to choose another size on the cricut expression. Well, Samuel is a small boy, so he'll rather be happy and will not notice;))

Making my envelope from scratch. I just came about an inch short of the designer card stock. A piece of light blue card stock was my solution. Hand free envelope made and all scratch of this designer card stock is used😊

Card recipe:
card stock ~ light blue, soft yellow, dark brown
designer card stock ~ double sided
vlv rubber stamp
su rubber stamp ~ happy birthday
copic multiliner

Card sharks ~ card sketch #5

My take on the sketch and I really like the designer paper and the colour combination.

This is my first time trying to make tassels. I made about twelve tassels for the Handmade embellishments swap July, because I made two out of one string of embroidery thread. Six for the swap and I kept the other halve. They are so CUTE! I do have to say that my first attempt was not a true success, but it can do:) I am happy with these tassels:))
