May is a big month for greeting cards... between birthdays, Mother's Day, and various other events like showers, new babies and then some. I like it, because it means I get to flex my creative muscles.
The first card here is a birthday card for my sister. I used a turquoise, white and red colour scheme, and my first step was to gather objects in those colours and decide which ones I wanted to use. I picked out a heart-shaped doily, a page from a French novel, some ribbon and a sparkly brad, and then some scrapbook paper. I used my Cricut cartridge to cut out the star, and a stamp that says "Happy Birthday".
The second card was for my mom on Mother's Day . I used images and lettering from my "Wall Decor and More" Cricut cartridge, and a pink, brown and beige colour scheme. Really love how this one turned out!
The last card was for my grandmother on Mother's Day. I actually ended up making this one using only supplies I had left in my craft room at my parents' house, that I didn't take with me when I moved out. It was pretty challenging, because I didn't even have a pair of scissors with a straight edge, or any of the proper adhesives! I ended up getting creative with the ribbon, and I adhered it to the card using my GeMagic machine! I used blues and browns of different shades, and I think it came together quite nicely!
