"Happy Day" Masculine Cards

When I have several cards to make, I've started making the same design for at least two of the cards. It speeds up the process and I don't have to "think" as much! I needed a couple masculine cards and these are what I came up with, a very simple design, layering different papers, and then also layering my stamped image onto a "stitched" circle.

I made the eyeglasses card using Stampin' Up's True Gentleman DSP from the 2018 Occasions Catalog. The stamp is from a retired Stampin' Up set called Perfectly Wrapped.

The colorful bottles card was made using Stampin' Up's Bubbles & Fizz DSP from last year's Sale-a-Bration catalog. I've had both papers in my stash and never used them, so I brought them out for these cards. I may just keep going while I'm on a roll!

Baby Girl Card

I always love using baby animals for baby cards. This card was made using the giraffe from the Cricut Create a Critter cartridge. The card is the standard A2 size card using various shades of pink for both the card and the layers of the giraffe. I used a Cuttlebug circle dot embossing folder for the white layer. The "welcome baby" is stamped with the And Many More stamp set from Stampin' Up. The "girl" stamp was part of an older Stampin' Up stamp (1996). Sorry but I don't have the name of it! I added two little enamel dots at the bottom and a die cut bow and rhinestone to the little giraffe's neck. The dark pink layer on the card was die cut using a stitched framelit.

Bunny Banner Wreath

Simple but cute little cut-out bunnies made into a banner! I used the shadow chocolate bunny cut from the Cricut Create a Critter 2 cartridge, cut at 4 inches. I inked the edges of the bunnies with white ink and glued on some cotton balls for tails. I glued the bunnies to some pink ribbon to create the banner. Very quick and easy project! Polka dot paper for the bunnies is from Stampin' Up!
