Happy Father's Day, Dad!

Our challenge at My Sheri Crafts is to make a masculine card/project with embossing, in celebration of Father's Day.   I used my Old West cartridge for this card.  I cut the letters at 2" and the hat was cut at 1 1/2".  The paper is from DCWV.  I embossed all the die cuts and the background paper with Cuttlebug folders for a raised, textured look.  I added some inking, baker's twine, metal brads and Viva Decor "Pearls" in Bronze to complete the card.  The scalloped portion of the card was punched using Martha Stewart Cornice punch.

Happy Father's Day to you Dad!

Butterfly Garden Gatefold Mini Album

I am hosting once again our challenge at My Sheri Crafts.  I thought of "May Flowers", hence the "Flower Power" theme.  :-)  The requirement is to use 3-dimensional flowers in a crafting project.

I have started this mini album when Kiko was a baby and finally finished it last week.  Yes, it took me almost two years to make it.  I was glad that I waited though since I was able to incorporate some die cuts that I made using Cheery Lynn dies.   For this album, I used paper from Pink Paislee's Butterfly Garden paper pack.  I also added a Melissa Frances designer paper for one of the pages.  The flowers and butterflies are from Prima and Recollections, and the gate laser cut is from Maya Road.  I got the flowers in the last page from Kim, from one of the swaps in the Cricut message board. I added some lace from my stash, buttons and a cameo from Webster's pages, a Tim Holtz ticket and key, and tags from 7 Gypsies to fill up the pages.  The punched butterflies were made using Martha Stewart punches.  The crystals and pearls are from Prima, ZVA Creative and The Paper Studio.



I would also like to enter this project to the following challenges:
