First Responder Cards

Hello, crafty friends. I have a couple of cards to share today for first responders… I started by creating a gatefold card.

Next, I stamped THIS background stamp on a blue and red A2 panel in coordinating ink for a tone on tone look. I cut each piece in half and adhered...

I created a base to adhere everything down to by tracing the inside of the heart die and cutting it...

Cards for Hospital Heroes

Hi, crafty friends. I hope you are doing well and staying safe. I wanted to create some cards for my sister-in-law and her fellow team of nurses at our local hospital.

You Are Loved Cards

Hi, crafty friends. I have a few cheery cards today with a message that I think it’s important to hear. So, just in case you need a reminder, you are loved.

Hello. The majority of the cards I send out is for fellow crafters (a.k.a. my tribe). I’ve had some fun crafty themed products sitting on my desk for awhile and wanted to use them to create a few interactive cards for my crafty friends… I started by die-cutting THIS die from THIS fun foam.
