Mom's Birthday Card

I will not take credit for this card and I hope its ok with the artist that I 'borrowed' it. It was fun to recreate it without the stamps or punches. I can't thank you enough for helping me with the leaves. I think I could have made them but it would have taken me a whole lot longer! I'm so slow. The punched edge took me most all day yesterday to figure out but I'm glad I persevered cause it taught me a bit more about the Sure Cuts a Lot program and using my Cricut. I can browse these card sites to see their work and hopefully, someday, when I have more time, I can design my own too. This was the first time I've added stitching to my cards and it won't be the last time. It was so funny to be sewing on paper instead of material and I really like the look it gives the card. I ended up using a grunge overlay cause I was too tired to go to town to buy any ink. I've got an ordered placed for some right now, along with some more card stock and some ribbon.
The card is designed by Besty Weldman and her website is Paper, Scissors and Superheros.
Pin It!


  1. Nice work. It look really nice.
    It also looks like it would be fun to do.
    I never have a card when I want one.

  2. I don't usually have any done up ahead of time. I used to do cards for all my family but have got really slack the past few years. I still do for my folks and if I think of it, for my sisters and brother but most of the time I forget. I have this old card program (Create a Card Gold) and never use it but I love the address book in it. It used to let me know each birthday at 8 am each day but for some reason its not been working right since I put it on XP and I keep forgetting about trying to fix it. I need to copy it to the laptop and see if it works on Vista.
    Which reminds me....I was looking up mom's address and noticed that I forgot your anniversary this month! I'm so sorry.....I hope it was a good one and that you and Brent got out and enjoyed yourselves.
    Thanks for the was fun once I figured out exactly how to do it. I need to get started on one for Gavin....his is the 11th of April. But...Jerri Ann is still hounding me about her calendar. I thought I'd get some of it done this weekend but it didn't happen.
