Busy Bee Card

Making a busy bee card with Fairy Stamper. #sponsored @fairystamper @fairystamperhugs

With Fairy Stampers

This Busy Bee card is made with the Bees stamp from Fairy Stampers. Today I have a video tutorial on the Fairy Stampers YouTube channel as a part of their video design team. The card design was inspired by my wanting to try stamping on a ribbon and the size of the bees lent themselves to the process.

The patterned card stock adds to the activity of the bees flying. I like how the envelope in yellow relates to the yellow ribbon on the card and the little bee stamp on the flap connects it all together. There is also a little bee on the back of the card which you will see in the video tutorial below.

The above image shows a close-up of the card and stamping on the ribbon. I like how the ribbon with the bees is solid and the ribbon behind the word is translucent.

If you are interested in the Word Art printable file I used for the word busy, it is available in the store [Word Art page] It is a really handy crafting material to have on hand. I printed one version out on card stock and another on sticker paper.

Mother’s Day Card

An SVG to make a card for Mother’s Day. #affiliate

As a mom, I have to say some of the best presents are homemade. I love it when my daughters take the time to make me something. I’d rather they not spend money on me. This Mother’s Day Card is one with a few steps but it isn’t difficult to make. I think any mother would appreciate a handmade card.

I work with a few different companies and with this card, I was able to combine their products. The following links are affiliate links, they cost nothing for you to use and in fact, they help support this site. Thank you for using them.

Materials:

Directions:

Using the free SVG file listed above, cut the white card stock with your personal cutting machine.

I am using a Cricut Maker. I set the red line to score and added the scoring tool.

This card is made from three parts, the cut cardstock,
the polka dot card stock cut just shy of 6″ x 8″,¬†
and a piece of Rinea¬†red foil¬†paper 4″ x 2.25″.
 

I used the Best Glue Ever to attach all the layers.
 

I applied glue around the word Mom and around the outer edge of the Rinea foil paper.
 

The back of the red foil paper is gold.

Hopefully, you can get a sense of the luminous red foil from the above photo.

Using the same process, I attached the polka-dotted scrapbooking paper.
The paper I chose had a white back, making the inside of the card ready for a special message.
The folded size is 6″ x 4″.

Thankful Greeting Card :: Free SVG

A free SVG to make a thankful photo greeting card.

This month I am participating in an SVG hop of free Thankful SVG files. The file I am offering is this thankful greeting card file. It is sized to hold a 4″ x 6″ photograph. Consider sending it to loved ones who can then use it as a nice mat for the photo.

I cut the file on a Cricut Maker. The SVG will work on other Cricut machines.

The free cut file has a red line that will need to be set to score before cutting.
