Crafty Today: Get Well Pop Up Card

Get Well Pop Up Card

Another pop card I made last year for two very special people.  Same steps as this tutorial and I selected all of the doodads from the All Occasion Box Cards Cricut cartridge.  A very cheery, get well card that was well received by the recipients.  I created the card using the original Cricut and now that I have the new Explore Air 2, I might have to try making it again.

I know I have been away from the blog for some time, but my life has had some changes.  Mostly for the good.  I will continue to share my creations and thoughts about crafted living with all of you.  The look and feel of the blog will be changing for the better and I look forward to interacting with you more.  If you are a lover of my photography, then please follow me at crafted.living on Instagram.  Spring has been quite inspirational here in California so please join me.

It makes the world go round.

I used this card as my inspiration for the above card.  You need the following tools and supplies to create this card:

  • Cricut machine
  • Cricut Base Camp cartridge
  • Cuttlebug machine
  • embossing folder
  • cardstock
  • adhesive
  • foam dots
  • heart gem
  • baker’s twine

Fold the white cardstock so it is a finished size of 4.25″x 5.5″ and cut the white cardstock to 5.25″x 4″. Cut the love at 1″.  Run the white cardstock through the Cuttlebug machine to emboss.  Adhere love and heart gem to the embossed cardstock.  Wrap the twine around the embossed cardstock then adhere to the card base using foam dots.

I love the graphic imagery of this card using the classic combination of red, black and white.  It is a very simple card, but the message comes across loud and clear.

I have used this candle imagery before and love the pattern variation.  This cartridge is no longer available, which is a crying shame.  It is by far one of my most used and favorite cartridges.  Cricut, please relaunch Tiny Treasures.  Pretty please!

Cricut Friday: Birthday Card #29

Happy Colorful Birthday!

Happy Colorful Birthday!

I used this card from my Just Cards board on Pinterest for inspiration.  You need the following tools and supplies to create this card:

Fold the white cardstock so it is a finished size of 4″x 8″.  Cut birthday from the Create a Critter 2 cartridge at 1.25″ and happy from the Tiny Treasures cartridge at 1″.  Punch out 5 circles.  Adhere the letters to the circles.  Cut lengths of ribbon and adhere to the card.  Adhere happy circles with foam dots and birthday to the card.

The ribbon was purchased from Michaels and it is part of their store product line.  This means you can make this card in other color ways since the polka dot ribbon is available in multiple colors.  Fortunately, my husband loves color so I knew he would enjoy this card.  And, he did!

Cricut Friday: Birthday Card #28

Happy Birth Day!

Happy Birth Day!

Another birthday card to share with you and I was inspired by this card on my Pinterest board.  You need the following tools and supplies to create this card:

Fold the gold cardstock so it is a finished size of 4.25″x 5.5″. Cut the balloons at 5.5″. Cut HAPPY DAY from the white cardstock using the Quickutz alphabet die.  Tie the twine around each balloon and adhere them in layers using adhesive for the bottom layer and foam dots for the top layer.  Tie the twine together with a bow and adhere to the card.  Adhere the letters to the cardstock.

It is fun to blend die-cutting formats and therein lies the creative challenge.  This card is a great way to use those patterned paper scraps you have lying around.  And, this card lends itself to many color variations too.
