Now to my projects:
First up is a tri-shutter card made mostly with cut files and digital paper from our sponsor this month. For the focal image, I used the Chocolate Birthday Cake. I added more candles to it before converting to print only.
I used Miss Kate’s Happy Birthday Paper Collection and Birthday Girl by Zoe Pearn Designs. The card stock I used is Lucky Limeade and Raspberry Ripple and Whisper White for the print and cuts.
This next project is an adorable little gift card bag I made using a cut file by Lori Whitlock. I think this design is so clever. The focal pieces are situated in a shadow box fashion and the gift card is tucked in the back of the bag in its own little pocket. This file even provides the print and cut images. I used Peekaboo Peach, Island Indigo and Raspberry Ripple card stocks and acetate for the window.
Finally I have a record player. There may be a few of you who have never seen one of these. You have to be “retro” to understand the concept of albums. To make the card I used some Bee Bop patterned paper by K & Company. The paper is reversible so I used it for both the base and the mat on top. To that I added the additional pieces cut from Basic Black, Basic Gray and Cherry Cobbler.
Up next is Sandy! Hope you enjoy every stop on the hop!
