I'm so pleased to be sharing today's project over at My Craft Spot today. Last week, my youngest was off at camp and I had such fun creating these little cards for him so he could have a little bit of love from home each day!
Each of these cards was made using Create a Critter - for the card base and the critters themselves. I used a Darice embossing folder for the clouds and a Fiskars punch for the grass. The snow border and flakes on the penguin card were made with a Martha Stewart punch. All sentiments are from My Craft Spot.
I used Alphalicious to create envelopes for each of the 3x3 cards. Each one has a stamp punched with the My Craft Spot Postage Stamps metal dies and stamped with a variety of stamps from the My Craft Spot Postage Stamps stamp set. The border, images, flourishes, sentiments and cancellation stamps are all from this set. I had so much fun adding a little something extra to each of the envelopes!
For the horse card, I used a sentiment from the NEW Down on the Farm set. (The sentiment is actually "HAY there neighbor" but I just used a portion of it for my card.)
For my sheep card, the "Love EWE" sentiment is from Cute Critters. I also added a bit of embossing to my little sheep.
The "Have a Beary happy day!" sentiment is from the NEW Tiny Tags 3 set. These sentiments coordinate perfectly with the My Craft Spot Tiny Tags metal dies.
I realize that the penguin card is a bit different from the others in this set I've created, but my little guy LOVES penguins - so I couldn't resist! I created the "You're cool!" sentiment by combining two stamps from Build a Valentine.
The fun sentiment on this squirrel card is from the NEW Tasty Treats set. I also used some Cuttlebug embossing folders on the acorn and stamped the face with a Peachy Keen stamp. I originally had another squirrel on this card but the face looked terrifying!! A quick return to the Cricut to cut another squirrel and a Peachy Keen makeover seemed to do the trick!
Finally, the sentiment on this fun cow card is from the Cute Critters set. (My husband liked this one the best when I showed him the set.)
Thanks for popping by! Have a wonderful day!
