Month of Cards: Part 4: Finally Done!!

Whew, I think we have made it to the other side. Don't get me wrong, making cards is fun in its own way, but when I spend so much time just making cards I really start to miss making layouts! I am hoping I will be able to find some time next week to work with photos!

I drew inspiration from several places for these last cards. This one, for Will's first birthday last weekend, started as deciding which cut to use from my "Boys Will Be Boys" cartridge. The colors then came from the background paper I chose. I have had half a sheet of that license plate paper sitting around for a couple of years now, I thought it was about time to use it!

Next, I used a video tutorial from Frosted Designs for this wedding card. It was so easy and fun! If you have a wedding card to make any time soon, I highly recommend trying this design!

For the last two cards, I turned to some trusty sketch blogs. For this shower card, I used the current Cardabilities sketch. Everything except the scalloped circle were cut using the "New Arrival" cartridge. It is a little hard to see, but the letters in the banner in the top left spell "baby."

Last, but certainly not least, is this graduation card. I used the current sketch at Card Patterns for this one. Another great sketch to work with! The only thing I did to deviate from the sketch was to add the cut sentiment.
