Making Cards

Yesterday I worked on making a birthday card for my Mom.  The first card I made I was following criteria for a challenge on the Cricut Circle Blog.  My Mom loves anything with sparkle and animals so I thought this would be a cute card for her.  The zebra is cut from the Create A Critter Cricut cartridge along with the word "Fab."  The flower and circle shapes are from the George cartridge.  I used Stickles to add some sparkle to the zebra's black stripes and to the word "Fab" and the hearts that are attached to that.  My Mom and I are going to Myrtle Beach next week for a cross stitch retreat so I'm going to take this card with me to give to her with her presents.

The next card I made is the one that I put in the mail for my Mom to have on her birthday.  This one will be her favorite since it's got a cat on it.  My Mom is crazy for cats!!!!  The cat on the card is a layered piece that my Mom brought me back from England last  year.  The pieces came separate and I  used 3D foam adhesive squares to put it together so that she had lots of dimension.  She really turned out cute and it was hard not to keep her for myself!  But, I know my Mom will absolutely love it since it's a cat and has lots of sparkle!
