The card base for this card is from the formal occasions cart I welded 2 bases together at 5". The duck is cut from create a critter at 3.5" , I used the hide contour feature for the face, then used a PK stamp for the face. I colored in the beak and put glossy accents on the eyes and beak. Inked all the edges did some pen work and added chalk for cheeks. The paper is DCWV playtime stack and SU. I got the idea for this card from Ruthie here.

We are really on the count down to the wedding now, 11 days!! Let the craziness begin! I made this card from the wild card cart, it was cut at 4.25" for everything. All the edges were inked with brown ink and some line work with my gel pen and there you have it. Oh, the envelope was cut out 2 times and then I cut the green off and glued it on the first one.

My little girl made these party hats for her Dad's birthday. She cut the hats from birthday bash at fit to page and then used SU punches for the circles and cupcakes. I may have to get her her own cricut soon. She is starting to think my machine is hers! Well she actually has a cake machine and loves it, she makes cute toppers for her cupcakes.

This little card was made using formal occasions cart for the base. I welded 2 bases together in my gypsy, they are 4" plus all the layers. The flower is from simply charmed and is cut at 2" (I think). I cut the flower out 2 times and popped up each layer. The paper and ribbon is all from SU and the sweet little face is from Peachy Keen stamps. I am entering this in My Pink Stamper design team call, you had to use the colors; green, orange, turquoise and brown plus you could add one other color. I added the pink.

My son is getting married August 5th and so I am making these to put on the tables for the luncheon. I will put mints or something like that in them. The groom was cut at fit to page and that made him 10 1/4" when I did the bride at fit to page it made her 11 1/2" so she was bigger than the groom. So I cut them both at 10 1/4". I embossed the front of the bride added pearls and organza ribbon, for the groom I made a little rose flower and glued it on. The rose is a die from MFT. So now I have to make about 60 of these.
