I design for Cutters Creek and here are 2 projects I did this week for them.

My co-worker asked me to make her some graduation cards for her daughters who are graduating from high school and college. The first card - it measured 9x6, then on the 9in side I scored in 2 1/4 inch on both sides. The graduation paper I had I added to the flaps on both sides.

The band around the card is 1 1/2 inches wide( cut from the same paper as the flaps) and you make it as long as you want it to be.  I then cut out from Spellbinders Lacey Oval. 

I stamped it with some stamps I had at home and embossed with WOW! Primary EBONY black embossing powder and added some bling under the words.

For the inside I just stamped it Congratulations- something I found at home again.


Here is the second card I made her and it measured 7x5,  I used some papers and ribbon I had at home.

For the middle I typed out from the computer Hats off to you and printed it on white card stock.  The  graduation cap I stamped and cut out and applied Diamond Stickles . I added a white ribbon from my stach and used pop up dots for the middle saying

Mother's Day Card for Cutters Creek

Hello,  For my project this week I decided to make a Mother’s Day card, but instead of a traditional card I made it like a post card.  For the base I used white card stock (4 X 6) and embossed the yellow top layer using the Sizzix Butterflies and Flowers Sizzix embossing folders. (Check with Kim to see if she can order these for you).
Next I cut out some scallop circles (I used Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Circles Small-S4-125- the smallest one, check with Kim to see if she can order these for you )the paper I used for the circles were from ECHO PARK-HAPPYDAYS and other pattern paper I had .I just layered the circle to form a bunch of flowers together , and used pop up dots to give it a 3D look and for the stem some baker’s twine from We R Memory Keepers-green and the bow was red.



On the back I typed out a little saying.

Hope you enjoyed this card and that all have a great Mother’s Day. Please check out Cutters Creek store for any of the supplies on I used here or other items.  Also check out Cutters Creek blog for many other ideas from very talented people.
