HA HA...I know it looks like a Halloween card but its my sons birthday card. He Loves "Nightmare Before Christmas". (he has a tattoo of this guy) so I had to make a card....HA HA
The background paper and the tags are in the silhouette store and I googled "nightmare before christmas"
I did a trace and cut.
My son LOVED LOVED his card....
How CUTE is this!!?? The "Turkey place card" is from the silhouette store and I turned it into an address label. HA HA HA... I made the white address area a little bit wider....grouped it(no cut) then did an offset (cut) its 3.05"w x 3.17"h. Printed everyones address on it too. This is my sample on the envelope... LOVE IT!!!
I scraplifted this idea from "sincitychix" on the cricut message board.
On the front - the turkey is from the cricut cart-Simply Charmed cut at 2.35"h and the banner is from the Silhouette store "give thanks acorn banner" (giving cut at 2.25"w - acorns cut at .54"w). I used a single strand of orange embroidery floss to thread the banner. 5/8"w ribbon.
The inside - was done on the silhouette and the turkey leg is from the silhouette store too.
Ooppss....When making envelopes I usually go to Hobby Lobby and stock up on their cheapy paper (especially when they have a SALE)....Just the other day I went to HL and got some "FALL" paper for my thanksgiving envelopes. Remember last Halloween I made address labels, well...I made Thanksgiving address labels and NOPE!! the address label got lost in the "Fall" design. OH Oh....I need "plain" colorful paper.....but I wasn't going to run back to HL which is on the other side of town.....I had to go to Office Depot for computer ink and LOOK WHAT I FOUND!!!!!!!!!!! OH! So PRETTY!!!! and they have a lot more colors too I just got this "sample" pack...HA HA HA!!!! I know prices vary...but a 500 sheet pack comes out to .03 cents (that's THREE CENTS A SHEET) WOWZA!!! My "fall" paper from HL was .22 cents and that was on sale...LOL!! I think I'll make "plain" colorful envelopes for now on.....
FYI- Office Depot has these colors in cardstock weight too.....hummmmm...card and envelope that MATCH! I just might convert....
I've made my envelopes and 24lb makes a nice envelope.
A co-worker asked if I could make a baby shower goodie...The theme is Minnie Mouse and its for a girl.
So this is what I came up with.....HA HA!!!! I LOVE THEM!!!! SO CUTE!!!! and EASY!!!
I found the baby shoe in the silhouette store I sized it to 5.530"w x 9.095"h and I googled Minnie Mouse and traced/cut it at .945"w x 1"h and ran it thru my xyron then tied it with pink yarn. Theres 50 baby shoes or 25 pairs. The actual shoe is 1.25"h x 2"w at the toe and tapers to 1.50"w at the heel x 3.50"l
I can't believe how CUTE they came out and they were so EASY to put together.
FYI- after cutting the shoe: lace the shoe (yarn) and tie then add the decorations(Minnie Mouse) then glue your shoe together...I used Zip Dry glue the the Scotch Quick Dry was not quick enough...ha ha ha
