Flat Shaker Trifold Card

 I am back using one of those trifold card bases I made. This one is stepped up a bit with a flat shaker. All the shaker bits are between two pieces of tulle. I like that I can see elements from the next fold of the card. Hope you give a flat shaker a try. There is a video of course for this card found here.

Tri Fold Card #1


Today's card is using a tri-fold card base I made.  This is super simple.  Great for a beginner.  The only tricky part is lining up each of the cutouts.  But you could skip one if you wish.  Hope you get some time to get crafty today.  See the video of this card being made here.

Simple Watercolor Image- Final Card at the End

I love that I am trying things. I thank Andrea Nelson Art for being an inspiration. My bird has his head going in the opposite direction as the one in her tutorial but I am still pleased.  To see the video please head here.

 This turned out better than I expected it to. I created all the elements for the sunflower and butterflies in Cricut Design Space. I did add a bit of shading using some inks, then put the card together cutting off a few of the leaves of the flower. Then added the butterflies to look as if the flower was turning into butterflies. I added a simple sentiment to leave the focus on the image. You can follow this link to the Design Space Mat if you want to try this yourself. You can also, go here to watch the 1-minute video of how I put this card together.

Easy Watercolored Background-Beginner Level


I am using a simple watercolor wash to paint this piece. I added a simple sentiment, added it to a card base with patterned paper that matched. Simple and easy! The video of the watercolor-painted panel can be found here.
