More Cards

So lately I have been focused on making simple cards, typically with one Cricut cut, some ribbon or a little sparkle and some embossing. I have been using Give a Hoot and the DCWV Green Stack, which has 70% recycled paper and super cute environmental images. The cartridge and paper go hand in hand and make really cute cards!

The first card I am submitting for a challenge at My Craft Spot which is to tie something into a bow! I can not tie very good bows so I had to adjust it. I put the white ribbon down then tied a separate piece of ribbon into a bow and glued it on then tied the button into a bow with crafting cord.
The cut is from Give a Hoot and I had to do some surgery on the butterfly to get the cute swirls right!

I like the simplicity of the card and the basic color palette. 

Here are a bunch of other cards I have been working on lately. I have been using a ton of kraft paper and my white pen to doodle!

I love owl cuts and this one is no exception from Give a Hoot! I tilted the sentiment so it would fit on a branch that I cut from Create a Critter.

The owl is from Create a Critter and I punched the butterfly using a Martha Stewart punch and embossed it with Swiss Dots.

I love this sentiment and I thought it needed a fruit cut to go with it! I cut the strawberries from Preserves.

Another cut from Give a Hoot. I love how the bow and button combo looks and I like the pretty blue flower paper up against the kraft paper.
Last one today from Give a Hoot. I wrapped some twine around the green ribbon to make it look more like a bow. I also cut one of the birds from the scrap paper to put next to the sentiment.

I made this adorable cut from Nate's ABCs, my other new cartridge. I embossed the Shimmer paper with Birthday Stars by Sizzix. I kinked my paper doing that so I covered that with a midnight blue ribbon and used a friend stamp.

When I saw this cut, I though the same sentiment would apply! So cute!

Well, thanks for looking at my massive collection of new cards! I am going to have to post more often so I don't post so many at once!!
