Two cards for Tuesday

Supplies: patterned paper (Dear Lizzy for American Crafts), circle punch (Fiskars), butterfly punch (Martha Stewart), Silhouette Cameo, lace (unknown)

After playing with lace earlier this week I had some lace scraps laying around so I decided to make a quick card for the lace challenge. I punched two circles from patterned paper scraps and punched out a butterfly from one of them. I layered the circles one on top of another sandwiching a piece of lace in between. I carefully trimmed the lace around the edge. That's all. Three circles and a simple sentiment cut out with... yes, you guessed it ... Silhouette Cameo.

Most of the cards I make go in a basket that I keep inside the bookcase. I don't have a particular recipient in mind when I work on a card. When my girls need a card they go through the basket and pick what they like. Last week I had one of those rare occasions when I needed a card. Eli was invited to a birthday party and that's what I made for a little boy that turned 5.

Supplies: patterned paper (Basic Grey), stamp (My Favorite Stamps), markers (Faber-Castell), letter stickers (Simple Stories), brads (unknown), corner punch (Fiskars)


Do you realize that tomorrow is 12/12/12? Do you do anything special? I had big scrapbooking plans but I am not sure how it is going to happen. I am not ready! Oh well, I hope at least to take 12 pictures and finish my Take 12 project.
