Card Set #1

This is the 1st of several card sets that I'm planning to make as Christmas gifts for some friends this year.  I was able to get this set of 6 done on Friday evening while I was at the monthly Creative Memories crop I go to.  It felt like forever since I'd been to crop as I had to skip the July one due to my BILs wedding.

I didn't use the Cricut on any of these cards.  My MIL had forgotten her mat and as I didn't bring my Cricut to crop as I had planned on sharing hers....both of us were sadly left without use of the cricut. :)  However, I did have several border punches with me and some embellishments and ribbon.....I really like how they turned out.  Sometimes simpler is better. :)

Each of the 6 cards, has a different sentiment - they include:  'Make a Wish', 'Celebrate Today', 'Birthday Fun', '{Hugs}', 'Get Well', 'Just Because'.  I tried to use sentiments that were somewhat generic so the cards could be used for several occasions.  The sentiments were stamped using My Pink Stamper stamps and PaperTrey Ink's Mixed Messages stamp set.
To package them, I decided to place all 6 cards (with envies) in a plastic bag and attach a bag topper.  This was my first time doing this, but I'm pretty happy with the end result.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek.  I hope you've enjoyed these as much as I enjoyed making them.

Have a great day.....

Hey-hey, Sparksgal! All your cards are so pretty. I hardly ever use Cricut for my cards -- I don't know why but it just goes to show you don't always need your Cricut for beautiful cards. I think it shows your talent and creativity when you can just create your sometimes! Great job!
