Happy New Year & a Bday Card

Wishing you a Happy New! We have been under the weather at our house - thought we were going to avoid it this holiday season but no such luck.

I plan to make cards for Birthdays this year. I have my sister-in-law's birthday coming up tomorrow and I made her a card. I do not consider myself a card maker but had some fun stitiching and inking on this one.

I cut a bunch of swirlies from SVG Cuts Swirlies Collection and put some double stick tape on them. I inked the background paper with silver ink and got a subtle background. Love this collection, check it out here.

Here is how my background paper turned out:

  1. You have some nice project using sure cut alot! I use cricut designstudio! Maybe this year I might buy sure cut alot. Is that like cricut designstudio?

  2. Great job Amy, love the card. Did you get my email about fixing the CC Blog?

  3. Hi Judy - Thanks for your comment and for visiting my blog. Sure Cuts A Lot is similar to Design Studio. You can weld, etc. Only difference is you do not need to buy the cartridges. I purchase SVGs from SVG Cuts and also create some of my own using Adobe Illustrator - sometimes from scratch or from clip art. One great thing is I can cut any font from my computer & I have lots! Feel free to email me if you have any additional questions. Amy

  4. Hi Ellen - sent you a message on FB. Thanks! Amy
