A friend just recently had her second girl so I created this card for her. I will post later which Cricut cartridge I used. The butterfly maker is from Creative Memories. It is the perfect size for cards.

Next on the card creativity list is a birthday card for one of my Peeps. I have got to have the most talented Peeps so I felt I needed to step the creativity up a notch. The double mat is vellum, the top layer is cut from Ornamental Iron (I believe, I will double check) on the Cricut. The paper used is from Creative Memories, from the Nancy O'Dell collection. I love the soft muted colors. I used sheer ribbon from Joanns Fabrics to make a triple bow.

My niece will be turning 17 next month and as with any teenager, she is hard to buy for, so I usually give her money as a gift. When I came across a pattern for a pretty money envelope, I thought I'd give it a try. I was disappointed that the inside liner didn't line up well with the envelope but I'll play with the directions a bit more. I am hoping by the time she is opening the envelope she'll be so excited about the money she won't care the lining isn't perfect. :)
Many pieces on this set of cards was cut on the cricut from the same pattern from my gypsy, however after finishing one card, the second card morphed out on it's own. lol The one on the right was the first card, the one on the left the second. I guess this is the best I can do making identical cards. hahaha
