Just For You



Here is a birthday party in an envelope. The recently released Sizzix Birthday Shadow Box by Courtney Chilson is a great deal of fun to create. Because I love chocolate cake with a thin glaze of icing, I used wax paper for the icing. White gel pen and Nuvo Drops help create the 3D look on the card. Foam tape between the window frames and under the decorations, cake, gift and shelves create the shadow box.


The inside carries on the window theme with additional part decorations. I used the yellow window cut-out from the card front as the bottom mat for the computer-generated greeting.




Flutterflies for Birthdays

Butterfly time flies card outside

This was my first attempt at using the Uchi’s Design Animation Card DC101.  The animation comes from the opening of the card that pulls the black bars of the grid strip plastic sheet across the dragonfly stamps to make them flutter. I recommend watching the videos on the Uchi’s website before trying to assemble the card.

Items Used:



A Card for Dad


Cards for men are sometimes hard too come-up with ideas to begin a design.  I had started this card with the idea that it would use one of the Uchi’s Design Motion Crafts animation sets to make gears move inside the pocket watch, but I ended up liking the watch  face too much. I used some Tim Holtz passport-design tape to bind the edges of the ms. sparkle & co. woodgrain neutral paper pad.


The banners were cut and pieced together from another of the Uchi’s Design Animation die cut sets. Letters are die cuts from Recollections.
