Gosh, another month has whizzed by. For my card for Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge, Using my Cricut Explore Air, I have created a cute birthday card using Okadee SVG - 3D Birthday Puppies. I used numerous patterned papers, but it is really apparent in the balloons. I cut out an additional base in white card stock to make this artwork into a card for a very special girl.

Simply Create Too - Challenge 169 - Stitching (Real or Faux)

Hello, welcome to April's Simply Create Too - Challenge 169 - Stitching (real or Faux). I made up a Covid Card with faux stitching around the face masks and doctor's scrubs. I used a Covid Virus SVG from Etsy, and a doctor SVG from Circuit's, Bears on Parade! For the virus I was able to use some of my ugly patterned paper.

Please everyone stay safe, social distance, wear a mask, wash your hands.

I sent to above cards to all my Adult friends, and the before Easter Egg holders to the fabulous kids I know. The SVG Egg Holder is from Digital Gems, called Doctor and Nurse.

Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper April 2021 Challenge

For April Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge I decided to feature an Easter Card. I made a card and Easter Egg Holder for each of the special kids in my life. For the projects I used both patterned and solid paper. To cut the SVG files, I used my Cricut. The egg holders are from Digital Gems - Etsy, and the 3D layered cards I used files from Okadee SVG. The latter comes with 4 files - bunny, lamb, duck, and chick. I created a back piece to make these into cards, I also glue each layer on top of each other vs adding more dimension use foam dots.
