I got to thinking of all the wonderful things my hubby does for me and our daughters. Sometimes I worry that we don't show our appreciation enough so I decided that a thank you card didn't have to wait for Father's Day to let him know how much he means to us.
I love this cut file from Paper Crafting World. It's Card Dad Fixes Everything which comes in both cut file and printable form. It was so easy to cut and assemble.
I cut it on my Silhouette and die cut the label to add the "thank you" stamp. The die and stamp are from Jaded Blossom. All the papers are from my scrap folders.
Paper Crafting World has such a large variety of cut files, digital stamp images, and print and cuts. Be sure to check out the store by clicking the link above.

It's my turn to post for Paper Crafting World.
Today I'm sharing a birthday card I made for a special friend. She's not really girly-girly so I thought the cut file I chose along with papers were suited for her tastes. She does love sparkle, however, so I definitely had to bring that element into the design.
I used the Friend in Me Card cut file. I swapped out the flowers in the original file for these rolled roses found in the Rolled Scalloped Rose 3D file. The patterned papers are from a 6 x 6 pad called Sassafrass. I added Stickles to the flower edges, Doodlebug Designs sparkle sprinkles and stamped a sentiment from Jaded Blossoms's Superstar set.

Hi Crafty Friends,
My turn to post for Paper Crafting World.
I decided to use a few new products and techniques on my card.
I started with the Butterfly Fairy CF set. When I imported the file into my Silhouette, I made a few changes. First, I separated the wings from the fairy. Then I duplicated the butterflies so I could stack them and finally I duplicated and flipped the flowers so I would have a longer row. I did not separate the pieces into like-colors because I decided to use everything as a print and cut. I sent everything to my printer and then cut the pieces on the Scan N Cut2 (the SNC really makes cutting printed images easy peasy.)
Once I had all my pieces, I got busy with my Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens and added wonderful glittery shine to almost everything.
I popped up the image on the wings and folded up the butterfly wings for more dimension. I also added a bit of rick rack and lace from my stash. I framed the fairy using Jade Blossom Scallop Dies and added Nuvo Crystal drops all around. A little highlighting with my Prisma Water Color pencils and Tombow blender and I called it finished. It's a little different style and technique for me but I had fun using more of my machines and supplies.
You can find the Butterfly Fairy Cut File Set HERE.
