Butterfly Sympathy Card

I have another simple card to share with you today.  Don't you just love it when the papers you create with speak volumes?  The Mariposa stack from DCWV does just that.  How gorgeous are those butterflies?!
I don't make sympathy cards very often, but this one went to a very special lady who lost her brother at a young age.  She is one of my DT sisters and I knew she would feel the warmth of love surround her even though she lives several states away!
 The sentiment is from a retired set from My Craft Spot.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Love You Card

Here is a quick card that I created with my boys for my husband!  I wanted it to have a masculine-ish feel to it.  The papers I used were from DCWV's Gilded Paper stack and also their Premium Natural Cork stack.
 I popped up the sentiment panel with Scotch foam tape.  The Krazy For Kraft Trendy Twine and gold sequin were the perfect finishing touches!  A quick yet beautiful card.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Marshall Paw Patrol Birthday Card

I must admit.  It has been a long time since I have posted on my blog with something other than a DT project.  Summer was quite busy and I now I hope to catch up a bit on some cards that I made, but didn't take the time to share with you!
 Today, I am sharing this fun birthday card that I made for one of my nephews.  He loves Marshall from Paw Patrol!  I cut out the svg file (free from HERE) with the base of black cardstock, but all the other layers were out of vinyl. I knew they would cut perfectly and were already adhesive, so I didn't need to worry about gluing down tiny parts!  I popped Marshall up using Scotch foam tape.
 The papers are from The Paper Studio's Little Boys and their Toys stack (which I have had forever!)  The stamp I used is from Pretty Cute Stamps and the twine I used is Cherry Midnight Trendy Twine.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

DCWV Nautical Gift Bag

Good morning all!  Beth from the DCWV Social Media Design Team here with you today with a summer gift bag tutorial.
1. Create gift bag using an SVG file. This one was from SVG Attic (It is currently retired, but it is from the All At Sea set), but you could use nautical cut files and decorate any bag file you find. Paper used for the gift bag base is from DCWV’s Coastal stack (available at A.C. Moore stores).

2. Decorate bag with wave SVG files fit to width of your bag using various blue pearl papers from the Coastal stack. You may want to ink the edges of your cut files to add dimension and distinction as seen in the photos.
3. Use a life preserver SVG file and papers from the Coastal stack (white is the flip side of the printed paper) and red from the Brights Border cardstock stack (available at A.C. Moore stores).  Add a length of coordinating twine around the outside and adhere to front of bag using foam dimensionals.
4. Cut an Anchor SVG file using papers from the Coastal stack. Adhere anchor layers together and string In The Navy Trendy Twine through the top of the anchor. Braid the tails of the twine. Adhere the anchor to the front of the gift bag with foam dimensionals. (Tip: The lower right side of the anchor will need two layers of dimensionals and the part that is on top of the life preserver will only need one due to the life preserver already being popped up.) Glue the ends of the braided twine to the inside of the bag.

5. Add layered Enjoy sentiment from Coastal stack on the front of the bag.

6. Embellish bag with wooden buttons using glue dots to adhere if desired.

I am so excited to share with all of you that this project is featured on the A.C. Moore website!  You can check it out HERE.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
