Birthday Card for a Red Hat Lady

I am always needing birthday cards for my friends in the Red Hat Society. Today I tried to play along with a few challenges. The card is cut at 5 x 6 1/2 inches from dark purple Recollections paper. Of course, I have to use red and purple!

Thinking of You!

I am playing along with RAQ's Card Challenge on the Cricut Messageboard this week. It has been awhile since I have been able to do so and I am enjoying these pretty sketches by Raquel. Card size is 5 X 6 1/2 inches. Using Sketch 1 and needing a birthday card, this is my results!
Cricut Cartridges:
Lacy Labels - Thinking of you and all four cuts for this design. This is the third key on 2nd row and the cut is 2 1/4 inches. Also for the inside, the label is cut at 3 1/4 inches using the first key on the third row.
Wild Card - Happy Birthday cut 6 3/4 inches.
Martha Stewart Doily Lace Trim, gemstones, corner cuts, and inking complete the look.

Hope you enjoy!

Thank You Card

This card is using Sketch 3 of  RAQ's Card Challenge on the Cricut Messageboard this week. I am using the same papers as will be on a birthday card. Two cards--two looks!  I am pleased with the results of the Thank You card.

Inside of card!

Cricut cartridges:
Lacy Labels - "Thanks" key for all the cuts..this is the 1st key on Row 3. The cuts were at 3 inches. However, I wanted the word Thanks to be a bit smaller in width so it is cut at 2 3/4 inches. Cut at 3 inches, the word extended onto the purple mat.
Wild Card - for the inside phrase "How Thoughtful" - cut 7 1/2 inches.
Cuttlebug Polka Dots embossing folder
Martha Stewart Topiary Edge Punch and inking

Hope the recipient will enjoy the card!
