Damask Birthday!

 Custom Charm with Cricut and Shrinky Dinks!
 Matching Envelope

Sweet Sentiment for a Special Day.

Hi Everyone!

So glad to finally get back here and post this for you.  These past few weeks have been crazy busy.  I haven't had the energy to create or blog at night.  I have had just enough energy to enjoy some of my favorite blogs and leave comments on wonderfully inspiring projects.  So thanks to all of your for your lovely inspiration!

Today I am sharing a card that I made for my SIL.  I wanted a charm to add to the card and just couldn't find the right thing.  So I decided to make a charm with my Cricut and some ink jet Shrinky Dinks.  It really could not have been easier.  I cut the image at about 3" - it shrunk to about 1" after using the heat tool.  (Make sure to punch a hole in it for the ribbon before you use the heat tool.)  Then I applied two coats of Glossy Accents (one of my absolute favorite products).    The card and envelope I made with the Cameo using images from the Silhouette Online Store.  I also used some Michaels ribbon and diamond bling for some sparkle.  The back of the envelope and inside of the card are decorated with hand doodling using a pink metallic Gelly Roll pen and a wonderful wood stamp from Hero Arts.  The sentiment on the front is a studio g stamp and Stampendous Blushing Pink embossing powder.

If you like what you see please leave me a comment.  It means a lot.  Thanks for looking and have a great weekend!
