Today is Hug an Australian day. My boss happens to be an Australian so I made these for the department so everyone can give her a hug. Each of the bags contains 2 Hershey hugs. I made 44 of them. I wish I could hug my friends who are in Australian. Sending you all virtual hugs!
I did this birthday card for my daughter in February. The stamp is by Unity and I loved it so much, I had two so I did this card and gave my daughter one of the stamps, I did a little pop up inside. The pop up is a Stampin Up die.
Today's cards are both those large cards I am doing for work. They are 5.5 by 8.5 inches. The are both done with Silhouette cut files. I really like that I can size the files to fit the card I am doing.
The purple and teal card has some bling added because the paper stuck a bit to the adhesive cutting mat. Usually I would just flip it over but in this case, I couldn't.
Continuing on my love of pop ups, Here is a carousel that I also cut from a Silhouette file. I had to do it the same way as the piano but it too many more sheets. after being cut, I would hand cut the individual parts.
I love pop ups. Pop Up books, cards, art. Any popup! It is so fun to open! This was a Silhouette file I got. The silhouette designer didn't give any help to do more than cut it. I cut it out of black and a colored paper. I removed the piano from the colored paper and layered it over the black layer. I cut the small keyboard out of white as well. Then, I took two pieces of purple cardstock and layered them as the front and back, sandwiching the black layer in the middle.
It is decorated with peel-offs, washi tape, and embossed paper.
Here is another big card for work. The deer and trees are cut with Silhouette. The words are from a Stampin Up die that I trim. It is a cake die for doing pop up cards but it is a nice size for these big cards so I have used it several times. The Silhouette files work good here because I can size them for the big cards.
