Thursday, April 14, 2011
What????  That's a perfectly fitting name for this lovely set of cards.  How on earth could you describe these cards with just one or two words?  Believe me, we tried, and it just didn't work.


These cards were made with the oh-so-versatile Wild Cards cartridge.  There are 5 cards with 5 coordinating envelopes, for multiple occasions.  This is a kit, and was designed by Becca Rees.  Doesn't she do some fantastic work?  She's only making 25 of these kits, so they won't be around for very long, and this is a GREAT way to learn how to use Wild Cards, which can be kind of a tricky cartridge if you're not familiar with it.  To order, email me at moniquegriffith@yahoo.com.  See below for details...


The kit will include all of the patterned papers, cardstock and ribbon that you need to create the 5 cards and 5 envelopes.  You'll also get detailed, yet easy to follow directions with our Cricut Cut Chart that shows you line by line exactly what you'll need to cut on your machine, with sizes and settings for each cut.  Plus there are well-organized written instructions and plenty of color photographs.


To make this project as shown, you will need the following supplies:  Cricut Expression and mat, Wild Cards cartridge, dark brown chalk ink, 3D pop dots, white gel pen, brown pen, Diamond Stickles, ruler and scoring bone, glue pen, plus basic tools and adhesive.


The complete kit is $25, or you can always order just the directions for $10.  Shipping is available and ranges from $5 in California to $6-$9 in the rest of the US, depending on location.  We're happy to combine shipping, and you won't pay over $10 combined shipping, even if ordering multiple kits.  This might be a great option for those of you who ordered the Toy Story kit, R is for Rabbit, or the Elegant Cards.  This Springy Sunshine Blossoms of Life Flowing Through the Bubbly River of Breezy Happy Moments Card kit (whew!) will be ready to ship April 28th.


To order, just email me at moniquegriffith@yahoo.com.  Include the name of the kit(s) you'd like (ok, I'll let you abbreviate the name just this once!), your state or zip, and preferred payment method (PayPal or check).


Speaking of cards - I have a little request for those of you big-hearted card makers out there.  This is something little that you can do, but will make a big difference.  My very good friend, Brenda, has a son - Greg - who is in the military, and we would really like to let him know how much he is appreciated.  Brenda has had a very difficult year and faced tragedy that I pray none of us will have to face in our lifetime, and this is something that would mean so much to her.  If you are able, please join me in sending a card to her son to thank him for his service.  Here is his address...

SR Riley, Gregory
SHIP 12 DIV 158
Recruit Training Command
3515 Sailor Drive
Great Lakes, IL 60088-3515 

And don't forget to leave a comment here on the blog for Becca today, and it will enter you for this week's blog candy, which is a collection of 5 Liquid Pearls and 5 Stickles.  Yummy!!

Awesome designs. I'm so excited b/c I actually have this cart.

Crafting Katie said...

Wow! These are incredible! I'm trying to figure out what makes them so much prettier than any Wild Cards cards I've seen before. I think it's a combination of the inking, patterned papers, and stitching. Beautiful!

Oh my goodness...I want the kit! Becca, they are just adorable! Do you girls know how hard it is to see these beautiful kits you put together and try to resist buying each and every one of them? I do want them all, but my bank account tells me I can't. I will live vicariously thru you girls and look forward to getting my order at the beginning of May. Hopefully I can resist this, but I don't know...I may be back. BTW...please don't stop...I don't mean that at all. I love what you share w us!

Brenda said...

These are the most adorable cards! I love the papers that were used, they all just flow so nicely! I think there is too much talent in one family!!! LOL I would love to send a card to Brenda's son, I too am Brenda and I too have 2 sons serving in the military. One is currently in Afghan, my full time military son is home for now, just came home in Aug from Iraq, he will be leaving for Afghan after the birth of my second grandchild from them. I know the sacrifices that military families makes and our soldiers. I also know the dangers of being a soldier, my DS was stabbed at the beginning of the war, but thanks to God he survived and even stitched himself up to boot! So God Bless all our soldiers and military families!!!

Melissa said...

These are just adorable, Becca! I've been thinking about matching my envelopes to my cards instead of dressing up the plain white ones, and you have sparked the creativity in me to get it done! Really wonderful coordination of colors, too!

Di Denson said...

I would love to send Gregory a card, is there anything else that he needs. Also if he has any buddies that need cards he can let his mother know and then you can let us know. Our young children bear so much for us to have our freedom. This is the least we should be doing.
