Mother's Day Project

Welcome to Funky Cards

I had a great time last night at a Ustream hosted by Ms. Cheryl from Creative Kuts.  She was sweet enough to give away a free cutting file to those who planned to attend the Ustream.   Here is the cutting file.  Ms. Cheryl explained how to use cutting files and showed us what she made using this one.

I want to share with you today the project that I made.  I am having fun combing cutting files using the Cameo with Cricut cuts.  For this project I used the Pooh Font Set Cricut cartridge to cut the numbers for the year "2012." 

This is a stationary box that I am using as a treat box to hold homemade Biscotti.  My mom is giving this to her mom for Mother's Day so it was made with a teal blue and pink, Grammy's favorite colors. The Biscotti will be wrapped nicely so that once they are gone, the box can then be used for cards or whatever my Grammy would like. 

To add a bit of pop to the paper piecing, I added paper flowers to the girl's hat and basket.  All of the colored card stock was inked prior to adhering the pieces to the project.  This also gives the project more life.  I like to use ink that is a shade or two darker than the paper.

The back has a quote about moms.  There was a space for my mom to sign the project for her mom.

The sides were used to wrap the ribbon.  Flower embellishments were added.

I hope you enjoyed my project.  If you would like to learn more about Creative Kuts, check out the Creative Kuts Blog.

Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!
