BBTB2: Cricut - Mother's Day Step Fold Card

Can you believe I have never made a step-fold card.  I easily found the instructions on Pinterest, and had the card cut and scored in just a few minutes.  I had come up with the images I wanted to use before I envisioned them on a step-fold.  I really like how it turned out.  This card is for my daughter, who has 3 children, and sometimes amazes me with her ability to hold it together.

I made this for the Mother's Day Challenge at Bitten by the Bug2, which starts today and runs for two weeks.  Join in the fun and link up your project and see the artistry of our Designers.

I used Cricut images for the saying, children, slide, and teeter-totter.  The swing-set is hand cut from paper.  I inked many of the pieces as well.  It was an easy, fun to assemble card.

Mom saying:  Strong as a Mother
Children:  A Child's Year
Teeter Totter, Slide:  Playground Equipment (hadn't seen this cart before today)
Folded Card and Swing Set:  Hand cut

BBTB2: Cricut - Chinese New Year Envelopes

Chinese New Year was in February,   I saved the pictures of the red envelopes I made for this week's Bitten By the Bug2 post, which is "Boxes".  These were really easy to make.  One cut makes the envelope, one glue strip, and a few folds makes it into a pillow box.   I took the Pig image from Cricut Access and put a yellow box around it, printed it, cut it out and then glued it to the box.  Instead of money, I put in treats.  I also made these for a scrapbooking crop I went to the weekend before Chinese NY as a little memento of the day.

Join our challenge at Bitten by the Bug2, which runs for two weeks by linking your card or project containing a box.  Have a great day!
