Double Z Fold Masculine Birthday Card

I have been doing lots of challenges and swaps on the Paper Paws Card Making & Swaps Facebook Page.  Recently I had to make a double Z fold card.  After looking at various Pinterest sites to get ideas this is what I came up with.


I used my Cricut Explore and cut out the cute plane from the Pop Up Neighborhood cartridge.



Another view of the birthday greeting, which I wrote with my Cricut Explore.  I really love my Explore.  I just wish my internet connection was better.


A slightly different version of the design.  This one I reversed the plane direction and added the banner.




Christmas Card Swap

I have been doing a bunch of card swaps lately.  This picture is from the Christmas Card Swap I did.


I made 3 different cards per person, 4 people in the swap.  I used the Anna Griffin Winter Wonderland cricut cartridge for the jingle bells and the bell.  The Christmas Tree is from the Winter Frolic cricut cartridge.

Thinking of You Card Swap

These are the cards I made for a card swap.


I used the Create a Critter Cricut cartridge for the tulips and the Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge for the matt.  Embossed the matts with Cuttlebug Divine Swirl or Swiss Dots embossing folders.  Then added some stickles glitter to the tulips and adhesive pearl dots for the finishing touches.


For the inside of the card I used a stamp from Hot off the Press and added another tulip cut.

I am happy with the way they turned out.  My husband bought me the new Cricut Explore Air for our anniversary so I used Cricut Design space to create the cards.  I have to say that I am impressed with it.  I wasn’t sure that I would like having to be connected to the internet, but having all the cutting files in a directory, easy to access, makes up for the inconvenience of the internet.  Love being able to view all of the images.

Glitter Tulips

Here is another card I made using glitter and outline stickers.  The color is peach and gold.  I wish the picture was better.

Supplies used:

  • Cardstock:  Peach Pearlescent Paper, Gold Stardust

Blue Glitter Daisy

Have you ever had one of those days when you knew what you wanted to do, but for some reason nothing seemed to work?  Well that ‘s what happened to me while making this card.  The glitter flower was the easy part.  I just could not get anything to work with it.  I must have cut out at least a dozen different shapes and colors, but I think I am finally happy with the results.  What do you think?

Supplies used:

  • Cardstock:  Creative Memories
  • Patterned Paper:  SEI
  • Spellbinders:  Classic Squares, Eyelet Squares, Scallop Edgeabilities Edge, Ric Rac Edgeabilites Insert A
  • Glitter:  Sparkle N Sprinkle
  • Outline Stickers:  Elizabeth Craft Designs
  • Spectrum Noir Markers
  • Ribbon and Pearls:  My stash

Get Well Card

This is a new card I worked on.

The puppy is from the Doodlecharms cartridge.

                          The front and inside sentiments were cut using                            Spellbinders Labels Twenty-Three.

My idea was from Mary’s Cardz Tv.
