Guest Designer – Shawnee Day 1

Hi everyone!! I am so excited to be the guest designed this week at the Crafty Card Gallery. My mane is Shawnee Penkacik and my blog is Blessed On The Bright Side.  I have been scrapbooking since 2001. A few years ago my husband bought me a Baby Bug Cricut. I was addicted and started making cards. I love to encourage my friends and family through the gift of a card.
I got the Crafty Card Gallery app shortly after it debuted and was hooked. It’s the best place to get inspiration and has lots of really wonderful features.

I hope during my time here you will be inspired to be a make a card for someone you love, someone you want to make smile, or someone you know who needs encouragement.

My card for today is from one of my favorite cartridges…Create a Critter. This is a standard A2 size card which I used a really cute piece of paper from a BBQ stack of paper that I found at Ross. I will tell you…besides your local scrapbook store, Ross has a lot of great bargains on paper. I have picked up some of my favorite paper stacks from Ross. You cannot beat the prices.

 My deer is cut at the usual size for me 3 inches. This deer is so cute. Now this card is a simple thinking of you card. But this card could easily be a Birthday card, Just saying Hi card, etc. To make a card stand out. Always mat your cuts, It really makes them pop. 2nd Ink around the mat. You can give a mat definition and add character if you do this. Finally add some bling. (But this was for a guy so no bling)

I hope you enjoyed my simple card today. When you make simple cards like this you can make them easily for friends and family and put smiles on many more faces.
