75 Cents Kaiser Craft Cards

Kaiser Craft 75 Cents Collection - Cards
Designed by Anita Mulcahey

Here are my fun cards for my DT post for The Hens' Den.  These colors are just so gorgeous and so much fun to work with.  You simply must stop by the store and get some of your own before they are gone.  This card was cut on my  Silhouette and is called a box card.  What a fun idea, it folds flat.   I used a black Sharpie to color the Petaloo Color Me Crazy frame and it came out amazing.  I love how wonderful this is, and it was so easy to create.

I decided to make a second card and have been wanting to use a pie chart on my projects and found this awesome one in the Silhouette Store.  It highlighted the gorgeous papers so well.  These cards are so fun and both fold flat for easy giving and mailing.

On Bended Knee Featuring 75 Cents Collection Kaiser Craft

On Bended Knee Featuring 75 Cents Collection by Kaiser Craft

I received such a wonderful kit this month to play with.  Kaiser Craft 75 Cents Collection is just so elegant and you can do so much with it.  My 21 year old son has been dating his girlfriend for 8 years and this past March after her spring break he sent her around town on a scavenger hunt to all their favorite places.  He had two of her best friends meet her at each stop and give her a red rose.  He was waiting in the church they will be married in with a white rose, in a new suit ready to propose. 
We are so lucky that he values family so much as he let both her family and ours be in the balcony of the church to see him propose.  We couldn't hear what he was saying but my heart just about burst when he went down on bended knee.  I am so proud of this amazing young man and love his fiance dearly.  We are looking forward to an October 2015 wedding after he graduates from college.
This paper line worked so perfectly with the photo from the church and I would hurry on over to The Hens' Den Store to get some before it is gone.

I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut this gorgeous heart lattice as well as the frame and scallop border.  I love how much I can do with this wonderful machine.
