Happy Father's Day Shirt Card

Hi Everyone:
Anita here with a really easy and fun last minute card that you can make for the fathers in your life.  This card is called Happy Father's Day Shirt Card and you can find the file here in Lori's shop and here in the Silhouette Design store.  I used one of Lori's newest Echo Park collections called All Boy.
The card comes with an envelope cut file as well which is a great way to send off this cute card.  Thanks for looking and have a great day.

June Lori Whitlock Blog Hop

Hi Everyone:

Welcome to the June Lori Whitlock Blog Hop.  I just became a grandmother for the first time and we were with our son and daughter-in-law in Ohio when they went in for his birth and when they came home.  Given how many things from her pregnancy were different than what we hoped given Covid 19, I wanted them to come home to a wonderful celebration of sweet Henry's birth.  I repurposed some cardboard for the main sign and made all of the smaller signs as well and brought them with me from MA to Ohio to decorate their home for the baby's arrival.
You should have come here from Kathy Skou's blog and will next be going to Brandie Harding Adams' blog.  If you didn't get here in that way then you can start at the beginning at Lori's blog.  I used the following Lori Whitlock files which you can find the links for below:
Baby Boy Onesie Card Kit in Lori's store and in the Silhouette Design store
Lori Whitlock Font called Thick in Lori's store and in the Silhouette Design store
I used a bunch of fun Petite Prints from Doodlebug as well as some of their solid cardstock for my signs.  I also used some Doodlebug Puppy Love Odds and Ends to embellish the signs.

Thanks for looking and happy hopping.

Pop Out Card Heart 35th Wedding Anniversary Card

Hi Everyone:

It's my 35th wedding anniversary today and I made this card for my wonderful husband to celebrate our love.  We had a wonderful European cruise planned to celebrate but given these uncertain times we had to cancel.  We are looking forward to trying again in 2021.  In the meantime, we plan a quiet celebration.  I have no idea where the time has gone though.  I used Lori's Pop Out Card Heart which you can find here in her store and here in the Silhouette Design store.  I also used Whole Heart Whole Life which you can find here in Lori's store and here in the Silhouette Design store for my sentiment.  I used Lori's new Echo Park Paper line called All Boy to create the card.  This card folds flat and fits nicely into an A2 envelope.

I took the Whole Heart Whole Life sentiment and shrunk it to fit in the center of my heart.  I then grouped that together and used it as a print and cut sentiment with the registration marks turned on in my Silhouette Cameo.  When I went to cut the heart out after it was printed, I ungrouped it and moved the sentiment off the mat.  I cut out the heart and it came out perfect.  

My husband really appreciates home made cards and in this time where it is harder to get out to buy what we want, don't forget that Lori has cards and gift giving items for every occasion in her store.

Thanks for looking and have a great day.
